The Toyota Celica was available with quite a few engine variations over the many years of its production. So whether you are looking to replace your old engine with a reconditioned engine or a second hand engine, we will try to help you out along the way.

Reconditioned engines start life with your vehicle with all wearable components replaced with new and machine work done to the blocks to ensure you get the longest life possible out of them after your purchase.  used engines
