Anyone around Phoenix done a 3.4 swap

So I'm considering swapping out the 22re for a 3.4 if the price is right. I just rebuilt my trust ol 22re about 2 years ago and it runs fine but when your other ride has 4.0 Toyota engine it feels like night and day.

So I've been reading and I know it is quite a bit of work. I want to know if anyone local is willing to help me if I need a hand, or just let me see their swap so I have something to go off and maybe even take me for a ride so I can feel & hear the difference.

Yup, I swapped the tired 3.0L for a 3.4L 2 years ago. Yes, it is a night and day difference! I'd be glad to show you what I've done and some of the research necessary for your swap according to what year donor engine you get. I'm in Tempe at Ray/Rural. PM me.

I have done 2 3.4 swaps now, one on a pickup and the my current vehicle is a 4runner. That also including a auto to manual swap. The truck ran great when I got rid of it and the 4runner is my daily driver now. Im in Queen Creek.

Depends on how much a donor will cost and whether or not you do the work yourself. Anywhere from $1500 - $5000 or so

Do a couple searches. There are quite a few write ups in the swap section here. You'll need the 3.4 engine harness, ecu, some custom wiring, custom exhaust, etc. The 3.0 engine mounts bolt right on with some minor modifications. I used the 3.0 ac compressor with the 3.4 ac clutch

To be honest, it all depends on how much you get the motor for. I got mine for 800, all in all I had the swap done for about 1200. Most of the parts for the 3.0 will swap over. Also depends on if you do it yourself. I did all wiring and work, including exhaust, myself for 1200 with the motor included. Its more work if your swapping auto to manual (as I did in my second swap). Definitely worth it though. Let me know if you have any quesfions. Sorry if the grammar is bad, writing this from my phone.

Well my 3.0 finally took its last run. Does anyone know of a donor motor out there? Or someone with a shop that can get this done in a weekend....either the swap or just a replacement?
