Default engine swapping 4cyl Yotas

Will a carbed 85 4cyl truck accept a 90 4cyl fi system? Anyone have any details to look for?

reason: Brother in Law 4 runner puked (think blew head gasket and warped head) and he also has a 85 2wd truck as a DD.

He doesnt think anything will cross over but help me prove him wrong. Links to people who have done it, or pages where its done would be very helpful.

Thanks

Dennis

Just search, it's what the internet was made for. I can't really help you other than to say it can and has been done thousands of times. There are tons of write-ups and probably hundreds of threads on a lot of 4x4 boards discussing this topic, google is your friend.

There the same exact motors. Just One is set up for efi and one for a carb (different intakes). Just swap the whole harness over with the motor and your good to go.

I just took the fork off on the little truck (92 2wd toyota truck) when i pulled the motor. Sucks taking off the trans bolts without a body lift. Ended up pulling the head off cuz skife wanted it. Made it alot easier.
