hey guys, im new to the group and am considering a 3s-gte swap into my celica. i love my celica but it just isnt fast enough with the stock motor. i have found a couple 3s-gte swaps online from some reputable websites. what i was wondering is how difficult is the swap since the transmission it comes with is for an awd and my car is fwd. thanx guys, any comments would be appriciated.

Dont buy a swapped celica... Most of the time when you are doing that you are buying into someones failed project or problem car.

I think what he means is, he found engine/trans combos that people advertise as "swaps". Search ebay and you will see many listings that are labeled "swaps" and they include the motor, trans, ecu, and harness.

buy a s54 trans. it should work fine instead of the awd tranny.

When and IF I sell my swapped celi, it will NOT be a failed project. :nono:

O and as far as the swap goes... You could actually use the tranmission you have right now without much modification, but if your planning on beefin up ur 3s, then listen to the guy above and get an s54 tranny (reliable)

Most 3s swapped celicas are all usualy sold for the same reason.

No u deff dint, nor did i say you did... I was simply stating that mine will NOT be a failed project and is therefore exempt from that statement.

GHOST, you say he can use his C52 without much modification. Keep in mind, he has an ST with a 7afe. So how is this possible?

ok I dint say he can use his C52 tranny.... I sed he could use the tranny he has while I was under the impression he had a GT being that I did not notice he was driving an ST. In that case I retract my statement of using the same tranny he has.

haha i notice everytime a noob comes along asking about an engine or engine mods we all start argueing with one another.
