mmk, what do you guys think about a first gen celica with a 2jz swap? obviously this isn't a FWD, but i didn't know where else to post. but yeah- i think this would be pretty sweet and not to terribly hard to do. let me know your thoughts.

Think it would be a really tight fit..........not sure on the fun to drive ratio either since weight distribution would be shot. I love the cars though. Want to get one and slap a 22re or rte.

Check out http://www.1stgencelica.com/forum/, they could probably help alot.

why would it be no fun to drive? they're pretty light arn't they? if you built the 2j it'd seem it could be pretty damn quick. there's people who've done it. but yeah, thanks for your thoughts though. um what are the two motors mentioned first? the s2000 ones seems....okay if it was supercharged or turbo'd. anyways- just a thought.

The straight 6 would kill weight distribution ?

> they're pretty light aren't they?

The car, yes, the engine is pretty Heavy.

Quite Fast. But would it turn ? :shrug:

> there's people who've done it.

Certainly. Supra motors are finding their way into plenty of cars.
AE86 Corrolla. :evil:

How about a 3sgte in a rwd configuration ?
A bit lighter, quite a lot of potential for upgrades..
The JDM Altezza(IS250) had a 6spd available too. :D
