    I took a test drive for a modded Impreza wrx. Got it to 70 with the guy. and during the whole drive i said "something doesn't sound right man, I'm hearing a metal rasp" he says "yea it does that, no worries" needless to say the turbo let go i turned it off and he had a very confused look on him. Needless to say I'm sticking clear of Subarus.

    They wanted out of that thing pretty quickly huh? Can't be a year old yet? Just for full context, what did they buy and what was purchase price?

    Even though folks get the 3 yr warranty when buying Rover, most owners still get too frustrated that their vehicle is needing warranty work as often as they do.

    Was actually going to tag you with that SUV.

    They're repeat customers of ours, a couple that are always happy to see me and talk cars.

    It's an '18 and it was hardly driven as they have a ranch; traded in for a JL Rubicon.

    The husband has 2 FJ45's, and is on the lookout for an old Scout to restore.

    One of his FJ's is all upfitted with an exocage, locked, etc. The other is all stock as he was showing me pics.

    They figured the new Jeep will be much more comfortable since only his kids are into rock crawling and all that stuff; they go to King of the Hammers and other off road events with their tricked out toys.

    Neither of those. I've never done or needed to do brushes or even bearings on any of the Densos I've rebuilt. I mean you can, but I'd just leave those parts as they came from factory. I'm not sure if there is a Toyota specific part numbered kit for the parts either. Quick search on Amazon got me this:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0031HL09E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_TcM5Eb6HFGDFX
    There may be others, this was simply the first one I found that contained the correct contacts. Looks to come with additional contacts but you won't need them on that 3.4 starter.

    Looks like it might be this one, same vendor but the fitment guide thing says this one fits, might be the length of the plunger is the difference

    If it's this second one, I already have that. Got that one for the 4runner starter and it wasn't correct for that. I'll have to find it, pull the Taco starter and see if it will work.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that's right your 4runner has the 4.7 V8 with the starter in the valley of the 'V'. So I think that one does require a different 'kit' than the 3.4L starter. I rebuilt that one on my 4.7L as well.
