    1FZE Naturally Aspirated Upgrade (270whp currently)

    I meant that one would ideally have a block with extra material in the cylinder walls already--to allow for an increased bore while maintaining long-term reliability.

    Are you running 12-15psi (0.8-1.0 bar)?

    1FZE Naturally Aspirated Upgrade (270whp currently)

    I think when you increase the stroke, you should ideally increase the bore. So your cylinder walls should be reinforced. Obviously you can't do that with the original block, so if you do a stroker engine, you should use a new aftermarket block with reinforced cylinder walls designed for stroker...

    Squishy Brakes going downhill

    I'd consider replacing the brake lines as well if you're flushing the system.

    First FZJ80, 97 40th Anniversary

    Love the progress so far. Are those Dobinsons springs? What kind of shocks are installed?

    '93 FZJ80, worth it?

    There's a reason why that truck has been on sale for 185 days. Priced way too high, even if it came with lockers. That being said, $2500 like zapatius mentioned is low. I don't know what the 80 market is like in Chicago, but in the Vegas area and without lockers, it'll fetch $8500 tops, mainly...

    Wonder If removed ABS hurts the value of the FJZ80 Land Cruisers

    That's a valid concern. I could certainly see an insurance company not providing coverage after a wreck if it found out that the ABS was deleted after the fact. Or, an insurance company charging more, or not offering coverage at all, if it were disclosed by the new owner that the ABS had been...

    New here bought an FZJ80 in terrible condition

    How difficult was it to install the WRX seats using the original hardware? Did you have to make any modifications? Thanks.
