    fj60 engine upgrade question. gen v

    the 5.3 im looking at doesn't have a transmission with it but if I go that route and do auto I would probably look for the 6 speed that came in the 2014 truck with the original engine. in texas and I have it registered with antique plates so I don't even have to do an inspection to get it tagged.

    fj60 engine upgrade question. gen v

    true. I am sure not opposed to an automatic just wasn't sure how big a deal it was to change the inside shifter. im sure the clutch pedal can just be removed and maybe I could see how others have done the shifter setup for the gm auto.

    fj60 engine upgrade question. gen v

    I think I will either pursue the 6bt option or look for a gen 3 engine. the gen v I found just seemed like a pretty good buy with the low mileage but it may create more issues then it is worth.
