Until they are sold, are they ever really done?

Dunno, you may be the expert on that...

It will never be done. There always changes that can be made, different turbos, better axles and suspension, fun gadgets to build for the interior.

Yeah but is it done yet?

"Done" is defined as you're able to use it as originally planned and if you never added anything it would be a want and not a need.

I must have missed it - Did the 1KZ-TE swap into the 1988 4Runner require new engine mounts and custom oil pan? I thought the 3VZ-FE, 5VZ-FE, and 1KZ-TE all shared the same engine mounts and trans (R150/151)?


The 4runner is an 1987. So it came with a 22-RE. Yes I did have to fabricate motor mounts. I ended up redoing them when I rebuilt the motor to lower it and give them a better angle. There were photos of the work on page 17

Thanks so much for the info.

I want to swap a 1KZ-TE into a 1st gen Tacoma. Do you know if the R150F transmissions are the same between the 1KZ-TE and the 3.4 liter 5VZ-FE? I thought I read that the bellhousing and input shaft is slightly longer on the 1KZ-TE version. Can I just use my original 5VZ-FE transmission and bellhousing on the back of the 1KZ-TE engine? I realize you used a R151F transmission.

TIA!

The bellhousing on the 1KZ-te is specific to that engine and has the starter motor on the opposite side. The bellhousing is still available from Toyota Europe brand new. The input shaft I believe is also still available. This would allow you to use your R-150f I obviously havenít  done this but it seems like I have heard of others doing it. I dont see any reason why it couldnít be done.

Rockcrawlintoy and I are trying to figure out at time that we both have off work so we can go wheeling. Does that meet the definition?

10-4. Did your 1KZ-TE engine come with an R151F (and appropriate bellhousing/input shaft)?

No. It came with an auto. I had to hunt down a R151f and order the bellhousing, flywheel, and clutch

People contact me on occasion when they are doing this swap. I can sell it for you if you want to ship it over.
