a 3s-gte which is a 2.1 turbo is the easiest engine swap. this engine had 200 horsepower in the 5th generation. It was increased to 245 horsepower for the 6th generation celica. I have heard of a supra twin turbo being crammed under the hood a 5th generation celica, which can have upwards of 300 hp, but then you might as well just buy a supra as the cost of the swap would exceed the value of the car.

edit: the 3sgte is a 2.0 turbo charged engine and it would be better to swap a 5sfe turbo
