ID:	13945The 1966 Toyota stout, My goal is a daily driver/ vintage taste full hot rod mini truck-ish (so no barbed wire or half naked amazons fighting a pack of wolfs). I'm planning to an engine swap, as the truck is reportedly dangerously under powered and tuff to find parts for being a 8r? with a 4 on the column. I'm planning to do some sort of carbed engine swap for the main reason I'm awful at wiring. so a 3tc or 18r? but first its fixing the rust.

    here is a few photo of the truck

    R series sounds cool - maybe a 22r turbo?

    Also, super rare? Like too rare to motor swap and daily?

    thanks , Can any one tell me what I'd be looking at cost wise for a 3tc 5 speed or a 18r 5 speed locally? Im still open to suggestion engine wise if any one has any budget friendly options.

    18rc/g is the only engine that will go in with out extra fab work.
    this would be the only reason to run one. think it was clay or brett who might be sitting on one locally.
    18rg not worth the cost imo.
    use your 8r head on the 18rc to bump compression( thats why i want it

    look into a 3rz or 2rz over a 22re. (will cost more aswell both will require wiring )

    I'd rather a 3tc over a 18rc

    locally i have seen 3tc's advertised in the 300-400 range .most here, me included would say thats a high price.
    few months ago there was a 3tc 5 speed corolla asking $800 on used vic.

    Yeah, everything Jester said..

    If you do want to mildly warm up an 18RC I have a single sidedraft 18RC manifold here..

    RG's have had their day, imho. Unless required to stick with it because of class restrictions or a period correct build.. its just not worth the hassle.

    $300-400 for a running motor, Id consider a completely fair price.. especially as it is becoming harder to find em .. (how many TExx's do you see on Usedvic or in the yards?)

    Cool project, look forward to seeing it moving..

    Get away from 18rc. 22r or 2/3rz.

    3tc are front sump and need to be due to oil pump location.

    Thanks guys, The 2/3rz stuff look cool but the computer/ wiring stuff looks out of my league.

    I found a guy that says he has an old Celica engine with a 5 speed, headers, cam, dual carbs, dual point disruptor but he was asking like 1500. Or a low mile 3tc 5 speed with only 50k on it for 1500. maybe I wrong, but that seem steep since I bought my last t50 for $50 for my old 81 corolla few years ago. I haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet, since I have rust repair still to go.

    There was a 3tc Hilux build on an another forum and it did look like it needed a custom oil pan? But I'll check the Stout to see if it has the room in the engine bay.

    Cool truck! Maybe find out for yourself how deadly slow the 8r is and worry about the rest for now?

    Excuse my ignorance but is 8r and 18r not similar to later 22r's? That would be a pretty cool easy swap. I know 22re was mentioned but fuel injection etc isn't worth the work for an E.

    It would be kindda rad if you could stick with that gear box and column shift. Cool how Toyota had a 4 speed trans so early. 4 on the tree doesn't quite have a ring to it though..

    Carbed, cammed 22r would be what I would do for simplicity.

    1500 for a stock 3tc is ****ing nuts. You could buy a core and rebuild it for that price and have a 0 mile engine.

    There is a race built 2tc with t50 on vancouver craigslist right now with sidedrafts and exhaust for 1500.

    50-100 for a core 3t 200-500 for a good well cared for runner, 100-250 for a t50.

    OR just do a 22r for nothing because they are everywhere and cheap.

    ^ Do this. In fact, stock any year 22r with a bigger (but not too big) cam will be just right, even the stock carb isn't bad if it's in good shape. Parts are easy to get too.

    Ya know, wiring the older motors isn't hard, especially if you get something that's from a car with a factory service manual in English. Lots of electrically smart guys in your area.

    Rz with some custom side draft carbs sounds like a wicked blend of new school power with old school flava, but you're looking at electronics work for spark.
