You have a GT which is a 1ZZ motor; you could swap in a 2ZZ with 6 speed. thumbsup

3SGTE is known to work. Also i think you can drop in a 1mzfe V6 into the celica. just takes money and custom fabrication.

Is it hard to find a 2ZZ cause my friend who tried to find a H22 for his integra was a pain and crazy expensive.

How much power does the 1mzfe have. Is the swap worth the money?

3sgte is about 15 grand. There is really no easy swap for the celica that doesnt require a lot of fab work.

2zz is able to be fitted on a gt. but for all that money, i would pay a bit more and get a 3sgte.
