LOVED our trip in the 2,7

For long distance trips and mountain trails - DIESEL

for sand and power to pass on the long roads - 4.0


I doubt there is one engine for all purposes ....

There have been some 2700i engines successfully transplanted into SFAs as well, something else you could consider. I spoke to someone here in Klerkies a while ago and he was very happy with his conversion. A lot kinder on drive train components too.

I have driven all the engine variants in the SFA hilux and now have the lexus motor in. I dont drive any faster (or slower) than before but the power on tap is unbelievable if compared to the stock engine and it makes it so much more of a pleasure to drive. Overtaking is a breeze and hill climbing frustrations are non existent
