2000 Toyota Celica GT 5spd with a Jdm Gts motor
I cam across this guy selling his car on housten-imports. I didn't think anyone had done this swap... and it even has lift engament at 6200.

It's the same as a regular GT to GTS swap. The performance of the JDM and USDM 2ZZs are exactly the same, it's just the ECU tuning that gives them different hp output due to emissions (and different hp conversions). Either way, I'd never buy a car with that extent of stuff done to it. I can only imagine how many things can go wrong. thumbsdown
