Meh, the 1GR blower from TRD is more hype than it's worth IMO. Unless you are hitting 3k+ rpms everytime, you don't get your moneys worth out of it.

What's the highest mileage 4.0 anyone knows of? Obviously I'm impressed with 300,000+ miles out of a 3.4, just hoping to see the same out of my 4.0 someday! I could give a shit less about HP, I bought a Toyota truck for longevity.

I've owned both. I like the current 4.0 but it would be interesting to see if the longevity of the 4.0 will match or surpass the 3.4. Only time will tell I guess.

What calculation do you do to get those numbers? I thought a lower number was better as in less pounds per horsepower. Am I doing that wrong?

I didn't do any reasearch on the models but when power to weight ratio is discussed it is usually how many pounds to each horsepower. So if a 2004 4x4 really is 19.5 that means it has 19.5 pounds per each horsepower. So if a 2013 has a 17.9 ratio it would be better/more powerful because it has less pounds per HP to move.

Thanks for confirming that, mach.

Just for reference, a 2.7 standard cab 2X4 is a measly 22.32.

Either your co-worker is driving a 5spd and cannot drive, or he's running just the SC with no supporting modifications. I have shat on many brah's with their 4.0's. I did fall victim to a SC'd XRunner though... Feelsbadman.jpeg

IMO, the 4.0 is the STRONGER motor. The 3.4 is the more durable (until the 4.0 proves us wrong).
