What previous projects have you undertaken?

This is not a small or easy task and you truck will most likely be laid up for 6 month to a year at best.

If you have to ask what you need in order to do it, you probably shouldn't be doing it.

I did an LS3 swap about a year ago, it was a piece of cake.

Swapped from my LS3 powered Corvette to the 1GR-FE in my Taco.

If your actually interested in a diesel swap, take a look here.

I'm not actually sure that an ls1 would even fit in the engine case. If you want more power I'd think about buying a supercharger .http://www.earnhardttoyotaparts.com/...j-crui406.html

Well I've swapped my race truck 22re. For a 2JZ... about two years ago... and loved it... the LS1would be a year project... seeing since my truck only has 45000 miles on it... I'm talking about if I buy just the block. What all do I need for it... I'm going to fab the cross members and mounts... I know old motors but I want to keep it fuel injected. And every where I've looked I've seen people do it... but most of there things show..... heres the motor and than all of a sudden it in the truck all nice neat and pretty... so just asking what should i do...

And I did think about putting a 4BT... mini cummings in it... but that a lot of weight... and if I want to do long travel... there no way it would work right
