This thread is a central repository for engine swap questions and will be a sticky. I will link any relevant past threads to this one in an organized fashion to make looking for information on the swap you are interested in easier. If anyone knows of information on a swap (sucessful or not) or a thread that would be worth adding, please reply to this thread with a link to it. Thanks!

I guess there is one other 3S-GTE Celica although it's technically not a swap but the Wedsport JGTC car. It still uses a ZZT-231 chassis even though I would assume heavily modified but if someone has the crazy dream of a RWD 3S-GTE swap in their Celica they could use that as a model.

How about a 2zz in a 1992 civic? :AF: I had a Corolla Xrs and it got totalled.. I miss lift so I think it would be pretty cool to start this project..

Hey some quick question. Do I really have to get the pass. side engine mount? :)

I have a 1zz alt, but I don't have power windows, locks, or Cruise Control, so can I just use what I have right now.

I have the engine, manifolds, flywheel, and throttle body.

I have a 1zz CAI. Can I use it as long as I get a new coupler because of the TB differences?

I'll need a new throttle cable even though I don't have cruise control because of the TB differences?

I still need the Midpipe flange and an ECU and Knock sensor.

I think I have everything after that, if I go by what the thread says I need. Do you guys have any other input? I'm trying to get everything together by spring break so I don't have to miss school. If I miss 3 days they take away my financial aid lol.

Hi guys, Im looking into swaping a 2zz and 6speed trans from a 2006 xrs and Im wondering if taking the 2zz from a corolla will bring me alot of trouble or if its about the same? I know its been discussed recently but I couldnt find it back. Also how much is the wiring cost since the engine im buying dont come with it?

Thank you!
David

Are you including your own labor in that, or was that just parts?
