    are you 4x4?

    If not, get rid of the stock sub frame and go center mount but with a less than 85" track width. You get more travel but you stay narrow, thus, 7200 class legal :D

    You are allowed a sealed Ecoboost engine according to the 7200 rules. It makes 365 hp and 420 lb-ft stock.

    and if I was doing that much work doing center mount and new engine I would want to push the engine back as well seems like a waste of fab time if I decide to switch to 1400 down the road... or not worth losing the experience in 7200

    I think your best bet is to contact LCE for info and prices.

    http://www.lceperformance.com/

    The $5000 price cap for a Toyota V-6 race motor is pretty unrealistic unless you do all the work yourself or have someone to do it for next to nothing. Maybe a buddy who is a Toyota master tech?

    Finally, you should probably spend money on fixing weak points on the truck rather than looking for more power. Going faster wont help you if your truck breaks and doesnt get across the finish line. Heidi Steele's Ranger had a close to stock V-6 and they still dominated. The truck was dialed and that is what won races.

    ...truck is in the shop for all that right now... this is something i will look at doing in a year or 2 but i want to find out what to work towards doing. i need to learn to drive the truck first but the truck is being beefed up right now as we speak. solid motor and tranny mounts and engine cage + gusseting. not to mention a rear end rated to 600+HP to give me a good buffer.

    Curious question, and possibly a Newb one when it comes to off-road racing, but is it normal to solid mount the engine and trans in that style of racing?

    yes the constant hits and jolting around tears the mounts up real quick.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    A done NA Buick V6 will kick the crap out of most all V6's you can put together....inexpensively. You could build 3 Buicks for the cost of 1 Honda. The wrecking yards are littered with 4.1 blocks.

    Increased compression, Cometic head gaskets, ported heads, welded and ported lower intake plenum, TCR custom intake manifold, custom adjustable cam gears, automatic transmission. He was shooting for 300 whp I believe, while staying N/A. Add some cams, headers, and a free flowing Y-pipe to the mix, I could easily see it being around 350 whp.

    With all the forged internals, can the redline be safely raised? Another way to make power.

    true but that would be high end power, nice and all but low end power is kinda what im looking for... an option tho. I might consider getting a 4.0L tearing it apart bore it out maybe stroke it to get 400 with intake exhaust headers and cam? possible?
