    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

    One-at-this-price stripper. Bought new 32yrs ago, a $13K leftover. Added Detroit TruTrac and 1”rear spring spacer. Factory AC kit and roof rack bought at dealer cost at time of purchase, still blows ice cold 32yrs later. 2022 AG ORP all stock.
    Better at what?
