Lots of info here on swaps. The 3S-GTE is the most common swap for the 5th gen. This http://www.celicatech.com/forums/showthread.php?81-Thinking-about-swapping-READ-THIS-FIRST should get you started.

Do you mean you broke this?

thats not the part it broke. that the harmonic balancer. the part im talking about is located directly under the crankshaft.

The 5SFE in the Celica didn't have balance shafts -- those were only on the Camry and I believe RAV4 versions of the 5SFE, at least in stock form.

well the 5sfe in my 92 celica came with balance shafts. when the car broke a piston and a conecting rod, all the pices fall into the balance shafts and broke it.
