Asked by Dec 22, 2008 at 01:20 AM about the 1989 Toyota Celica GT-S Coupe

Question type: Car Customization

hi everyone   i have a 1989 celica gt-s with a bad 3s-ge in it .... spun rod bearing
so ive decided to go the extra mile and save for the 3s-gte (MR2) $1600


i know i cant just throw and engine in and bolt it up and start it
i know i need other things ECU and such and ive researched

but im wondering if anyone has done the swap before and could help me out and
get me a list of some parts im going to need

i think with that year you could put in a ...1.8L....turbo i think... i own a 92 celica. but heres the real question how many parts have you found for you celica at parts store? i have to buy all dealer!

i know for a fact that the 3s-gte engine fits but the tranny is my only problem i heard the mr2 tranny has different lines so they wont match up but i heard the camry v6 tranny will bolt right up

3s-gte from a 1989-1993 celica gt4 (known as all track in the states) should bolt right on to your original gearbox.

scrap that thought ..... i found another 3s-ge to throw in so ill just stick with that so atleast i know about my engine in my car ...
