    You spelt turbo wrong

      I honestly don't see any other way.

        Haha I think turbo V8 might be pushing it in terms of legality. Anyway I already have a turbo A6 so it would be cool to have this one be atmo and not slow.

        Anyway this is likely way off in the future, at minimum I need to get the 4runner done first. And I have to actually find a suitable engine for sale, and surprisingly it's nearly impossible to find a 3UZ or even late VVTi 1UZ for sale anywhere. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places but they seem to be very thin on the ground?

          Out of interest, why 1UZ for the 4Runner and 3UZ for the RA65?

          Comment


            The 1UZ apparently came out of a 4runner and so should be fairly easy to just slot into my 4runner. That and I can't actually find a 3UZ for sale yet!

            Also there's a possibility of turbo in the 4runner's future, and an early 1UZ is more suitable for that.

                My friend Dave has a 3UZ, 6 speed auto, loom and all the immobiliser bullshit for sale if you're vaguely interested.

                  Depending on price, very possibly!

                    Do it as a V8. Drive it home. Turbo. Who would know?

                        Having been a passenger in a 1uz manual car weighing approx 1200kg. It felt fast, but kind of lame.

                        200rwhp isn't much to write home about.

                          Yeah but is it more than 185rwhp?

                          I expect a 3UZ would be considerably better than an early 1UZ, but certainly it won't come close to a 2JZ + big single.

                            Can I change my vote?

                            2JZ + big single for the Celica!
