    Odd swap question

    I figured of all ppl you might be the one to ask... My friend has a 91 (pretty sure this is the right year) Toyota truck, 4wd, 4cyl efi, with a manual transmission. He knows someone that has a spare 7MGTE (pretty sure this is what engine it is, MK3 turbo supra motor). Anyways, is it possible to swap in, and if so how hard is it and what is needed?

    Why not a 1uz-fe? Little more torque, and they are uber cheap and plentiful..........lol. Sounds like a good swap idea, my sister had a cressida and always wanted to buy that swap in turbo motor for some mad drifzorz ugly style.

    Hallorann: No, I ain't.
    Danny: Mr. Hallorann. What's in Fargostreet?
    Hallorann: Nothin'! There ain't nothin' in Fargostreet. But you ain't got no business goin' in there anyway. So stay out! You understand? Stay out!

    5 min on google would have found many sites talking about swaping in the 7mge and 7mgte engines. there are even stock mounts that work to mount it up. Hardest part is the trans selection.

    There is a guy from Mpls that did this. I think he sold the truck and it's down in Colorado now, but I'll see if I can find info on how he did it.
