Engine swap possibilities

Hello everyone,

I have a manual '92 Holden Apollo SL JL that is the same as an SV21 Camry. I'm thinking of starting an engine swap project for it. I was just wondering what would be good swaps for it? Would a 3S-GE bolt in? I understand I'll have to get an ECU and do some wiring, but are there any issues with compatibility with the trans and what have you? What alternatives are there?
Cheers!

Given that it is already a 3S bottom end, it should bolt up with minimal fuss to everything mounting wise. Depending on what vehicle it is sourced from, you may need to drill and tap the unused blanks for the engine mounts.

You will probably have more differences when it comes to the head, but it can definitely be done and has been done.

People have also fitted the 3S-GTE engine to these models. This all depends on your budget.

one's I've found most similar (in Aus) so far are ones from an SW20 MR2 and also an ST202 Celica, The Celica has vvti and is much newer, however, but it looks like it's the exact same config as the 3SFE in mine, would there be any potential issues there?
