    I voted SR20 since you have one already. And I'm sure down the line you'd opt for something powerful like that anyway.

    If it was my car I would go 2T-GE with a 3T crank and pistons.

    You choices are:
    1. work the 3T-C, use info from USA. Maybe nitrous.

    2. Use the little lightweight 4A-GE. Make it handle with a AE86 inspired setup.

    3. Use a 2T-G head. JDM TE71 Levin style. Rare in Australia.

    4. Toyota motor. 3T-GTE and 1G-GTE have been done. Look on Toymods. Was a popular setup 5 years ago.

    5. Nissan. I have seen a Rover V8 in one.

    My mates T18 (T16) has a 2TGEU in it, I have mentioned to him many of times to put a 3T block back in it with the 2TGEU head setup on it.

    the problem with the 2t head on block is that you have to fly vcut the pistons??? seems lke a lot of fucking around, i didn't really want to have to pull the whole motor down to do this

    you havent mentioned what your goals for the car are? or how much money you have to spend/are willing to spend.

    4age is probably the easiest and possibly the cheapest. plus depending on who you do it, you can end up with rack and pinion steering fairly easily too. a 4age corolla is a great car to start learning to drift in, which im guessing is what youre in to.

    hybrid motors are cool. but the 3tg seems kinda difficult. single cam 3t's are also a fairly well developed engine in the after market. so i dont know theres much of a point bothering with the 3tg unless thats just what you really want. seems like a hard choice to properly justify.

    7ag.. well you would start with a 4ag first.

    sr.. if you were really considering that choice.. you wouldnt have posted, youd just do it, as this is the type of attitude most people have, who do such conversions.

    i would consider just a small upgrade cam for your 3t. and maybe a single dgav or even holley 2 barrel carb'. and some headers. maybe a freshen up. im buying a t18 next week and thats what i plan. something to be said for SOHC 4 cylinder engines. simple engines, not many parts.
