    Decided I am going to go for an engine swap... But.. maybe you guys can have a bit of fun with this. Help me pick out what engine >:). What's the biggest, most badass engine we can fit in our trucks, without screwing with the cab/exterior? Hell to the no on staying N/A as well.

    Any block we can find for 10 grand or under lol? I would like to be able to get the swap done for 30-40 grand total... so there's my limit for now.

    No, he was banned from XRU a long time ago, and holds a grudge against the members/staff there, and tries to discredit the info and members for some unknown reason. :confused:

    If you are serious, take a flamethrower to your prerunner, and spend the 40 grand on a 1999 (forged pistons) viper GTS and put a 200 shot of nitrous on it.

    Putting a Chevy (GM) engine into a Toyota truck is now Illegal (at least for street use) why doesn't someone put a SC 5.7L out of a tundra into a tacoma that would be awesome.

    Damn 40 grand on a truck, jeez, what exactly do you do for a job at 18. Cause i'm broke at 20 so apparently school isn't the way to go.

    I hope this thread doesn't turn out like that other one with that younger guy that just BS'd a lot and got called out and couldn't take the pressure. :rolleyes:

    If so, I'm sad to say I'm apart of today's youth. :(



    But if the OP is serious, well thats just awesome then. :thumbsup:

    If you have the cash and seriously want to keep it Toyota. Screw putting a V8 in there. The ONLY way to go if you can get it to fit is 2JZ-GTE.

    seems pretty silly to drop that much money into just an engine...
    If I had that much extra money laying around to spend on a truck I would build a trophy truck:D

    Yep, parents gave me money to invest. I owe everything to them. I'm going to school right now full time, so my responsibilities are in check.

    Now, about that LSX? And if I got called out in my other thread and never came into it, it's because of school, and that I have been over at XRU. I have been over at XRU for quite a while now.

    As for a trophy truck... isnt this exactly what I am building? I have an obsession with building a beast "tacoma".

    And why is it illegal to swap out a GM engine in my toyota chassis/frame? I can't keep the same drivetrain/anything. Nothing would be able to handle it. It wont be a toyota truck anymore, just the outside.

    Not knocking the LSX idea but a twin turbo 2JZ really would be bad ass. If I had the money for a swap that'd be it. but either way good luck with it and post pics of the progress.
