      the EGR creates all the gunk in the inlet plumbing. with PCV the inlet plumbing stays clean with a light coating of oil, deposits can build up on the back of the inlet valves though, especially on city vehicles.

      chapel gate reacted to jellis's post in the thread anyone running a WINK turbo? with Like Like.
      I've been running one for three years at ~25psi max without an IC. Pros: It'll blow your mind vs. stock, no doubt about it. But that's also easy to accomplish from stock! I run my rig super hard towing a built out ~4000lb M101 military...

      I have a 97lx with approx 315k miles. I strictly take it to a highly respected indy shop for service and request only oem parts. I've owned everything from a 64 vette, DB9, 2000s wrangler, volvos and about 25 more cars in between(only sharing...

      That's not a factory turbo hz. This is.:

      There are a variety of factors at play, Toyota's reach and resources chief among them. In my opinion, the design itself is a winning formular. Solid axles front/rear, fully boxed frame, coil springs in each corner, and disc brakes all around...

      I made some parts to adapt the factory 80 series shifter to an A750 auto. I didn't like the bulky center consoles and floor cutting associated with putting the 100 series shifter in an 80. I can put this kit together on a case by case basis right...

      chapel gate reacted to mudgudgeon's post in the thread 1HZ vs 1HD-T - Pros and Cons with Like Like.
      In comparing a 1HZ and 1HD-T, saying one is simple as a plus is kind of pointless. The two engines are 95%+ the same. Simplicity is equal

      chapel gate reacted to Dougal's post in the thread 1HZ vs 1HD-T - Pros and Cons with Like Like.
      The 1HZ uses more fuel to produce more heat and less power. The higher compression and weaker pistons mean it must be run carefully with a turbo. It makes no sense to take that if you have the option of a factory turbo engine. 1HD-FT is your...

      chapel gate reacted to sodafeld1's post in the thread 2h toyota engine with Like Like.
      I bought 2 x 2h unknown condition engines last year for $600 aud + a shonky diff together. Not long before that a complete wreck hj75 troopy with unknown 2h for $2500aud. I like the 2h due to simplicity but the hz is probably a better engine...

      The old 91 ran like a champ to Vancouver Island, Squamish, Whistler and back. Only issue was a blown fan belt at Tofino, but she never stopped. Stopped in Edmonton on the way home at Four Wheel Auto and gave her three hours of attention.

      chapel gate reacted to Nemesis1207's post in the thread Toyota 1HD-FT vs 1HD-FTE with Like Like.
      It all depends on what you value more, power, simplicity, reliability, self-maintenance, etc. Sure, the FTE is the more efficient powerful engine. No question. Doesn't mean it'd be my pick when fording a river, crossing the simpson desert, or...

      Boosted Diesel Services in Western Australia has done them… (on Facebook). I wouldn’t have a clue of injector pressures In my opinion (and experience), a computer affects reliability… the 1HD-fte has, as you have said 20+ years of proven...

      chapel gate reacted to IanB's post in the thread What boost controller are you using? with Like Like.
      On these old turbo diesels, the boost controller is used to set the max boost pressure before the wastegate opens and bleeds the extra pressure off. It's a "set it and forget it" step in the overall tuning of these engines. The balance of...

      chapel gate reacted to mudgudgeon's post in the thread Toyota 1HD-FT vs 1HD-FTE with Like Like.
      So some searching in this forum. Why upgrade the power? Why not. You could argue that utilising the engine's inherent potential with an increase in torque and power output means the engine is not labouring as hard as a less tuned and optimised...

      chapel gate reacted to Silveredition's post in the thread Toyota 1HD-FT vs 1HD-FTE with Like Like.
      In Australia there are a few (lot??) of electronic fte to mechanical conversions… I am unsure if the workshops carrying out these conversions would do so if the benefits weren’t worth it… (I don’t have one) I have owned a 2h, 1hz (with and...

      chapel gate reacted to Dusten's post in the thread 1HD-T oil leak with Like Like.
      It's not an egr issue. It's a pcv issue. And it's not even a 1hdt issue. Almost ever rig with forced induction and a pcv would benefit from a catch can.

      Oil in the intake is normal. Search for catch cans

      The best value IMO on Toyota diesel is a good low mileage engine from @chapel gate in the UK and purchase a new H55f/transfer case combo and all the associated parts (bellhousing flywheel/clutch) in the US from a knowledgeable vender like...

      As far as factory specs go The best market for an 80 series RHD would be Japan no doubt. They get access to ALL configurations and options for their market. LHD I'd say G.C.C spec would offer the most in options and configurations for gas...

      Well only since you asked.. I have myriad reasons for a lack of interest. Please note: I'm not the guy who will denounce or crap on electric cars (at their face value), I just don't find them appealing. I'll explain. 1- At the risk of sounding...
