Tacoma 4.0 vs Tundra 4.0

Assuming the 4.0 in both the tundra and the tacoma are the same short block,

Why does the tundra version have 35 more hp?

So are head swaps an option to add power?

No intentions of doing this... Just curious

Different head with dual VVT-i instead of single and the block is different. No you cannot swap heads.

A member recently transplanted a Tacoma engine into his Tundra, so it might be possible, but the intake and exhaust are different, air switching valves, and other parts of the emissions system.

And since rated HP is RWHP, you may still not gain the full 35... the heads may or may not be responsible for the difference. Could also be in the trans, gearing... or even the ECU programming.

I would swap in the dual VVT-i 4.0 into my truck. I would need the FJ ECU and it should work. But then again I would probably need the whole harness.

Did you see this:

Swapped a Tacoma V6 into his Tundra.
I didn't notice what he did for engine control... may have used the Tacoma brain.

Yeah I saw that. I think the 4.0 in the FJ has less emissions crap.
