      The correct choice is the all-trac motor swapped the right way around into the last good Celica.

      whats wrong with transverse engine? Genuinely curious as Im a wrenchlet aspiring to start wrenching

        Implies that it's probably FWD or FWD based/derived

        Nothing legitimately wrong just a purist, DA is like DA or DA where your opinions are worthless and automatically wrong if it's different from the OPs

        Harder to work on belt driven accessories or anything else on the front of the engine as they're now sandwiched between it and the frame rail. Terrible weight distribution because every single one has the engine 90+ percent in front of the front axle, lol you think subarus and audis are bad about that? Try every car with a transversely mounted engine ever and especially V6 ones. Manual transmission shifter feel will never be as good because you can't mount the shifter directly to the transmission, you have to use a cable or linkage. And most importantly, transverse engine means FWD (or dogshit AWD that never works as well as proper longitudinal systems.) No fricking thanks.

          Hondas are comically easy to work on while being FWD with the best shifter feel out of any car only rivalled by Miatas, and Subarus are longitudinal and also have excellent shifters.

          Turbo V6s are often longitudinal with ridiculous packaging, turbo replacements on most of them are engine out jobs. B5 S4, Z32TT are old cars that come to mind

            Same applies to transverse turbo V6s, 3000GTs are notoriously terrible to work on. The only olf turbo V6s I can think on that would be easy to work on are the GMs (firebirds, Sy/Ty). I suppose a turbo replacement on an A610 wouldn't be too difficult at least.

          Every car company has their rotboxes.

          1990s-2000s GMs and Fords (even 2010s like GMT900s rot out QUICK)
          MkV VWs
          W210 Mercedes
          E36/46 BMWs (even E90/92s are rotting out)

          Now try to find a rusty 2000s Toyota or Honda. They actually got them right by that time.

    These were my two favorite cars as a teen. :3
    Both the 4G63t and 3S-GTE still have parts availability, but I assume the GSX will have better parts availability. The All-Trac is probably more-reliable, but good luck getting transmission parts if you need 'em.
    I think the GSX looks better (and I had a GS in HS so I really like DSMs) but all-tracs are rare as shit and have that X factor.
    I now hate AWD (12th year of Subaru DDing) and would recommend a gloriously-dangerous SW20 in stead.

        >dogshit engines.
        I've grown a distaste for Subarus and AWD, but I don't get this meme. Their engines are great (and sound great). I even have the one engine that gets headgasket failures (EJ253) at 140k miles and I'm not worried at all. Slow as frick and gets worse gas mileage than a truck tho.

          flat 4s wear the worst of any layout. it's just physics. and also they're super weak

            >flat 4s wear the worst of any layout. it's just physics.
            Absolutely untrue, look at V6s. Flat-4s are some of the most-balanced engines. Subaru just cheaped-out on headgaskets for one engine 20 years ago (the one I have) and everyone assumed it was inherent to flats in general.

            >i'm talking about gravity wearing the cylinders into eggs
            It crossed my mind when I envisioned a free-body-diagram, but the proof is in the pudding and generally flat-4s are just as reliable as I-4s. I don't see any evidence of stock Subarus (excl the headgasket-eating EJ253 which, again, is what I have) getting engine failures at higher rates than other cars.

            Both, clearly.

            Initially Diamond-Star Motors was a 50-50 joint venture between Chrysler and Mitsubishi. However, in 1991 the Japanese company purchased its partner's interest, and thereafter the manufacture of Chrysler vehicles was on a contractual basis. Chrysler sold its equity stake to Mitsubishi in 1993, and Diamond-Star Motors was renamed Mitsubishi Motors Manufacturing America (MMMA) on July 1, 1995.[3] Despite the departure, the two companies have maintained various co-operative manufacturing agreements since and considered all vehicle produced until 1995[9] as Diamond Star Motors.
            No Mitsubishi Sirius engine, no DSM.

            Well according to your logic the 2G GSX isn't a DSM either. I've owned a non-turbo 2G DSM, there were DSM stickers under the hood.

            iirc only early 95 eclipses (build date sometime in 94) use the DSM sticker, anything later uses a mitsubishi sticker.

            How do you guys feel about the A60 Celicas? I know it's not the one everyone pictures when someone says "Celica" but I think it has its own charms. There's a GTS available a few states over with 190,000 miles going for ~$6,500 but I'm afraid it could shit the bed and rack up maintainace bills soon after I buy it just due to age and mileage.
            Think it's worth the risk? Would be my first actual car past the crumbling Civic I've been driving for 11 years since I was a teenager. I just want a fun car, bros.

            hardest part about owning them is finding a good example and finding body parts, it's got a 22re and a w58 so drivetrain-wise it's pretty solid.

            source: i own both a early 2g gsx and a a65

    I just realized I have not seen a 2g dsm on the road or even car meets in my flyover state in 5+ years. And I have been daily driving Z32s and E36s for that whole time.
