4 Cyl. in place of v6

Hi all..
I have 94 toyota pickup with V6 that has a head problem and I decided to get an engine for it. My question is these old v6 are not that reliable (at least that's what I heard) so I was thinking if I could put the 22re that I know it's very good engine. But I'll be towing trailers occationally for my motorcycles. I was wondering if this is possible...

Any suggestions will be greatly appriciated..
thanks..

With money and time you can do it. Yes the 3.0 is know to blow head gaskets but think there was a fix for it. I'm not too sure.

Smartass Response:
The Fix = Replace with new Head Gasket.



Civil Response:
Might have to torque the head bolts a little more.

Lol. Nah I meant that there might be a legitimate fix for it not just a head gasket replacement.

I have a 4banger and it pulls my 19' fishing boat out the water and down the highway at 70mph fine. My truck is a 5 speed however and the gears are a better ratio then an automatic. Not sure what kind of tranny you had but depending on how big your trailer is you should be fine

True the old 2.4L engines only put out around 125hp tops. Maybe you should go v6 or better yet try to get a crate 2tr

(new engine) 2TR-FE = 159HP @ 5200 RPM and 280lb-ft @ 3800 torque

22R-E 112hp and 142lb-ft

2TR-FE 159hp and 180lb-ft
