? reason for the swap.

3.4l v6 seems like a better option to me. + no inner cooler to mount. Just curious.

Save a tree, eat a beaver.

There are two keys to life, leverage and lubrication. Sometimes you need both.

Because there is no 2nd chances on Pirate!

Don't do it!

Chronic headgasket problems with the 7M unless you want to really work the top of the block, the bottom of the head, and put in a full metal headgasket.

Go read 4RnrRick's 7m swap into his 4runner before you decided if you want to go down this road. (He did it, hated it, yanked it, built another truck with a 2.7L 3R-Z taco motor and loves it!)

The other HUGE negative of the 7M is that it doesn't produce good torque at low RPM. It's a go-fast engine for cars. The power/torque curves are all kinds of wrong for wheeling.

Although, head gasket issues seem common, you only hear about the bad ones. So take with a grain of salt.

keep in mind these are stock motors in the tacos, So I'm guessing he wants more.

Is this still a ifs truck?
What motor's in it and does it run?
What do you intead to do with the truck?

I'd have a hard time justifying the swap for 20-30 more horse. I would recommend a supercharger for the 3.4 then.
