    when putting a 3FE into a pig did you need the later 2F high hood for clearance? or does the early hood clear?

    Yeah, and what about just using the 3fe head? Will that fit without major work? I've been trying to find info on this swap for a while and can't seem to find a clear cut "3fe head to 2f short block in a FJ55". What is involved?

    It should clear. Stumper put a 3FE in the aformentioned Pig. It was a 74 with a 3FE from a 89 FJ62.
