    Default 3UR-FE swap?

    Has anyone else contemplated this swap? I've been doing some research and I can't seem to find anything on someone trying to put one in a Supra. I'm not even sure what you would use for a transmission. Maybe an R154 with a custom bell housing?

    If anyone does not know what the 3UR is, it's the 5.7 liter out of the latest generation Tundra's and Sequoia's.

    I believe it would be pretty interesting to see one of these with a TRD supercharger in a Supra. What are SM's opinions on this?

    3UR-FE's on Ebay:

    Great idea in theory. The cubic inches would really wake up the car in normal driving. The problem is the external dimensions are probably pretty large. The 1UZ is much more compact (and smaller cubes). The LS1 is also compact and powerful.

    Cool idea, but Nick hit on the head- that engine is enormous. Its hard to get into a Tundra's engine bay, much less a Supra's. If you're made of money and time I'd say give it a go, but that's a big freaking engine D:

    I forget, are they iron block engines? If so, I'd pass. If they were aluminum and you had a big enough shoehorn, it would be a lot like driving a Camaro SS drivetrain in a proper chassis.

    CANBUS as well. It would probably be easier to use a standalone, but that's a lot of added cost...

    All alum, but with floating cylinders. 1uz is much stronger and easier to swap and tune.
