    Has anyone tried to stuff a 5.7L engine into a Taco yet? That would be one sweet ride with some awsome getty-up! IMHO

    The biggest I know of is a Lexus 430 V8. Stuffing the 5.7 in it would require MUCH more work. :)

    TACOZILLA has one in his 1st gen truck.... I think he used a s10 frame though....
    I have completed two V8 S10 swaps, pretty straight foward, super easy if you use an automatic trans. Straight drives take a little more effort... Which is what I have in my 2wd 92 Sonoma 406SBC with a 5speed tranny. I love it I did it myself in 2004.

    Anyone else think it can be done... reasonably?

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    well, the 4runners can come with the 4.7L but the 5.7 is probably quite a bit bigger dimensionally. I'd love to see someone do it, A taco would haul ass with a 5.7 though!:burnrubber:

    the biggest issue i can forsee with a 5.7 in a taco would be the inability to have rear tires. im sure i would go through tires like a mother!!! haha with my 2.7 im glad to go for a test drive in a 4.0 a 5.7 would be heaven!!!

    REASONABLY? Considering the motor is roughly 12 months old, getting your hands on one would not be easy; ie $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Then you would need to find someone willing to do the work to make it happen. Labor rates aren't cheap....you'd be better off buying a new Tundra at 0%.

    Give it a few more years and I am sure Toyota's concept team will make it happen.
