i was going to run a small block. i planned on using a set of shorty headers since the fit is pretty tight. but the 4x4 guys seem to do it all the time. you can buy the kits to basically bolt it in. just google. small block chevy conversion for toyota, or something to that effect.

well what im plottin on is possibly using the yota suspension clip to put under another truck.
im not sure if im gonna use the chevy sb or a ford sb. i have a 350 motor that needs rebuilt but i also have a c4 tranny to go on a 302. so im not sure which way im gonna go on that. plus ill end up making custom motor mounts since the yota motor was taken out with a torch.

so im just trying to get info on doing the swap with either motor and which parts are needed

I've never seen one in a 2wd. My cousin has one in a 4wd. Most of the conversion motor mounts sit the motor pretty high. They bolt to the stock frame mounting points and use car small block mounts because they're lower profile. This setup requires a body lift, though. Depending on the pan/crossmember clearance it may be possible to sit it lower. If you get rid of the clutch fan and run electric, there is plenty of room to sit the engine far enough forward to clear the distributor.

Adding a small block chevy to your yota isn't as hard as you would think. Adding a small block ford would take a little work. The chevy has the oil pump in the rear of the oil pan much like the original toyo engine. I was going to put one in my truck but listening to folks on the internet (saying you have to add lift kit etc.) I decided to go with a 7MGTE. I have since met a guy who live not far from me and he put one into a 1988 toyo with no problem and no lift kit. he did how ever make his own motor and transmission mounts to have the engine sit lower in the truck. He races this truck all the time and has no problems with it. Using a Ford the oil pan would have to be highly modified because the oil pump is in the front of the engine and this would hit your draglink. Even with putting the 7MGTE into my truck I had to notch my oil pan to clear the draglink.
