I am pulling my 3.0 VZE motor because of spun bearing and numerous other issues. Searching Craigs list there are so many good 3.4 5VZE's for sale, no 3.0 3VZE's in my area. My first choice is to replace with a 3.4. Yes, I see a lot on the internet about this with 4Runners, but has anyone actually done it themselves on a Toyota motor home? I think I am most worried about the wiring issues. I also see suggestions about Buick 3.8 for replacement. I am not really looking for more power, just reliability. I am not interested in a shop doing it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Ed
Hi , I just purchased a 1987 Toyota Dolphin with a Chevy Camaro v8 engine in it. It has 30, 000 miles on it. I know * nothing* about engines other than what this guy told me..so I am asking here to see if anyone has thoughts or advice about this. He said I could drive it around a few days and if I didnt like it..could return it. I didnt want to turn it down as it seemed like a great deal that i should snatch up..so I went for it. Can anyone tell me about this engine and weather this sounds like a good swap for the original Toyota 22 ?
