    A Chevy 4.3 Vortech motor is a popular swap in those trucks. You would need to get the wireing and ECU from the doner vehicle. OR, you could swap in a 2.7 engine and drive train from a 1998 to 2000 Tacoma, and THEN supercharge it. :D

    Do you have it insured, could always have a fire, thats what I want to do to my 90 model as it is slow and makes very poor fuel mileage.

    May I suggest a swap to the 2.4L 2RZ.

    You all might think it's a joke but... I have seen the swap and the person running it say's a considerable bit more power out of that that the 3.slow

    That is a viable choice, but given that he is 4x4, I would guess he would want the same or better torque curve of the 3.0.

    Did you see what he was running for tires? That thing gas been SAS'ed dual transfer cased and is running 37's. He did get a screamin deal for it though, $600 for engine, transmission and complete wiring harness.
