I just bought a 1991 Celica and I am pretty ambitious with it. I wanna get at least 250 hp. I want to swap it with a 3vz-fe. Do you think it will work? And how do I do this? And will I have to do any welding?
Not Sure if anyone has done this yet, but probably. The original engine was tilted in order to fit into the bay. A v6 would be putting one side into the hood. To make it , it'll likely need to be lowered, requiring some modifications to the cross member. Also, the engine needs to be mounted in same orientation as designed or a custom pan and pickup are needed.
