engine swap
If the money was right, and you had a skilled person working on your car. Is it possiable to swap out the motor with a Supra motor. I know you would have to get a custom drive shaft made and cut the fire wall back a lot of $$$$ but the question is would that even be possiable even after that????

It would require ALOT of money and a lot of custom work. Two problems that I can see right off the bat is the small engine bay which needs to be enlarged and the chassis needs to be strengthened for RWD & big HP, TQ.

Forget the supra motor, throw the 3S-GTE motor in there. It's the 4 cylinder turbo motor Toyota use to use in their JGTC cars...
