In the 71 you will probably gain as much power as you want with a good rebuild/upgrade. Substitute headers, new carb, electronic ignition and you will have as much as you want, so long as the engine actually needs a rebuild. Swapping in a 3fe would be a pain in the arse.

2FE in the 40.

3FE in the 80.

I would trade my 1FZ-FE in my 93 for the 3FE in my 92s any day.

Power is overrated. I like simplicity. I certainly wouldn't do an LS swap ever again. But I'm a purest.

May well be an old thread, but I DO someone who cross bred a 2F with a 3FE and and ended up with a really nice running 2FE.
