4 cylinder engines yes. V8? I doubt it.


Toyota Motor Corporation's V family of engines were a longitudinally mounted V8 engine design. They were used from the 1960s through the 1990s. The V family engine was used in the prestigious Toyota Century. The V Family is often referred to as the Toyota Hemi as the engine features a similar cylinder head design to those found on the Chrysler's Hemi, even though most of the engine design is completely different. 1963 - V - OHV,, 1963-1967 - 2.6 L (2599 cc) V. The V 2.6L engine was first used in the Crown 8, part of the second generation Crown from 1964 to 1967. Thereafter the Crown 8 was replaced by the upmarket Toyota Century, 1967-1973 - 3.0 L (2981 cc) 3V,,, 1973-1983 - 3.4 L (3376 cc) 4V,,, 1983-1998 - 4.0 L (3995 cc) 5V,,, The 3V, 4V and 5V engines were used in the Toyota Century up until 1997 when it got a complete redesign and gained the 5.0 L 1GZ-FE V12. The V series engines, like several Toyota Motor Corporation engines (e.g. 2T-C, 2M, 4M etc) at the time had a hemispherical combustion chamber. The position of the sparkplugs, like the 2T-C and Chrysler's Hemi, were located on the top of the head.


Good luck finding a Crown, not for export.


or a Toyota Century not for export, only in Japan but there is a v8 like you want, I do not know how you will get it or parts. But will say I owned a Nissian from Japan when I finally did need parts I contacked a company that dealt in this and took 2-3 months to get and then the Gobberment changed the import laws here and made it impossible to get them here so I think you out of luck all together unless you can convert one of the 4.0l Lexus gs400 4.0l or gs430 4.3l, sc400 4.0l or sc430 4.3l, ls400 4.0l or ls430 4.3l v8's or RC-F 5.0l OR Toyota Tundra v8's 4.6l & 5.7L Sequoia 4.7l just use stand alone computer modules.
