i used an 89 supra non turbo W58, steel center. and as for the website listed above, he will take care of you. My car was one of the test cars for that setup and the owner of the company is a friend i see weekly. he has everything on the shelf ready to ship. When you get a trans, get the front driveshaft off the supra aswell, you will need the yoke and about 6"s of the shaft, then have your starquest driveline mated to it via busing. i think it was 34" overall but its all about where you set your engine, i had mine a bit forward to keep the firewall in tact.

Try and pick up an R154, that way you can build power and not worry about it.  More expensive and bigger but you won't break it.  I don't know how much power you will end up with but if it's over 400 try and get the R154, guys are breaking the 58's.

I don't know what they make, if you are under 400 the W58 is cheap and should hold up.

The Lexus motor is such a nice choice. So smooth.

The other day I was looking at a 4.4L BMW V8 in a wrecked X5 with saliva dripping off my mouth.... Pushrod motor with a really low height. EDIT: Not pushrod, LOL
