Toyota 3a (or 3ac/3au) engine mods

I have a toyota corolla ke70 1985 2door wag. It has had an engine transplant out of a 1985-1988 ae85. So has a 1452cc 3a engine in it now. Sorry i dont know why i put 3ac/3au in the title.

I am wanting to get some advice on what modifications i could do to it without spending thousands.

I am wanting a decent carberuter maybe a dellorto or weber one? what size would fit?

Please if you have any ideas which would increase horsepower/Kilowatt at Rear wheels, the more information the better, links to websites where i could purchase parts etc.

Am just wanting to get abit more HP out of the engine.

or maybe if anybody knows or has installed a turbo into their 3a? even if its just a BB turbo or something running low PSI.

just change the engine for a 4A-GE, a much better choice
