when putting the 7mgt engine in a mark2 the sump must me be changed to the 5m sump and some people cut and braise the oil pickup,ive noticed the 5m oil pickup looks like itll mount to the same holes as the 7ms oil pickup so hopefully thatll make swapping even easier,if anyone has any info on this idea can u please post up?

You can use a 5m pump, but I would recommend getting a new one. I don't know what kind of condition the 5m's are over there, but over here they all have high mileage. The 7m pickup is easy to modify, just 2 cuts and 2 180degree rotations.

I wouldn't use the 5M pump. It doesn't have enough volume...from what I have heard anyway.

yeah spot on ive just found some info on the 5m pickup that says its a high pressure pump where as the 7mgt has a high volume low pressure pump somthing to do with looking after the turbo seals and a few other vital components.

just a tip on modding the 7m pump i took it to a machinery shed and they tested the steel and found it was ok to mig weld,although the welder they used looked a fair bit better quality than mine.they pressure tested it for me and there was no leaks.fitted great in the sump.

Thats very interesting. Lots of people have used 5m pumps. I wonder if they've had problems with their turbos. Its even stated in the celicasupra.com 7mgte swap FAQ to use a 5m pump. Would the 7mge pumps be high pressure aswell?


I'm glad to hear that you can MIG the 7m oil pickup as thats what I did without even checking. Then I just did a water test to check for leaks so hopefully it will hold the required pressure. JB weld would work well too.

I can't seem to figure out why it still lets guest post. I will look into it more next week.

I have thought about getting a temp sensor....but have never got around to it. Go ahead and give it a try. A before and after would be great too, so we can know if the after market cooler really helps. The temp probe really needs to be mounted in the side of the oilpan near the bottom. That is where you will get the most accruate reading.
