if you mean free-wheeling, as in the valves will not hit the pistons if the t-belt breaks, then yes, it is a free-wheeler.

What's the horsepower and tourqe output of this engine?

I just dumped my 97 and got an 02 and I'd like to know.

The 3.4 is pretty weak to be honest. It's solid and won't let you down but it's no speed demon.

My 4.0 however is a beast in my '05 Tacoma. :)

Depends what it's in actually. Loaded down in a 4Runner, and/or with an auto trans it is definetly nothing special.

However, in my 5 speed 98 Taco, it's actually quicker than I'd remembered and definetly has enough jam to get you around without troubles. I want to run it against a 4L and see how the old girl stacks up :D

My 2000 automatic 4R, however, was perdy shlow.

Oh and ya....non-interferance for sure.

My friend has an '00 3.4 with the TRD Supercharger. It will spin the tires when u stomp it rolling at 10 mph. That engine has MUCH potential.

He delivers pizza in it.

Definetly.....I stole a lifted 2001 4x4 5spd for a spin.....it had the TRD S/C, full exhaust, headers, FIPK type box, centerforce clutch, etc, and that truck went like a raped ape even on 33" tires.

There is a shop about 30 miles east of me, F2uning is the name, and they specialize in high-hp 3.4L V6 Taco's and 4runners. They just built a 1000whp 4runner last year and have a few 800hp, 600hp, and 400hp 4runners and Tacoma's under their belt!

The stock 3.4 is a good starting point for some serious modifying. 4 bolt mains, iron block, 4 cams... Toyota doesn't mess around when they develop truck engines.

Just wait until TRD releases the S/C for the 1GRFE. :D

The 3.4 Tacos are faster than the 4.0 Tacos...I should know I own both.

How do you figure?

"Tacoma's 4-cyl engines are acceptable for light-duty work, but the V6 is the best choice for any model. Test 2WD V6/automatic PreRunner Double Cab did 0-60 mph in a respectable 9.7 sec."

http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/cars/models/toyota/tacoma/model-overview-4255-5045.htm - not sure if that will work since you need to be a subscriber.

"0-60 7.6 Seconds"

And that's comparing the heavier 4WD '06 to the 2WD old truck. You may need to get your G-tech out and do a re-test.
