engine swap...

Look I like the 1zz and 2zz engines, there cute. Anyway, I have a 2001 celica and I want to do A radical engine swap. I want a 3sgte from a Caldina in a 7th gen! FWD tranny and Turbo engine that came from the Caldina or the 6th gen celica. I want to be different, and I want to know if there is anyone who has done this.( Besides Rod Millen, thats AWD, not front) How hard could it be and is it even worth it. Maybe i will just by a MK4 supra TT... we'll see
