anyone here know if i can swap a 87-89 TURBO engine into a 90-93 celica? that's all i need to know. my brother sold his 3sgte so i need to buy another one. i've never tried swapping a 87-89 TURBO engine into a 90-93 engine. thanks

Yes, but a second gen 3SGTE makes more power.

would it just be put in and be done and just wire or is it "buy clip"? do i have to buy any other extras to put in? it'll be kool if it was just a drop in and wire it. let me know guys. thanks for the help hooligan. i just want something that is affordable at this point. i mean there's only a 10HP difference between the TURBO st185 and TURBO st165 right? by these engines imm talking about the JDM engines. thanks.

easiest would be st185 clip to 90-93 celica. you have everything you need, and wiring would be easier.

well st185 turbo engine costs a little more than i expected so i want to go with the st165 turbo engine. is the st165 more difficult to wire or what?
