Recently my 1997 Limited Edition Celica ST AT200 had an engine failure and i wanted to swap in a 3s-gte engine. I was wondering where i could get a good deal on one of these engines and what it would take to install. Thanks

Defgeph
yep, you have to buy a gt tranny and shifter cables

yes you need to get ahold a 5sfe(gt tranny) or if you wanna be safe get the mr2 turbo tranny , those come with an available lsd. i forget the tranny codes but im sure someone will post it

go with the gt tranny... if you get an mr2 tranny you have to make hybrid axles which is combining axles form the gt and mr2 together. then you have to change some parts round to have the shifter cables line up right which involves tapping new holes for bolts. The GT tranny bolts without any modificaton. And yes the GT tranny will hold up to the 3sgte to a certain extent. If you and not looking for hugh power gains, the gt tranny is fine

also will a 93 JDM TURBO Toyota Celica GT4 3S-GTE engine do? or will the gt4 screw it up
fastgt
its the same procedure with the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gen 3sgte ...youre gonna need custom gt mounts to make the 3s fit in your st engine bay

not custom gt mounts just gt mounts.... nothing custom about them.

It would be nice if the webmaters on 6gc.net put a mirror to that site here, b/c it is a very helpful site, but its on geocities.
