Love my Tacoma, but the motor has close to 250,000 miles on it and it is somewhat gutless on hills and where I live is mostly hills.
A friend of mine has an early 90's 4Runner with the 6cyl motor, and the previous owner to him had the bad head gasket and somehow ended up with a brand new engine from Toyota, and it apparently has well under 100,000 Km (in up in Canada) on it now, possibly as low as 60,000 km (less than 40,000 miles).
How well do these motors interchange, it being a previous generation motor.
Also, the 4Runner has been sitting for several years. Would I possibly be dealing with a can of worms?
