I'm guessing that is not the original engine. Nice work but ugly as hell bodykit! :doh:

i think it looks hot, but the rear seems to flare out a too much, but still hot.

the body kit was probably made just to help fit some of that piping for the turbo kits.

any details on the engine or the turbo kit?

Im guessing RWD???

Im guessing RWD???

I think so too it kinda looks like a 22r engine but i may be wrong. It was done with the 1st gen also... :ponder:

Every time I see a FMIC I just weep, I so miss turbos.

looks like a sequoia and tundra v8 engine and a rear wheel drive but I think is for show only and maybe is not like DIY weekend proyect(sorry for speeling)

10-31-2007, 09:56 PM

It looks to me like it is either the 4.7L or 5.7L V8 out of a Tundra. There were rumors of it being done a couple of months back. At work we even heard of one drifting on a closed coures, with toyota execs there to wittness it.

I dig it. The kit actually makes the original body look smaller, and the headlights not so bugged out. But then again, I like extreme designs. Just don't have the $ to do it myself.

11-01-2007, 12:53 PM
t the hood. but thats crazy...!

11-01-2007, 01:07 PM
that thing is so bad a$$ i cant belive it :D

this sureley proves, if there is a will there is a way.. its also reminds me.. when i went to Formula Drift like three weeks ago, Tanner Foust and his 350z. hes got a nissan titan v8 in his car..
it was quite amazing.. we werent sure what was in it at the begining but we all new it was a v8.. so we asked him.. he says its basically just the titan motor with a couple bolt-ons

It is in fact the 4.7 from an 03 Tundra. Yes, it is rear wheel drive obviously. It has a narrowed ford 9" rear end and is 4-linked. No floor in the rear. They had to do construct a tranny tunnel. From what I saw, it didnt look like they had to move the firewall...

Here are a few that I took..... Sorry for the sideways ones. I didnt have time to rotate. ( ( (

wow, that is a lot of time & effort..
especially, mounting the .. corvette??? engine w/ rear drums and such..

it would be perfect drift car, since the weight of the front of the car is very heavy & it's rear wheel drive.

Thats not a corvette motor. Its a 4.7L V8 out of a Toyota Tundra pickup. Its also rear disc brake. The brakes were probably the easiest part since they just used a ford 9" rearend...
