If you go with a 3rz you dont need to mess with the cases. Just put the 3rz bellhousing on your existing transmission. Tons of people have done 2/3rz swaps in California. Search the forum a little.
... My main stumbling blocks are 1) understanding how to make an engine swap legal in California and 2) finding a shop that can do it. While I used to do all of my own work, I no longer can because I have no garage or off-street parking..... Thanks a bunch for answering my n00b questions!
I’ll add my 2 cents worth…. I have very limited engine swap experience, however, I know someone who does it for a living. If you decide to go the engine swap route, I would be very careful to do your homework on every aspect of your project.You mentioned finding a shop that will do the swap.In addition to the quality of the donor and parts…… finding a shop that is fanatical about doing it right will be a key factor in your successful swap. Then… be prepared to go over your estimated budget. Based upon the swap experts I’ve had conversations with, and the swaps documented on the internet – it is often the “little things” in a swap that will quickly add to the cost.Gnarls.
I just bought a 97 4Runner 2wd with a 3rz to swap in my 87 4Runner. Does anyone know if swapping from a 2wd to 4wd will be an issue? I heard that the ECU must be 4wd if it's going into a 4wd is something that has recently changed.
