Hey there, I have a build thread going on my FJ45 I'm building. I was originally going to use the 1FZ, but I've since changed to a 3UR. I figure a lot of 80 series folks don't wander into the 40 section, but may be inquisitive on using a Toyota V8. I've tried to take many measurements and pictures along the way to help out others that may want to follow the same path.

Here are a couple pictures. The 5.7 fits nicely between the frame rails of an 80. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like other pics/measurements.

Here's a link to my thread for anyone curious. Thanks.

@UZJ40 is a legend in the 40 section. Hopefully he can convince some guys in the 80 section to head down the 3ur road too!

Interesting it fits. I’m assuming using a Haltech or similar standalone would get around the complicated oem engine management and wiring. Looks like compushift makes a transmission controller for the AB60 tranny and wholesale automatic in Australia is working on releasing an adapter to bolt a HV2AV transfer case to it.
Would be the ultimate swap for a Toyota purist.
