Welcome to the forum.  Honestly the stock engine is the only one I can think of with that bolt pattern.  You may want to check some of the other forums as this one is basically specializing in the rwd older shape vehicles.

You are encouraged to make yourself at home however, as most of us are just interested in our Toyota Celicas

Yea were mostly RWD, not that we'll exclude anyone but we won't likely know enough about your car to help much

1zz and 2zz only unless you run a different transmission. 3sgte has been done as well as many other motors. don't feel like too much of a minority. I have an st162 and its my second ff celica. fun to drive. forgot to mention if you have auto or 6spd. your best bet is to rebuild the 2zz with some good pistons and boost it with a supercharger or gt28rs turbo. lots of aftermarket available for the 7th gen.

definitly. Yamaha did a FREAKIN awesome job on the 2ZZ head, going to another motor seems like wasted money IMO. If you have a 2ZZ you can do a lot of nice things with it because of the nice valve train and awesome flow rates.

Hass Pro Turbo I think was doing something like 400hp with a turbo and supporting external mods, but nothing touched on the internals, kind of a thing to show how well the 2ZZGE was built.

indeed but the crank is what lacks in quality. 2zz is prone to spinning rod bearings and sometimes worse with hardly any mileage on them. remind me a lot of the 7mgte and head gasket issues. probably a permanent fix but im not sure.
not sure if its still a site but www.teamcelica.com may be of more information to you. mostly a 7th gen site ;)

heh same here. my 89 mk3 has gone through 2 headgaskets and finally took a crap on the interstate. pretty sure the rod cap came off #6 or something because it vibrates bad enough your leg cramps on the clutch pedal
