At the risk of getting laughed at, I have a question. What is an "SAS" and "IFS"? Why dosen't anyone build up the Toyota V-6's? It seems everyone builds up the 22R's. I'm new to this stuff, and could use some advice.

Before you get flamed, I suggest the Search function in the upper right.

SAS: Solid Axle Swap

IFS: Definition from Todd, Imensely Flexable Suspension <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

The SAS and IFS questions you would find in a search but the V6 I am not sure I would know what to search for.

SAS (Solid Axle Swap) is when you take a Solid Axle (pre-86 in the US) from the front end and replace the IFS (Independant Front Suspension) in a later model truck (post-86 in the US) with it. This conversion averages around $1000 bucks but can get MUCH more expensive and can obviously be done cheaper.

V6s are not built up because they really can not be from what I understand. It is a waste of time. Maybe because the V6 lacks as much aftermarket support.

I think you can build and adapt an american V-6 cheaper than building the Toy.

Steve, first off, welcome to the board. Secondly..... be very careful what you ask about here, especially if you haven't used the search function. Most of the topics have been beaten to death and when someone posts something like "what about chevy springs on a toyota?" (way too common lately, especially when there's a tech article about it on this site...)they usually get flamed. Just about anything you want to know is already here, just do a search and youll find it. Oh yeah, Don't take it personal if you do get flamed....it's a right of passage.
With that said, enjoy.... <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Not true, for the right amount of money (and we all have it pouring out of our pockets right?) DOA racing ( http://www.doaracingengines.com/ ) will and can get more ponies from your tired 3VZE engine. Mind you, the price is not cheap! as expected I think since not too many companies out there are producing these parts for more HP. Just my $.02
