    Well went to pass someone today in my 09 TRD S/C Tacoma and bam/bam and white smoke out tail pipe. On wrecker ride home it was bleeding oil from bottom of engine bay. I figure its blown. Will take skid plate off this weekend and survey they damage. But I am assuming I busted block since its leaking oil. If I do indeed need a new block/engine what 4.0 Toyota models/years would be a drop in? Thanks. Going to go drink now :frown:

    03+ 4Runner. But the 03-04 intake cam gears woupd need to be swapped from your engine to those.

    Then obviously 05-11 Tacoma.

    07-09 FJ

    And some year model Tundras that I am not sure of.

    Nitrous is on truck (50 shot) but was not on. Went to pass a semi and got in it about half way past him it made nasty noise and felt it shake a little (almost thought I had messed up trans) and then smoked like hell (white/grey). Slowed down as soon as I could and pulled over and shut it off. Popped hood and visibly everything looked fine. So fired it back up and it was knocking like hell and maf read rich. So shut it off. Didn't notice oil til I went to take off wrecker and saw pulled 12" or so in diameter.

    Just depends on how good your tuning is on these. Powder cast rods are not strong in these. They are quite thin in structure as well.

    Good tuning for knock prevention and not getting crazy with a raised rev limiter will help a lot.

    First mod should be the oil pan spacer though.

    Coupe makes those. Member here. Grumpy recently posted a picture of his modded spacer. The factory lower oil pan is just very shallow. The spacer just gives the sump more depth.

    FYI our mechanic at SO initially thinks that I may have lost a valve (retainer) and had the valve fall into cylinder and become an internal projectile. But that is obviously pending me and him tearing the engine down. Tune was good and conservative since it has been in place for.30k+ miles with no issues whatsoever. Also A/F was at 10.3 at the moment all went to hell (habit of watching gauge when in boost).

    That would really suck, if it was due to a failed retainer. Would be the first time I have heard of that as well.

    That blocks got over 135k on it remember, not saying that's terrible but I'd buy a lower priced one with lower miles and build it up before buying that.

    Well seasoned blocks are better for building up. Now, I have NO idea the condition of my motor internally, I will say this, it did eat a screw, which is why I got rid of it......:rolleyez:
