Ok so I am trying to speed the moving of this car, anyone know where a good place to get another engine would be.. he is looking for a crate engine and wants to go to a yard as a last resort.

01 Celica GT and from what I find out online its the 1.8 1ZZ-FE, I hope thats right.

Autozone wants over 2K for one.

the only way your probably going to find one under 2gs is if your going to turn in a core, and your still looking around 1,800 with that... try looking at www.car-part.com , they are pretty good with having them.

FYI - You should avoid getting the same year engine as the early 1ZZFE had an oil consumption issue. I swapped my 2000 Celica with the 2005 Engine and notice a MAJOR difference in oil consumption.

I've also read this on several other threads & forums.

Best of luck for the engine - hard to find one under 2G's.

I know someone in Chicago that has one he is selling. He was asking $1000 but he just needs to get rid of it now. I bought his Celica and he got a Z. So he has no need for it now. He posts at teamcelica.com

2005 was the last year the Celica was made, not 2006.

are the XRS a special order cuz i went to th dealer the other day and they didnt know what i was talking about!
The XRS model was dropped....Corollas now all come with the 1zz in all three "trims" (CE, S, LE .....XRS = RIP, along with the Celica :( .... at least for now....seems as though the "sporty" toyota segment is the focus of Scions)
