That would be great I would atleast like to look at it. did you do the swap yourself??

I think that's the route i'm going to go the small block seems like alot of work and I'm not a master mechanic plus if the 3.4 is putting out that much power I think thats plenty. I really just want enough power to climb up I70 going faster than 35. I'd like to be able to use this as my snowboarding vehicle.

Does anyone know if i will see a increase in fuel economy with the 3.4 I'm getting around 16 with 36in swampers on now.

From someone that had a Chevy 4.3L in my Toyota Crawler, I highly suggest you go with the 3.4.. Had constant ECU problems(ie. Fuel Tank signaling)...Stay with all Toyota..

The 3.4 may give you a little better mileage. It isn't going to be amazing. I get 18-19 summer time city, and 20-21 hwy summer, with a 3.4 supercharged in a 99 runner, which is a lot heavier than your truck. However, maintenance and mileage play a large part in that. Mine only has 230 on the clock, and has been babied by an old lady most of its life. Oil and other preventative stuff has been done like clockwork, so the motor is tight and runs very well.

What you find for a swap may not be as good, and I've heard of 3.4's doing no better than 16 even in lightweight trucks.

That said, the swap will be easy, and has been done 1 billion times, so there is a lot of help and aftermarket support out there.

We've been getting crazy good mileage in our Tacoma, 107,000 on it now, 5 speed. Totally stock other than those frame plates you welded on Isaac. Running 22~23 MPG on the highway if I keep the speed reasonable. I expect when I put the camper on it will drop a little. It's running the stock 265/70R16 size in a street tire, too. Best I ever do in the old truck is 18ish most of the time and it's got no power at all. Be interesting to see how it does when the WilderNest comes off and some of the stuff gets moved over. I'm sure transferring 500 lbs from will drop the mileage in the Taco and increase it in the Hilux.

thanks for all the help i think im set on that just have to wait for a couple more paychecks to come in and find some time to do it. From what I've read its best to have a donor vehicle so you use the same parts? I feel like as long as i get the ecu, harness, and engine from the same vehicle i should be good?
