    Everything looks good. But don't spend money twice on intake. Wait until you drop the v8 before getting the intake/exhaust. Otherwise you will be spending double the money. Bed cover, you might want to go with line-X, cost more but it will help in the long run.

    I have no clue. Im sure someone else will be able to chime on it. I think with the right amount of money you can do pretty much anything you want.

    A lexus 1UZ will fit.. but why? If you cant do it yourself, dont even bother. You'll end up spending more on the swap than the truck is worth.

    Are you a v6? Maybe do something different and go with a turbo setup vs. supercharger.

    you can get new headers and stuff to give that v6 a little more hp imo id rather do that than drop a v8..you'll kill your mpg with a v8 also if your goin cheap you'll probably end up with a carbuerated v8 which i had terrible luck with in my old truck..id run that v6 till she blows then drop a v8 if it was me

    I'm afraid that may not ever happen. Toyota engines are unfortunately completely unable to blow up.

    v8 swaps are very possible. Just depends on your pocket and your wrench skills. Id look at a 1uz or the new 4.6 tundra v8

    For you, get a TRD SC, then get all the supporting URD mods to unlock in completely. You'll be well over 300hp after its all said and done. Turbo will give you more in the long run but would take way more custom work.
