Question about 1986 Toyota Pickup 4WD
Does anyone know if it would be possible to drop a 6 cyclinder engine into my 1981 Toyota 4WD pickup truck? I love the truck, it runs super well, has only 102K miles, is in great shape otherwise ... but the little 4 banger doesn't allow for much hauling or pull in the mtns with a full load. So: can I upgrade it to more power? if so, what kind of engine should i look to buy? and what's a ballpark on what it might cost me? thanks!
Yes it is possible, but very involved. Personally I would buy a donor Toyota pickup that has a V6 in it. U-hual had a lot of those. It was the really small box truck.
You will need everything basically, the harness, the computer, and anything specific to that engine. Would make it a whole lot easier if you had the donor truck right there.
Oh, and by the way, it is a very tight fit.
