so box had been removed previously , and I had cut a hole in the back of the cab for the "long box Trekker" I built ... Now that that project is all done (for me anyway) It was time to get to work on my project .
I sold the long box frame .. and I need alot of the pieces for my trekker .. so time to strip it . lots of work yesterday , cut the roof off , and rockers , and cab corners .. I'm going to make some replacements so i wanted to keep them . got the engine bay mostly stripped , and engine out .
so got the POR-15 in Yesterday .. but have been way busy .. so not much progress .
I'm still .. WAY .. "stuck" on an engine just dont know what to do ?
so I today figured , I will proceed with the frame protection .. get the diffs done and attached .. and then at least I will have a "rolling chassis " and be able to "kick" it out side .. maybe by then i will have an Idea on the engine I want .
that is something that i am still learning myself. start from the bottom and go up. everything eventually reveals itself. it is hard sometimes because i like to try to have everything all planned out too maybe you can copy that supra install your customer is doing? arnt you doing that on your 2WD "work" truck as well? seems like it would be easy to just make 2 sets of everything that you make for the 2WD conversion?
nawww the 7Mgte is out of the question .. I only have a "mock up" block left , and would cost WAYYY to much to get it into the Trekker .. (I have ~ 10G into the one in the 2WD)
i'm lookin' more for fuel economy .. I have been looking at a diesel swap .. but to be honest , by the time I do the swap .. finantially , it aint worth the fuel savings .
3.4L , is very Tempting .. but up here , best price I have , including tranny and Transfer and everything I need , is 3G ... + then 3G for a supercharger .. (can do that later) .. but i'm not sold on the fuel economy yet .
