also, would it even be possible to swap the 3.4 into a first/second gen truck?
which motor is better and why
which is better for crawling
average MPG of both of ppl who drive them
which is more cost effective for a swap
2.7 is a 150 hp motor3.4 is a 199 hp motor
As for price, a friend once told me. If you dont do it the way you REALLY want it. Then you will always be wanting more.In the long run a few hundred buck or even a thousand won't really matter. So go big and be happy.
I want power. Economy is second. And I do plan on a SUPER CHARGER
Great thread, lot of good info. Here are my questions though. First, how much heavier is the 3.4 compared to the 2.7? Or is the difference negligible? Second, obviously a V6 is going to be bigger than a 4 cylinder, but in terms of stuffing one in say a 1st or second gen, how much more cramped is the 3.4?? I know a lot of guys are running 350s and other V8s and that is one hell of a squeeze. Say I was going to put a 3.4 in my 85 4runner. Is it going to basically take every last bit of space? If there is one thing I really hate it is a cramped engine bay. Just wondering about the size difference between the 3.4 and the 2.7 in early model toyotas.
when you look under the hood of a truck with a 3.0 they look crammed. But a 4 banger looks like they are not big enough.
3.4 in an 85 4Runnerhttp://www.offroadsolutions.com/images/projects/85_4runner_5vz-fe_swap/engine-installed-over.jpghttp://www.offroadsolutions.com/projects/85_4runner_5vz-fe_swap.htm
the 2.7 has a 55.5 hp to litre ratiothe 3.4 has a 58.5 hp to litre ratio
Yes, you can get a 3.4 litre motor into a 1st gen truck, 1st gen runner/2nd gen truck or a 2nd gen rrunner/3rd gen truck.
So, if you heavy..3.4 and if your light 2.7.
Another option if you are concerned with mpg and just want a good, more modern 22RE replacement is to get the 2.4L from a Tacoma. 8HP less than the 2.7(feels the same to me, actually) but a couple of mpg better.(EPA says 23mpg average).
I want power. Economy is second.
I would recommend to consider what the godfather has said above,You ultimately need to ask yourself what you truly want: Is it balls-out power (the 3.4) or is it efficiency and practicality (the 2.7)?
