OT: Toyota bbs too slow..motor swap ??

I know a few of you suzuki guy's have FJ's laying around, and visit the Cruzer board so I have a question 4 ya. (or anyone else that might know)
Do any of you have any info, or know where I can get some info on doing a 5.7L swap into an FJ.
I know it's supposed to be easy, but the more info I can get the better!
I've done the search thing on here and haven't turned up much. Plus, I haven't owned my FJ as long, so I don't have an internet library built up quite yet.
Sorry for the long post, but thanks for any help you all can give me!
OH, I'm planning on using my factory 4sp tranny!!

Re: OT: Toyota bbs too slow..motor swap ??

When I put the 350 in my FJ, I got the kit from AA and read the book on the swap. But the most help I got was from an old hot rodder that new how to do motor swaps the old fashioned way (wothout a kit). His pride and joy is an early 50's style ford pickup with a loaded 460 (art work).
But make sure you read the AA booklet, they do not supply all the parts. Like linkage, they give you loose placement.
We put the assy togeather and checked all the measuremnets before we started. Then we checked the frame and made sure it all worked on paper, before we got started. Worked out good. Good luck.

Hey guy's..thanks for the help and the links. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
I was also thinking about picking the brains of a few friends of mine that build hot rods about the project and see what they would know.
I'll check with AA about the kit, but I wanna keep this as cheep as possable. [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]
Do you have to move the motor mounts or anything like that? Or is it mostly getting the linkages right and getting everything bolted up to the tranny?
Poor college student needs beer money to pay his friends to help him with the swap type of thing...lol [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
