Apohl17's AventuRunner Build Thread - V8 4th Gen

I hereby dedicate this thread to the trials and tribulations of switching over from my awesome 3rd Gen Iceberg Build to this larger, more powerful 4th Gen unofficially dubbed, The AventuRunner.

It's a 2007 Titanium Metallic Sport Edition 4runner w/ 211k on the ghastly 4.7l 2uz V8.

I just got "done" building up the Iceberg not long ago, and it has treated me oh so well, but the opportunity arose locally to purchase this second owner, Salt Lake- grown runner for the sake of less rust and miles, more power, and eventual equal capability.

Pics we all came to see...
The AventuRunner on the 22nd of September, 2019!

And when I got it on September 1st...

So after purchasing the vehicle, I began the hour drive home with my pops. I'm a good driver, mmkay? Well, Mr. Sheriff man decided to make sure I knew that I didn't have any license plates on. First time getting pulled over happened in a vehicle I owned for less than 30 minutes! Good times.
Nonetheless, he let me go with a warning ( it's legal to drive a just-purchased un-registered car in WI), and I made 'er home...

And then proceeded to get it onto the lift, where it would remain all evening and the entire next day for a timing belt job. Previous timing belt was done at 91k, so it was 30k overdue at 211k! Definitely first order of business.

I'll eventually reorder my pictures to where they are captioned inline, but for now, this will have to do.

For any and all of you guys that have done this job, you know how much of a daunting and lengthy task it is!
I started by watching some good videos:
YouTube part 1
YouTube part 2

And then dug into it, slowly but surely. Hardest parts are definitely the fan bracket and the crankshaft bolt.
I ordered the Aisin TKT-021 Kit from ebay, then bought an OEM thermostat (which I later found out had never been replaced, so I'm glad I did), t-stat gasket, serp belt, and FIPG separately, along with 2gal of fresh Z-red coolant. I didn't feel the need to do the crank seal, and wasn't going to mess with the cam seals due to the VVT-I. Overall, about $250 in parts for a job that would be close to a grand in labor if I were to take it to a shop. Can't complain!

Really happy with how smooth it went- I could definitely tell the old t-belt has stretched and worn a bit when comparing the 130k difference. Cleaned up the engine bay a bit and got a game plan put together for a power steering refresh, new AFE filter, HCF filter delete, and an AIP bypass in the next week or so to keep things smooth in the bay. My first drive to work in this thing was awesome with the extra oomph, and everything is running like a charm!

2 very nice T4Rs!!

It seems you're doing a very good job on the 2007!

I also was pulled over by a very small town police officer when I was bringing my 2004 home when I bought it for not having tags, we have 4 weeks to register a vehicle here in South Carolina, the young "country boy" police officer was ignorant of this fact..but after showing him my bill of sale and the title signed over to me and explaining to him what the law is he was at first a little dumb founded and told me I just had to have some kind of "identifer"..LOL, I again explained the law to him and he called his superior who must of explained the law to him as well and he told me to have a good day and I was on my way!!

Thanks! It sure was an interesting feeling of getting pulled over in a vehicle before I even got it home...

Looking good! I agree that the fan bracket was difficult...it almost made me give up early if not for a persistent friend with a blowtorch. HCF is EZ! I got the AIP bypass from slyfox. Very easy to install and seems to work just fine.

Looking forward to another V8 build! I've probably got maintenance items I should be doing the same. The lift definitely makes it easier to get work done on these big rigs!

Right on! Didn't have to use a torch at all- just lots of persistence and the right tools. I'm very happy to not have to worry about the t-belt for another 100k, one less thing off the plate. Yup, I'm just waiting to get my AFE filter, then will remove the HCF at the same time. Same though, Jeff was very professional and I can't wait to see how easy it is to install with the kit.

Awesome! It really is quite a nice engine in these beasts. It definitely does! Very glad I have access to one at my fingertips.

Well, second day of driving it and... the front passenger tire is flat as can be after work, 15 miles from home. Luckily I had a portable compressor at work to throw enough in it to get me home.

I proceeded to spend the next half hour searching for the mysterious object that was in my tire... And didn't find anything. Soapy water, nothing... So I got to a point where it was getting late, so I filled up the tire with more air, and...found the issue. the valve core was leaking, BAD. Threw a new core in and it's good to go.

Good times!

(first picture is this morning, happy to see it still at 35 psi)

Day two on the work grind and this flashy flashy TPMS light is driving me bananas. I told myself I'd wait 'til the weekend to get the disable done, but after getting home from work and taking care of some business back home, it was dark, but I decided to get it done. I guess it goes to show how easy it was...

Lots of good writeups on this here on the forums.
Write-up: How to Disable (Bypass) the TPMS

I, however, wanted to do it so it was un-disable-able.

1. Remove the black lower trim under the glove box with a single Philips head screw.
2. Pull the connector off the orange box.
3. Look for the pink/black and white/black wires leading into the male connector.
4. Take a 2" piece of Bell wire in 20 AWG and jump the two pins on the opposite side of the connector.
5. Wrap in electrical tape for posterity's sake. (not shown in pics)

Voila! Light is gone and I can remove when I get the pesky battery replaced in my dead sensor, when I get new tires next year.

I guess it goes to show how easy it was...

Lots of good writeups on this here on the forums.
Write-up: How to Disable (Bypass) the TPMS

I, however, wanted to do it so it was un-disable-able.

1. Remove the black lower trim under the glove box with a single Philips head screw.
2. Pull the connector off the orange box.
3. Look for the pink/black and white/black wires leading into the male connector.
4. Take a 2" piece of Bell wire in 20 AWG and jump the two pins on the opposite side of the connector.
5. Wrap in electrical tape for posterity's sake.

Voila! Light is gone and I can remove when I get the pesky battery replaced in my dead sensor, when I get new tires next year.
Nice! I went with the wire tap route. Partially because when I opened that area up a previous owner had already stripped and taped together the two wires to bypass but the tape hadn't held and the wires were no longer touching. I was so glad it fixed my TPMS light because I too was going nuts with it flashing! Your method is definitely easier and more simply reversible!

Ordered a Gibson cat-back exhaust yesterday from @Jason B at Burtman Industries! Went with the SS, dual side exit, black tip system. Can't wait to receive it and install.
