actually im running a 2000 crew cab. i think if i had the 05 the 265 hp would be plenty, its atleast better than the 190 im getting now. but my buddys 4runner is a 94 (2nd gen) and the lexus engine i believe comes from a 90-99 LS400 or something? im not caught up on my lexus stuff lol. anyway that swap is about 300 hp stock, and he might beef it up a little bit, he will hit 350 at max. but i doubt that, so im kinda aiming for about 270-300.
and i would seriously think about paving the way for everyone and being the first one out there. but right now im working at a ski resort and i really need my truck! lol. so maybe this summer when i can ride the bike i can put my truck out of commsion. but my problem still lies in a engine. the titan engine would be sweet, but thats an expensive engine. where my buddys engine will cost him about 800 bucks, the titan engine would be a couple grand prob. and i dont think it would be that easy of a swap. older engines are tipically easier to swap. so i guess i still need to find a donor, that would fit decently easy on a 3" body lift. any ideas for engine?
