Manual or auto? you didnt specify......

And with Toyota's, the engine ECU's are mated to the gearbox ECU's in one unit...so if your doing a gearbox swap more than likely will need to reprogram the ECU which might equal $$$$.

Happy to be proven wrong, "might" work in M/T's but the auto's are computer controlled so I think you will have less luck with it.
