Motor Swap

Wed Jul 06, 2011 1:44 am

Well, my 92 Celica GT"s motor apparently Seized the top end, and since it's my daily, I looked for, and found a replacement motor. Thing is it's from a 1990 Celica GT Liftback.

Is there any mechanical or electrical difference between the 1990 Celica GT and the 1992 Celica GT?

You only need the 1990-91 ignitor and the 1990-91 wire between ignitor and the distributor?

You will need to use your valve cover, intake manifold (rev 2 doesn't have cold start injector), fuel rail (rev 2 doesn't have cold start injector), alternator (different plug), and distributor (different on rev 2) if I remember all the items correctly. You won't need to switch the ignitor since you aren't swapping electronics.

Oh, that's good. The the head on the motor seized, so I won't worry about stripping it for parts. :D All the parts you listed are in good order. Or gonna be replaced as part of a tune up.
