that car has a whole world of options for it

yes u can fit a supra engine it in but the easiest swap would be a early 22r block with a 20r head, and they are really light

You can only fit a supra engine in the pre-75's if you cut the firewall. I believe you have an 18rc engine in there, so better upgrades might be an 18rg, or as 91stxman said, a 20/22r hybrid would be nice in there.
Upshot the the hybrid is easy parts because they litter the place.

18rg or rc is a carbed 2.0 4cyl.
Older Toyota engine.
Precourser to the 3TGTE which won Toyota alot of races in the late 70s early 80s.

The 22R is a 2.4 carbed 4 cyl.
Came in US version Celicas and trucks, til the 22RE came along [fuel injected version].
The 20R was the 2.2 precourser of the 22R. It only came carbed.
When you combine the 22R block and the 20R head, it basically creates a higher compression 22R.
I believe you want to use a 80-84 22R block, as the 85 ^ were different.
I could be wrong on that.

Needs some VTEC just kicked in YO.

No, seriously... i've seen them with Honda swaps, even Nissan SR20DETs. Hiko is absolutely right that fitting in the Supra Inline 6s becomes a problem before 75. You can see why if you manage to see the two different ones next to each other. Even the hood is shorter on the older ones.

Which sucks... because the rear of the 74 looks better than the rear of the 77, imo.

I've done a little research on the subject, and is the next project that i'll be trying to undertake.

I say, if you really want to go all out on this thing, then get a 76 or 77, and do something like this:

Otherwise, do the older one and make a 22rte. :) Will still be plenty of grunt.

QFT.

An LS1 will be the best bang for your buck. It's cheap, light, and most importantly, has a huge aftermarket.
