A good friend of mine has exploded his engine. Don't ask, I can't even begin to tell you how he did it.

While having to replace his engine, is it possible to swap it with something a little different? Since its a stock 2.0 4x4 will another engine from Toyota's line-up fit and provide a little more Power/Tourque? If so What would be the perfect donor car to use? This Rav will stay with him for a long time and cost is not a huge concern, but throwing it in the trash and having to buy something else is.

Let me know your views. He wants to find a donor soon. Thanks. M.

The 2.4L I4 engine that comes standard in the 2004-2005 RAV4s should drop in as it's physically the same size as the 2.0L I4 engine that came standard in the 2001-2003 RAV4s. Not sure if both the 2.4L and 2.0L engines used the same tranny. YOu'll have to research some more.

Hello ??

PLEASE....... PLEEAASSSEEEE........... I beg you...... PLEASE....... I am dying to know what in the world he did or one could do to to an 01's engine for it to explode. How many miles?
Poor thing. (the car I mean)

I did not expect to hear such stories for a long time but only in 4 years? May be 4 years is a long time.

Its Irish and not really the right color for "The Republic of Newfoundland" but it will have to do. It should be Green, White and Pink. In that order. Its where I'm from but since it hasn't been its own country for 56 years I didn't expect to find the flag here.

The engine exploded due to his stupidity and sort of an experiment gone drasticaly wrong.
