Hey, Just got my 3.4 for my 90 runner the other day. Going to be taking out the 3.0 next week. I just wanted to make sure that I have all the bases covered. I know I need the ECU and engine wiring harness, but is there anthing else? Has anyone done this?
How much on the 3.0 will switch over?
I was told that the motor mounts match, but I will believe it when I see it. Also the AT in my 90 will hook right up. I hope so.
I also was told that there may be a clearance problem due to higher intake on 3.4. Is this true? I was thinking of putting a 2" BL anyway.
Thanks for any info! <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

NO SC. If the funds are there, might put some headers on it before sticking it in. Probally be it for now. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Is blowing out a rod bearing a problem with 3.0s. I am rebuilding my 3.0 because of the samething. I wanted a 3.4 but had no money to do the swap. Lucky bastard.

Keep us informed as I too am curious how this conversion works out. I wonder if it would be cheaper/easier to punch out and rebuild a 3.0 to 3.4 than swap in a late model 3.4. The main difference I see is the fuel injection system. Best of luck.:D

I price rebuilding mine and boreing it out then adding extras! It just seems that I would be better off going with 3.4. I found a lot of them for around $1700. w/80,000 miles on them. But, just happen to run across this one.:D Fuel injection should be fine with puter swap out. Which is next buy w/wireing harness.
I just hope my injectors are still good. They look it, but you never know. I might have to find another throttle body or at least the spring mech. on it. It's looks a little sad.:(
Yes I will put picks up as this goes. 3.0 is suppose to come out this weekend, but that could change to next weekend.
