Crazy Truck Project


Recommended Posts

Been thinking about posting this here for a while since I've not seen a full build project in AL.

This is pretty much a ground up project to transplant a Toyota Tundra powertrain + a supercharger into a Toyota Tacoma X-Runner and turn it into a race truck.

Tacoma = 4.0 V6 with 6 speed manual

Tundra = 5.7 V8 with 5 speed auto

Target is to keep the outward appearance as stock looking as possible. Target 1/4 mile time is in the 11 second range with about 550-600 HP. Should be interesting...

I'll get some pictures and more details up later on.

This is what's left of the donor truck. She's all naked now :).

From the Tundra we are going to use:



rear differential

diff carrier

wire harness

shift selector

gauge cluster

half shafts

fuel pump

ecu and few other minor parts to make everything fit right.



MadMax, this one is straight line only mate. Doubt she'll do much in the way of going around corners.

The blue Tacoma is in the background getting stripped to the bare frame.

Tacoma getting stripped down. The cab will be painted silver with light black and red accent. The metal flakes on the paint is somewhat old school in that the flakes are bit larger and more pronounced when it's fully painted.





Sample of what the color will look like
