The previous mentioned mods plus lose some weight, advance the timing a bit, get an afc and wideband to run a better afr then get some cams and it will roar. Then you'll have to figure out how to lose your afm...

ummm there is not much out there for the NA. Intake, exhaust...ect. but i think the best is to just go TURBO! I have come to peace that my NA is slow and i dont really care that much, but if you want a fast Supra a swap is the best way to get the HP you want. Remember Price, Performance, Reliablilty.

just add a turbo or if you have a budget put a new air filter. that will increase full economy and horse power. but if you dont want to do all that add a bully dog system. the other thing their is , is a micro chip you put in the engine to go faster. it will increase over 100 horse power.

The 7m is a moody motor, and wont respond well to just slapping a turbo on(trust me I know ;)) you're best bet, it you want to maintain reliability is to go with a set of high throw cams,some ITB's and a decent exhaust system. Pair that up with a program such as datalogit, or even megasquirt and you'll be making somewhere in the 220 bhp range. Personally, if you want a reliable source of power a 302 or 1j swap would probably treat you better.
