From my understanding the 1KZTE is a better engine; more of a light truck engine. 3C-T is smaller and more of a car engine. I'd pick the 1KZTE hands down.

ya it can be maintained in the us, just need to be patient when you order parts as youll have to order them from overseas. also get yourself a repair manual as youll probably have to doa good amount of the work yourself

I was also told 3c- t has problematic head gaskets ?
