    Ok great bro. Thanks. So did they stop producing the 3.4 all together? Could you go and buy a car with a 3.4 in it? And are parts pretty cheap??

    I cant remember exactly when the 3.4 was produced but i think it came out in 96? But it continued up till 2004 but in 2003 toyota came out with the 4.0L V6 that produces 236-245 HP for the 4Runner and Tundra but when the new Tacoma bodystyle came out in 05 the put the 4.0L V6 in them

    As for parts, i would say they are not so cheap cause some people stop making parts for the 3.4, so some parts may be a little expensive, but then again there are people that are continuing to make parts for the 3.4L V6
    But one mod for the engine that many people have done here on TW for their 3.4L V6 is the deckplate mod. You put a deckplate on the stock airbox and it makes the stock intake act like a cold air intake and it gives you quite a bit of boost in HP and the great thing about it is you can close up the hole in a matter of seconds making it a stock air intake again

    I had a 95 Tacoma with the 4 cyl., 5 speed. Nice truck but it lacked power on hills and when towing my small boat. Traded it in for a 97 with the 3.4 and 5 speed. That was the perfect combination as far as I'm concerned. Plenty of smooth power, good gas mileage (about 24 MPG) and nothing ever went wrong with it (ever) until the frame rusted. I'd get the 6 cyl. but be sure to get the frame inspected as Janster said. The road salt in the Northeast killed some really nice trucks.

    I haven't had mine for very long... so far so good, with the exception of a heater motor and o2 sensor...
