      There's plenty of info here. I've also retro fitted them and posted snippets about it. Its easy enough if you have all the parts, and the skills. Requires some modification to housings. Cutting, welding grinding, drilling, tapping etc I'd say...

      Made some good progress today. Only one sheered bolt 🤬. Thank god it was an easy fix. Some things I learned today: The zip tie placement on the timing chain guides and sprocket makes life a lot easier. I made 3 adjustments before doing it...

      I'm a little late to the party but I'd have suggested that the OP pull the ECU harness with the engine because that way, you only disconnect the three or four large connectors at the ECU then pull the whole thing through the firewall. In any...

      Oh... and the the smallest, but most important part of the whole conversion... The shift knob!!! :cheers:

      Decided to swap the valve body from the 01 Sequoia a340e to the 96 a343f and do the transgo shift kit. now I have the correct wiring for the 2uz since there is no line pressure cable on the throttle body. Luckily I have 3 transmission to...

      I'm finalizing my 80 2uz swap.. had to fab up an intake. Gave up with the wiring and just going to have North West Toys down in OR handle the wiring adapters for the harness to support the 2uz. I'll have to update my list of things I did to get...

      I have the spirit, but I don't have the time. I hold a regular 9-5 5 day a week job and this is just a hobby. I also have a family that greatly misses me from doing conversions like this. Yeah I could probably make money, but I hardly think it...

      Wiring nearing completion. This next picture is not for those with weak stomachs. It is a mess now, but I assure it will clean up nicely.

      Motor came today. I was hoping it would come with the accesories, but alas it did not. :mad: Motor has 22,000 miles on it. I have already got the crossmember and the engine mounts completed with my mockup motor. This will go in tonight to...

      The 2UZFE does fit in a 60 body without any cutting. You have to use a Land Cruiser oil pan and not a Tundra oil pan. Then it clears the diff.

      Awesome..... it was more then powerful to move fj80. Lots more stability with less weight and lower center of gravity. alternator was not charging higher than 12.3v and battery took a dive. Had to swap batteries to get home. I would do...

      Made a fuse box in the engine compartment to house the ls400 fuse block out of an ammo box. Cost effective. Made base out of heavy grade stainless steel, welded bolts to the plate, then attached to fender. Silicone and self tappers to secure...
