what engines can replace my 22re in my 85Celica Gts that will fit and can be handled by my current drivetrain.

would a V6 supra fit or an inline 6 from Cressida?

can anyone help me clarify...
mk1 is 86 -88 mk11 89-93 mkIII 93 - newer

the engine in the cressida and the supra are one and the same... they are both inline 6's.

and i don't know where you got that generation information, but it's all wrong

mkI is 79-81 (i think)
mkII is 82-86
mkIII is 86.5-92
mkIV is 93 and up

oh, and the 22re is a rock solid engine, have you looked at performance upgrades for it first?

Any engine if you are willing to do the work will fit in any car. IMHO the best engine swap for a celica would be a small block V8. If you want the I6 I would just trade up to a Supra.

slip, I think he's talking about cressida generations. In which case he's still off. I think its something like...

mk1 -84 ( think they started around 81, 80 here. I belive there were earlier generations elsewhere)
mk2 85 to 88
mk3 89 to 92 or 91? The first GS300 sold here is a mk4 cressi, the mk5 started around 99 (give or take a year)

They were all inline 6s. The V6 is the classic non car guy supra/cressida owner mistake. 30 percent of the supra buysell adds I see here say v6, about 75 percent for the cressida ones :lol:

Prior to 78 they were called MARK II Crown/Corona "not mkII-MARK II"

Very tough in the parts bus. Most guys call them coronas or crowns,interchange computer does not know about those designation.Must ask for MARK II or you get :wink:

Actually the Lexus GS series is based on the JDM Crown, not Cressida. The first GS300 had the chassis code JZS14x.

S chassis = Crown.
X chassis = Cressida.

The "Mark II" badge lives on in Japan with the current X chassis cars, but they've long since dropped the "Corona" part.
