Upgrade to a Toyota Supra Turbo, 3 Liter engine!! !

Corollas are factory designed and engineered to go slow. That is why they are so reliable. High peformance equals high wear and tear. Why do you think stock car racers rebuild their engines after every race. With repect to your 2nd question, if you do a lot of highway driving, you will burn more oil. In any event...look for oil leaks if any.

If no oil leaks are you blowing blue smoke? Are you sure the car has only done 67K?????

Hmmmmm, if you're gonna get rid of it anyways, NOS all the way! If you might keep it as a project car, it might be worth it to turbo or super charge it. Depending on how long you want to keep it, there are a lot of moderatly cheap upgrades that'll get you a little performance out of it. Best ways to get power without forced induction are exhaust, headers, Cold Air Intake(referred to as CAI), hi-flow catalytic converter, and if you really want power, some Type R or NOS stickers! Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but those two stickers alone could give you around 50 HP :lol:

There is this stuff you can add to the oil to stop it smoking and burning oil. Go to the auto shop and ask them for some!

well, to answer your oil consumption, its due to your timing chain cover, its leaking oil from there. at the same time, replace your water pump and serpantine belt.

1ZZ-FE cannot be a super fast engine, unless you add Super charger on it. you can try swapping in a 2ZZ-GE, but thats really costly. you can try swapping a 20V 4AGE, but that also is costly....

the cheapest to make your car fast is by supercharging it......but that costs $3000 minimum.....

So far that I know of, no one has used the Matrix/ Gen 9 Corolla 1zz-fe TRD Supercharger on a Gen 8 Corolla or Gen 7 Celica GT.
It should fit the engine, but no one wants to lay out the dough for the supercharger before seing if it can be fit in. The hood at the least would have to be modded.
