Toyotas cannot be swapped, just custom work will change to different engine. No supercharger is made for this and turbo, well is not going to do much but give HP which does not make car faster, just lowers RPM's and ability to keep car at rate of speed. Torque makes a vehicle fast. also you will get with turbo that lag with the torque band it has. Easiest way to add power and cheapest is: cold air intake, 20-25 gain, synthetic fluids 20 gain, free flow exhaust 10 gain, Mallory ignition 5-10 torque.60-90 HP and torque gain for around 1000.00 using Borla aftermarket parts. turbo is 3-7000 and gets way less as does supercharger as uses belts like a.c and slows you unless car is bullt to use it. synthetic fluids in all places will cut friction and add engine life. Also cold air induction is not same as air intake. Boral makes best and only complaint is when in stop and go it will make car jump. Also gas in city goes down but on highway will rival Prius.
