So i desided. That since the swap isnt happening in the blue coupe anymore
i should make a new thread for the new celica
So lets get to some pics


So this is the new one
I just bought her off of dakotah( dakotahwatt) the 5s just let go an blew the rod on cly 1 so she was done an hes fed up so i jumped on buying her


Me an dakotah starting the tear down

Me removing the bumper

Us removing the radiator

The hole in the 5s block

starting to pull 5s



The 5s out an the 1mz setting behind waiting for a few more parts

Favorite pic the jackhandle going through the holecin the motor

Finally the empty engine bay

Pic of 1mz
Hopefully alot more to come soon
Orderin the clutch from southbend soon an ordering a stock flywheel tomorrow
Sending the wiring harness out sometime next week
Lookng at getting a aftermarket radiator
Probably getting a new drivers axle too
That should be the bulk of what i need to get her running
Ive got around 1300 to get her on the road
Lmk what you guys think

You going to be using that urethane front engine mount? Or can I call dibs? (dibs if I can)


Oh and you really don't waste time lol. $1300 huh? Man... V6 swap keeps looking more and more fun... I'm a NA kinda guy. Turbo's just mean more issues and I DD my Celica. But I wouldn't mind a bit more punch in the ole seat dyno. Going to see what my 5S feels like after cams and exhaust, then I'll determine what I want to do. I do like watching these V6 swaps though.

Im using the mounts sorry rabid lol
Im hoping to have the whole swap including the car for 3300
To me this swap makes the nost sence. Everything. Is state side so the engine is cheap
Parts are cheap an easy ti find.
Make almost as much power as a 3s . Lots of choices in engines
Only 2 real cons i see is wiring can be a nightmare and you have to make a custom mount
Everything else seems just as easy as a 3s swap

yeah the v6 is a good swap option. only thing that might be an issue is the wiring. everything else pretty much follows a 3s swap, or is well known(pass mount)

i got the v6 mounted within 2 hours lol. just like dropping in a 5s IMO
