        Hello James. There are a few suppliers of manifolds over here and they are often hard to deal with. Check out CSL camshafts in Palmerston north and Hartley engineering. (hartley race engines) . If you don't have luck with these guys we can go back to the drawing board. If you need an NZ address to send it to I can help then I can post it as a gift.

      Hi not sure if this is a PM.. You said to PM you and you could give me some pointers where my wiring maybe wrong, to sort my iac fault. I do appreciate your help mate. My personal email is I keep asking Bushwacker but he rarely gets back to me.. Regards David Holmes

      Hi Gloverman, I am in need of your advice. I am in the process of removing my cylinder heads ('97 1UZFE), and need instruction on how to re-align the intake and exhaust cams (especially the split gear exhaust cam). I have read a couple of poorly written explanations but they do more to confuse than enlighten me.
      I would greatly appreciate any assistance you could send my way.

      hi Gloverman, I'd like to do the 1UZ conversion on a 1996 KZJ78 prado (box type) with a manual gearbox. R151F which i'd love to keep.
      I'd like to buy one of your write-ups and then seek advice from you after studying it.
      I'm in Kenya so i hope to use paypal. my email is
      Thanks and Regards

      I was having a similar issue. One difference is I make a living out of 1uz conversions. I was getting around 25 phone calls a day with basic questions that many people where too lazy to research (or simply think about ) for themselves so I sat down and wrote up some conversion instructions. I now sell these and they have given me more time every day. I also provide email support and understand when I get the odd silly basic question. This was a way for me to identify the really good customers and I help them over the coarse of the conversion. I was starting to become a grumpy prick. (sideshow got like this after too much forum pressure). I now pick and chose who I help for free. Forums are great but they also hinder a lot of people as incorrect advice is given.
      For you if you don't know I would simply say that you are not sure or suggest the person does some research.

      Hope this helps. Good to see your Mitsi is coming along nicely. Have you driven it yet?

      Hi Kelvin,
      I'm wondering what your thoughts are on people coming on this forum and others asking basically for a "how to" on doing their conversions.
      I've done mine and still learning and making mistakes along the way , by gathering info over the years , and posting here what Ive done , for all to read and use . But being asked to do an A to Z on how to do it is abit ....shall I say lazy . These forums are great and Ive been able to do some stuff on my project that years ago would have scared the shit out of me. And lots of people including yourself have helped me , and I've advised a couple of people to ask you as well for advice. I don't want to tell these people to shall I say "go away" but as I'm still really only a back yard DYIer , I think they would be better off learning off the net etc . So what do you reckon is a good response to these requests.

      As you know a fair bit about the 1uz what the best piston rod combination for strength and price.

      Would your instructions include the 88 89 4runner that you have for sale on your website?

      gday. got a question. is it possible at all to use a hiace manual behind a 1UZ? will the bellhousing bolt up or do i need an adapter plate with the UZ bellhousing?

      hi gloverman i have turned private message off.
    18. gloverman
      Simple answer is no for JDM spec engines. Some UK and US spec UCF20 cars had immobiliser in 1997/98. I have never looked for factory manuals as I have never needed them. I have written a set of conversion instructions and am working on a preparation sheets which would help you. Im going to be doing a special for converison and prep instructions for $150. Contact my workshop to buy a set. Cheers kelvin
