    I am looking at a $1000 repair cost for my truck, 1995 Tacoma, so I am exploring the option of buying a new/used engine and having it put in.

    Does anyone have some good resources for purchasing engines? Also, do I have to buy specifically a 1995 Tacoma engine or is there a year range that I can look at?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    1995.5-2004 is the 1st gen model year so I assume the engines would be able to be swaped out.

    But I think the ECUs and definitely the MAF will be different from 95.5-97 to those from 98-04.

    I paid I think 1100-1200 for a 2.7 8 port from a salvage yard. For about the same cost I could have gotten a rebuild off of ebay.
