why rebuild? are you going to keep it stock? or build it up? why not just swap the engine out for a newer one with better compression and fewer miles? whats wrong with your current engine that it needs a rebuild?

cost to rebuild is usually HIGHER than it costs to swap the old engine out for a newer, lower mileage one.

OK homie :silly: , i have a 95 4runner and went threw 3 ATK 22re/s before i went with the LC 22re stroker motor and that thing was bombproof, well about the parts for your 5vz just get some titanium rods and forged pistons but go with total seal rings and bore that block over ! port / polich that head and are you running a Eaton supercharger cuz i built many of those F_U_C_K getting magnuson to rebuild something as simple as that.
