3sgte engine question
ok, will a imported 3sgte engine fit in a 7th generation celicla, what else would need to be purchased to make this work, how much will it cost, and what kind of horsepower could one expect from this engine?

Actually, I believe you can do it for around $10,000. The guy in Florida that was in HCI magazine is thinking about selling a kit.

Don't forget how old the 3SGTE engines are. Good luck finding one with less than 100K on the clock!

Personally I wouldn't bother. I'd just buy a GT4. 10K would buy you a near perfect example of the Carlos Seinz 6th Generation Celica.
