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.
