    im beginning the processes of swapping a 350 into my 1998 tacoma. i also play to sas it soon as the motor swap is done.
    my question is can i use my toyota t case? i know the tacomas are drivers side and chevys are passanger i believe? i have a motor lined up and it comes with a 4 spd manual tranny. would this bolt up? any conversion kits?
    thanks

    WOW! More power to ya! (it's punny)


    I have no data to back this up and am completely taking a swag, but I imagine a 350 puts out enough torque to mess up a stock transfercase, especially when planning to SAS (and probably mob the hell out of it offroad)
