Engine Conversion Kits?

Is there a source for engine conversion kits to replace a 1995 22RE with a Chevy V6 or other V6???????
Possibly interested in a turn key kit. e.g. All necessary parts for the conversion except for the engine.
If I decide to do a conversion I want one that is a relatively easy install and is reliable.

What is a good source for replacement 22RE engines that have a bit more power?

LC Engineering offers warmed up engines. Anyone have experience with the LC engines?

Thanks,
Roy

LC makes a great product but the power gain is questionably worth the money when you could have a v8 or a 4.3 v6 check out advance adapters for kits probably as close to turnkey as youll get. if i were to do it id like to have a newer style 5.3 chevy in mine just cause they are way more efficient and powerful than a stock 350. just me though but probably harder to pull off. someone on yotatech did do it though. another option is to replace it with a 3.4 potentially super charged from a newer style tacoma or 4runner i think 98 is the year to get? ds could give you more info on that. or a 5m 6m or 7mgte supra motors are a "popular" swap or a 2jz form a supra. endless possibilities with it really. just check out yotatech and other sites and youll get your fill. hopefully you actually post here again and do a swap...most people feel the lack of power decide they want a v8 but never really get around to it... id love to see an engine swap build thread from ya. another route to get a little more get up and go is to regear your differentials. you will have no more power but you will have lower gears and the motor will feel snappier due to you running in a higher rpm. bit cheaper of a route....food for thought hope i helped a little

3.4l 5vz-e from a '98 or '99 T100, I believe. In those years, the supercharger was available as an option, the oil pan would clear the diff when you have a 2" body lift, and they were produced with right-hand front drive transfer cases.

There is a s***ton of info including anything you need to know about the swap on the former company Off Road Solution's website. They were f***in' awesome and kept it up and running for anyone needing the info.

Advance Adapters is the source for engine swap stuff. They have kits for the Chevy 4.3 and Buick 231 V6's and others.

Does anyone on here even have a LC Engineering Engine? I would be interested if someone does. Personally I am really partial to the 22re and would like squeeze as much power as possible out of it. I would like to not go the swap route if possible.

id love to get a built lc motor but its cause i love the 22re. in reality its not imo the best or cheapest or most efficient way to go. its just plain old cool to have a built 4 banger when the heart of the engine is original

Looks like conversion kits and a repower cost way more than the truck is worth. Guess I'll just continue to suffer from a severe lack of power.

Thanks for the replies.

I've seen some impressive swaps with a Tacoma 2rz/3rz conversion (Taco 4 cylinder motor)...roughly the same power as the 3.slows, but much less weight. If you can find the right totaled/rollover taco for parts, it's not a horrible swap (easy for me to say that, though).

There was a video on Youtube showing a 2rz in a 1st gen pu, and that sucker cooked! It fishtailed due to the increased power, and looked awesome.

only thing that justifies my swapping to a 4cylinder is how much power you can produce after wards, on 4 cylinders. and then most 4 cylinders will sound the same.... and then torque delivery.

on a sidenote, 2RZ/3RZ's are respectable and CAN make power.
5VZ seems popular here, and then lexus v8's


someone needs to do the 3UR from the recent Tundra's, and then the TRD supercharger = 500hp

lexus v8 for the win!

You can't really bring "costs" into swaps like these. You will have already spent more then the truck is worth when buying a bell housing. You spend what you spend. Think of it as an investment in yourself

and the end product will ALWAYS be AWESOME. I mean seriously, our lightweight truck (even the 4WD trucks are pretty damn light compared to most 4WD trucks!) plus some new torque and horsies equals a shitload of fun and much better efficiency!

after you own your truck for a few years and really get to love it you will no longer see your trucks "worth" atleast money wise. my truck means a lot to me and i plan to fully build it when i am dpne col;ege and making money and i know many others have a similar plan.

Once you have passed its value with the amount you have sunk into it, there is no point to ever selling. Just keep it, if you can't drive it, park it.

I see waaaay too many +$80,000 rigs not even selling for $20,000 on Craigslist. It's just depressing
