View Full Version : 1991 Toyota Celica

Not to be "one of those guys" but has anyone here successfully did a 3sgte engine swap? I love my celica like all you do, and i've always wanted to do the swap. Just haven't had any hard evidence of someone actually completing it or where to begin.

There are more than 100, possibly 200 swaps documented on Celicatech. From standard 3SGTE to 3SGTE swaps, to exotic swaps such as AWD V6, FWD V6, RWD I6, etc. There is a slew of stickies located in the Forced Induction forum that can give you more reading.

What engine are you swapping from? Like Murg said there are a lot of them documented on here and I think I've seen every possible swap to a 3SGTE on here.

I did a 1991 celica gt to 3sgte swap in my celica about 10 years ago. Its VERY easy to do if you keep the stock transmission.

I'm doing mine right now. I've worked on cars as a hobby and work on airplanes for a job so i'm mechanically able but you will always run into bumps on any project. mine right now is an electrical hurdle which it shouldn't be seeing as how i got a professional wiring harness made. it just takes time and patience.

Awesome guys! I will definitely read some more on swaps. Really appreciate the support.
