The 3.4L 5VZ-FE found in Tacomas, Tundras and 4Runners have an oil pan sump in the front of the engine. This prevents the installation of this engine into any previous generation Truck/4Runner/T100, due to suspension and steering clearance. When performing the 3.4L conversion it is necessary to convert the pan, sump, and dipstick setup to the rear. This kit includes the parts needed to complete the rear sump swap-over, except the oil pan itself, allowing the customer to save money while using their original engine’s oil pan (or a used oil pan). Therefore, this kit will also require the use of a 3VZ-E or T100 5VZ-FE oil pan (not included).
Genuine NEW Toyota parts (from the proper T100 application) include: oil sump, sump gasket, pan gasket maker, dip-stick, dip-stick tube, tube adapter, and tube O-ring. Also included are a tap and plug to seal the original dip stick tube hole, making this the most complete kit on the market.
ORS-EC090 will require the use of an oil pan from a 2WD T100 5VZ application. ORS-EC091 will require the use of an oil pan from an ‘88-95 4×4 Truck/4Runner 3VZ-E or 4WD T100 V6 application.
2000 and newer engine blocks require drilling a hole for the dipstick. For this, we recommend the ORS Dipstick Drill Guide.
