First of all the mkiii supras can easily make 400 hp though it might take more than intake and exhaust. If you did want to put the twin turbo in a mkiii it will fit, but as far as I know an engine swap is a pretty big deal, especially when you already have an excellent motor in there to begin with.

The 2JZ-GTE will fit in the MKIII engine bay, but if you keep the stock twin turbo's you have to bang back the fire wall a bit. But if you put on a bigger single turbo it will fit nicely. You can get a jdm 2jz for about 2k depending on condition (that's without a transmission) but it will fit with the MKIIIs stock R154. You can have a slightly modded 2jz in your car, if you do the work yourself, for about $8000.

"The value of this vehicle is in the eye of the beholder. I could see paying $10K or more for one with low miles, garage stored and near perfect condition. In fact, I may just do that if I can find the right vehicle."
Very interesting that you say this. I just bought a 1991 Supra Turbo - White with white appearance package, blue cloth interior. 5spd manual. 68K original miles. The car looks like it is brand new. Not a scratch on it. Interior looks brand new, like showroom floor brand new. For $10K, people buy all sorts of lousy cars. I bought the sweetest Supra Turbo I could find from the original owner, and flew across the country to pick it up. It was garaged all its life and maintained meticulously; even when not driven much, he was still changing the fluids. MKIII Supras are awesome machines! Fix the head gasket (correctly) and they are bulletproof. If you can find a well maintained gem with low miles, it is nearly impossible to get a cooler car for under $10K.
