my guess is probably not. since you would need a longer space for the engine and wider for the radiator. just easier and cheaper to buy a supra for $50,000

" Toyota RA63 2JZ-GTE

The 1985 Celica ST was the simplest of the last generation RWD Celicas. The 1997 2JZGTE Twin Turbo (Supra) engine was the most powerful engine Toyota ever imported. Fortunately the (even older) 1979 Supra rear axle bolts right in. So what we have here is a project that spans 1979 to 1997. We had the best pieces to do an ultimate project. The Celica ST is bare-bones and had solid axles, that was replaced with the heavier 7.5 Supra differential (needed to survive the mega horsepower planned from the Supra Twin-Turbo engine). The engine was modified with Toysport forged pistons, HKS metal head gasket, ARP bolts, and the Traction Control bypassed. A massive Toyo Intercooler (XXXXX) the biggest intercooler we could get from Japan, fit behind the modified front bumper/grille. The ECU was modified to Toysport specs. A Toysport aluminum flywheel with twin-discs connect the 6 speed transmission. Unlike the other 7MGTE Celica convertions we had done before, the firewall had to be modified, to better position the weight bias. (On the 7MGTEs we maintained the original W-series transmission location.) Fiberglass Group B fenders (original Toyota Homologation items) were the only non-original body panel. The Hood was lifted 2 at the back to help engine bay ventilation. The 3 stage Supra Twin Turbo fuel pump was installed in the tank. Suspension is with TRD Springs and Tokico Pro-Drag shocks. Now if HKS sends us their TWIN TURBO upgrade|||hint|hint|hint|

that celica is a total sleeper man. and naw the 4th gens and up are a nogo for the motor swap but the 3rd gen i believe will probably be duable as you can see from the pic above.

well... if you had shit-ton of cash, and the desire to do a monster garage-like frankenstien project, i suppose you COULD (i say this very librally) drop a 2jz into a 7th gen celica in a mid-engine position. You would have to redesign most of the chassis and frame, not to mention moving the gas tank, replacing the suspension, removing the backseats, and a whole LOT of stiffening. Oh yeah, not to mention fabricating a new firewall. But when you're done... you would have the japanese equivolent of a ferrari!

Come to think of it, i want to see that. If they can put a jet engine in a celi, why not a midengine 2jz?

Anyone wanna sponsor it? rofl rofl
