Sounds awesome
There was a member on here on started a similar project with a SWB A but I don't believe it ever got finished. Also there were some original members on here that then moved across to .org/muddies that undertook the same mod. Again, not sure if it every got completed.
Wonder how far the differences are between what these guys have done and the 3.2 SWB B. Mind you, with the rarity of a 3.2 SWB B the V8 mod might prove to be the only feasible option. :wink:

I asked the guy in a comment about what engine he used and here his reply.

It's a Toyota 4.0 v8 1UZFE engine taken out of a 1990 LS400 Lexus.

I found this picture on Google of what the engine looks like. It's awesome.
