Ok since there was 5 pages of hijacked nonsense :rolleyes: due to my inability to be patient, this is where I post:

So it begins!

Here's what the 4runner looked like after the wreck...

This is the frame damage that pretty much totaled it.

Here is the platform. I may have payed too much, but under the circumstances I think I did pretty good and helped a friend out.

It's got nifty bed ties!

This is all getting torn out this weekend I'll be getting an R151 and t-case from Addicted Off-road that will replace the R150.

Actually this truck was originally sold to some friends of our by someone from Slee. I don't remember who.

A little bit of rust issue on the bed seam near the left taillight.

Remember, you can convert your current 3.4 harness to a manual transmission if you find a 99 4runner ecu. I'm not sure if the Tacoma or Tundra will work yet, I have not looked at the connector breakdowns.

Actually I still have the 2001 Auto harness that came with my current 3.4 and I found a 2001 Taco Manual Ecu on Yotatech. So I will need to do some converting but now I don't need to find a 1999 ECU. When do you think you will be available to help with that?

3.4 Supercharged with an R151 Turbo Tranny first, then eventually it will get my Crawler suspension too.

After the engine is done, the RTT will be going on the bed and I might fix the rust issue money permitting and money permitting yet still Line-X the bed or maybe a homebrew roll on bed liner.

Brian (thefatkid) what was your solution to the fuel line being on the wrong side?

Which clutch should i use? 3.4 or 3.0?

Do I need to be concerned about Driveshaft length with the tranny swap?

I know I have more questions for anyone to answer, but I can't remember right now.

thefatkid
01-29-2010, 04:30 PM
You might have enough fuel hose to make the strech to the passenger side. I've seen guys online do this with good results. If not, Parker hose can make just about anything (a 5" extension is what mine is).

I used the 3.4 flywheel, clutch, and disc. The 3.0 throwout bearing must be used with the 3.0 belhousing. I wanted to try a 3.0 flywheel machined to fit a 3.4 disc. On one swap I had a brand new 3.0 clutch so I used that, it didn't have any slip issues (I did sell that truck pretty quick though).

I'm not sure about the drive lines. Measure the tranny length difference when they are sitting on the ground.

That's what I am running.

Of course, I am just the dad and everything.... :rolleyes:





You have to measure the tranny etc. but if you like you can measure mine when you come over to fab the crossover. FAIK the R150 and 151 are extremely close dimensionally. Internally they are VERY close. Same rebuild kit.

01-29-2010, 05:14 PM
Awesome. I think I might try a slightly higher performance clutch from the Clutch Dr. They have really reasonable prices. Any thoughts on this?

The transmissions are very similar, I'm thinking the gear drive case is shorter then the chain drive by an inch or two.

Edit: Justin, if you want to discuss wiring you should come over one time. I can bring home the paper manuals to make it easier then online.

The tranny is hangin and the engine is about ready to come out.

01-30-2010, 07:53 AM
The pump diameter is smaller then the stock one. I just used a couple of hose clamps to hold the pump in the correct position. I think they might make a larger pump, the 225?, I can't find the specs though. You don't really need the greater flow of the larger pump.

01-31-2010, 12:34 AM
Out with the old...

Got everything pulled out today and got started on the crossover pipe. Luckily I had a blown up 3.4 to use as a template :rolleyes: My dad and I are both doing this but with slight variations. I'll post pics of both and what I did once it's done, but I am basically following this yotatech thread (http://www.yotatech.com/f160/build-your-own-3-4-crossover-pipe-138902/).

That is what I am running. 3.4 starter, 3.0 bell.

Ok I'm running a 3.0 bell housing with the R151, so probably going that route, but it sounds like it'll all work.

My next question: what clutch kit brand should I use? Toyota my cost is over 300 :eek: and I'm not sure what to trust out side of that. A Luke clutch is just over $200 and another (insert brain fart here) was $189. With hard wheeling and a Supercharger should I look into something a little more performance? Super cheap?

I am a big fan of Toyota reman clutches...

Marlin sells HD clutches which you might look into, but $249 plus shipping...

I'd go Toy reman for the 3.4 unless it is more than that $249.

(oh... and the kid gave me a real compliment by copying what I did for the crossover. Except he preserved the right downpipe, moved to the left, which was a tad cleaner. But I needed less backsweep to end up with sufficient room in front of the flex joint... so it's all good.)

Applied Plastics: $235......................(303) 835-1611.......www.appliedplastic.com
5000 Tabor Street, Wheat Ridge, CO‎
-lots of different finishes
-prefers 'turbine coating', designed to be piston dome coating (!!!), titanium in color. Good to 2,000*F+. Advised against internal coating (?) because single coating is sufficient; retains the heat and increases velocity, actually keeping metal cooler. Nevertheless will spray down the first bends.
-flat black available
-$120 minimum most likely, needs to see
- 5-10 day turnaround
-spoke to Casey, in charge of automotive sales. Very impressive conversation, educational, seems to know his schiznit.
-also offers nylon coatings for racks/bumpers, 3x durability of powder coat, also for coilovers. Good release properties, nothing sticks.
They will be at the Tri-State Swap Meet, this coming weekend, at the Stockyards.

Premier Coating: $200.......................(303) 282-4451
1921 West Yale Avenue, Englewood, CO‎
-actual price for just the crossover, $125 (their minimum). Includes internal/external media blast, offers three colors.
--matte silver or matte black, good to 2,000*F
--polished silver, good to 1,300*F
-they can color the flex coupling or leave it masked. Coloring does not affect flex.
-Tony is the owner and was quite helpful and friendly.

Pristine Powder Coating:$210..............(720) 488-5499
3768 South Lipan Street, Englewood, CO‎
-$75 for 3' piping
-inside & out, sandblasted
-3 satin finishes good for 2,000*, silver, black, and tungsten
- 1 week turnaround time, sprays ceramic 1x/week, usually on Weds or Thurs.
-Tapes off the flex coupler
- Spoke to Lee. Probably the least impressive discussion, seemed like Lee was tired.

Phone added for posterity. The first was most impressive; but Tony seemed to be no slouch either. Prices the prices after the dashes are crossover only; they can do iron manifolds at increased cost.

Well... I think it is a really nice looking truck. I am generally a fan of tube beds, there are some really cool designs out there. But it isn't as cheap to do as you might think, and I know you were wanting to build a nice, clean sleeper and capable DD instead of a thrasher or purpose-built...

You'll make a good decision, whichever one you make.

I'd make my own with some plate and cardboard that fits the holes :)

Ok your engine mounts are too old. You need to go find some cast steel ones out of the newer 90-95 vintage 3.0l.

That does look like the correct oil dipstick tube boss.

I think I'll just need the passenger side. The driver's mounts up just fine, unless the positioning is just wrong.

Ran into issue #1. this is the passenger side 3.0 motor mount bolted to the 3.4 block. Solutions?

For some reason my reply didn't post earlier... :rolleyes:

Make your own mounts! Will end up a lot cleaner, cannot fail and take up less room. Easy fab!

this the cast piece behind the driver's side motor mount I drill into for the 3.0 dipstick?

Looks like it. Find someone who has one of Mikes drill guide or use the new dipstick tube and insert to determine position and angle.

Don't have the welding resources at my shop. Aaaaand it'll probably cost about the same since you can just get 3.0 motor mounts

Yea mrdoug on CoTTORA is letting me borrow his. Unless someone closer than Loveland has one... :doh:

You could verify against your old man's motorvator.

Hey guys, take a look at this matrix I made for wiring my 4Runner.

I am attaching a spreadsheet I made to match up the wiring from the 91 4Runner (5 speed M/T 3VZE) with the 96 4Runner (5 speed 5VZ-FE). Guys take a look and flag anything you see that does not look right. I think it is self-explanitory but question anything you see.
Thanks, Terry

Looks like your missing the reverse switch. Looks ok without getting a EWD and tracing everything out.

New question. I just drilled the hole for my new dipstick and the 3/8" is too small for the ones I have(3.0 truck and 3.4 Runner) The ORS instructions don't say anything about drilling any bigger after using the guide. Which one am I supposed to use?

Cutting your flywheel now.

I don't know about drilling the guide, I never did that one.

What did you do for a dipstick?

All my blocks are pre-2000. I looked for those model years because of the dipstick tube predrilled and the harness. A 1999 harness is the easiest for the conversion harness.

What did you do for a dipstick?

Mine was a 96 and had the plug that I just used a drift to remove. The union that the guide goes into has a machined shoulder that seats on the block. The hole size should be a press fit for the smaller portion of the union.

Part Numbers
Union - 90405-10033
Dipstick Guide - 11452-62060
Dipstick - 15301-62060
o-Ring - 96721-19010

Hope this helps. Terry

Gonna get the hood custom cowled. The supercharger sits about three inches above hood line.

These are the ceramic coated manifolds and crossover. I didn't get pictures when the engine was out.

I won't lie I'm super intimidated by the wiring. I can't seem to make the conversion harness diagram work right.

Grrrr.... :(

So my blue PITA project is mobile!

I'll post up more pics soon but thefatkid was beyond helpful and did an awesome job on the conversion harness :bowdown:

Once I got rolling a few things popped up that needed immediate repairs :rant: like u joints coming apart. So I went to see Bill's Englewood Driveshaft and problem solved. But while in Front Wheel Drive found my CV's making hella noise. My heater controls feel all jammed up so I took it apart and found someone had tried to bolt together broken lever parts :confused:

Ah the joys of an old project truck.
On the plus side it keeps up with Ford Raptors so that's :cool:

Nice work man, That thing is gonna be sweet.

I totally dig it.

Will a hood scoop from a later model 4-runner fit?

Squishy!
12-03-2012, 06:58 AM
Maybe. I haven't decided how to do that part. I'm leaning toward cutting the hood along the "v" and just raising the center to cowl it. Anybody know good body guys? Seems all the ones I knew aren't in the business anymore.

Officially has a hood! Woot!
