ok i have a 3.0L in my runnerthing.

i'm tryin to plan ahead to reduce the down time.

the 3.4 L is a sexy swap[1c] because it bolts in and then it's some wiring but i cant seem to even locate a place where i can get one...

chev 4.3? need a tranny too and another adapter.... which might not bolt to my clocked one so it's trickier.........

do they make to degree clocked adapter's for chevtrnny to toy case.. or do you have to keep the toy tranny and just get the chev motor....

or the ford 302...[32] more power then i really need... but it would be fun.... break more shit...

what would you guy's do....

I have the 4.3 swap done, I love it. But having said that, I thinks if I do another truck up , I'm gonna do the 302 swap, with a standard tranny.

how is your t case clocked? if its a mariln clocked dual t case set up than you can adapt to a gm of ford trany infront of it.

it's got 10 degree's.... at hte v6 plate... so both cases are clocked... not like the usual rear one.

trev why not just keep the 3 till its up an running ....wheel it for awhile then see if u need more power. if your doing trails & rocks it probley would be fine, but mud would maybe be differant ...
Just thinking this as theres usually alot of bugs to work out after a project an u dont want to much on the plate or yah might loose patients with it ...U always see big projects 70-80% done for sale.

it's a good way to look at it liz...

but the 3 is startign to knock... so i can see it coming in teh not so distant future..

i just dont want ot roll it out beat it for a month then have to do a swap with no prep time..

i owuld rather do it at my convienance then the trucks.

4,3 has adapters to run the toy tranny & tcase, but you don't wanna run that chevy shit[f]

parts easy to find for 4.3 and there a good engine...

i wouldnt ever put a ford 302 in a toyota, or in anything for that matter. IF your gona do that might as well do a 350 for the cheepness and the amount that people do them its easy...

would be cool to stick with the toyota engine tho...

so its really up to you... but id stay away from the 302

trevyota
08-13-2006, 06:52 PM
i'd take a 302 over a 350 because it would fit better... but i dont really need the V8 i dont think..

i'm just having a hard time trying to find a donor for the 3.4.. or just a engine for sale period.

stuckle

why not a 305 then?

still used the same tranny as the 350 and there really common parts...

and still a good engine.

if you can find a toy id go with that. Takre the time see if you can find one and if you cant and the 3.slow packs it in then make ur desesion then[cheers]

and just to let you know... the size difference between the 302 and a 350 isnt much... you probably wouldnt even notice if you did the swap

pick n pull in westbank has two cressidas sittin in their yard. I think one is a 7M and one is a 5M there, either or are rad engines. check out when the next 1/2 off engine sale is there and you can pick it up for a good price

If I was doin a V8 swap into a Toy I would use the 302 Ford (prefferably the 5.0 Mustang fuely) because they are a fair bit narrower than a small block Chev and with the distributor in the frt they will have less of a fire wall clearance issue. There is nothing wrong with the ford small blocks if you stay mild it's when you start pumpin power out of em that you have bottom end issues.
