Any good advise as to creating extra HP while I have it out.

4.3 swap. Cheaper, more available parts. Just ask fillsrunner4.

Started with a 3.4 then went to a 4.3.

I would be suspicious. Seems too good to be true.

That is more hp than a stock 3.4, likely from the upgraded camshaft. It may make good top end power but still be a dog down low pulling away from a stop light. Ask to see the dyno test printout of it. Then show it to us and let the experts do their thing.

I am no engine builder and do not pretend to be, but this seems pie in the sky.

The Hi Pro 3.0L sounds like a very good solution to the 3.0l power problem, also seems to solve the complications of finding all of the right stuff for a 3.4l swap. I am thinking this may be the way to go. I wonder if anyone has first hand testimonial of the power this engine makes?

Sounds intriguing to me...

i am currently rebuilding a 3.0 and the parts are not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. the stealership wants almost $700 for the oil cooler, and over $200 for a knock sensor. And at $118 per rod, this is getting expensive. Don't know how a company can sell a reman for that much and it be reliable in any form. I just named off $1500 worth of parts. If you go that route, good luck...

That's a good point... but really 700$ for an oil cooler - I would suggest going else where. I can understand wanting really good quality internals but the knock sensor, oil cooler etc... cant you find them for much less else where?

I think even if it is not as good as it sounds, there is a 7yr, 70,000mi warranty - You probably would be out a few weekends of labor if the thing turned out to be junk.

That's the hard part, and trust me I'm trying. I have yet to find new rods anywhere. Just started a thread about possible bypass of the oil cooler. And who would be out of the weekend labor, me or you? If the reman comes with a warrenty, read the fine print, it may have to be installed by a certified mechanic. Some shops won't work with parts unless the shop buys them. If you try the install yourself, you may void the warrenty, plus be hard pressed to find a shop to install a third party engine.

But this is what makes this site great, everyone can help when it comes to knowledge!

still wandering

new member here, cool forum

Me: 1995 sr5 4-runner 3.0 v6 auto, stock unit.


So I am also concidering buying a hi-po motor from motorcrate this is the info they sent me. Adding a set of downey headers to the mix thinking I should see 200hp when complete. If anybody has ever bought anything from motorcrate how was it? any problems I should know about?


Concidering I am going to be putting the headers on while installing the engine, I should have plenty of room to bolt them on outside the truck and drop them in attached to the engine? should be easier right?




RPMHPTQ20001301802500150190300017020035001752104000175190450018018550001901605500185150

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Patrick

Whatever happened to the swap? I recently lost valves in both heads and with 200k plus I figure this engine might be enough to get me where I'm going

i rebuilt my stock 3.0...it's got:

K&N (with crappy dirty K&N filter...)
bored .020 over.
and stock everything else.

it's got 4.56 gears and heavy arse 10ply Toyo M/T's. it's no rocket...but i have to be careful not too speed on the highway, if i dont pay attention i'll find myself going 95mph in a 70mph zone. the 3vz has plenty of power for me, but i have a 5speed.

Let's go from my own experience, I've owned a number of Toyotas, i've had ones with 2.4L 22RE, 3.0L 3VZE, and currently a 3.4L 5VZE. Don't waste your time with the 3.0L.
