New dual VVT-i V6 in FJ and 4Runner...

I Just drove a brand new 2010 FJ Cruiser automatic 4x4 with the new Dual VVT-i V6 (also in the new 4runner) 258HP, I can't say it was a huge difference over the old 4.0L (which I have in my Tacoma, and I have driven in FJ's as well) it was smoother, valve tick has not as noticeable. But the power hardly felt any different. Im sure this V6 will show p in the next gen Tacoma and will be a welcome power plant. Not sure why they don't put it in now?

I've got it in my 4Runner now and it's 270hp and 278lb ft of torque. I notice it considerably when going up a hill. Where the FJ would kick down a gear the 4Runner effortlessly maintains.

You will notice a difference when you change the oil though!

yeah i drove the 2010 T4R SR5 and it was smoother and quieter. But it don't fell much faster than the tacomas. But i would love it if it was in the tacoma. Engine tick in ours are annoying but i got over it.

My gf has a 2010 FJ. I was trying to be the handy boyfriend and offered to change her oil, thinking I could save her money from taking it to a dealership.

1st thing is that it requires 0w-20, that is $7/quart x6

2nd thing I found out was that it has a f#$%#cartridge filter behind the damn skid plate AND Toyota has a special tool made just to remove the housing. I had to take a hammer and punch to take it off. (don't tell her that though). The filter was like $10 too.

So long story short, it was a 2 hour $52 oil change. I told her to take it to the stealership next time, they only charged $45.

well I speculate its because the new tacoma will have a brand new engine and why update right before they do the redesign? But that's a different thread...
