Life For me Has it's UP'S and DOWN'S........ I fix ELEVATORS
Ive seen this at Liverpool KK.
I seriously thought it had an XR6T motor in it from the plates
An 8 second street car, that looks nice and sedate.
Let me know if its ever for sale.
Credit where it is due, well done!
Ive been very critical of these motors but you guys are gettin it done
Xr6t ute 292rwkw 12.9 at 108mph
ALLMTR thanks mate. they are great engines, as long as it's done right. for every good 1 u probably find 5 or 6 that weren't. we got told alot of things like u will never make power with the factory lower manifold (proved wrong) and the engines twist (not yet :yup)
Every one raves about them but i a have yet to see those results. How many turbo uz's have run 10's? How many 4.o litre falcons have run 10's? The latest zoom has a nitrous uz that makes 320rwhp with 150 shot. . .

no way I would head down the 1uz path NA, the power just isn't there without redoing everything, compared to an LS1, but it looks like for forced induction, with reasonably simple mods these things are starting to get the job done, much more so than a stock blocked 304 / ls1 / 302 etc could.

it's funny u know, about 6 or 7 years ago my other brother started doing a 2JZ, he was the first to have a 2J drag car in Oz, everyone was like 2J who? it's never gonna work then it ran mid 8's @ 150+mph and that was with a stock motor just a turbo bolted on we all know what 2JZ's are doing now
even today i am copping it for the engine im doing a 4.6L modular, they have proven to make 2000+hp in the US and have run 6.2's @ 230+mph. but people don't believe me, even the guy helping me with the engine build finds it hard to believe so i have to prove him wrong just because some people have got it wrong doesn't mean that it can't be done, if it's done right.
you'd be surprised what the 1UZ can make NA yes it's dear but we are talking 4L engine, thats 60+ci smaller than it's nearest rival.

Theres your answer. There is a fraction of development and dollars in UZ aftermarket compared to anythng Falcon/Commodore related or JZ/RB whatever. Up until recently anyone doing any serious builds on these was doing it off thier own bat (Ed for example) so not everyone got it right.
Regardless, plenty of sub-10s UZs around...

i can rattle off a few plus 1000hp setups, but as is the usual story, not many details on whats in them. most are in the UAE, some in NZ, only a few in aust, some in US. paul careys comes to mind in WA, but started blowing blocks apart at 6.7sec and 1400hp odd. hes now made a billet UZ block to go faster.
i dont know if people 'rave' about them, but theyre a decent engine for not much coin. problem is the loudest punters in UZ circles are often the ones with 150 shot and 300rwhp. doesnt do the thing justice. also hampered somewhat historically by poor SC setups being all the rage, and they made SFA power. the circle jerkers over on lextreme also dont do much to improve things.
but yeah, theres engines out tehre, just not heaps of em. mainly due to 'bigger' better options being available, with off the shelf parts.
i think that's the thing, some cunts are unwilling and don't want to share info with each other or the info they share is wrong. people are getting exploited because they are being told they need these big $ items or it's not going to work and because they don't know better they do it. wegot stung also we paid $1000 for a set of cam gears, i paid $250 for mine they are full CAD designed and u can tell alot of work went into them. for $1000 u would be expecting something pretty top notch, they looked amateurish and the things weren't even made rght. Dave Stevens (ex-GAS motorsports engine builder) helped us put them on and do the timing. he just laughed when he seen them, he said if he knew they were going to be like this he could have made us a set for free
everything in the engine apart from the rods (Argo), pistons (Ross) and cams (Tighes) is factory stuff. we were fortunate, Joe's engine builder of 20 years started tinkering with the 1UZ's about 11 years ago doing them for boats etc, pretty much what is used in our engine was what Greg was putting in the boat engines, which copped alot more punishment than this engine ever did. the factory valvetrain is quite tuff so y spend money unnecessarily if you don't have too.
i spoke to Paul from WA a few weeks back just after we did the E85 tune, had a couple questions to ask which he was happy to answer.

took the lil nugget down to the Summernats, she did ok this year took home Engineering Excellence in Pro Tuff Street. 2nd best performance there in 2009 she came home with the same award plus 2nd Overall in Tuff Street. was good to see alot of people knew the car and the ones that didn't were freaking when they found out it was only a little 4L V8 making 1100hp and running low 8's.
we had a good long chat with Joe Gauci number 1 in APSA Mod Street Blown (he took the PROFAB Cortina down came 2nd Comp Tuff) and we are looking at running a set of Precision turbo's in the very near future, we are going to try a larger back with the GT35's first then more likely make a switch to the PT67's but that may not be till the end of the year. spooling may take slightly longer but hopefully we can work something out.
hopefully with the rear housing upgrade, CDI and setting the boost up properly when staging at the APSA event at WSID in May we can pop out a 8.0-8.1 we are going to try and set the ass end up to see if we can get it to launch without lifting too much, we prefer not to have to put wheelie bars on.
lil bit of an update, we did a photo shoot for Street Machine yesterday, we had been approached by them for a while but we didn't want to do anything until the car had proven itself, we thought it was time. we took the car down to Wollongong as they wanted the coal terminal as a backdrop, we found an old abandoned site. fortunately it was an overcast day which made taking photo's of a black car easier. the photgrapher Thomas was a real nice guy made the shoot nice n easy, he said the pictures are gonna look really good, he was very happy with them. he went for a drive in the car, was only on it's pump gas tune (700rwhp) but he left with a smile on his face. also big thanks to Steve from Peck's Towing, we were going to drive her down but Steve came along so we threw her on the back of the tow truck. here's a couple pics i took, far from professional
he wanted Joe in a sexy George Costanza-esque pose for the owner's car shot, it was hilarious we had to take our shot also
some nawty person left a powerskid :lol
Project Seven or Project Beat John (our other brother run's 8.0@174 in his 2JZ Corolla) continued today, we are stepping it up. Joe needs to go a little faster, he is a bit bored with 8.3's so we have stepped up the rear housing we went from .63 to a 1.06, with these housing each turbo should be good for 700hp each, we were maxxing out the .62's, 1060hp at the engine. with these turbo's we are hoping to see a 30-50hp gain just by the bigger housings, we hope squeezing in another 5psi (30psi total) on the E85 will give us the extra 100hp that we need. going off the calculators we need 1200hp to just break into the 7's. we changed the housings today, because the housings are larged it just misses off the intake pipe. though we are going to change that so there is more clearance. car is back into Rigoli's this week, he will put in a new EMS CDI, the extra spark should help with the E85. we also need to setup the boost solenoid, the boost will sit at around 18psi while we are at the lights staging, soon as the transbrake comes off then the rest of the boost will come in. hopefully on the weekend she will be re-tuned.
size difference between housings
nice car mate and obviously very well engineered and executed!! Looks like some dollars and time went into it. Would love to see it go!!
Breaking stuff once is ignorance, twice is stupidity, three times is racing
here's a video of his 8.34@164 run, at the moment that is his best PB. hopefully with the mods will see it get faster and run as str8 and smooth down the track as it has been.
Neil from Rush Imprts just ran a 10.7@133 with his stock 1UZ with Holset Truck turbo.
we did a lil work also on ours this weekend, took the car down to V&E Rigoli, we had Vince install a new EMS 250mj CDI for us, we were going to start pumping some serious power and boost out of the car soon so we thought we better be prepared.
it was time for tuning as we installed the bigger exhaust housing on the turbo going from a .63 to a 1.06 but it sure wasn't the best day for it, dyno area was 35.5 degrees celsius and 27% humidity so we weren't expecting big numbers. the engine breathed alot better the idle was up 400rpm over usual. being so hot and dry we weren't expecting too much. the combination of the new EMS CDI and the bigger housings saw the little girl keep asking for more fuel, almost 20% more than the previous E85 tune, and that tune was on a cool night not a hot day like this.
after a bit of fiddling around and the intake pipe blowing off on the first run it was time to turn up the wick, 25psi she rattled off an 810rwhp (605rwkw) 26psi - 833rwhp (620rwkw) and now this was were the bad luck came in. we completely forgot to get new springs we only remembered Friday. being a Turbonetics RaceGate it's harder to find springs compared to the TurboSmart stuff, so we were stuffed. we couldn't get the to boost to go any higher than 27psi we wanted to go to 30psi, however at 27psi it made 867rwhp (646rwkw) the turbo's just wanted more boost, picking up 23rwhp then 34rwhp each lb of boost we went higher. the power was just waiting to come, unfortunately our bad memories let us down needless to say we are still happy, considering how hot the day was, we think it should see 900rwhp (670rwkw) on a nice cool night, where it can use all that fuel. we compared it to one of the previous E85 27psi tunes with similar AFR's and well im sure u can see how much of a gain was made with half a psi less.
because of the bigger housings the turbo's come on about 500-700rpm later. we stalled it up just on the footbrake and it seemed to come on just as fast as it did before, so we are happy about that. we were worried putting so much bigger rear housings on a 4L it will be very laggy. but it drives and feels just as good. was also good to get proven right she made power all the way to 7200rpm with the smaller housing it was choking power at around 6200rpm.
had we had a nice cool day and the wastegate springs, we are confident of seeing close to 950rwhp (710rwkw) on 30psi. Vince had some of his Methanol out, it was very tempting to just throw some in, and see alot more :lol it won't be enough to run our 7-sec pass next Saturday, but we should run an 8.0-8.1@168+mph which will see us back into the APSA Top 10 for Modified Street Blown. this little 4L Lexus/Toyota engine is an absolute animal, as Vince and a couple guys said put a Manual or an Auto gearbox that has less driveshaft losses it would see at least another 100rwhp (75rwkw) at the tyres, if only Ford's ZF was as good as a PowerGlide for racing we would do the swap :lol
a big thanks to Vince for his expertise in tuning and electrical work. also EMS for the fantastic 250mj CDI.

NEW PB yesterday, put in a couple more PSI showing around 900rwhp now. promising thing is still more left in it. ran a email@example.com backed up with a 8.27@165 (this pass was coughing and spluttering) should see an 8.1 possibly 8.0 by the end of the year
wheelstand & 165mph incar

Nice work. I love the sound of this, you would think it had alot more than 4 litres on board!
Hr under construction
Such a well setup car, just keeps getting better/faster.

Congrats on the pb
It's come a long way from the mid 10 small block windsor car it was good work . I''ve asked Joe if he wanted to part with this car on one then more occasions I don't think he ever will.
20B power 500rwhp @ 15 psi pump fuel more to come
7HEAVN thanx. has come a long way, he has always got the right people behind it to help if he couldn't do something himself, he never had a problem asking someone who could. 22 years he has owned the car, its like his little kid i don't think he would ever sell it.
in 22 years apart from engine changes and the green stripe about 4 or 5 years ago, it hasn't changed till now. runs the V6 bonnet, looks more stealth
some pics from the weekend, thanks to dan_b from FF
