Well the list is almost endless- Money is always the prime target though when doing a Swap.

The List:

1986-1989- Celica GT/GTS will swap right over.

The 3SGTE will need about 1 hour of rewiring to get it running.

1991-1996 MR2 GT/GTS will swap over Wiring will be needed though.

The 3SGTE is a littl more complex the wiring will need about 3-5 hours to configure.

Overall if you stay in the 86-89 model youll go from 114 HP(GT) >135 HP (GTS )> 190 HP (3SGTE).

Overall if you stay in the 91-96 (MR2) model youll go from 135 HP (GT) > 165 HP (GTS) > 245 HP (3SGTE)- Depending on which model year MR2 you choose.

Your 1988 celica if it already being a GT will benefit from the GTS swap, But as I said Money is Key!!!
