You might just want to look into getting a used motor with less miles. It costs a fortune to rebuild motors.

Eh yes and no...only thing bad about doing that is you just don't know how abused the motor was, highway miles? Or city, how often it was serviced etc...
I won't be only rebuilding it, it's getting forged rods and pistons and the whole works!
Plan on turbocharging it

Kind of a waste if ya ask me. That thing will still have the cross hatches in the cylinder walls when u pull the head. Garuntee it.

Gotcha. If you are going to use forced induction then definately rebuild it. Just go through someone you trust or do it all yourself.

Not really high mileage, but older .. 148,000 on our 97 2.7L. Replaced valve cover gasket, clutch master and slave cylinders, exhaust manifold ( cracked), and the starter.

4 cylinder nirvana ?

I've seen several of the old 22R engines go 300K+ and I don't believe it's a rare occurrence. Those things were bulletproof.
The current 3RZ-FE, 2.7Liter seems to be the current reincarnation of that Toyota classic. There's no doubt that the newer engines are more complicated but the solid and simple Toyota DNA is evident. I predict we will routinely see running 2.7 liter engines 15 years from now. The biggest threat to a Toyota 4 cyl. is a stupid owner/driver.

Thumbs up

I agree, I have an 01 2.7 with 209k on it. An older man had it, it was stolen, so I got it as a theft and recovery. It had 187k when I bought it. It is my daily driver and farm truck. So far spark plugs,tires,and a tailgate latch, oh and the funky adapter for the trailer lights is all it has needed. This is my first 2.7, all I have ever had was 22re's well one v-6 but it sucked. Pulled a hay baler with it yesterday.

I've got a 88 22RE with 210K on it. But I did have to put a timing chain kit in it recently. My 3RZ is low mileage, it's only got 136K.

206k on my current truck, have had it for only a day haha, engine runs amazingly, but it feels like she kinda rolls over the road somewhat...not nearly as bad as a death wobble, but close, i'm assuming ball joints or something needs replaced

Not to stray too far off topic, but if you experience "death wobble", Trust me -you'll know it! Toyota's are far less prone to the dreaded death wobble as compared vehicle designs that utilize a solid front axle, like Jeeps and Dodge pick-ups, etc.
Death Wobble is an oscillation that sets in (often after hitting a bump in the road at speed) and shakes the front end violently. It's often caused by a bad track rod, worn steering components and other front end problems. The Toyota front suspension is actually a pretty good design. some parts wear faster than others but it generally works.

The death wobble? Is that like where the truck topples side to side pretty fast? Like a non stop hoping back and fourth? Lol

I have never really been happy with used engines, rebuilding is cheaper and easier in the long run...the last motor I had rebuilt was under $900 complete with pan and valve covers reinstalled, and that was a Dodge 318 with cast iron heads.

Agree - buying a used motor sitting on the floor of a shop is the ultimate example of "Caveat Emptor" [may he beware or buyer beware]

If it's not burning oil and oil pressure is good, there's no need to rebuild it.

My '94 went 225k, I traded it in on an '03 Tundra, and one of the dealer tech's bought my '94.
