    Is the 4000cc 24 valve DOHC EFI motor in my 06 DoubleCab a non-interference or interference motor?

    In other words, if my timing belt breaks, will it just be a tow and belt replacement or will it be a guts out rebuild?

    Its a timing chain so you're fine.

    I think it is interference though.

    OK...stupid question #3---based on my experience with motorcycles---will the chain stretch over time and get too sloppy or am I overthinking this?

    Youre over thinking it. The chain is engineered to go at least 250k miles...

    Relax. It's a chain, drive the hell out of it. My Landcruiser had a belt and if it would have broke I would have had a 600# box of scrap metal.[​IMG] YIKES!

    really? I always thought all Toyota gas engines with T belts were non interference.
