Are the engines from the 97 4Runner easily replaceable with the 2002 ?

    Hey guys my 97 4Runner 3.4L engine went out just wondering if the motor from a 2002 4Runner with a trd supercharger on it would work good and if I’m I’m gonna have to replace all the sensors on them or not

    Then they should be the same thing. Make sure to keep your engine until the swap is complete and the new one is running in case you need anything off of it.
