He's saying something, I'm not sure what it is. Too bad though I really wanted to help him with his "sreet racer", what ever that is.

since your car has the 3AC in it, you should be able to put a 4age in it... itle take a lot of work though... try taking the highcomp motor out of an 88-92 corolla GTS, it should bolt up... wiring and fuel lines would give you the most trouble

it really doenst matter what kind of car hewants to work on... sure, theres always a faster car... people work on slower calls all the time... either for entusiast reasons, are they just donw have the cash to buy an expesive fast car... and honestly, since i like older toyotas, i like the older tercels... maybe he does to... oh, and you can make anything go fast, if you really try...

ANY car can go fast, and it doesn't necessarily take a ton of money to do it, especially starting with something light. Just innovation and the ability to think outside the box (and the realization that you don't need to always buy brand new parts)

I like the 4AGE idea. You could get the 88-up GTS unit, or the one from the first gen MR2 (as it was just a Tercel/FWD Corolla drivetrain moved to the back, including the FWD hubs...). You could even use the later FX16 setup. Probably the best would be the '88 MR2 supercharged, but those might be hard to find. Finding a rusted out first gen MR2 should be no problem, and just yank the entire drivetrain and all the parts to make the engine run. I haven't actually done this swap, so I don't know what will be a direct bolt in and what needs fabrication, but I've seen much harder swaps done in people's back yards successfully, so...
