Finally got around to pulling the donor engine (3.4 V6) from the 96 4Runner. Next a mad dash to pull the 3.0 and complete the swap by CM10. T

Congrats! How do you plan on handling the exhaust RH-to-LH change?

Since ORS is gone, I guess I will use the flanges and fab a new crossover. Got any thoughts?

Yeah, I am about to do the same thing... to REPLACE the ORS crossover! I plan to follow the process broadly outlined on Yotatech. Not a lot to it technically. More like, a lot to it grinderly and die cutterly. Then, MAYbe, get it ceramic coated for heat management and erosion control.

If you want to go ahead and put your motor in rather than use it for a jig, I have a motor on a stand I intend to use for the same purpose. If you want to tack it together using my motor.

Uh, Don't think I agree with that. I would run single exhaust, opposite side from fuel line. It just makes sense. There is really no need for dual setup with a 3.4L. If you were running a 350 or other V8 then I could see the point, maybe.

Thanks for the offer, Bill, but I am in Tucson right now. I am leaning toward the same thing you are, cut, grind, tack and weld. I saw the info on the ceramic coating vs heat wrap. Glad I saw it before I did it.

Are you going to use stainless or mild steel? Terry
