88 Toyota 4Runner engine... To swap or not to swap?
« on: Dec 01, 2018, 02:19:01 PM »
Hey guys itís been a while since Iíve posted anything on here. Itís been about 15 yrs since Iíve had a Toyota. I just picked up a 1988 Toyota 4Runner SR5 with the V6 and engine is knocking real bad. Going into it I was planning on replacing the engine. Should I try to find another 3.0, 3.4 or go for the 4.3; stay gas or go diesel, something else? What do yíall think?

3.4 swap, you should be able to find a donor Runner for what it would cost you to rebuild the 3.0.
'90 black X-cab mod'd 3.0, 33's/4.88's, rear ARB, custom bumpers, sliders, safari rack, etc.
