    so is there anyone out there that has done a v8 swap?

    I think it would be sweet to have a 2nd gen with a 4.7

    Someone did a Lexus V8 swap. Seemed like a lot of work for a marginal improvement.

    Have you drove the 4.7? My Mom's Sequioa has it and I love it. I wouldn't swap out my 4.0 though.

    I don't think it was a 4.7 engine. Maybe it was. The guy said he did it to smooth out the hills when he was towing.

    I think it would be sweet..

    The 2nd gen tacomas and the older tundra's are so similar, it seems that if you had a role over v8 tundra, and a water damage or something tacoma, it would be the only right thing to do lol..
