question about engine swap

I don't know a lot about engine swaps so this may be a stupid question. Would it be possible to put a lexus engine into a 7th gen. celica? Or is the 3sgte engine the best engine to go with at this time? I have been thinking about doing an engine swap and my brother mentioned a lexus engine, which i had not even thought about. My guess is that our engine bay is too small for a lexus engine, if so, are there any other engines besides a 3sgte that go into our car pretty easy? thx in advance thumbsup

The 3sgte is the most common engine swap for the 7th gen celica. Not sure about a lexus engine, but I think it may be too big...

Youll get them most power out of a 3sgte


My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!
