Hey i was wondering if it is possible to put a 1994 celica GT 2.2l 5SFE engine into a 1.8l 1994 celica st body? obviously its possible, but what would i need, conversion mounts or is there a place to bolt up the 2.2l mounts without doing any conversion? Or is there conversion mounts i need to get? if so...where could i find some? please get back to me if you have any information. thanks so much and take care, dave

It would, but I'll jump out on a limb here to say - most of us would recommend you not and buy a GT with the engine already in it though. Why? Because the block is different, the engine mounts line up differently so welding and cutting in the engine bay would need to be done. For most, this is beyond their technical range and it would be best just to opt for another route, sell your current an buy a GT/GTS/Alltrac.

There are no conversion mounts as you would think like a Honda.. the physical metal casing for where the mounts are placed in the engine bay are in a different location, an without a conversion independent mount (if those could be designed) are not available.

Good luck.

wow...that really sucks man. thanks for the tip though...really really really sucks...i guess i should just buy a gt right huh? i used to have a 1993 gts before, so i REALLY respect your car...its pretty crazy. so is a 1994 st hatch with 215k and a 1.8l engine for 800. totally not a better deal than a 1994 gt hatch with a 2.2l 144k for 1600? Pretty much sounds like it. i miss conversions like honda (:() boo hoo. thanks again! take care

It would be an awful lot like swapping a 3SGTE into your 6th Gen since the 5S mounts and the 3S mounts are in the same locations. Someone has done that and wrote a pretty detailed account of what they had to do to the mounts. read it here...
