Not sure how many of you knew/know about my celica project.

Thought I’d share the progress if you haven’t seen it in a while.

It’s just your every day minivan engine paired up with a 5 speed manual and an LSD(not the drug)

As far as I’m aware it’s the first of any 5th generation celica to have a 2grfe.

First “start” video:

If you don’t like cursing skip the video haha.

Has a 2GR happened for the 7th generation? I seem to recall someone did an attempt some years back for dragracing.

There is for the third gen MR2... Stands to reason most of the swap details should also work for the Celica.

Edit: I was thinking of the 2AR-FE. The 2GR has been done but parts are not as commercially available.

2GR
DDPR did the engineering to make a 2GR swap kit for the Spyder, if you wanted one in a Celica, I'd give them a call.

2AR (4cyl, but much more usable power than even a 2ZZ, well documented process and commercially available parts)

1MZ

And crazy guy with a VR6 swap
...which sounds incredible btw

I'd figure the drooping nose would be a problem on the 7th generation Celica but there is a video on youtube of a guy with 2GR on a dyno in a red Celica.
