nope, like everyone says, the Supra engine (which is in the IS300) is far too big for it to fit in the Celica's engine bay.

but if money isnt an issue then its possible, although I'd have rather bought a Supra with all that money. rice thumbsup

if a swap is possible, and you had the money, then why not do it??? why do american 240 owners do jap motor conversions??? sure it takes money but what good mod doesnt...it would still be a celica but with a engine upgrade...does that make it less of a celica than the next one with japanese parts i.e. Intakes, turbos, exhuast running through it????? post up your arguements cause i KNOW someone is gonna disagree with this! rolleyes i dont mean a supra into celica engine swap but something like the camry engine thats capable of more hp..just want to know if something like that is able to happen...post away you negative people... thumbsup

Well, 180/240 SX owners swap their motors for the JDM Siliva ones because it is more cheaper than getting the Silvia. A lot more cheaper than having to spend the money to cut the front end of the Celica just to fit the Supra engine.

Have you seen the length of the Supra's front end? Thats mostly its motor taking up the space.

the tC has the Camry's engine in it. thumbsup

not negative, just saving you time and money. grin

also it is more possible to swap a supra motor into a camry because of the space available. all you would have to worry about is the swap itself along with minor modifications.

the 3SGTE is the strongest Celica engine.

even if the money isn't an issuse, still why do it? you're spending tons of cash on what? a celica! can buy something faster say like a vette. no matther how much hp you've, it's still a celica!!! nothing intimidating like the sound of a viper, cobra, m575, SLK AMG, etc...
