    I'm looking for recommendations for remanufactured engines... Need a long block for my '95 Tacoma V6 3.4. The head gasket went on mine (for the 2nd time) after only 310,000 miles : )

    If anyone has any experience with a reputable source I would appreciate hearing about it.

    Thanks!

    Bob

    back in the rice rocket days, we would pick up motors from Japan via K Watanabe in So Cal...

    never had a problem when doing motor swaps...

    S and J engines. I got mine from my buddy DJ at Baxter Auto Parts in Beaverton. Ask for him if you go that way.

    S and J has a legit website. Check it out: https://www.sandjengines.com/

    That's funny you're in Wilsonville. Small world. I got my 22RE long block from them. Comes with a 7 year, 100,000 mile warranty. Prices are pretty reasonable too.

    Get back up to snuff cuz it wasn't maintained. I got xm radio in it.
    A friend of mine told me about Jasper, are they a good outfit for a reman or rebuilt engine?
