Hello this is possible but is a good sized project you don't say what vehicle you're planning to convert but assuming that there's enough room in the engine bay to fit the 6 cylinder and engine and gearbox then the 1st consideration will be how to control the enginethe cheapest method is to try and transplant 'all' of the supra electrics over so it thinks its still in its original home however this will need a lot of extra hardware that you won't need, as the alarm, dash body control module, relay box all door switches etc etc all have to be present and accounted forwhat I'd suggest is going the aftermarket ECU route as this will happy just running the engine and also leaves lots of scope for tuning and modificationone of the best budget models of ECU is the Emerald unithttp://www.emeraldm3d.com/ ultimately your choice will be determined on what you want to do with the finished car and obviously the 1953 brakes, suspension and back axle will all need re-working / replacing to cope with a 400Bhp engine
