identifing my engine in my 88 celica alltrac

Postby st165-alltrac » Tue Jul 12, 2011 6:45 pm

So I just bought this 88 celica all trac and first off id have to say its bad ass!! But it has an engine swap and the guy I bought it from says its a motor from a 93 but when I looked at crate engines online the 93s don't look the same and the 94s have the same water to air intercooler that I have how can tell which engine it is for sure????

Ok ill check it out when I have time. Thanks for the help. But you know what's weird is I don't have a vin # plate at the bottom of the windshield?!?! I've never seen that before. And its not that its missing but it doesn't even have a spot for it. :shrug:
