Now if they put the 5.7 in the 4Runner...
Those numbers may be right, but the power delivery and that little bit of extra torque made a big difference to me. It just took less effort to lug the 4runner around. Mine was an 04 V8 SE. I do miss the engine and the current 4.0 doesn't get much better mpg. I'd like to see a V8 back in the 4Runner, but I don't see Toyota doing that and it might be a bit too heavy for a balanced off roader like it is now.
