Hi,
I'm looking to get this swap done (not by me)... I have to see how much it will cost me. What are the parts that I will need to buy. Reading some info on it it seem that people have different opinions.

I have found a 96 3.4L at a low price for my 93 Truck (manual).

I know I'll need :
Engine
ECU
Wiring Harness

What else should I add...

I have read ...
Flywheel
Clutch

I read that putting downy headers is a good idea to simlpy stuff...!?

What are the differences between years of the 3.4L. Will it be easier to convert if I get an older model (ex: 1996) ??

Do you think the 350 swap would be cheaper/easier? Curious, cuz I'd much rather have a big V8...

hmm well I like the idea of sticking with Toyota. And that the motor is cheaper on gas then the 3L.

It's my everyday car to go to work. I just bought the 96 3.4L

Let's see how hard it will be to find the rest of the stuff.

Well, it really all depends on what set up you're going to be using. You can get a long block 350 and like a turbo 350 for about $2200. Then of course you'll need a t-case which I don't know a round-a-bout price on, probably around $400 used. Then of course, a carb setup is cheapest, you can buy the engine mounts pre-fabbed, so no guess work is involved there which is a huge plus. After the bodylift, engine mounts, engine, trans, and t-case, if you do the work yourself, you're probably lookin at around $2500-$3000. It probably ain't gonna get much cheaper than that, unless you've gotta good hook-up. It's a much simpler setup, but at the same time you're gonna spend just as much and do just as much if not more work. You'll have more power though, so that's a factor to consider. You can get 1 of those long block 350's from any Chevy dealer for around $1500.

can you plug a 97 harness into a 96 ECU???
You should be able to, if it's the same ECM as in manual or auto trans...

That's 1 of the main reasons, plus financial reasons, that I gave up on the 3.4 swap. It's a bitch to find a harness. If I were you, I'd call somewhere like TAP Recycling, they're a pain in the ass, but they've gotta good selection of parts. Whatever you do, don't use a place called Toyota Truck Parts out of Rancho Cordova, Ca. They screwed me outta $400 and I've yet to see a refund. Good luck, Wes

well, I could be wrong, but I think the only difference is the extra o2 sensor. I could be wrong though. Ask Gadget, I'm sure he knows.

no shit? that's for the entire engine harness? I recieved figures here around Mississippi that it would be about $1500. That's a shitload cheaper than what I was told.

hehe I hope the guy was not mistaken. I said the wiring harness for the engine.

I found one in a scrap yard in Quebec and it's 260 CAN $. But it's a 95. I didn't know they made 3.4L in 95 !?!?

I got that answer from a scrap yard :
95 is a competely different vehicle engine and harness

interchange is one year only on the harness,engine code is 5vsfe,please call me toll free @

1-866-869-9007



What does this mean... interchange is one year. Because he said he had a 95 harness.
