New Here - Are Celicas okay too?

Hey, I'm Gino. I'm from Vegas.
Recently came upon a manual transmission 84 Celica. Not a supra because I honestly like the lights being a little closer to the grill like an 86, but I have an immense amount of love for this car already. It's in good health, but I'm very much so a novice. My goal is to figure out how to do a 2JZ Swap on it, but I have no idea where to start. Looking to learn everything I can about this car. Want to be able to take it apart and put it back together if need be.

Apologies if I'm in the wrong spot, can't actually post anything on the celica only forum, and this place seems a lot less likely to tell me a 2JZ swap is impossible so that I'll stop posting.

You might consider an internal upgrade to the 22RE, which is an awesome engine. A classic. They don't weigh much and there are probably write-ups on this. Then, mods on exxhaust, intake, ect. and you've got some real horsepower.
22re can barely push a truck. Not much power but bullet proof. Ample power for the Celica, however.
