    i have a 2.7L Prerunner,
    can i put a 4.7 tundra engine in it?
    im a noob in this. What would be the power difference?
    would it be the same if i put a supercharger in? i would think taht it would be more..

    i want to do it as a fun, unique thing. also im tired of my weak 2.7L. its good if its just me in the car sometimes, but coming back and forth from school with luggage and friends the truck reaaallly struggles keeping up and accelerating, and it burns gas.

    can anyone give me advice on a swap?
    and i have searched but didnt come up with anything.. :/
