V-8 Tacoma ???

I was just wondering if anybody has stuffed a Tundra V-8 into a second gen Tacoma. Sounds like an interesting project. That would be a real TRD truck.

People say I have a head full of bad ideas

It's probably been done, but a supercharger is a lot easier with similar results, especially when you figure the weight difference. Those sure look like real TRD trucks to me.

$$$$$$$$$

maybe the 1st gen 4.7. but good luck even trying the new 5.7. and MPG would not really change or anything. also would have to do A LOT of wiring. Not worth it IMHO(or probably to most people)

Lexus gx470 is built on the 4runner platform and uses a 4.7L finding one of those for a donor vehicle would yield the best result but it would be a overwhelming amount of work, my last build was a 5.0 in a ranger and before that was a 5.8 in a jeep YJ, after sizing up my taco I will be going the SC route

Toyota did this with a concept xrunner, they called it the Tacoma RTR. youtube it. fits like oem. Not interested in the auto, or cost of swap though.

eh.. that 4.7 is really not a great improvement over the 4.0l, and the 1GR is a stronger/better engine IMO. neither are anywhere close to the 2JZ + its wide aftermarket tunability...
