The new 4Runner 4.0L is Dual VVT-i. It gives a little more HP and Torque. Essentially, is is able to control intake and exhaust, whereas the Single VVT-i is only intake.

For the record as well, the 4Runners which have the 1GR w/single VVTi, are different in one area. I cannot remember the years, in which the 1GR was first introduced into the 4Runner, so someone please add.

Any way, that T4R 1GR has a different intake cam actuator, than the intake cam actuator on the '05 + Tacoma with a 1GR.

Here is a pic of the difference.



The one on the right, with the burnt oil is out of the 4Runner (T4R). Left is an '06 Tacoma.

The sensors used to read the pick-up on each is different, so if for some odd reason you have to do an engine swap, you MUST SWAP the intake cam gears over as well.

A lengthy process as well. I have pics of that if wanted, also.

The difference in the VVTi actuators is the year of the engines.

2003-2004 had the VVTi actuators on the right in the picture above.

All the 1GRs from 2005+ use the VVTi actuator on the left.
