Hello out there. I may need to replace my 5VZ-FE in my 1997 Tacoma 4x4. I was just curious whether or not I could swap out the engine for a 4 cylinder? I would not be doing the work myself, and just wanted to know if anyone here has successfully done this. Thanks for reading this.
Thanks for the reply Wyoming9! Well, I thought I would save money by getting a smaller engine both up front and at the gas pump. But I see your point that it will cost me a lot of $$ for someone to do necessary modifications to make it work.

Thanks TA for the advice. Still waiting to hear back from my mechanic whether I need a new engine or not. I think I will just stick with the V6 engine if it will be less complicated and if there won't be too much benefit to convert it to a 4 cylinder engine.
