    Won't help that much considering an '86 Celica is a FWD ST162...

    ???

    He's got a 3S-powered FWD ST162, as well as two spare 1MZ-powered FWD ES300s. Take 1MZ from ES300 and put in ST162. To quote the meerkats, Simples.

    ES300s are THE reason why Lexus gets bagged out as just doing tarted-up Camrys, because that is basically what they are.

    It's been done. It'll take a lot of time and cost a lot unless you're a handy fabricator. For only ~150kw not really worth it, imo. You could drop in a 3SGTE or a warmed-over 3rd-gen GE and get more power with a lot less stuffing around. Have a read of this thread from ST162.net, the pictures are all gone (thanks Photobucket, assholes....), but the 9 pages of posts should give you an idea of whats involved.
