Re: is it to big
Well, as far as Cali is concerned, you'll have to figure out a lot of smog stuff. Considering with a 91 Toy, you'll be better off swapping in a 91 or newer engine, with all smog equipment. The rules are sort of based on that. Of course, if you can prove that the 327 has been smog than your original motor, you *might* be able to get it deferral from a smog referee. I wouldn't count on that, however.
I was planning this with my old '90 Toyota 4x4, and there were a lot of issues to consider. And I was just planning on putting in a 4.3 liter!
Heat will be a problem, plus clearance against the firewall. If you're running a 4x4 you will have issues with the oil pan, and might need a body lift as well.
Advance Adapters had some decent literature on the whole process, but last time I checked their whole website changed drastically that I couldn't figure out what they were selling anymore.
Anyway, hope that helps.
