2007 FJ engine dead, gotta get something

My daughter has worn out this 2007 FJ. Hardly any off-road or 4x4 usage, just high mileage.
This would make a good project truck for engine replacement and/or off-road only applications.
Current engine is original and had catastrophic oil loss and subsequent lockup. One cylinder bank checked - 2 at less than 50 psi even when oil added. TRD supercharger added before we bought it. Don't know if it is Factory or After.
187K miles
automatic 4x4
Warn winch (no remote)
ARB bumper
roof rack
high end Toyota stereo with sub
as stated above, engine is dead.
Catalytic converter codes showing, may need replacement.
original automatic transmission
new rear 3rd member from ECGS.
royal blue with black interior
new Goodyear A/T tires
interior clean and nice 7 out of 10.
will try to load pics.

Asking $6,000 or best offer. See in North Texas, north of Dallas.

Re: 2007 FJ engine dead, gotta get something

Impressive that your daughter beat the crap out of the FJ. I'm glad I bought both of mine little sedans! It certainly would make a nice project vehicle, GL with the sale!

How much would it cost to get the engine rebuilt?

I wouldn't attempt a rebuild, it'll never hold. Far more economical to find a low mileage replacement out of a totaled rig, a very common engine that can be outfitted with the TRD setup for the supercharger.

I don't believe you can overbore a Toyota 4.0L. All you can do is re-ring and hope for the best. I'd find a replacement and ditch the supercharger. In favor of crawl boxes.

Whaaaattt? Have we entered the era of the disposable vehicle?

That is incredibly short-sighted considering the number of FJ-40s still hanging on after all these years. Can someone confirm that?

Yes officer, I know I that smell like beer. I'm not drinking it, I'm wearing it!

Long blocks run $3k to $5.5k + all the labor to change everything over and replace any other worn out engine components. If the engine is rebuildable, which I think it is, since it does turn over (he did the compression test), it will run $2k-$3k. The question I would pose is, if it ran out of oil, why would the compression be low in 2 cylinders? It is possible that the valve train was affected by the lack of oil pressure (chain, tensioners, cam bearing surfaces), but typically the crank train will seize first and I have seen many seized engines!
