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

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?

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.
