Has anyone thought of the 2.2 liter tacoma engine in our celicas? Chris rado gots it in his.. Its a 4 banger. They say that that engine is the ideal engine for a import racer (toyota).. Just an idea... Tell me what ya think.

Good luck. :thumbup:
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Nah, seriously, that engine will not fit unless you cut the hell out of the engine bay and even then, doubt it. We have a full tube chassis and a crazy extended and widened front end with custom EVERYTHING. I'm telling you, do not entertain this idea unless you plan to tube and drag the car. You lose any streetability if you try and do that swap. However, if you want more power, I would recommend swapping in a 3S. One guy has finished his swap and is now looking into AWD set up. We are doing mine next fall looking into an AWD or RWD conversion.

Yes and no. We do have a 3RZFE, but it's a 2.7ltr. You can go to our site for more info. http://www.world-racing.com
3RZ is 2.7 stock - I heard TRD punched it out to 3 liters when they built it for you. Your advertised 9.1 : 1 compression ratio shows that they definitely monkied with the pistons and rods (stock is 9.5:1) - Ask Christian - betcha I'm right :D

There was a guy at the race legal drags here in San Diego that had a turboed tacoma 4 cylinder in a 1st or 2nd gen celica and was incredibly fast but I don't know who he is, maybe someone on the board, (perhaps in the socal forum) knows him he might be able to give you insight on the motor and it potential in a 7th gen.
