Hilux engine

Anybody know if this will bolt up to a Land Rover tranny?? Specifically a LT 77?

No it won't. But you may notice that it includes a trans and t case with the correct side drop for land rover axles. You could have some driveshafts made and drop the entire drivetrain in if you really wanted.

Any idea how much it would cost to have driveshafts made. I've driven trucks with these engines while deployed and they are solid.

Not very much compared to the time/money it could take to do the swap.


Maybe $750 for both?

A good driveshaft shop can make you a nice one for 300-400 each. But you still have to make engine mounts, transmission mounts/crossmember, wiring, coolant plumbing, power steering lines, an e brake, mount the intercooler... It wouldn't be impossible, but the driveshafts would be the easy part.

Hilux's are crazy, used by special forces and Hajis alike, hell I've hauled these things in a Herk, they are indestructible! Good point though, it is kind of like crossing the streams in Ghostbusters...

On expedition with NLX in the Peten jungle we went in with 2x 110s followed by 3 hiluxes with locals as a seperate group. When we came back out there was one abandoned hilux and a 2nd that was using tree branches as a make shift leaf spring.

Toyota can kiss my ass.

So In everyone's opinion how much do you think this would end up costing me? How much would a 3.5l v-8 setup with a complete propane setup with a rebuilt LT 77 be worth assuming everything is working normal)? I guess I'm looking for my net cost so I can get it approved by CINC house......

Why do you want that motor? It looks like it only puts out 91hp and 139tq, definitely a downgrade in power from your 3.5.

Just curious if there was something that attracted you to that particular engine instead of a different diesel, that's all. It's fun to think about different engine swap options. I have a list of about 5 different engines I wouldn't mind having in my truck if I didn't have my 200tdi. I personally think that there are better options out there besides the 2.4 Toyota diesel in question. Often times a diesel swap doesn't make financial sense it all you are trying to achieve is better fuel Milage. It would take so many thousands of miles to offset the cost of the swap. But in my option there are more factors than just fuel milage that can make the cost of the swap worth it.
