Search out google, and see if there are some good aftermarket ones out there. If your gonna be elbow deep in the engine, you may as well get the best.

http://www.lcengineering.com/ good quality high price. They say 4 cyl but I know they have parts for the 5vz-fe
engnbldr is also very good. Don't know if the do the 3.4 though. Those will be your best quality. the engnbldr guy is a great honest guy. Have heard nothing but good things about him.
