Bill managed to stuff a Vortec 350 under the hood of his Toyota using mostly factory GM parts. The A/C was even hooked back up and run on the same serpentine belt as the York air compressor. Air lines were run to both the front and rear for ease of use. A Ford Explorer fan shroud and mechanical fan keep things cool in the Northwest Off Road radiator held by a custom cut core support that has been pushed forward 1 inch on top and 2 on the bottom. To stop the big Toy, a Super Duty master cylinder pumps fluid to the 1-ton disc brakes that sit at all four corners.
