honestly, just buy a project car that has been built. its the best way to swap. mostly due to cost and all the other.
i just finished a 3sgte/ st204 swap in combination with swapping a friends 3sge beams / st204.
His came from a running swapped car that was in rough shape. mine was out of an st185 all track. his cost in total was 3500$ mine was like 5000$ and his took a weekend, mine, 6 months (trouble shooting, and customer harness).
the GT4 is a nice idea but servicing it can be a real pain. try to find front and rear diff fluid for it and other normal maintenance things.

Today, well two days ago I changed the motor for the 5th time. SO THATS COOL. fun fact, camry motors are nice in plenty at times but are often high mileage. It dosent matter how " bullet proof" or " grandma driven" they had been the rings wont seat right when you start reving them higher then the normal range of an automatic camry.
This intern will cause blow-by and HEADACHE. just rebuild or buy a celica motor....

Today I drove my parts car home from storage, and my white car to work. I know it dosent sound like much but it took so long to even get to that point I try to never take it for granted.

You know you own a Celica when;
A parts car seems like a perfectly reasonably purchase.
You get asked " is that the all wheel drive one" every car meet.
you learned that Toyota does and will change its mind when designing more or less everything every other year.
you get saddened and immediately justify why yours /isn't/ a gt4
the other side of the world will have cooler parts.
when parts shopping you will repeat "will that fit in my chassis?"
bottom of doors, didn't need them anyways, let them rot.
5s-fe, oh you mean 3s swap, oh you mean 3s-gte, oh you mean .....
"its basically an mr2 but the other way"
there is always a big brake upgrade one way or another.
you get told " I like the ______ (supra,mr2,ae86) better"
you google search consists of : Motors that come in celica
5s-fe upgrades
motors swap in celica
beams in celica
beams motor price
v6 swap?

QUOTE (cheela @ Feb 15, 2017 - 2:05 PM) *
hello there! about time you posted then. hahaha
I feel you about the rust and road conditions. mine's gone through the same.
If you wanna meet other enthusiasts, you should try and set up a canada 6gc meet somewhere. I know there's a few members up there that would love to meet up. If it's close enough to me, I would drive up too hahah.

Oh my. I remember stumbling across your celica years ago! it looks so clean and amazing! I love the 7thgen seats and steering wheel! (not to mention the fiber hood!!!!)

long time lurker, but its about time to introduce myself. I've owned a Celica for I think about 5 years now, over the years I've bought many parts cars and done tones of motors in it. Living in Canada has taken its toll on these poor cars being in the terms of rust, road conditions and worst of all the temperature /but/ through it all managed to keep mine afloat.
anyone in this country would understand, but enough about that, I've used this forum for just about everything from motors to internals jeez I've even bough a head and cams from a member on here. But this had left me with a thirst for more, I love the Celica, and Toyota as a whole no question but I love more so meeting people who are equally as enthusiastic about it as I am.
So long story short, hello, greetings, and I look forward to turning wrenches with some of you one day, and there is always a spot in my driveway for a Celica owner in need!

Honestly, I just built a 5sfe, all I did was shaved the head, clean and polish ports, exhaust, and minor intake work. top it off with an aggressive cam (ive got a delta 262 in it) and it makes a nice rumble and drive beautifully. In my personally opinion it sounds like a classic 22re in the old celicas from the 70s. so build it for what you want man, don't go chasing dyno dragons.
For what it would cost to build something like that you might as well buy a cheap SC400 or something.

Started it for the first time in three years, and drove it around the block after blindly picking a motor out of a scrap yard with some mates. there is something really nice about these cars im not going to lie. its charming to think about all the dedication and designs that peiople have put into them over the years. the body, motors, and styling; all speak to what the drivers love, engineering.

I'm not going to lie, I have been following the work of the many v6 swapers that document it, but that being said this BY FAR has to be the oddest thread i have ever read. Why wasn't the car kept in secure storage, with lock n stuff. And the harness, why wouldn't you keep better track to where you are throwing money and where? Its not a complicated process, you can go to any pip boys or partsource ( if your Canadian like me) and get almost complete harness diagrams. Man i feel for ya, its a heart brake to be kept from your goals, and dreams. but. oh. my. god. stay on track, budget, focus 100%. -just saying- and 600+ for any harness is over paying.
