dude...in swaps you are only limited by the size of your engine bay, and the size of your wallet. You may as well import a JDM engine, maybe that of the supra, or anything else that suits your budget....

Do you think the Optra chassis will handle 600+ horses thrown out by the Supra engine? No ways. I sugest you drop the idea of the engine swap, since Optra's arent tuner friendly, buy a Jap car, a Honda City and swap a B16 or a Lancer and swap a Mivec. Optra's dont even have the handling to go along all that power you are expecting. I was planning to TC my Optra, but dropped the idea and if i want a road burner i would buy the Lancer and do the needful.

You can check this (230 BHP Optra Turbo) thread about a Optra with a turbo.

since yours is a fairly new model you could sell the car and pick up a city and put a 180+ bhp engine in there for around 6l guessing the optra would sell for that much.

what i meant was you could put a powerful engine in it...well, if he wanted it to handle better, he can change the suspension...the optra is a decent car, and if he needs more power he can plop in a jap engine in it, it'll work just as well if a MiVEC or B16b can fit...the Optra is korean after all
