1995 Toyota 4Runner 7MGTE Swap!

So I pulled the trigger and am swapping the 7MGTE into my 4runner.

My current 4runner set up.

22RE, 4 cyl, 5 speed 4X4. 115 hp

New set up:
7MGTE, 6 cyl turbo, 4X4, min 232 hp. My goal is 300 rwhp.

On Sat I am picking up a 7mge OEM flywheel, W58 bellhousing, and a spec stage 3 W58 6 puck clutch (rated for 359 hp).

I will up date with pics of the build as I go along.

Time frame for completion: Dec 31 2011 or earlier.

Why i'm doing this... I want more hp out of my 4runner and there are not many guys in Edmonton with a 7MGTE set up.

Pics of the Lego car.

I did not purchase it for the looks... just the upgrades, and all the components I need to make it work.

So parts on the car are selling much faster than expected. Part of me wants to see how long I can keep stripping the car on my street before bylaw comes and gives me a ticket! This has bumped my swap project a head by a few months.

Deciding to not pursue that risk of a street strip, I moved the car into the garage tonight. I've started to remove some body panels, interior pieces and prepare the engine for removal sometime this week.

Now for the pics.

Hood and headlight covers removed. A few upgrades exposed




I'm contemplating installing the MOMO steering wheel in my 4runner. If I keep it, I would need to rewire the cruise. Remember.. I want it to look close to OEM as possible, but tastefully modded yet functional.



A closer shot of a few mods. I'm contemplating dumping the manual boost controller and going with the electronic set up. Maybe another AVC-R or something new on the market.



GOT BOOST? :facepalm:

No, just the stock Supra AFM.

Yeah, saw that on second glance. It was just the BOV->atmosphere that had me going for a second there.

Tonight was successful on the stripping the exterior and interior. Thanks to Marc, Steve and Matt for coming by and turning a few wrenches.

The front bumper, nose piece, signal lights, door glass, coil overs and many misc parts have been removed. Sunday we are going at it again to get the rest of the interior pulled and the engine ready for removal.

Time for some pics!

Mmm... Inter cooler and guts exposed




no more coil overs nor suspension.



The dash, seats, carpet and the rest of the electronics are coming out.

Thanks to Clem, Steve, Marc and Carl for pulling a few wrenches and screwdrivers this weekend.

The interior and exterior are pretty much stripped to the point I want, unless someone wants the AC system.

Next on the chopping block is the LSD (yes, I will be swapping that into my 4runner...I need to replace a few items first), rear brakes and rotors, exhaust system, drive shaft, then the engine and transmission will be last.

Time for some shots of the car now.



A few parts ready for the swap, the rest are interior parts that are being sold.



Mmm... pretty much gutted!



I needed a temp spot to hold the bumper,cover and foam, rebar and the spare tire..







I'll upload some pics of the engine pull of the supra and the 4runner engine pull and install when it comes along.

In the mean time enjoy the car bring stripped. :beer:

Feb 01 2011 Update.

Tonight I removed the exhaust system and drive shaft. In addition to that I started the engine removal process. Some time this week I will pull out the Limited Slip and store it for my rear diff swap. (I might do a different thread on that, or include it in my turbo swap)

Anyways some pics.

Wire harness through the fire wall, engine in the process for removal.



The Magnaflow exhaust on there now. The sound of the exhaust is decent so I will keep it for now. I just need to fab, route and weld new pieces to make it fit the 4runner. I like that it already has the 3 inch piping.



Over enlarged exhaust?



The rest of the system including the drive shaft



The weakest link in the exhaust system. The OEM Turbo Elbow. I will be replacing this with the LIPP high flow turbo elbow.
