I'd go MSM, blacked out halo headlights, with RX projectors, AWD 5-speed from a truck or something, 2JZ-GTE BPU (to not blow tranny), TRD Altezza kit and UK grille.

My goals seem very attainable, no?

Although the thread got a little of topic, The original question has a solid answer now. I know oldschool16v had said he planned on doing a gte/161 swap, so i pm'ed him about it and another inquiry i had. And according to him he is finished.

He also said that he plans to document his build some time in the future, but hasn't so far because his English isnt good "Canadian i think". I hope im not stealing his thunder by letting everyone know, i just thought it would be good information for "our" thread.

More specifically to my interests, I'm considering a -gte/6speed swap, leaving it fairly stock usdm. My thought is if I get an engine/trans/harness and new, factory ecu from a 97-98 Supra, is it possible to burn my own vin and thereby pass emissions? Anyone do this before?

I'm sorry you suffer from cranial-rectal inversion.
