    I have a 2003 tacoma 2.7 auto. It has about 170,000 on it and i was just offered a 2003 v6 manuel supercharged engine for $500 from a friend that wants it gone. I just need to if it's worth trying to make the swap i really would like the extra power and wish i had a v6 now anyway. Just need some input on how much it will cost and if it is even possible. Thanks

    You'll need harness, motor mounts, ecu, transmission, and the patience of a monk.

    I'm pretty sure they use the same transmission. Not sure about the rest though.

    EDIT: You've got a 5 lug. Sorry, I don't know shit about those trucks :eek:

    allright thanks, as far as i can tell the only difference between 5 lug and pre runner is suspension.
