anyone know if the stock gts and gt4 subframes are the same?

and one other question.

has anyone tried to put the mid 90's supra subframe on a gts celica before?

any info would be greatly appreciated.

I dont think they are considering one is an awd platform, and has a 3sgte and the other is fwd with a 5sfe..

ok i didnt think so, as far as the celica sub frame goes. i know the supra is obviously different. i just hope i can fab it up to fit in a gts.

BTW thanks for the answer.

I am going to imagine for a minute that you are wanting to drop a 2JZGTE into your Celica?

Instead of telling you it won't fit. I will tell you this.

You would be better off fabricating everything you need as opposed to trying to make the Supra parts fit your car. I don't see that happening.

i'll be putting my subgrame on my car soon.
1990's gt subframe on a 1992 gt4. i'll tell you if it fits. i hope it does. if it doesn't i'll have to clean and paint the gt4's. as to supra i dont know.

i see this more as an experiment then anything. if i can MAKE it work, great. if i cant, then at least ill have an idea of what i need to do.

Could be done with some fabrication. The front subframe is very similar if not identical from the GT-4 to GT-S. From the mirrors back, however, there are lots of differences BUT I bet if you're good at cutting and welding you could make the floorpan/underbody of a GT-4 merge into the GT-S lower.
