    Might have dreamt it but I'm sure I've seen more than one Hiluxs running a 3sgte. Not sure if you need a bell housing adaptor etc...

    I think just the 3rz would be sweet, or the 1grfe if you really want power.

    Id also like your Y bellhousing, starter and flywheel when you do the swap. Haha.

    QLD follows the national code of practice for light vehicle mods. You can google for it really easy. You can put big engines in most commercial vehicles because they will have a ladder chassis that is strong regardless of how big of an engine you bolt onto it.
