That is second generation Celica and engines applications are: 2.2 L I4 20R/// 2.4 L I4 22R//// 1.6 L I4 2T, 2T-G & 12T//// 1.8 L I4 3T & 13T///// 2.0 L I4 18R, ////18R-G & 21R But with enough time and money you can put a V6 From the older Camry also

You sure are right. That 20R was only 96 hp at 4,800 rpm (90 hp in California with emissions package) At least the 22R 2.4L naturally aspirated will get you 112hp at 4,600 rpm and 22R E 132hp with a turbo, and will drop in, but must have all electronics come with
