The Starquest/Conion (Annyong?) never hurt for power, even when held up against one of its angular, force-fed, rear-drive contemporaries. Some, like this one, even had the Sports Handling Package's adjustable suspension and wider wheels. For the speed-hungry, a V8 swap is a safe bet, but it's hard to beat the packaging and potential of one of Toyota's greatest engines. Horsepower leaps from 176 to at least 400 with an upgraded turbo, fuel system, and engine management system. A Turbo 400 automatic transmission is not the track rat's choice, although that depends on what track. We're promised this Staryota will chirp the tires into second gear and should lay enough rubber to keep the Michelin Man in business.
PhiLOL actually likes the tuna here, but abhors structural rust. Save the manuals.
