If you mean doing that to the $500 4Runner with the 22R-E and W56, it would not be easier than any other engine swap. The two easiest swaps for the 22R-E are the 3RZ-FE with the bellhousing Marlin has (or had at least) or the L series diesels. Next easiest would be the ones Advance makes adapters for, the small block Chevy V8 or Vortec 4.3L. If the truck already has a 3.0L V6, then the 5VZ-FE is an easy swap, not so with 22R trucks. Someone needs to figure out an easy way to get a 1GR-FE 4.0L AND 6 speed Taco transmission in for a 22R-E...
