As far as I'm concerned, you're wanting the answer to many different questions. Performance-wise, the 3.4 V6 is going to be faster, put out 40 more horses, and have more ft. lbs. of torque. If reliability is what you're after, then go with the 2.7L inline 4 cyl. If you know anything about Toyota 4 cyl engines, you know that the 2.7L found in today's Tacoma's from '95.5 to '07 is the evolution of the 22R series, which anyone knows was a legendary high-mileage engine. For example, one characteristic of the 2.7L is a dual timing chain set, and as for the 3.4L V6, a timing belt that needs to be replaced at 90k. For reliability, I personally wouldn't trade my 2.7L for any other Toyota engine period! Chris (Valkrie) can vouche for the same thing. I'd say go with the 2.7L. You'll be glad you did! :D

I've had much better luck and gas mileage from the 2.7 than the 3.4,don't get me wrong the 3.4 is a good engine,but IMO not as Reliable as the 2.7.

which is the better engine? as far as depedability, power, upgrades, gas. ohh yeah and im looin to get a 5 speed so wich engine is better with a manuel tranny???
If you plan on modding the truck with anything taller than a 33" tire then don't bother with the 2.7. The gas mileage goes down to about what the v6 gets with about half the power...or so it seems...

i might just buy one and then trade it in if i dont like it ill just try the 3.4 litre first because i heard they have a better resell value...Well i was also wondering i saw a picture of a twin turbo and a super charger on the 2.7 and i clicked the link oin the post and i read the article and it said sumthin like 800 horses. is that true??

sure, you can build a 4-banger to pump out nearly 1000hp but it will cost major bucks...probably in the $50k range if done right.

the SC for the 2.7 Taco motor will run around $3500 with fuel mods, etc. and gain 50hp.

Why do that when you get the 3.4 for like 1k more retail. Then pump that fucker up with the SC and the fuel. Bottom line. If you want more power than go 3.4. I think it is stupid to drop $ to make the 2.7 the same power as the 3.4.

That's a no-brainer, but apparently the original poster is more concerned with horsepower and speed. Maybe he should go to custom tacos and race his truck over there? :rolleyes:
