Jest aside, what are you needing it for? You going to swop the 3RZ for a Lexus 1UZ?

I like the 5VZ as well. Nice strong reliable motor, just the fuel economy that sucks. But then the 3RZ is not really better on economy either.

Your 3RZ must be getting a bit long in the tooth now and the 5VZ is a much younger series. Spares for this motor should still be available for a long time to come.

I have toyed with the idea of a 5VZ myself in the past, but the poor economy always put me off. Now with the recently bought SFA that has an old Essex V6, I might be forced to look at it again. The old Essex was a fairly good motor in it's day and a popular conversion but on economy it's useless (worse than 3RZ, 5Vz and 1UZ), and although it's been rebuilt I'm not going to throw money at it if it starts giving trouble.

The thing is that the old SFA box could handle the Essex because the power was not very much better than the original 4Y or 22R and if I were to go the 5VZ route when the time came to replace the Essex, I would have to change the box as well. Because of this I was thinking that the 4GR or 5GR may be possible options - they're both 2.5lit V6's and probably have less torque than the 5VZ, so the old box may be able to handle them.

Being a much younger generation than the 5VZ, they should perform pretty well by comparison and with better economy. I'm just wondering if you gave them any consideration?

To me performance is not the major thing. I like torque, if I never have to rev the engine above 3,000 rpm I would be happy.
George gets 8km/l with his Prado, I get between 6 and 6.5 with the Hilux. Fuel economy will either be the same or better.

We once towed an old Landy on a car trailer for Barrydale to Langebaan with George's Prado. The Prado did not notice the empty trailer on our way there and on our way back it did not battle with the Landy. Where my Hilux with 3RZ even battles with the empty trailer, not even to speak about the trailer with Landy.

My current gearbox is apparently strong enough for the 5VZ but I am after the lower revs of the KZ-TE and also as far as I could find out the KZ drives it's 5'th gear with a gear and my current gear box drives it with a chain.

If George do 120km/h in the Prado with the overdrive on, his engine runs about 2,500 rpm and the engine is happy there.

O ja, and I think the 5VZ is as ultra reliable as the 3RZ and reliability is also a main concern to me.

For my taste the 1UZ is too big, too wide, battle to get it in, battle to service and has too much power, start breaking things if not careful.

Makes sense, also why I don't want to go the 1UZ route when the time comes. Did you not even consider the 4GR or 5GR motors?
