    does anyone know if theyre increasing the power of the 4.0 for 2010? i remember a thread a few months ago saying they were going to increase it for the FJ and 4runner i think, just wanted to know if they were going to do it for the tacoma as well

    I haven't heard much about the motor power increases in the Tacoma, but I have heard of them in the FJ's and 4runners.

    EDIT: Disregard this post.

    I would think since it is the same engines that they it would be the same. I can't see them making 2 different engines. Keep in mind that as of now they rate the FJ and Tacoma engines with different power ratings. One with premium fuel (the FJ) and one on regular(Tacoma). Maybe the same thing for 2010

    One of the threads on here has a pic of the new cup holders. They are not larger. There is an insert that goes where the adjustable thing is now... it just holds two cups.

    The FJ gets the same engine, computer, etc., as the Tacoma, so I would guess the Tacoma would have the higher output as well.....I guess we'll all find out soon enough. :)

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    While we are on the subject of engines, the salesperson who sold me my truck said that my engine was made by Yamaha corp. in Japan. Do any of you guys know if this is true?

    No. Its a Toyota engine. Yamaha may have helped enginer the throttle by wire, but thats all.

    The engines are not the same... well, basically they are but they already have different outputs, so they are different. I'm not sure exactly what the differences are, but I would say we'll soon (couple years) see a boost to the Tacoma's output to keep up with other midsize trucks.

    The difference is that the FJ is rated useing 91 octain fuel, and the Tacoma is rated useing 87 octain fuel. No difference in the engines. Which is why they are both a "1GR-FE"

    I read somewhere that the 2005 4.0 engine was rated at 245 hp and 282 lb-ft torque. Since the 87/91 octane discrepancy only accounts for three horsepower (236 to 239), I am curious what made the 2005 engine different.

    Different testing method. First, even though there is only a 3 hp gain with the 91, there is a 12 lbs -ft. diff in torque. Very noticable.
    The new method of testing an engines output requires the manufacture to use all the components as they will be in the engine bay. Full exhaust, intake, all accesorise, etc. The old method required them to have all the accesorise, but (for example) have the A/C off, and use a Lab exhaust and intake.

    I think maybe it's something related to double VVT-I that make the difference. Check the tundra. They now have a 4.6L V8 with that in place of the old 4.7L!

    Yes. The new engine will have variable valve timing on both exhaust AND intake valves, as opposed to only the intake on the 1GR engine.

    I work for a nissan dealership, and we stole a parts man from toyota. He stated the reason why the fj and the 4 runner are getting an increase in the motor size is bec the 4 runner and the fj are made in japan while the tacoma is made in the usa. For some reason the Japaneses gets better technology before us.. For those who have a fj, look at the first letter or number of the vin. If it says 1 means made in usa, if it says j means made in japan. same for the 4 runner

    The FJ engine is still 4.0. And the new 4.6 is a little smaller than the 4.7 ;)

    Right the reason for the increase of hp has to do with the vvti or something like that.l a new rocker arm and vvti or something new is supposed to increase the hp while the tacoma will not be getting the same upgrade that the fj and 4 runner gets.

    Hey, maybe by the time Tacoma gets the upgraded engine, plus a couple of years, I will be wanting to buy a V6 4x4 quad cab. Say, about eight years from now. If they revamp the Tacoma in 2012-2014, and I decide to buy a new one when my current one is nine years old...yeah, that would work. :D
