Re: Boetamac wanna go Lexus

I am down in Cape Town,and the three places importing them does not do wired-up units. If VVTi has these potential issues should i not rather opt to go 1uz-FE?

Any opinions on this idea?

But spitronics does mos a VVTi kit? Does these kits work properly?

Re: Boetamac wanna go Lexus

I have read plenty of threads on the 4x4's, but they had bodylifts and the sorts. my 4x2 dont have those luxuries.

so do i attempt this,or let it be???

The reasoning to go auto is i do not wanna go source flywheel,bellhousing,clutch and the likes.....

Goodevening Gents

I've been threatening to go 7m in my 1996 Hilux 2.8d Dc 2X4. I just tuned a 1UZ in a Mercedes sprinter , and it was awesome!

I am contemplating the 1uz in my hilux.

Question 1:Will it fit in a 4x2?
