JMHO, but why bother with the 2.7L? My GF's V6 2WD 4Runner gets better mileage than my 2WD 2.7L Tacoma double cab!

My Tacoma has the automatic with a 3.73 open differential.

Also, lots of other 2.7L owners have a strange cold start up noise. I also have the same issue and have been trying to figure it out for a couple of years now. It doesn't seem to affect the motor, just annoying.

I guess it is possible. I once bought a brand new Camaro with the Z28 package and a plain Jane body.

Good eye. There are some holes in this

I was just curious about the truck, I'm not dead set on getting a 2.7l. I just thought a found a rare gem and thought I would post it. I'm just looking for TRD tacomas within 2001 - 2004 and came acrossed this one.

True, the actual Ad is wrong on a few details, but the pics and Factory spec sheet seem in line.

As for it being a "big deal" its just very unheard of a 2.7l having a TRD package with a locking Diff straight from the dealership i guess.

Not to hijack this thread, but I do have another thread about my situation:

The noise is sometimes very loud and sometimes just a slight ticking.

According to this PDF, the 3.42 is used in the manuals and 4.10 was used in automatics for the 4cy

v6 has 3.91 for both manual and auto....
my 1997 2.7L 5-speed 4wd has 4.10's


And guys, anything is possible if someone special ordered what they wanted from Toyota. I had a buddy that special ordered a 2.7L 5-speed in a double cab w/ a locker....wish I knew what happened to that truck....that was years ago.

factory 4.0L TRD O/R has 3.73, factory 2.7L has 4.10. 3.42 would be goofy-low on either vehicle, IMO.

This is for 2nd gen however, which may make this moot. Gear ratios for 2nd gen are the same whether it's auto or standard.

So I've just read through all the posts in this thread... Has the jury reached a verdict? What's the call? Engine pics?
