Use the Search, Luke!

Where there's a will, and a sawzall, there's a way..

CrewCab59 is apparently working on a 4BT swap into that era Toy. I can't say where / how it is, as I've still not managed to get my lazy backside over to his shop yet..

Cheapest way for most folks to get a 4BT is to get a bread van w/ one in it, but there are some good ones for sale here and other places. I believe CrewCab59 has one or two right now, too..

I think most folks are running 3" exhaust, but some are using 4". I've got the feeling that you'll be going 3" with a Toy, if just to help clearance issues.

As always: Use the Search!

They fit like some other small trucks ,tight but works well if you plan out where you want things to go ect.


I do have engine in stock /or complete trucks.

3'' is a good size ,most will have to 3'' to clear the fire wall.

They sould need rebuilt unless they have high miles or wasn't taken care of.I try to stock all low mile engines.
