Keep the pile of bits so you can tinker with rebuilding it and then trash it. If you had bottomless pockets and a full machine shop at your disposal, Id tell you, your nuts, go buy a used engine.
This is what I would do as well. All of those bearings are trash, crank is f'd from all of the washout of the head gasket leak, a couple rods are cut/broken??, it's not going to be cheap to fix all of this.

I was not expecting to see that much damage and got completely discouraged trying to continue the rebuild process. I wasn't even able to get the crank out of the block.
The block, heads, cams, pistons, connecting rods, caps, bearings are at a machine shop and they will let me know what's salvageable.
As a backup, I'll be trying to source a motor from pull-a-part in the mean time.

I appreciate all your comments.

Someone local to me said he has an 08 engine for $3200. What do you guys think? He'll give me the mileage tomorrow.

Nevermind. After reading this thread, it's probably more headache than it's worth.

Beeze, roughly speaking, what was your anticipated budget and hours for a quality rebuilding with OEM parts? Before and after you discovered the extent of the damage.

3k on a rebuild. Time wise....3-4 hours every evening until it's done.

Have you called any of the salvage yards like Yoda Jim? I think hes out on I76/I270 exchange. Maybe he can get a bead on a lump for you.

What triggered all the failure, is it just bad luck?

I bought the vehicle knowing it had engine knock. Im guessing bad/improper maintenance had a lot to do with it and most likely started with a blown headgasket.

From what I understand, you can't mix v6 engines from 03-04 with 05-09 engine because the both use different transmissions, and also have difference ECM communication protocals. with an 05, an 08 engine on paper should work out

So, I am going to scrap rebuilding this engine since I do not have unlimited funds. I also shared the photos of the carnage above with a tech at Toyota who confirmed the block is toast.
The machine shop quoted me $1800 in labor only for the heads and block work, no parts included.

I have two leads on an '07 with159,000 miles and and '08 with 161,000 mile engine right around 3k. Should be done with this by this weekend going this route.

The engine is the same, just with an updated head gasket from what I've heard. The ECU and transmission just bolt up to the actual engine so there should be no issue at all with using a later model (06-09') engine in his 05' - same with any sensors attached to the engine that may have changed thru the years.

With the engine core at $150 I might keep the darn thing. '08 Taco engine comes with 1 yr warranty vs 90 day warranty on the 07 4runner.
