    They arent cheap. Does it have the 3.0 or the 3.4? I imagine you have the 3.0. Not a cheap engine.

    check the local salvage yards. i get a lot of my car parts from the salvage yards. as long as its complete and they have it stored somewhere where it doesnt get wet you should be ok.

    The 3.0's are not cheap, a few years back I bought one from a salvage yard for a 95 4runner, it was very hard to find & I paid $1250 for it with just under 100k miles on it. A quality reman motor will cost you just north of $2000. If you can install it yourself to avoid paying labor, it might still be worth the money as long as the rest of the 4runner is in really good shape.

    It's been done a bunch of times. You can find info on Yotatech. Yea you would have to swap the wiring harness & computer.
