Smile Looking to update/swap the engine. 1988 GT

Hi all. So, Iím just going to get right to it...Iíve been searching for a while, now. But, I have yet to find a good answer. You see, I own a 1988 ragtop Celica. It has, sadly, been sitting in a field for about 20 years. Amazingly enough, the frame/shell/whatever seems solid, still. So, I want to restore/mod her. Iím going to find out if she runs, soon. Itíll be a miracle if that happens. She doe have over 200,000 miles on her. Anyway, my big question is ďWhat engines would be recommended as replacements? I really would love to have better mpg than the stock engine. Btw, sheís also a stick. Iíve seen people on forums mentioning motors by numbers and letters. Iím not really versed on that, yet. Basically, what cars can I salvage from without having to weld and whatnot.

Mahalo in advance.
