Default weird engine noises

Just bought a celica as a project car. Got it for cheap because the engine made a weird loud knocking sound. Any idea on what's wrong with it, and how I can fix it? The sound goes up with the rpm.

That could be a long list of things....cracked piston, spun bearing, bad cam belt tensioner or idler, broken valve spring. Either way, its a bad engine and you are taking it apart to find the problem or replacing it.
