I dnt kno much about the engines for the 6th gen. celica...but does any engine from teh years 94 till 99 fit in a 94 celica gt?...because i was look at the 97 3s... i was looking on this site Tiger Japanese (http://www.jdmtigerjapanese.com/details.php?id=3309)

Yes, engines from sixth-gen Celicas fit in sixth-gen Celicas -- it's all the same engine bay.

As a general rule, any engine from an engine bay which can fit the same engine as was used in a Celica is workable (see Camry V6, as it shared the 5SFE with the Celica) though more custom work is required if the engine bay is not configured to accept that particular engine (mounts particularly).

Ohhh... wonder if they include the ECU/Harness with the motor/trans sets. 2nd gen 3sgte motor & trans for <1000!

To add to this.. if it's NOT the stock motor (ex 5sfe --> 5sfe) you'll need to rewire your wiring harness, or get a harness & ecu for the motor.

On tht website some of the motors come with trans n some dont..im almost positive i dnt need a new one cuz i kno my tran can still work for a while with a 3sgte...and so im going to have to buy a new ecu with teh engine?

you will need wiring harness and ecu.

you should have an s54 trans so you should be good there unless you just want to upgrade to an e153
