I dont know about V8's in a taco but I do know that TRD built an FJ Cruiser with a 4.7L. I personally think your better off just sticking with your 4.0. The 4.7 doesn't have that much more power but it also has more weight as for the 4.6 (junk) and the 5.7 both engines are to long and to tall to fit in the tacos' engine bay. Here is the link to trdusa for the V8 FJ Cruiser

Yes I do if I had my choice of engine in a Tundra 4.6 or 4.7 I would take the 4.7 any day of the week, I've worked on to many 4.6 Tundras with bad cam gears, so in my personal thought the 4.6 sucks, but again thats my own thoughts and experiences

Oh, I did not know the 4.6 had problems. Those 4.7s may not be the most powerful but they have been around a long time and you can rely on them

may be it was the fact that it couldnt compete with the smaller engines that Dodge GM and ford offered. Like dodge took their 4.7 and changed the output to i think 305 hp and GM has the 4.8 300 and ford...not sure.

The 4.7 has been out since 98 i think when it went into the landcruiser

That's pretty cool but talk about having traction problems. At least it has an LSD now.

Tundra Racing's scope of business is aftermarket for the Tacoma/Tundra. Its what they do for a living.

And I would hardly call that half-ass. Doesn't need to be lowered. With $30k invested into the truck, I doubt that the extra $80 for dearching the rear leafs or drop blocks was deterring them from lowering it. Besides lowered vehicles are much harder to sell.

Maybe, but I think it would look better lowered. I dont mean draggin frame rails down the road, just a couple inches would look good
