    i'm planning of getting a 97 landcruiser. most likely the milage will be >70k. question is: when the engine gets old should i rebuild and supercharge/safari turbo it or engine swap to the 4.7L V8. i've heard that the V8's power is a world of difference. has anyone done this type of engine swap? and what are the details. thanks in advance

    The 4.7 is a nice motor. I don't think it will prove to be as durable as the I-6. I have not heard of anyone doing the swap yet. The V-8s are still way too expensive with all the electrics you would have to swap in with them. Should be an easy swap though.
    I'll be happy to take the 4.5 off your hands. mmmm..FZJ-40 :D
