Hi All,

My name is Kevin and I am trying to finish a 1989 hilux double cab. This project like many I embark on has been dragging its heels!

I have a few minor things that I need for the car such as aerial, lights etc.

Hopefully it will all come together shortly. Going to post some pics if I can figure it out.

Regards

Kevin

Hi there,

Ja it is a v6, wish it was standard. thinking of changing back. The v6 is very thirsty and takes the premium fuel which is getting harder and harder to find.

The original 4y does not use far less than a properly tunes V6. At least with the V6 you have more power for the same fuel you use.
