Hey everyone, I have a 3rd gen Tacoma that I intend on turning into a prerunner within the next few years. It is completely stock as of right now. I am interested in a v8 swap, particularly the LS. If money is not an object, how difficult would this be? Would it be possible, and if so, worth the outcome? Thanks! Best regards

It would be helpful to understand what you may be trying to accomplish.

What is it that motivates you to swap in a V8? What will you do with it? How do you expect to use it?

The point is that whatever answers you may get may vary depending on the intended purpose(s).

I am really just looking for loads more power. The v6 honestly isn't cutting it and doesn't fit my needs. As I said, I'm turning it into a prerunner for a Baja race event that I attend in California with my cousins and friends every year. I also just love the sound and feel of a v8 and I need a new project car or at least something that sits in my garage and annoys my family and friends lol. This is really just a project for me and I wanted to go out on a limb to create something that very few other people have done and make it somewhat of an art piece and my pride and joy. I sold my project car a little while back and I have just been itching for something to tinker on. I apologize, I should have probably put that in the actual post lol it was late at night and I was about to go to bed.

If you are racing, Check the requirements of the class you are trying to get into. Running a supercharger on the 4.0 may keep you in a more stock type class, keeping your budget out of the clouds. Full unlimited you are stepping into a whole new ball park
