hello there
so i know im not the first to do this. but after two years with my 2000 celica gts, ive finally decided to engine swap to a 3sgte motor.
Im not to sure how well its going to run yet, but there is only one major problem and its the oil pan. its to low
but id like to know what you guys think
thanks

Not a whole lot better.
What are you going to do about the oil pan?
I don't know of any shallower pan that fits. You may have to get one custom made.
It does need to hold at least 4.5 quarts for sufficient lubrication of the turbo and for cooling too.
