This is only my second post on the forums so, mods if this is not the correct location please move.
I am wondering about getting a V8 4Runner that has had an unfortunate life (from a junk yard) and installing the V8 and transmission in my 4x4 Taco. I know there would be some transfer case issues to work past, but i want to keep the 4x4. I know the Taco and 4Runner share frames, but would the V8 have a different forward sub-frame than the V6? And if so would these be swappable? I love the V6 for all the fun it has been but I still want a V8. My 4x4 DC LB Taco is as big (generally) as my cousin's Xcab SB Dodge. Also I am considering installing a turbo on the V8. My main reason for wanting a V8 is mainly shock factor. I like the idea of romping down on the gas, and watching that Silverado SS fade away in my rear-view mirror. Your thoughts and opinions are appreciated.
