My 4.5 Petrol Auto 6 cylinder GXL 1998 Toyota 4WD 105 Series

Customer Question

My 4.5 Petrol Auto 6 cylinder GXL 1998 Toyota 4WD 105 Series sounds noisey is smokey at 240,000 kilometers. Wondering if it is hard to fit the 4.7 Lexus V8 in it. With 5 speed. As Find it needs more grunt to tow my Caravan. Thankyou Max
JA: Good to know. The mechanics have tons of experience dealing with this sort of thing. How old is your transmission?
Customer: Original 240,000 k
JA: Ok. We'll get you to one of the go-to transmission guys. Other than the problems you mentioned, how has the car been running?
Customer: Noisy on start up. Smells a bit oily. Otherwise goes well
JA: Noted. I'll pass this info along to the mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Anything else I can tell the Toyota Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: Is the cost of rebuilding the 4.5 six Cylinder much cheaper than rebuilding an 8 Cylinder. And my 105 Chassis is close to the 80 series with no IRS and stronger Chassis with LSD. Does that make the fitting of a 4.7 harder
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience dealing with ABS (as well as brakes in general.) Do you happen to have the code? Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.

HI, I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question. Ok, it is much more than just whether the engine will fit in your vehicle's engine bay, which it will. You will need the wiring harness and computer from the donor vehicle. You will also need the transmission and the driveshaft will have to be custom made. Then you will need custom made engine and transmission mounts.
