    Hi Forum, If I understand it correctly the 1HZ is a more common engine globally than the 1HDT, so does that mean it's very easy to get parts for it here in the USA? Are 1HDT parts harder to come by?? and more expensive? thanks

    Automatic HJ61 12HT: MPG?

    Hey guys, I know MPG is always a tricky thing to get accurate... but do you think an HJ61 with factory automatic transmission will get 30mpg highway, 25mpg city? I'm thinking this is too optimistic, yes? The automatic transmission will eat up more power/fuel, yes? Thoughts?? thanks
