    I have a 1994 4runner with the 3.0 v6 motor. I known they are know for their head gaskets problems. And the exhaust valves seats are known to have problems as well. But I was wondering what some good engine swaps that will work with the motor mounts, bellhousing and all of the other fun stuff. I have thought about a 2jz or just the 4 cylinder engine from the same year 4runner. Anything will help thank you.

    The 3.4 from a 3rd gen is a really popular swap, the motor mounts are the same I'm told.

    Exhaust needs a crossover pipe, but the rest is supposed to be fairly straight forward.

    Honestly though the 3.0 isn't a horrible motor, probably better than the 22re
