v8 Toyota 2wd Pickup?

Does anyone know of a build where a person put a sbc in a 2wd toyota pickup? What I've found are people "thinking" about it.

Auto trans also, Would a 200r4 be a good choice?

I've seen a bunch of different small block V8's (Chevy, Ford, Toyota/Lexus, etc) in 4wd drive trucks, so I imagine a 2wd would work too. You might have to modify or replace the front part of the frame though, as I believe the 2wd drive frame is a bit narrower then the 4wd ones. Other then that, not having a diff and drive train stuff to worry about seems like it would make it easier to me. This is coming from someone who has never done it though, and just read about swaps.

700R4 would be the better choice.
If you want small then run a 'glide.

I had a customer do this swap, with an LT1 I think. He was building a drag/street type truck. He bought a front coilover conversion kit from me, so he could ditch the torsion bars that hang so low. He linked the back, built a transmission mount, and use motor mounts from Advanced Adapters I think.

I have fit a SBF and T5 in one. Would like to do a SBF and C4 or AOD in mine eventually.

A very common swap throughout the '80 & '90s in Australia was to replace the 22R with the smaller Holden V8 (253 cu). They made a pretty nice road vehicle.

A lot of people have done 1UZ and 2JZ swaps too, keeping it in the Toyota family.

Why make it difficult for yourself, get a motor trans combo, your 1uz ecu is designed to have feeds from the standard auto.... why not just drop the whole lot in saves you having to buy an aftermarket comp, another trans and an adapter kit, if you want to manualise it run a search for A340 shift kits there are a few out there now... so cost you bugger all (under $100)

I've helped fit a 1uz to a gen 2 hilux 4wd, I've never had a measure up and compared the 2wd to teh 4 but I've swopped bits of chassi and body pannels round on them without much dramma so they must be similar enough to not be an issue so the points we found should be the same
Engine is tight well you are going from four to eight, there are a couple of things you'll need to do to help it fit, first your handbrake if its like the hilux it will come through the firewall into the engine bay and down, swop it for a v6 surf one they rout inside the firewall
You'll need to keep your standard block hugger exhusts... unless you want to cut up your inner guards
Not certain on length of the engine bay but if its the same you'll have to get a wee bit creative to fit a new rad I think the one you'll want is a 1jz supra been a while sorry and memory isn't that good just measure up before you buy it
Only other thing is an aftermarket fuel pump, we never gave the original a chance to see if it would run, we just figured it would be a bit much for it

hope this helps

Cheers Reece

Yes! plenty of big blocks running 200R4, check out the GN Turbo Buick guys.
Lots of arguements that its better than 700R4 if built properly.

Glide = 2 speed and expensive, 200R4 is the same size. T350 is too and T350
can handle lots of power w/o upgrading like a 200R4.

FWIW
