offers the highest quality V6 and V8 conversions available.
The V6 conversions are for high-tech 4.3L Chevy Vortec engines.
The 4.3L Vortec engines are smoother running, run cooler,
and are much more powerful than the Buicks. The Buick V6 engines,
due to engineering design flaws, have bad vibration problems
which are amplified when installed in the Toyota truck's rigid
chassis. This is especially irritating at freeway speeds!
With the 4.3 V6 conversions you have the option of
retaining your Toyota '85-'95 5-speed transmission
allowing full compression braking, or adapting to the GM automatic
largest amount of requests we receive about engine conversions
are for V8s. We feel, after doing numerous conversions
of both V6 and V8s in our shop - taking into consideration
engine availability, ease of installation, drivability, and
customer satisfaction - most customers will be far happier
in the long run using a small block Chevy or Ford V8. Ford
conversions are gaining popularity because they are narrower,
and the distributor is in front. We recommend automatic
transmissions for competition and hard off-road use. However,
many customers have had excellent success using '85-'95 5-speeds
with reasonable tire size combinations and good driving habits.
