    hey im currently looking into swaping a 4.7 v8 into my 98 toyota tacoma 4x4. i was wondering if anyone has done this swap or can tell me what i need to do this swap. i currently have the 3.4 liter v6 5uzfe which i wanna change to the 4.7 v8 2uzfe motor.
    some questions i have are:
    will the 2uzfe motor bolt up to my 5uvfe transmission or will i have to change that also?
    what parts are needed to do this swap?
    what needs to be changed for this motor to fit?

    any pics and or info will be appreciated
    thanks in advance
