I am certain a Northstar will fit with minimal cutting and welding.

I'm thinkin' Troll. Besides, everyone knows THE swap for a Tercel is a 1UZFE.

I don't think he's a troll or Canoe pilot. He put a late night cell phone photo up in the readers rides section. If he is he's reached new levels of Canoe-ism.

The Tercel has a canoe on the side.

I don't know anything about Toyota engine swaps but surely you could turbo charge it.
