No, the 93 is a 1fzfe not the FJ62 motor. Just different fuel management between the 93 and 97.

As to why the curve was that rough, can't recall when we did it, but it might have something to do with tuning at that stage. That was dyno tuning before we did the final tuning on the road.

I don't want to hijack Nay's thread, but wanted to show that the belief huge 1FZ torque might be ok compared to a 22R, but not really when comparing to a newer generation v8. The i6 torque curve might be flatter, but the v8 has more torque over the whole rpm range.

Just looked it up and realized that the FJ62 motor ended in 92. Sorry for the misinformation.

From the first graph, it's interesting that the SC nets only about 20-30hp at the wheels.

I don't think you need the SC for wheeling. But it's awesome in the mountains. The 80 finally drives like other vehicles.

The guy that was trying to sell his wrecked 4Runner on the forum sent me an email with this info in case you're interested:

"I also have a 4.3L Chevy Vortec on an engine stand that needs to go. Engine came out of a Blazer with < 2000 miles on it. Engine w/ all accessories, shop manuals, all for $1300".

If I was going to the trouble of a GM swap I would go with a V6 or V8. Probably an easier swap since the V6/8's are a more common swap and take up less room.

Dee's truck has the same motor as Marco's (5.3 vortec) with an auto trans. It starts instantly and runs smooth as silk. Even with 42" tires and 4.88 axles in high range it has no issue with torque with the automatic. Off road it is awesome.

It's cool, good discussion. I'm not committed to anything and perspective never hurts. Assuming I can keep cooling under control, the SC probably makes good sense for me as time is at such a premium and these things can always be sold at a future swap point.

Well, I just got back from buying eight 4-packs of ski lessons (2 per kid), season kid gear rentals, helmets, more outerwear for those growing weeds...

...which means I am going to be driving to the the slopes with a 1ZFE this year...

Thanks for all the inputs, I'll probably revisit all of this in the not too distant future.

That is a seriously good deal if nothing is wrong with it
