    First generation = 2000–2006
    Second generation = 2007-2013
    Third generation = 2014+ (also referred to as Gen 2.5 since it has the same power plant)

    That would be pretty rad. Wonder if that has been accomplished yet. Scary fast.

    Lets get crazy. How about a 3u in a FJ40? Or, an old Geo Metro power plant in a Tundra.Would get good MPG because it wouldn't ever move. Wait: MPG's would suck.

    3u is a heavy engine. Fj40 would need frame work done just for weight alone Geo metro that engine would crush the lightweight frame and unibody work.

    Put it in a supra and go home.

    Shoot's my Geo Mod out the window. The 3u is aluminum block. Not crazy heavy but like you said with a few tweaks and the transmission issue, someone might figure it out. I would definitely want a ride.

    You'll need that crossing streams in AK. Your good to go. Just need the camp stove and canvas tent.
