The cost about $7000+ to newblock and rebuild head for the 1FZ.
A assume you can't get a new long block.
A used motor is $2500.
Is it worth spending $7000 on a old hi mi 80? Then the tranny would go at some time after that. I can get a good lower mi 80 in better shape than my for not much more than the price of a new motor and tranny?
What does one do in this case???

www.toyota-parts-dealer.com has a complete new engine (minus electricals and manifold) for $6990.17, and a short block for $2945.02, these are OEM Toyota. I suppose Cdan could do similar as well, so an engine might not cost as much as you think.

LKQ, national used auto parts place quoted me $1800 for a 60K mile motor and $1200 for the Tranny for my high miles 93 a few months ago. They said they had several motors ranging from 60K to 150K all the same price. Those prices convinced me that I was safe buying a rig with 240k on the clock.

If one went with a used motor, does is have to come out of the same year as the one you are putting it in?
Do years overlap?
If you went with a newer year would you need the ECU and wiring and what else?

I asked about the long block and got an answer

"Kurt, complete motor not avail short block 2642.16 bare head 1124.35 it would take me 3 to 5 days to get parts if you have any questions call"

So you/I will have to build your own motor from parts :'(

Still, doesn't seem like too bad a price for a new toyota shortblock, that should be good for another 250k+
