D4DRunner
« on: Jun 03, 2019, 08:07:58 PM »
Seems to be more action on this site then others I've been on recently, so I figured I'll share some of my project and hopefully get some suggestions and guidance.
Nut Shell... 88 4Runner 3VZ-E SAS, swapping in an '06 1KD-FTV engine, R151F trans with dual boxes.

Some stuff I'm copying from previous posts

 
today we clean the/organize the operating room before surgery. Then I'll remove the trans and get after the 5th gear OD mod since I'll need to order the gears. After the trans removal I'll remove the wheels and drop the whole truck on 6x6s and rmove the coil overs. This will be easier to work on....more to follow

this happened



Did some cleaning....


Then did more cleaning...


then I decided to torture myself with just seeing where this lump needs to sit....


took some measurements (going to install an electric fan)...


The engine is not sitting in its permanent location, as I have discovered a few issues:

  • Oil pan hits the front diff at full stuff, i knew I would need to modify the oil pan and sump
  • Engine mounts seem to be spaced wider and at a slightly different angle on the frame when compared to the mount angle and spacing on the engine
  • Fab up new mounts to shove engine back about 1", and up another 1.5'.....sooooo.....
  • While I'm at it may as well do a drive-train lift, so time to hack into the horse collar
  • Vacuum pump in the front of the engine will be very close to the fan shroud, may have to clearance a shroud


I'm going to fab up some motor mount perches this weekend and hopefully get a solid location for the lump to live. I'll then turn to the oil pan modification.

Made some motor mounts...1.5" drive-train lift, and back .75". Next will be modifying the horse collar.

Did the following before the above post...

ECU was sent to Diesel Toys in TX for an ECU tune. Deleted the EGR and Immobilizer as well as added their mild tune to give more power and more MPG. After running the engine using TechStream I determined injector two would be failing soon, so sent the Injectors off to Baileys Diesel Group in Australia. After speaking with Simon, he told me that the main bearings are not a concern (as I was going to replace the mains) in these engines, but to switch out the hard fuel lines due to the mileage. So, new injectors (Stage 1 15% more flow), valve cover gaskets kit, fuel hard lines and suction control valve for the injection pump.

Valve cover off, the black gets on everything, its worse then anti-seize.


Injectors getting sent out to Baileys Diesel Group, going Stage 1 which has a 15% higher flow for a future mild tune.


Intake manifold nastiness. There is a butterfly valve on the circular cylinders, with about an 1/8" of soot and oil tacked onto it.


To deal with the black death...
Made a parts washer out of some bits we had laying around UnHoly Motorsports.


First pass with the parts cleaner, that is soot in the sink, about an 1/8" thick. This is all due to the EGR, cancer to diesel engines.


Engine back on engine stand for cleaning and maintenance. Will be rotating the engine to clean the intake ports on the head.


More to follow


Did some cleaning on the head intake runners and welding the EGT bung into the exhaust manifold.

Why did you weld a bung rather than tap the manifold?

Well, because I bought a bung not realizing the manifold is very thick and also because I e never welded on cast. So in short, no real reason.

heading to the shop tonight to tack the mounts in place and check for more problems.
I need to get a rear sump from a Prado, its an aluminum housing with a steel lower pan, and I'm having a hell of a time finding someone to ship to me. I need a used one so the sump pick up is included, would rather not buy new.

Thanks

ordered Prado sump from the UK.
Motor mounts are tacked in but there seems to be an issue...
The engine is sitting in the frame a bit diagonally and I'm not exactly sure why. Need to take more measurements and think...

In other news the Dyna 5th gear swap  on the R151 seems to be working out.

Motor mounts are now tacked, I discovered that the 1KD factory mounts are a different angle then the frame side mounts on the 88. So, out came the grinder to clearance the mount to give us proper angle so the motor mounts are now in their neutral position, before you could tell they were tweaked to one side. Once I mount the transmission to see where i need to fab up a new trans mount I'll burn the motor mounts in completely, but after taking a bunch of measurements I'm pretty confident the mounts are in the correct spot.
Prado oil pan, well this pan may actually be worse as far as clearance to the front 3rd. The bottom sump comes out on the passenger side so far that the upper 3rd- link on the top of the diff that the oil pan fouls, so another hurdle i thought I had cleared.....

In the meantime, lets start labeling the wire harness, spent a bit making labels and cheat sheets.

^^^ thanks, I haven't got much to report at the moment....
1. All engine bay connectors are labeled, working on laying out the wiring. body side wiring still needs attention
2. Engine sits too high int he engine bay, so will be cutting the motor mounts to drop the engine 3/4".
3. Assembling the transmission for a dry fit after engine is dropped.

I'll have more pics and updates soon

Hey guys, sorry for the absence, didnít realize anyone was paying attention haha.
I have stalled the 4runner build for a few months while I take a 07 Tacoma basket case and turn it into my daily since my trusty 92 pickup is rusting out from under me.
Thanks
