View Full Version : need help with engin picking

12-19-2006, 07:47 PM
i have a 88 toy 4runner with a 3.0L ( it threw a rod through the block ) and i dont know what to put in im thinking a 22re for better gas mileage would a toy 3.0L v6 5 speed bolt up to a 22re?

what would u do ?

12-19-2006, 08:34 PM
OR a diesel but u need a 22re truck to start the swap (g52 trans ) I think

probably need 4 cyl trans but will need harness for sure,not sure if its true but i heard v6 frames are different where the motor mounts go. also could do supra 3l 7mge or newer 3.4l v6

supra motor done out with 400 hp. show up some v-8's

A friend of mine in maple ridge put a supra motor in his toyota pickup and it runs great.[36]

3.4L out of a tacoma or newer 4runner is a direct bolt in for the 3.0L. Basically all you need to do is exhaust (since the 3.4 runs down the passeneger side of truck) and wiring. Way better motor and factory option TRD supercharger[36]

not worth the effort to put a 22re in. wiring is different, motor mounts are different, and i dont think the tranny's are interchangeable.

go with the 3.4

3.4L, for the reasons...power, cost, bragging rights :D

3.4s have plenty of power, they seem to show up v8's in lots of situations

advanced adapters has a bellhousing for 22re to v6 trany,was under new products er sumthin.

12-20-2006, 03:20 PM
why the hell would you want to do that? :confused:

then you need another adapter so you can run the better 4cyl gear driven t-case and/or run dual t-cases

Hard to say, ive never liked the 4 cyl. tranny's. Im on #2 and could go for #3 if i really want to.
