    V8 chevy small block would be nice. I think you can easily put 500hp on a stock motor... It would either be the v8 small block or inline 6 out of the supra.:D Although, I don't think the 2jz motor is too long.

    ^X2 1UZ would be sweet. But I think it's too big. After that I'll keep the 5VZ.

    I was also going to swap in the 1UZ, but I am glad I chose the LS1 instead after doing lots of research on aftermarket parts and support for that motor, Fkin expensive!!!!

    I can 500 hp for a fraction of the price of the 1UZ. Not to mention I have a 6 speed manual transmission!!

    1UZ would come with the 4spd auto unless you had adapters made etc...clusterfuk.
