no prob bro, happy to help ya out. But compared to my 4.0 its a different feel. My neighborhood is built on a ridge and out entrance is on a steep hill so when leaving the entrance and going up the hill you will need to put a good amount of gas down to get going quickly, i mean it wont throw your head back when doing that but if you want to get going on a hill you will have to put the hammer down but i wouldnt recommend flooring it, putting the hammer down or hitting the gas pretty hard will put you in your seat pretty good. If you want to get an extra boost out of the 3.4 there is a ECT button which will change the way the transmission shifts i think, but when pushing that you will fell a great change in pick up and HP, but i would not recommend having that on all the time, it will use up more gas and its unnecessary to make the engine work harder when its got plenty of power. the 3.4L V6 has i think 183 HP, i know that doesnt sound much but it feels like more than that when behind the wheel. My brother with the 4Runner like i said, is rough on his car, and everytime he visits from Charleston i always asks how the 4Runner is running and he says great. plus when hes traveling a long way back to Charleston he sometimes does 100+ and he says it has no problem reaching that speed. I show you a video or my brothers Tacoma with the 3.4L with a CAI and catback exhaust. just so you can get a feel of what your going to get but minus the upgraded parts
