hi, i hate motor swaps but i think i can do one more. i have a 93 pickup 4x4 5spd, the 4cycl motor. whats the easy motor i can fit in that is v6 or v8. i would like to get alot of power out of displacement rather than turbo..bolt-ons..etc. any suggestions. is there a website where they sell motors for our trucks. i know theres the jdm stuff for all the hondas. what websites are they for upgrade and performance parts for our trucks. i seem to only the 96 and up stuff. thanx

Yeah I think the 2.7 would be pointless to swap, a lot of work for not much gain. There are a lot of people that swap in a 3.4L 6 cyl from newer yota trucks. I also have a 22re that when it is toast I am going to try a 7M-GTE (7M-GE i think is the non turbo version) swap from a 2nd gen supra (the newer style is 3rd gen right). I have done a little bit of research and found that bell housings and transmission input shaft length are the biggest problems. www.supracharged.com i think is the site that has info on it. A 2JZ swap is doable, but has more issues than the 7M swap.

Go 2jz baby...

While you are at it, get some Mashimoto zx tires on that bad boy...

Seriously, An engine swap is never, ever "Easy" there are a hundred things you have to account for and you will miss at least 10% making your life a living hell for about a month afterwards while you chase them down.

If you want a truck with more power, then sell your toy and buy a truck with more power.
