<font color='#000000'>I have a 1982 Celica XT with a 21R-C engine which is pretty gutless so i want to change it. the new engine can't be a turbo because im under 25 and insurance is too high. So i was thinking of putting a 5MGE from the celica supra in it.
I have been quoted $995 for the engine and approx $300 for installation. Is is worth it? or is there a better non turbo that will fit fairly easily?</font>

<font color='#000000'>isn't the 5m six cylinder?  in my opinion any six-cylinder engine that pumps out less than 190hp isn't worth it.

less than $1000 is a nice price though, but gas must suck.</font>

<font color='#000F22'>were you planning to call the insurance company and telling them you swapped the engine with a turbo supra engine????
if not then why would you worry about the insurance
if so then why the hell you do that?</font>
