Lexus V8 Conversions

Interesting that so many guys complain about fuel consumption of the Lexus V8.... what about the 2.2, 2.4, 2.7 and 4.0V6 of Toyota? Don't that engines also give in the ball park of around 7km/L. Just my thought on it[emoji51]

Re: 1989 FJ75 Land Cruiser steering upgrade?

The wondering and hop. Specially on round curved roads. I know its a lot of factors contribute to it. But i can feel the steering box have a bit of play also. So i collect some ideas while i do the leaf to coil conversion.

Re: 1989 FJ75 Land Cruiser steering upgrade?

Yes Knuppel i have power steering, i busy with conversion from leaf springs in front to coils. So im getting opinions about the steering to stay OEM just to restore it or go maybe for rack and pinion. Most replies to stay OEM

Re: Engine replacement

I agree with you, it can be done. The electronics is the nightmare, going for standard electronics and engine goes into limp mode when not all sensors are correct very sensitive. Import aftermarket electronics that you must program and wire yourself at very very high price. So yes i think thats why ...
