my 2002 is at 300k and throwing PO300/ 305 codes ( wont pass emissions, and has a bit of roughness and intermittent knock}

ive hit up all the jdm import engine groups by the fair grounds and they all want 1,050-1,300 for garbage looking rusty pulls.

the closest reman crate ive found is out of washington but i dont want to send my core back or pay 7k for a engine. any of you know a good toyota tec builder in the valley or a engine shop that has a rep? thanks!

I can’t answer your question directly, but do you have Facebook? If so, join the Arizona 4Runners group. A lot of those guys are all about the 5vz-fe and can give you some good suggestions specific to this engine. A few guys in that group have also rebuilt multiple 5vz-fe, and a couple of guys have spare engines from part-outs that may be in good condition for relatively cheap.
