Suddenly this set of crates showed up at my shop the other day, and the guy said "I think it's an engine" and helped me unload it. Magically, I opened both crates and it's a matching set: 1HDFTE Engine with 5 speed manual transmission with only 16k miles on them from the UK - Courtesy of G&S Cruiser parts

Someone is going to be very lucky, either by swapping this in to their 95-97 FZJ80, or their 100 series.

The engine doesn't currently have an owner, but for 12k and a few dollars labor :cheers: they can have this engine installed in their cruiser.

I'm drooling over getting to drive this monster, and even more about the job of installing it into - something...

i just looked up the specs on this motor. ~200 horsepower when intercooled and 317 ftlbs of torque with a broad power band sound pretty good but Im betting there is a lot more left on the table. What else do you plan to do to improve power? Can you just turn up the boost and adjust fuel and timing?

I prefer to leave things the way Toyota designed it, for longevity and reliability. Yes, there are always ways to increase power, but usually at the expense of the engine.
