The engine swap remains to this day to be one of the most involved, yet rewarding, performance upgrades available to the motivated pistonhead. And while most heart replacements involve swapping a bigger motor into a smaller vehicle, the exceptions to that rule are usually much more interesting.

Case-in-point: the Supra-LeMans.

Ralf Becker procured a 1972 Pontiac LeMans in his home country of Germany, and instead of taking a more traditional path to power, he decided that the Mark III Supra's turbo'd 3-liter inline-six would be a better candidate.

It's still in a work in progress, which Becker plans on unveiling during the "Power Big Meet" in Sweden this July. You can read an email he sent to our friends over at Hemmings here and check out the gallery of his project at Chromjuwelen.com.
