Exclamation small block in a toytoa?

I have a 1993 toytoa srs pickup with a 3.0 v6. It has a 141,000 miles on it. I am thinking of replacing the engine with a small block. Does anybody know if it is really difficult( would I need to adjust the transmition at all) and if it is worth the time.

I've seen a few with SB in them, from 4x4's to bodydropped mini trucks. I beleive someone sells a kit for the swap, but you'll need a new tranny driveshaft and rear I beleive. Not sure who the company is, but I do beleive they make them. I've seen mazdas and nissans as well.

That would be really cool. There is a guy that has a Mazda at the local 1/8th mile track. He has a SBC in it, and that thing can run.

I always saw adds in some magazines, in the past, for this conversion. Have you found one yet? Best of luck, and post some pictures when you finish.

Try contacting a company by the name of Advanced Adapters in Southern California (LA area). They make a lot of adapters and frame mounts for engine swaps. I think your best bet is to change the transmission too.
You mentioned "small block" - are you talking about Chevrolet? If so, I would go with TH-350 or TH-400. It would be much easier and the GM trans is much better than the original. Be sure to clean out all the rice before completing the project - the American V-8 cannot sustain itself on such a diet.
