88 22re 4runner 3RZ Swap
« on: Jan 30, 2020, 04:49:12 PM »
I have a few questions on swapping a 1996 tacoma 3rz/W59 into my 88 22re 5 speed 4runner. I'm actually almost done with my swap but few things I haven't figured out yet. Anyone know how far down stream my catalytic converter has to be? I can use the stock 4runner gas tank right?

If anyone has any knowledge on this swap that could drop some tips or pointers would be much appreciated! Really close to being done just dont want to get caught with my pants down when I take it to the CA State Referee!

Yotacrawler have you find out the answer for how far the cat has to be? I'm in same situation.
Anyone?
And yes you can use your stock gas tank!

I canít help you with a direct answer, but have you tried calling your local ref. To see what their requirements are on this?

it will differ from ref to ref, so call and ask the ref for their requirements and get it written out

it needs to be as close to or exactly the same distance that it was in the donor vehicle

Sorry guys haven't been online in a bit my daughter was just born 😊
I got my exhaust all done measured my Tacoma exhaust and got the cat and both o2's as close as possible to stock distance/location. Unfortunately my referee appointment has been canceled until further notice... Dang China Virus 😂

Thanks everyone!

Yotacrawler. Big congrats !!!  :clap2: :clap2: :clap2:👍👍👍
I don't have any means of reference to measure the distance. Do you know approximate how far from exhaust manifold?
