Engine Swap (not 3sgte)

Ok so i know everyone is talking about 3stge swaps (which im thinking about, however the transmission is auto and i hear the exhaust doesn't match up?) but im just wondering about the 7th gen celica engines. Are they able to be swaped in? and if so does it create the same problem with the tranny?

depends on how much money you want to spend. if you used a 2zz, youd have to use its tranny too. it would cost, and i dont think it would be worthwhile compared to a 3sgte of any gen.

if you were swapping a gte in there why wouldnt you swap trannys too. since you are there, why not make it a manual so you can use every drop of power you make. i did an auto to manual swap on my 4th gen. it wasnt difficult at all.

well, of course the cheapest route would be to just rebuild what you got. if you wanna do a swap, i think the going price around tn is it costing upwards of 6 grand. thanks to a freebie, im going to be going all out and putting a 1mz in my fourth gen. im pretty excited about it.

another good option. of course, if you want anything other than a first gen 3sge, youll have to get it imported.
