    YEa, not worth yelling about. Not something you'd want to do. Its a car engine, maybe in an xrunner... but it was cool in its day, not a great engine or anything though. Time would be better spent and arguably with a better result if you just turboed your 1gr.

    Who wants a 25 year old car engine in their truck? If you were going to swap something, it better be an LS2.

    with proper wiring, engine mounts, matching transmission, endless time, and a money tree yeah it could happen.

    Do you even know what a GN is? Not a great engine? I wouldn't call something that can easily get into the 10's in full street trim with a/c not a great engine.

    Really? My bone stock internal GN 3800 with just more fuel and more turbo ran flat 12's all day and never missed a beat (with 160k miles).
