I have a 1995 MR2 Rev3 with a blown engine (4 years of tracking and being double driven so very forgiveable) I can get a 1997 3SGE JDM engine , will it just plug in or does it need anything done.

Don't think it will as the 1997 would most likely be a rev 4. They came equipped with additional EGR gubbins. Therefore it very likely that the ECU pins are different to run the engine correctly.

There is no Egr on it, i dont think Jap imports had egr, someone said they are designed to run on 98 octane fuel.

If they are both rev3 NA and look identical then its a plug and play job.
Have you pics of both engines?

throw the engine loom over so its a plug and play job, in the unlikely case a sensor or 2 are different just use the ones from the blown engine
