Default 97 SXV20 Going Sports

Hi all! I have a standard 97 SXV20 with a 5S-FE engine.

I want to put a more powerful engine, custom sports the car. Put a v6/straight 6 probably with turbo, with a sports auto transmission, manual would do also. Also i want to convert it either to RWD or AWD.

I know this will require a lot of time and money, time i do have, money, i am working on that haha

I need from you guys are ideas, recommendations, information. I don't really know what is out there and whats possible with my camry. I am looking at a 2JZ-GTE. I want something that would get Sports car owners attention. I don't want to get a sports car, or a newer camry, i love the one i have. If anyone has experience doing something like this, please do comment.

Thank you
