I have an 1983 toyota pick up with a 22r in it and 35's". The motor blew up and I was going to run the 22re in their but I can Get a 5.0 complete enging with wiring and computer out of a 88GT I also have a GT40 intake upper and lower with under drive pullys. Also I can get the C4 trans Dana20 T-case full size dana44 front and ford 9" rear axle's and 39" tires I was going to lock the front and rear and put some gears in them also. I know there is some work envoled puting the spring purchs on the axle's and I know I need a steering box for a toy with IFS and fuel pump. What else do I need and how hard Is this going to be. Thanks for any info.

I hope you've got lots-o-time and $$$... People always forget to include the dozens of trips that cost 20.00 - 40.00 a piece to Home Depot and Kragen. Do you really need a 5.0, D44, ect.ect.ect,

I've already done "kinda" the same thing. 5.0/C-4/ toy case/ I'm going with a chevy front end D44HD and a ford rear D60 I have them set up for 63" (right inbetween full width and stock toy) I'm going with a Saginaw outside the frame steering box...gives room for the ford pump...if not the pump and the box are fighting for the same spot...right now I'm using a different pump that I had to custom make brackets for. I'm swapping to the ford pump and stock bracketry when I do the chevy box. I really like the ford engine set up. I however am going to be swapping out the C-4 and toy case for a NP435/205/203(doubler) or AtlasII. If you do everything yourself it doesn't cost THAT much. I've seen people build a lot lesser rigs and spend a LOT more having somebody else do it. I personally however don't like the full width look unless you are going real big...39 boggers or bigger. Go for it though.... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

If you pickup that HO motor, and I love that motor.. It's a great setup for a toy swap - anyway - sell the GT40 intake on www.corral.net.

If it's got stock heads, the GT40 intake will do NOTHING for you. The restriction on that motor is in the heads! After you do the heads, then worry about the intake.

<STRONG>...upper and lower with under drive pullys</STRONG>
<font color="yellow"> I would recommend against underdrive pulleys on a 'Wheeler. You will have plenty of HP to push a rice-rig without then, and the alternator and power steering stuff already turns slow enough as it is unless your running mud pits or hillclimbs where your winding the motor out.

I would actually think about using OVERDRIVE pulleys, since I'd want my alternator to crank faster 'cause of the winch, and having the power steering stuff with a couple extra PSI won't hurt either. Underdrive is for drag racers, not someone who NEEDS those accessories, IMHO</font>

BTW that 88 is not a mass air engine if it is not a CA model, may want to get an 89 and up..

Unless he's looking to run speed density.. which might not be such a bad thing for a off road beater. But if you want aftermarket support, your going to need to do a mass-air swap. I volunteer to be another source of info for 5.0's.. if anyone cares.
