    ...too much shit to list.
    5 grand is a pipe dream if you let Toyota do it.

    I just went through this excercise with my 5vz v6.

    Toyota does not sell a long block. They sell only the short block. You can buy the head(s) as well, but they are stripped...nothing in the heads at all. All said and done the quote from Toyota for the v6 was almost $14,000 (yes that's the correct number of 0's).

    The 4 banger would obviously be cheaper considering you'll only have half the heads and head parts. The short block for the 4 banger alone is $1800 online. List on it is $2300.

    there should still be plenty of life left in that 4-banger with only 158k. i'm not sure why you would necessary need a brand new engine, but you could always get yours rebuilt. my brother just got his rebuilt after ~245k miles. he had a friend help out with the labor, but he spent around ~$1200 total. i've seen rebuilt long blocks for around $1800 with a core exchange.

    Where do you live? You can get it completely rebuilt out here in southern WA from $1300-1500 depending on what you want done. I wouldn't pay a bit over $1600. This is with taking your old engine out and getting a rebuilt motor placed in it. But to be honest bro you can get 200,000+ outta that thing easy. Maybe you just need a tune up? Why do you need or want a new one?

    a buddy of mine and I tore down his 96. I took a micrometer to everything and checked his bore of the cylinder walls on the head. All was good. We rebuilt the heads and replaced the gaskets at the same time. Replaced the cam's and hooked up the rockers. In the end it cost about $700 total and his shits good to go for another 100K. This was after 240K on the motor. I wouldn't worry about much.

    New to me but certinly not new
    Don't even now why you would be thinking about it. The 4 bangers are know to last practically forever. Heck I just bought a 6 with 260,xxx miles and filled it for the third time yesterday and it's still getting 23.2mpg It's got a few leaks but heck it's got 260k miles. And i'm not thinking of rebuilding or replacing yet. But I guess if you have money to burn why not.
