The original thread was on the Something Awful forums, I decided to transplant/clone it here.

These were my fantasies:

Two swaps. The first is a token 'LS1 in to anything swap', the second is more mad tyte JDM shyte.

LS1 swap first:

Into a 3rd Generation Celica:

I always liked the idea of building a 'Japanese' muscle car.

Second swap is something I'm thinking about doing in the future:

Morwan-

FYI, That first fantasy car project you posted is a reality for a friend of mine. In fact I just met up with him earlier this week to discuss his fuel line rigging. The engine fits and weighs less than his previous turbo 22R engine. I'm guessing it won't be running for another 6 months at least. It's not going to be an easy swap, but when it's finished he should be able to run 11's in the quarter mile without upgrading any parts on the engine and get over 30mpg on the highway.
