    Would the Tacoma be able to fit the ls3 engine under the hood? Just for sh**s and giggles.

    There's a guy on here that has done it. A few more people over on TTORA have done Lexus V8 swaps. I can't think of any of their names though.

    Man I think it would be really slick to have a taco with almost 500 hp imagine it! Smoking any sports car in a truck!

    Definitely won't beat every sports car I doubt that no matter how much money you put into the motor alone you won't be able to beat a Ferrari 458 or a Bugatti Veryon. ;)
    Eh whatever mods will just post responses from the duplicate thread into here, delete/lock the other one, and go about their day.

    It's true. In the end you have a heavy brick.

    Come on guys get real! I have never seen a Bugatti Veryon or a Ferrari 458. I wouldn't even put a corvette up to them because they have over a thousand hp! Now I guess I should have stated my question as has any one done this on a second gen taco?

    I'm trying to find him but I know for a fact that there is a guy on TTORA that has a SAS'ed 1st gen with a supercharged Lexus V8 under the hood.

    Lexus V8 with SAS. I know it isn't exactly what you're looking for but TTORA is mainly off road oriented hence its name, Toyota Truck Off Road Association.

    These are just to show that it is possible with enough time and money. I'm willing to bet that someone on XRU or Custom Taco's has done a v8, probably an LS motor, in a X-Runner.

    Correct actually. There have been two owners of xrunners to both swap in the LS1 and transmission.

    Rexrunner, and I cannot remember the other one's name.
