hey gloverman are you sure? i'm running the 2uz block on my mkiii supra and I just swapped everything from my sc400 1uz straight over, with no modifications. Am I missing something here?

Beario, 2UZ's are the cast iron block 4.7 liter motors found in Toyota pickups.

1UZ's are the ally block 4.0 motors found in Lexus cars.

If your motor is coming out of an LS400, you have a 4.0 liter 1UZ.

I'll change the title of your thread to reflect 1UZ instead of 2UZ.

When we have swapped sumps from early motor Gen 1/2 onto VVti (1uz and 3uz) engines we drill some of the main sump mounting holes from 6 mm to 8mm. These are the main alloy pan onto block bolts. No tapping , just drilling. I could be wrong about the 2uz, that one was a while ago. Cheers
