Hi guys

salam

i tried posting new thread last night seems like it was not approved or i cant find it, this is the first time i am posting a thread on this website

i have recently bought toyota mark 2 1973 in original condition, i am thinking of upgrading/ modifying the car in to a muscle car.

The most important part will be the engine ( non turbo 1zj or 2zj ??? Which is non turbo) ?
Lowering the car, hollow rims with wide tires
upgrading braking system
upgrading differential
etc etc

after mechanical issues i will jump to body, do you guys think it is good idea to change the shape looking like a dodge ? Or the original mark 2 shape should be kept ?

Any ideas ? Regarding engine upgrades ?

Let me know
thanks
