Why go for the GM 4.3L instead of a To-yota V-6? According to Chad Morse, a Toy-to-Toy swap is more complex and expensive. Besides, the 4.3L simply blows away all but the very latest Toy V-6. A '93 Toyota 3.0L EFI V-6 churns out 150 hp at 4,800 rpm and 180 lb-ft of torque at 3,400. The '93 GM 4.3L used here boasts 190 hp at 4,400 and 250 lb-ft at 2,800. Only the new Toy 3.4L comes close (190 hp at 4,800 and 220 lb-ft at 3,600), but the mill came out in 1995, so it's costly and scarce as a swap candidate.
