Q: Putting remanufactured engine in an old Ford truck

asked by on

I'm going to buy an old Ford truck with an inline 6 of older 93-94 Toyota 4Runner. I've got a remanufactured engine from Gasburg with the engine's bolt on 2200 with a V bolt on a Toyota. Which of those vehicles would it be easier to work on and last longer?

They are both pretty easy to work on, but the 4Runner would generally last a lot longer. They have tighter tolerances and that’s what I would go for if I were you. I’d get a Toyota.
