3SFE was in gen2 camry's. Youll spend 10x more than the car is worth trying to shoehorn a 3SGTE in there.

neither one of them is a good idea. you realize the cheapest this has ever been done was in a gen2, and it still cost over $6k, just go buy a better car!

How many miles on your Celica? The engine is probably worth FAR more than what you paid, if it's in any kind of decent running condition.

just head over to some of the celica forums and see if anyone wants to buy a parts car. easily get $1000 out of it, probably more.
