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.

Celicas are welcome here too. To the extent that we share parts, we need to coordinate and cooperate for the common good. Your engine bay is shorter, as I recall the Supra has something like five extra inches between the firewall and the front wheels (you'll have to google search for the exact dimensions), but that does present some challenges. I remember a guy 20+ years ago doing a 7mgte swap by relocating the radiator with electric fans on the front and no a/c. So if that's possible, a JZ surely is too. We have a number of guys on here who've done JZ swaps on their mk2 Supras and I'm sure they'll answer any specific questions if they can.
