Engine Swap?
OK Heres the deal I have a 2000 celica GT Signature Series and the signature doesn't make a difference in this matter I don't think. But anyways I want to know what would be the biggest horsepower motor that I can fit in my engine compartment even if I have to do a little bit of cutting to get it in. I want even maybe a turbo charged motor if possible, but not supercharged. If any, are there any motors that will fit right in that I can sup up a little more. Thanks!
P.S. if you know any little tweaks that I can do to my stock motor other than Intake or exhuast let me know about that to.
Thanks!

just go turbo on the 1zz as everyone is probably going to tell you-swaps are not really worth the trouble-by the time you get all the parts to sup up the 1zz there will be more parts available


respect the gt-s

you can go with a 3sgte but it's gonna run you at least $15,000.

or you could do the 2ZZ-GE swap

or you can turbo it. stage 2 turbo will put you around 300 whp.
