I'm looking to do a GT to GTS Swap. I will most likely get the majority of parts from a salvage Celica. How long does this project take most people who are experienced to do?

Hi there !
I'm planning my swap for my LHD Euro Celica GT as I found a 2003 RHD Euro/Uk GT-S crashed in the rear but the motor stars and runs good.
My question is, will I have any problems because of the LHD / RHD conversion ?
Since I am buying the whole car I just need to:
- swap the motor
- change the ecu
- change or keep the GT alternator ( what would you suggest ? )
- change the harness with the GT-S one ( no hacks needed, right ? )
- change the cluster
- change the midpipe/exhaust
...and hope everything will be allright... HOPE :)

I've found a good deal for the car, just 1300$ the whole car and I'm gonna do the conversion with a friend that has a mechanical shop so no labor taxes there.

Thanks in advance !
Radu.

Could one put an FR-S engine in the celica?
I'm thinking that way you could get a CARB legal supercharger, rear wheel drive, and a possible weight reduction (not sure of the relative weight of celica versus fr-s chasis)

only if its showing signs of leakage. change the lift bolts.

if you have no idea about the condition of the engine, i would pull the oil pan and inspect the rod bearings.
