2005 toyota 4runner mods

2005 toyota 4runner mods DEFAULT

The Toyota 4runner might not have the same massive aftermarket support as the Jeep Wrangler, but that doesn&#;t mean there aren&#;t lots of great upgrades available. Today I&#;m going to count down my list of the best 4th Gen 4runner mods.

The market for 4runners is actually pretty cool. There aren&#;t a ton of companies that make parts for these, but the ones that do are awesome. Definitely a quality over quantity situation. The great thing about that is you really can&#;t go wrong when choosing 4runner parts.

Modifications are one of the first things on a lot of new 4runner owners&#; minds. While it&#;s a very capable vehicle on and off road right from the factory, it can be improved quite a bit with just a few basic upgrades. These are my favorites that I&#;ve done on mine so far:

 

Doug Thorley Headers (2UZ V8)

The 4th Gen 4runner isn&#;t known to have very many common failures but the factory exhaust manifolds are one of them. Long story short, the manifolds will crack over time, developing an exhaust leak.

In most cases, this isn&#;t an issue that will cause any driveability problems or even a check engine light. What it will do is drive you crazy with a loud, embarrassing ticking noise.

You could replace these manifolds with new Toyota parts but there are a couple of reasons why I don&#;t recommend that. New OEM manifolds are expensive &#; and they&#;ve already been proven to fail eventually. If I&#;m going to pay to fix a problem, I&#;d like to do it the best way in hopes of never having to deal with it again.

 

Toyota 2UZ V8

This is where the short tube headers from Doug Thorley come in. They&#;re made out of stainless steel and carry a lifetime warranty. Simply put, these things are built way stronger than the factory manifolds. They&#;re a lot cheaper, too.

For me, the longevity of these headers vs the OEM manifolds is enough to sell me on them. But there are some performance-related bonuses that really seal the deal. They&#;ll give you an extra 30 horsepower and 30 ft-lbs of torque in the mid range. That&#;s enough to make a noticeable difference when driving around town.

Due to their efficient flow, the Doug Thorley headers will also bump up your fuel economy. In my case, I regained nearly the whole 2 MPG I lost after adding the lift and tires to my 4runner.

For more info on the problem and my complete review on these headers, check out this post:

 

Ceramic Coating

I understand that not all 4runners were sold with the V8 so the next one is something that any year or model of 4runner can benefit from &#; a ceramic coating. No, this isn&#;t really a modification. But it is something that will improve the ownership experience of your 4runner.

Being a detailer myself might make me biased on this one. The &#;best color of paint is a new coat of mud&#; crowd is probably going to disagree. But protecting your paint job with a ceramic coating isn&#;t just about fancy water beading and bragging at a car show.

The biggest benefit of a ceramic coating is that it makes your vehicle much quicker and easier to clean up. You&#;re more likely to do something often when it requires less effort. Using a pressure washer on a ceramic coated vehicle will remove the majority of the dirt before you even touch it with a wash mitt. I&#;m all for making life easier.

 

Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light Review

Since a proper paint correction is part of the application process, your 4th Gen 4runner is guaranteed to look better than most of the brand new $50, rigs in the parking lot. Get used to answering the question &#;what year is that thing!?&#; if you go this route.

There are many different options to choose from when it comes to ceramic coatings, from cheap DIY products to high end professional applications. Click here to read my long term review of the coating on my 4runner, Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light:

 

Upgraded Suspension

One of the biggest limiting factors of the 4th Gen 4runner is the OEM suspension. Whether we care to admit it or not, the majority of Toyota 4runners that are sold will never see any off road action. Unfortunately, Toyota had to keep this in mind when designing and tuning the factory suspension.

Don&#;t get me wrong, it isn&#;t bad. But it could be much better. It&#;s very soft and smooth which is great for on road driving. Some models are equipped with X-REAS which certainly helps with the handling in corners. To put it bluntly, the factory suspension will do the job off road too, but it won&#;t do it well.

There are a lot of great options for upgrading your 4runner suspension. Most of the big aftermarket companies offer systems including Bilstein, Icon, Fox, King, and Old Man Emu. To be honest, you can&#;t go wrong with any of these. It just comes down to what kind of driving you do and how much money you want to spend.

 

Toyota 4runner Fox

Aftermarket suspension does a much better job of soaking up impacts, making it easier to stay in control. Most of these shocks will ride a bit firmer on the street but do a better job of absorbing sharp hits. This is a bit hard to explain if you haven&#;t experienced it, but try to imagine stiffer sports car-like handling combined with a smoother ride over rough roads.

The improved ride quality from upgraded suspension will typically do as good a job or better than the factory X-REAS system. Mine was removed during the install of my Fox / OME setup and I&#;ve never missed it since. You can read more about the Fox suspension here: 

 

Proper Tires

The absolute best upgrade you can make to your otherwise stock Toyota 4runner is a new set of tires. Not just any tires though &#; you need to choose ones that are meant for the type of driving you do.

It&#;s important to take the conditions you drive in into consideration. If you have a lot of sticky mud or clay to deal with, you&#;ll want to upgrade to a mud terrain tire. The biggest downside to a mud tire is the louder road noise, especially when cruising down the highway.

If you&#;re doing more of a mix of on and off road driving, an all-terrain tire will be much better suited to you. These will be quieter on the road (although still louder than a car tire) but might have a tendency to pack up with mud easier, causing them to lose traction.

 

4th gen /70/17

Another big bonus for some all terrain tires is the amount of siping they have. This helps them to perform much better in winter conditions, where a mud tire tends to turn into a racing slick.

While any of these tires in the original size will be an upgrade, switching to a larger size can make an even bigger difference. There isn&#;t a whole ton of room in the wheel wells at stock ride height for larger tires (you can likely go up a size or two without rubbing) but if you plan to lift it you&#;ll have many more sizes to choose from.

The size of tire you can get away with gets even larger if you&#;re bold enough to do a bit of cutting and trimming. I was able to fit /70/17 Goodyear Duratracs on mine without doing any major cutting, although it did require some. You can read more on those tires and why I love them for winter driving in this post: 

 

Other Modifications

Of course, there are lots of other things you can do to upgrade your 4runner &#; these are just some that most owners will appreciate the benefits from. It all comes down to what&#;s important to you.

There are aftermarket lighting setups, audio upgrades, performance exhausts/intakes and off road armor all readily available to you. I would highly suggest spending some time surfing forums like the ones at T4R.org and Expeditionportal.com.

I purchased this 4Runner in January of in Ottawa, Canada and immediately imported and federalized it myself. Since then I have cared for it, daily-driven it when needed, and done a substantial amount of maintenance and upkeep. It has been my favorite vehicle of all those I have owned.

Since taking ownership I've done a considerable amount of maintenance and upkeep on the 4Runner. To the best of my memory, maintenance, upgrade, and other work done while I have owned the 4Runner is as follows:
  • Wheel bearings (Feb. )
  • Key fob case (Feb. ) - OEM Toyota
  • Tie rod outer ends (Feb. ) - MOOG parts
  • Windshield wipers (Feb. )
  • Cabin filter () - EPAuto brand
  • Gas cap () - OEM Toyota part
  • Windshield () - replaced by Safelite

  • Spark plugs and coil boots (June )
  • Throttle body cleaning (June )
  • K&N air intake filter (June )
  • Seafoam injector cleaning (June )
  • Catalytic converters and exhaust manifolds -- both banks/sides + new piping up to the cats (August )
  • Oxygen sensors -- both banks, both upstream and downstream sensors on each size (August )
  • Air conditioning recharged (August )
  • Oil change (8/15/18)
  • Old Man Emu 3” suspension lift -- new shocks/springs (12/)
  • Top strut mounts (12/) - MOOG parts
  • Lower ball joints (12/) - MOOG parts
  • Alignment (12/)
  • Interior LED lights (12/)
(I do have receipts for both parts and labor in most cases; I might be forgetting a few things)

Mechanical condition:
The engine runs smooth as can be and pulls very strong. The prior owner did the head gasket, timing chain, and water pump service with OEM Toyota parts at around , miles. The transmission shifts great. This truck has an absolute ton of life left in it, and if I were keeping it I absolutely expect to get another k miles out of it.

That said, a few issues are present:
  • Dents/dings: The truck was taken off-road by both previous owner and myself. There were scratches and dents prior to my buying it and I have added a few. There’s nothing catastrophically wrong with the body but it certainly isn't perfect. It could be brought back to very solid condition should you want to invest the time and effort.
  • The sunroof works completely fine but makes a clanking noise when hitting the end of its travel. You can avoid this by using the button to stop it just before it hits the end of the track. It does not leak and seals without issue.
  • The air conditioning worked perfectly until it randomly started blowing hot air one day last summer. A friend recharged the system and it went back to working perfectly. When fall came around I stopped using the A/C, but we had a random hot day and it didn’t want to cooperate. I’m not sure what the status is on this now since I haven’t had to use the A/C lately as it’s been cold.
  • Rear wiper was not working so I removed the arm.
  • Stereo: Under 1/4 volume it still a little fuzzy. Above 1/4 it is totally fine. Not an issue for me but if you’re somebody who really cares about sound you’ll want to do something about it.
  • There’s a little surface rust on the bottom of the tailgate.
  • The underside looks rusty but it’s all on the surface. None of the rust jeopardizes the structural integrity of the vehicle. I have had three different independent mechanics verify the frame is in fact in good condition, and wouldn’t have bought it in the first place if it was at all questionable in any way. You could easily restore it to near-perfect health with some elbow grease and an undercoating like POR
Other assorted items of note:
  • The vehicle is completely legal in the USA. I imported and saw it through Customs myself. I had no problems registering it in both New York (in ) and then in Connecticut (in ). All paperwork is present.
  • Because it was originally sold in Canada, the dashboard and gauges/instruments display primary readouts in metric. The speedometer has MPH on the inside ring so you won’t have a problem knowing how fast you’re going but it’s something to be mindful of. I keep a conversion chart for temperature in the vehicle at all times. To some this may be bothersome but to me it has been a fun novelty. Passengers always get a laugh out of it.
  • I do still have the original front bumper, original headlights, and a bunch of other assorted parts for the truck.
Sadly it is time to let my beloved 4Runner go. Though I didn’t intend for such to happen, this 4Runner ended up getting a significant amount of use as a daily driver when life dictated that it needed to be used as such. It came in absolutely clutch when I had back surgery and could not operate my primary vehicle’s manual transmission. That is to say, this 4Runner has never let me down. 4WD works phenomenally and it’s a shockingly capable vehicle on the trails. There’s a ton of articulation from the suspension and A-TRAC works surprisingly well. The truck is very comfortable and has many luxury-caliber things to it. As far as finding a four-wheel-drive vehicle where comfort and capability meet in the middle, this is about as good as it gets. It’s just as competent in day-to-day life as it is on the trails. I wouldn’t hesitate to drive it cross-country and back with some off-roading mixed in for fun, and being a Toyota and a 4Runner I wouldn’t worry a single bit about reliability or having any problems along the way.

This 4Runner was a great entry into the world of Toyota 4x4s for me and has shown me how incredible the 4Runner is as a commute vehicle, road-trip operating hub, and off-road companion. It is a fantastic do-it-all vehicle. Though this 4Runner is far from the prettiest 4th gen out there it’s wildly capable off-road and is still in good enough shape to be daily-driven in comfort on both a work commute and the drive to and from the trailhead alike. I love this truck with my heart and soul, and I only hope that it goes to a good home.

Asking price: $7, OBO

Willing to trade for: Miata (NC/NB Mazdaspeed), Abarth , FRS/BRZ, Fiesta ST, S, S Mustang GT

Question 4runner Preformance Mods

Hey, guys. I've had my v6 4runner for a year now and I love it. However I'd like to juice a little more power out of it, as well as some mileage if possible. I've been looking at muffler systems, as well as air intake systems.

What do you guys recommend? Magnaflow seems to be the most popular, but is that because it is the cheapest? I'd be glad to hear your feedback, and suggestions on the mods.

Thanks

Oh yeah, I also want to put a hood scoop, (hood bulge as my dealership calls it) but is the only way to get a good one to buy a sports edition hood?

You wont be able to get more power AND better fuel economy. . . . .at least any noticable amount.

imo, performance mods dont mean more mpg. my advise would be to read some of the dozens of threads on catback (single or dual exit) & cai (wet or dry filter) & decide what if anything would be good for you. this is something worth while to consider also. Underdog Racing Development other than the cost of a sport hood, this is the only person ive seen on here with a non oem scoop. its from a mustang.

I disagree with both of the posters above. You absolutelycan gain power AND MPG with specific mods. I know this for a fact as I have done it on my 4runner and have been very successful and have had marked improvements.

I Have a v6 4wd and I believe the factory states 16 city and 21 highway MPG. I have been averaging 24mpg as of late and that includes a 2 inch lift kit!

When I first got the car I saw roughly 21mpg highway consistently(as stated by factory), I first added the K&N CAI and it jumped my mpg up to around mpg and I absolutely gained horsepower. The next mod I did was adding a Gibson SS exhaust, which is a GREAT system, and that bumped me up to 24mpg highway and this definitely added a small amount of power.

So 21 to begin with and now with these mods AND a lift I am seeing 24mpg. = +3mpg where I come from, so I am not sure why the posters above state it is not possible. They are flat out wrong. I wonder how much better my mpg would be had I not added the lift kit, I am sure it would have been higher, as more nose down it was more aerodynamic. However the lift is not going anywhere I LOVE IT!

The caveats I will add to this is that when you first get the mods added:

1. The ECU will take time to correct the fuel/air mixture and at first you may not see a gain but once the fuel curve is corrected you will. (all while having a good plus in power!)

2. When you first install these systems, you WILL be FLOORING it every chance you get, so that doesn't help in the gain category and most people are far too impatient to wait for the fuel curve to correct itself and wait for their lead foot to stop.

3. It will be louder, however not to the point that it is of any annoyance to you or your neighbors, IMO.

I would estimate I gained roughly 5%% in HP and torque and I know that I have gained a % gain in MPG.

So yes, you absolutely can gain MPG AND power. I have and can back that with real world knowledge and experience. My suggestion is go for it and you wont regret it.

ur entitled to ur opinion as is everyone else that has had experience with these things, but good driving habits will lead to better & noticable mpg than any performance mods made. eitherway, i also have them on mine, & for what ever reasons, notice less mpg than before installing them. hmmm, "real world knowledge & experience" i guess ive been living on another planet or in a different dimension for my 40 years of driving.

thanks for the Responces, do you mind sending me a link to the cai and the exhaust system you installed?

I think at this point I'll be searching for aftermarket scoops, seeing as toyota gave me a quote of dollars to order and install a sport edition hood.

Yeah, unfortunately the lightish blue color of my 4runner isn't as common as the other colors, though i"d like to find that color paint.

Also what are the most prevalent differences between these two K&N cai models

I don't know the answer to your question but don't forget the TRD catback exhaust since you've got the V6. Technically it's discontinued but you can still find them brand new on Ebay sold by Toyota dealers.

depends on whether u want a single or dual setup, two tips or one, straight back or side exit, & how much u can spend. gibson may be the cheapest & borla the most $, magnaflow is pretty popular & can be had for about http://www.lmperformance.com//html heres the trd http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TRDiteme

IMO, anything that has a straight (if even off set) through design. FlowMaster doesn't have a flow through designat least if they do, I haven't seen one yet. All of their muffler designs use a baffled system of one sort or another. Just depends upon the tone/ sound their going for. Magnaflo and DynaPro are two of the same type of muffler's(flow through) When you're shopping around for em' understand that the size of the muffler itself will determine how low of a tone you get. The smaller ones will have a higher pitched tone to them where as the bigger ones will give a more mellow/ deeper tone. I have a MagnaFlow on my 96 Taco with the L and it's right on the cusp of sounding like a fart can. Put that same muffler on a V6 and it sounds considerably betterthe exhaust pulse has something to do with this as well. I know this because my buddy has a 90 and we had the same mufllers put on at the same time. I do like his better though.

As far as performance mod's go: If you put CAI on, this will (usually) allow more air to flow into the intake. One of things to consider is where the intake air is actually being drawn frome.gif it's an open element with out heat shielding from the engine bay, then what you're gonna get is hot air from under the hoodengine temp will cause this excess heat under the hood. Some one challenge me on thisPLEASE! The cooler the intake air is, the higher the Oxygen content will be. And this is a real factor in how more HP/ TQ is made. If there is a sealed environment/ heat shielding then the CAI should actually draw in the cooler air. It all depends upon how the CAI system was designed and how well it's sealed from the engine compartment's hot air. The cooler the air, the higher the Oxygen content will be for the given amount of air being drawn in. However, the electronic's will compensate for the increase in Oxygen and start to deliver more fuel for said throttle position. So the real increase comes from a denser level of Oxygen be delivered through the intake.

Hey Chaz, I'm not gonna try and challenge your statement of less MPG but I do have a couple of questions. Do you have any before and after info about the CAI and exhaust modification's? Did you change tire size's before or after? Gear's? Did those get changed at all? A roof rack, a new bumper or anything that added any weight to the vehicle? The reason I ask, is cause usually when you increase the air flow to the engine or it's ability to exhale, you should see an increase in it's effiencey If you have some base line figures before you did these mod's, I'd be interested to see if you've done any research or logging of any after mileage information as well. Also, what CAI and exhaust mods have you done or did you go with?
