Hi fellow forumers!,

 

Im brand new and this probably is a dumb question, but my first celica is an ST184 and needs a new engine. Im finding it tough to find a low KM one out of another celica, but have seen a few in Apollos and Camrys. Will these fit/work?

 

Sounds silly I know but being 16, Im low on cash and so cant afford to spend money unnecessarily and I cant seem to find a definate answer anywhere.

 

Im Adelaide based btw.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

thanks.

The 5sfe engine is the same as far as i know but all the bolt ons and manifolds, engine mounts and stuff will be different so as long as you swap everything over i can't see why it would be a problem. I have never done it myself so can't offer more specific info though

Less power, also has balance shafts. I think the Camry engine mount bolt holes are drilled and tapped in a different spot, but I am not 100% certain.

Depending on which one you get and what one you have, the s2 st184 had the coil inbuilt with the dizzy like the camry ones, so if you have a series 1 st184, you will need to keep your dizzy/coil setup to switch over to the newer engine. Same with your exhuast manifold.l, wiring, ecu etc

Other than that itll essentially bolt straight in.

The power difference is negligible, and fitting your ecu will prob bring it back to the same level, the only difference maybe if the balance gear saps some power....

Later model Camrys (ie SXV20) did away with the distributor altogether too and rain coil-packs

ST162 - Charlie the pie-eater: Carted away on the back of a flat-bed...
JZZ30 - Lexi: Now an organ donor.
AE102 - Charlene: Reborn
AE82 - Rosie: 70.8kw, definitely not carving corners. Decidedly cube-shaped

Yeh, thought about that later. Thatd be a more involved exercise in which case id recommend fitting a 3sge instead.
