Pretty sure the trans will not fit up to it or hold up to the power and torque of the 5.7.

As for the engine bay... The 5.7 is a beast and you may need to relocate the radiator and go with an electric fan, beef up the frame/motor mounts. Oh, and then there is all the electrical work you'd have to do.

Why would a V8 Taco be nice? The current 4.0 puts out plenty of power.

A v8 taco is a tundra. Have you seen the size of the tacomas now? As big as te tundra was in 2001... It's no longer a mini truck platform by any means.

Not to mention the tundra is a better platform for almost all things truck worthy.

It has more power, better mpg, better towing, nicer looks, better interior and has almost as large of an aftermarket following.

I would trade mine for a tundra in a heartbeat.

I got it from adres the devil horn group buy guy.

It's off the truck now and is for sale.

I put a 8inch hid in its place.

An yea the early 2000s tundras are beast!

I almost bought one in 2001 when I sold toyotas.

It was going to be almost $35k when I was done with te add ons!!! Hahaha
