Ok so down to business, i just purchased a 1987 celica gts. I love it but i can't find any information on them. I have about 2k in cash to play with and i am interested in either moding my engine or replacing it. I really need feed back please help.

Man with 2K to play with, you can do alot of things. It all depends if you drive it every day or of it's a dedicated track car. My personal opinion it swap it to a 3sgte. But I dont have the guts to take a good running motor out of a car. So I am going to race with the 5sfe in mine than swap it later when it blows (if it ever does) I will also mave more $ then. Your call..

thanks for the feed back. I really need to know the biggest pros and cons to doing either. I know nothing about these cars

I was able to get a full GTE swap for just under 1800 installed. Even if you don't wanna go turbo, 2k can get you a well built NA setup as well.

PROS: Massive HP Gain, Turbo, You will be able to beat alot of High dollar cars in a race.

CONS: Wiring and again Wiring, first starting attempts will get you pissed.
