Another 3.4 swap for yotaman!

Well I'm officially in the motor swap biz.

The victim is a 1994 4Runner with a tired 3.0. I'm swapping a 30,000 mile 2004 3.4 out of an automatic single cab Tundra.

I'm doing this swap for an Atlanta local. He'll be around to say whats up later.

What's better than a Tundra?

A Tundra with some kick ass stuff in the bed.

The 3.4 for this swap.


An extra FJ80 axle. No e-locker this time. This will be the axle that will finally make it under my beater.

Lots of guys have been spreading rumors about automatic 3.4 motors not having the prevision for a pilot bearing. THAT IS FALSE! At least it is for all the automatic motors I've seen.

This picture is of a 2004 3.4 out of an automatic truck. Looks to me like that's a hole for a pilot bearing.

Shoot me a PM, email or give me a call and we'll talk if you're serious. My Cell is: 678-858-1867

I'll be doing conversion harness's for 3.4's and 2.7's soon and if you guys find me an extra cab truck to swap a 4.0 in I'll be offering stuff for that conversion to.

is that your tundra, if so does it have the 4.7? per our pm's you can probably see where I am going with this...any chance you could take some rough measurements on it under the hood and compare it to your 1996?

Thanks, knowing if it will physically fit will save me a long drive to go get the measurements myself.

I'll keep an eye out for you.

How does a 1993 extra cab 2wd with a 3.4 in it sound. I found a decent extra cab 2wd that has a knocking motor. I'd rather have a 4wd but I can't find one for a decent price.

True, I would just like to keep it low and on 31's or so max. That's my reason for looking for a stock 4x4. I think I'm going to get this truck anyways. I just need a truck DD. I can get the truck and swap a 80,000 3.4 in it for around $2500.00 not too bad for a DD.

EDIT: I guess I could be really retarded and swap a push pull steering system if I did a SFA.

seems normal if you're not going extreme with the susp/wheel/tire combo

Got some wiring done today. I was planning to start pulling the 3.0 but it rained all day.

<hi jack on>
I've been doing some research. I think I can easily do a SAS on a 2wd frame and keep it close to stock height even with crossover steering. I guess you guys can look forward to another build thread.

I'm sure it'll fit easier than it'll fit in the older trucks. Lots of 4.0's have been swapped into older trucks.

My mom has had the Tundra. I'm getting it tonight. I'll take some measurements tomorrow.

Oh ok, don't go out of your way if the truck isn't there. I can do it myself eventually or get the guy with the motor to take some measurements for me.

I did a tune up on my womans (Lori) 3.4 swapped truck today. Man what a difference. I need to replace one of the O2 senors also.

I just love this motor.

I'll hopefully be rebuilding a 22RE here soon also.

Greg, Ill be a test dummy on a 4.0 wiring harness for ya. Ive decided to swap one in the 4runner in the next few months and Im not a fan of electrical crap.

But, Im still gonna show some love to my 3.4, itll be goin in a tube chassis. 221k on the clock and Im still beating the piss out of her so I just want to see how far it can go with this kinda treatment. It may be charged before it goes in too.

And you wouldnt happen to know of a good lead on one would ya, 1uz that is.

well its not right now. It will be mine, Im either gonna pick up a large load of 1.75" dom and build my own or Im gonna buy a bare chassis and build from there.

Not having experience on one Id kinda like to buy a bare chassis. Id just hate to put 100 hrs into one to find out seats and the tranny wont fit or something stupid like that.

On the other hand, Id like to be able to say I built it from scratch.

Well I think I got the wiring all figured out. The Tundra 3.4's have more wiring and is different than Tacoma/4Runners so it's taken longer to trace everything.
