    797,000 km's on a 1996 LS400

    I have no shadow of a doubt that it will probably go on to do 1,000,000 kays, provided it is serviced regularly (and properly).

    Forward Facing Factory Exhaust Manifolds for turbo... Feasable?

    Thank you for the feedback guys! I think there are pro's and cons to both options, however for this application, and the end result i want to achieve, the factory manifold wont be ideal, but as 4000GT said, it certainly is easier and the opportunity cost of that money is considerable. Does...

    LX470 with TRD S/C: K&N FIPK kit?

    Good luck with it Crushu, where abouts are you based? 200KW should almost smoke all 4 off the line, easy as, will be very very impressive!

    LX470 with TRD S/C: K&N FIPK kit?

    Yeah, a little pre-filter would be good, K&N's also get dirtier quicker than the factory paper filter, being oil based. What ECU are you running? 185kw @ all 4 is bloody impressive, must equate to at least 250-270 flywheel kw. Whats the limits of the 2UZ rods, i know they arent quite as beefy...

    1uzfe into BJ70

    No worries, cheers Freeman. How tough is the H55? Im using an R150 on mine. Edit: LT10, very nice. I'd be interested to know if you're using factory coils and ignition system, also injectors and any internal mods?

    Forward Facing Factory Exhaust Manifolds for turbo... Feasable?

    Yeah i know what you're saying Zuffen and, very until recently, i was concrete on making a manifold, however it is awfully convenient that the factory exhaust manifolds can be interchanged. I am told the SC400 manifold is the better flowing manifold of the bunch too. Either way, doesnt look...

    LX470 with TRD S/C: K&N FIPK kit?

    Sounds like a mean machine, good work! There is a rig in QLD known as 2 RUDE, a black V8 100 series with a top mount blower, it is a torque-steering weapon! This truck runs a Safari snorkel, hardly a perfomance mod, but does supply the motor with cold air, even if it has to negotiate the...

    1UZ into Jeep XJ Cherokee??

    True story, at least the jeep driveline should hold up fine on a stock 1uz, the 4L six in the XJ is a torquey donk. You'd have to get an "Its a Toyota Thing" sticker! Ha!

    Forward Facing Factory Exhaust Manifolds for turbo... Feasable?

    G'day guys! Im interested in seeing if anyone on here has used their stock exhaust manifolds, swapped over to face forwards, for a turbo setup? In my situation, this option is looking quite feasable, as the engine will be in a Landcruiser (bucketloads of room to play with), wont be running...

    1UZ into Jeep XJ Cherokee??

    Every time i look at a Cherokee or a TJ, i think exactly that. Only problem with putting a Tojo motor in a Jeep is... everything else is still Jeep! Haha, they're not bad, i've got a softish spot for them. At least you know when i Jeep is out of oil... it stops leaking!

    The Fish V2

    Mmm, thats some good looking fish. Good for you too, full of iron. Unfortunately, thanks to the 1UZ and this website, i cant afford to eat fish. As a result, i'll eat the stuff real brackets are made from. Cardboard. Mmm, cardboard. So structural, yet so tasty.

    Gas Prices

    Here in Australia, the government has offered a rebate for LPG installation, something like AU$1000, which is not too bad, still a big outlay though. How do aftermarket computers like LPG? I've never even thought about it...

    Auxillary Injectors using aftermarket ECU

    G'day ladies and gents! Has anyone set up secondary injectors on their 1UZ that are controlled by the ECU to come in @ a predetermined boost pressure? I have run this setup on another vehicle through a Microtech LT8 and am looking at a similar setup on a twin turbo 1UZ powered Landcruiser...
