    Anyone ever traded out a stock 99 taco engine with any thing other then the V6 5v-zfe Replacement....and if you have... would you be so kind to, point me in the right direction. I have seen on the Yota forums that a Tundra Swap is possible. -:DThanks

    The two most popular swaps are the 1UZ (8-cylinder) and the 1JZ / 2JZ (inline 6).

    2jz thats what i would want to do.. you can still keep decent gas mileage and its not as heavy as a v8 and you can build it to whatever horse power you want.. twin turbos are a good thing:D
