Thumbs up Finally My 5vz swap on 2wd

Hello ToyotaNation, it has been some time since i last been on here. I finally got a great deal on a donor car ( 96 T100 with 289k) and now ready to finally do my 5vz swap. I've been wanting to do this swap for about 10 years now, So i pretty much already got started on removing the motor from the donor truck today and so i am contemplating if i should rebuild the motor or not. I think im going to do a compression check to see if i need to. The motor is in great shape considering the mileage or even if that is the original motor.








-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So Here are my plans ----
Swap the 5vz
Do Routine Maintenance such as gaskets and timing belt
LC Engineering S/C with 2.2 pulley
URD 7th injector
97 ECU to have the motor recognize the S/C
CAI
Mating the Motor behind the 5 speed manual( i have an auto)









So i have a couple of questions for you guys that already did the swap....


1) All i need is the engine harness? or do i need to snag the dash harness as well. I am gonna go with ORS to get the wiring harness.

2) Im about to get rid of the donor truck, Is there anything else i would need to grab from it that i might be forgetting.

What i got so far from the donor truck
- Engine w\ Harness
- Alt, Power steering w\hoses
- Motor mounts
- ECU
- Starter

It may be worth keeping the dash harness.
And the fuel pump.

thanks for the reply, yea i think i may grab the dash harness. I dont think ill need the fuel pump since the 7th injector comes with a fuel pump.

Finally My 5vz swap on 2wd

If your going to supercharge it I would freshen it up. Your going to be putting added pressure on the head gaskets, rings and bearings. If there is a weak link boost will find it.

So i am finally getting into taking apart my truck now, got a lil done today. This weekend im looking to take the engine and tranny out so i can sell it with the t100 to the junk yard. They are going to be giving me 325 for everything, I think that a good deal considering that i only paid 800 for the truck initially, Although i know they will sell at least one of the trannys for that price. I just really want the truck out of my garage for i can clean up the garage, park the wifes car in the garage and start to rebuild the motor or at least just clean it up and start to paint as well as dress it up. Whelp here are the pics of todays adventure. Man its so much easier to disassembly once you have done one already. I disconnect practically everything in few short hours. The next step is just to unbolt the motor mounts as well as tranny, then pull her out.*

Do you guys think 325 is too low of a price to get rid of the truck??

Yea i going to check the compression first to see if that motor is good enough without a rebuild, if not then i will venture onto a full rebuild.

So all last week I've been working my butt off taking parts off the 91 4 runner, I managed to take all the front interior apart with the power mirrors, Locks, and Window harness. At first it was real confusing on which wires to take, i didn't want to cut anything that i needed. This weekend i was able to install the wiring harness and tap that in my Trucks harness. There were a few hiccups and still is but everything is now successfully powered and working. I just need to get a new mirror switch. I was able to swap the seats as well and of course half the bolts dont line up correctly!!! I could have sworn that these seat can swap over directly, but apparently not. I was also able to swap over the Tilt steering wheel as well. That swap was pretty easy and everything bolted in as it should.

I was also able to grab the Speedo w/ Tach from the 4 runner and reset the mileage. Grabbed the center console too and also was thinking about taking the rear heater as well, but i think it would be too much work and it doesn't get that cold here in Texas. And the last thing i took from the vehicle as well was the Front brake calipers, so i could start on polishing them and not have to take the calipers off of my yota just yet.

Well here are some of the pics i promised.....

So this week I started work on the engine. I was able to paint the front timing cover and front main cover. I replaced the timing belt which needed it badly. also replaced the bearings and tensioner, getting the block prep for paint. I also polished some parts as well...hopefully they will match the way I want it. This week I got the clutch assembly this week.








Also just got the calipers back from chrome plating shop. they turned out great I think!

Alrighty so we are back to it.... So i finally removed my brake pedal assembly and replaced with the clutch pedal assembly. Installation i thought was going to be a lil tough, but it actually was a breeze. It also helps as well when you have the right tools.


While we are on the topic of the interior of the truck. I was able to pull up the carpet and get the interior ready to lay sound deadening mat. As you there it litterly no rust or anything, my family kept the truck in good condition.




Now on to the engine....I finally had a weekday off to drop my valve covers and pulleys off to get polished and chromed. Had to take off the intake manifold to get to the valve cover. Got a chance to see how the engine was maintained and so far it still looks like its in great shape. I should get the parts back in about a 3 weeks or so. Once i get everything back, i will start to put all the parts back together and look to purchase the transmission and the lovely S/C. Here are some pics of the engine and such.

Just received a call from the Chrome Plating shop saying that they were all done with the pieces. So after work i rushed over there to pick them up.....Man oh man, these pieces are going to look good on this 5vz.
Also there are two new pulleys as well....2.2 Supercharger pulley and URD crankshaft pulley

Engine looks incredible but is all that chrome going to create a heat problem? Everything chrome seems to retain heat like crazy or maybe it just feels hotter than usual.
