    i have searched around and cant really find any thing on this.

    My Question.

    Is the new 2.7 ( 2TR-FE ) as good as the old 2.7 ( 22r )

    Just want to know what you guys think.

    By the way mine is Stick and it has been great so far.

    Not as good, but still very good.

    Yep 2TR-FE has a bit more power but i think that the weight of the body style of the 2nd Gen offsets any gain. my big thing is will the new 2.7 ( 2TR-FE ) hold up as good and keep on trucken after 300,000 miles like a ton of the old 2.7 ( 22r )

    It's a Toyota 4-cyl people.

    If you don't think it's reliable enough, please show me a better option you can currently buy new?

    Interesting you should mention. My daily driver is a 1zz-fe 1.8L Matrix, currently with 177k (as in 177,000 miles...we use real units down here...I guess you 'nucks would call it 285,000km) on the clock and NO issues. NONE. Just regular maintenance. And I flogged the fuck out of that car before I got the truck. It's seen a lot of duty out of its class.

    current Tacoma engines have a timing chain, not belt.

    Non-interference means that the valves and cylinder have enough clearance from one another in the cylinder chamber that they will not impact one another and damage one another in the event that the engine's timing is incorrect.

    IIRC both current Tacoma engines are interference engines...I know the 1GR six cylinder is. That's just the one of the many prices of squeezing more power and fuel economy out of the same displacement.

    It's probably going to outlast the other parts of the truck. You know what worries me down the line? That complicated motor/servovalve thingy for the brakes that controls ABS, VSC, TRAC...

    Neg. There is no fault on the mfr when safety-related components fail due to end of life. When a brake control component goes out of tolerance, the ABS and other warning lights come on. If you ignore the light, keep driving, then crash and sue, Toyota can claim contributory negligence on your end.
