Engine Swap
I'm curious on what everyone thinks about this...I have an 03 GT...Could I swap my engine for a GTS engine..Maybe from a Totalled celica


My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

you need the gts tranny too. And while your at it you might as well get rear disks.

These guys are right. You can do it, but it would be a lot of work and cost too much. In other words, it wouldn't be worth it. Instead of spending the money on swapping the motor, spend it on turbo or other mods. It would be cheaper that way.

whenever you change engines or rebuild an engine it is never the same, trade it up cause its not worth the hassle...
