    1999 1UZ Toyota Hilux

    Sorry for the late reply, forgot this thread existed anymore after I started the forced induction build. When we originally done the conversion on mine it wasn't too much of a dilemma. It fitted within main roads capacity limits, etc and was pretty straight forward on that part. But I have been...

    1uzfe uprated crank

    Is there any particular reason you want to replace the standard crank? It is a forged steel item that has been used very successfully into numerous high hp combos.

    Hey Nathan. Sorry for the delay. I have an aftermarket balancer which is a different size to standard, so I measured from approx the centre of the balancer bolt to the top edge of my 65mm blower pulley. Which is a distance of around 490mm. Hope that is of some help to you. What vehicle/setup...

    1UZ converters Brisbane

    Are you looking for a business or someone private to do the conversion? Bullet Cars at Yatala have been involved with Hilux/1UZ conversions before if it's any help. Probably not too cheap of an option, just depends what your budget is.

    Anyone know where David, aka lextreme, is??

    Glad to hear you got it all sorted out. As for head studs, they might be a bit more difficult. I know Bullet up here stock the ARPs but at $480, they are prob a tad pricey for a stock rebuild? Best bet may be to track down the ARP p/no and contact some of our local performance suppliers (VPW...

    Anyone know where David, aka lextreme, is??

    I'm not sure how these compare price and quality wise to what you ordered. But if you have no luck receiving the ones you purchased, I used a set of ACL seals which I brought from the guys in the link below if it is of any help to you...

    Supercharged 1UZ celica

    Awesome. I'm quite a fan of the Kenne Bell blowers, especially the sound of them, haha. Have actually been looking into them myself. Especially after seeing the great results guys have been having with the Liquid Cooled cases on all the late model V8 falcons here.

    1UZ into HT Ute

    It certainly is, timing and boost will be your new best friends :D Guess it all depends on your setup and future plans. I went big all round with my fuel system to be safe, as well all know about the constant want for more. I went with Injector Dynamics 1000cc. The ID's seem to be the pick of...

    1UZ into HT Ute

    Yeh, seen that one, certainly done a job of it. Was it the only other one? Definitely won't regret the move to E85 as I'm sure you have heard plenty of times, magical stuff. How come you chose to opt for the glide instead of something with 3 gears?

    1UZ into HT Ute
