2.4L 22RE to 3.4L 5VZ-FE

Hello all,

I have a 1990 T4R that came with the 22RE. It is 4wd with the automatic transmission. I would like to swap a 5VZ-FE into it. Has anyone done this or knows of someone on here that has? I searched and couldn't really find anything on going from 2.4 22R(E) to 3.4 5VZ but found plenty on going from the 3.0 to 3.4 an all said it was extremely straight forward. I'm trying to get an idea of what all it will take to do this swap so I'm not going in blind and run into a bunch of issues that maybe somebody else already figured out. If its fairly straight forward like the 3.0 to 3.4 then i plan on buying a wrecked 3rd gen T4R from Copart and rebuilding the motor before I put it in. Any advice helps. Thanks!!

The location of motor mounts on frame rails are different locations on the 22RE chassis then on the 3VZE chassis.

For a more straight forward swap, look into the 3rz swap. Its the 4cylinder that came in the same year as the 5vzfe rigs.

Its no 5vzfe but at 150hp, still way better than a 22re

^ going to be 100x easier to use a 3rz over the 5vzfe for mounting wise unless youre doing basically a frame swap from the front forward. Mounts and everything wont line up for crap.
