    Is it possible without using a alternate method of induction?

    Robbie hand built an over-bored 1FZ with a bunch of fancy porting and such. That particular engine runs extremely strong, I do not know if it has been on a dyno. I can tell you that to pay somebody to do what he did for himself would break the labor bank.

    Chopped liva I am.... :flipoff2:

    A 50hp increase is a reasonable expectation for a mildly worked over 1FZ. I'll post up some mud links if you want to learn more...

    I have been following your posts about the rebuild, nice work!very well thought out.

    How much has your rebuild cost so far? (not the $$$ in machine work) just the price on the 1FZFE rebuild.

    Normally aspirated 1FZ - add 80hp JDM spec

    So far my LX still runnin stock 4.5 liter no blower, no turbo, no twin turbo.Just added couple JDM stuff as I described below;

    JDM hi air flow intake system - Additional air flow increases the engine's efficiency and power output by increasing the quantity of the air/fuel ratio.

    JDM cat back exhaust system -Construction is mandrel bent tubing for performance and 100% T304 stainless steel (polished tips, end pipes and mufflers, matte piping)

    JDM computer EPROM upgrade- By changing the air/fuel mapping, removing the top speed limiter, increasing the rev limit.

    JDM exhaust manifold- Expect an increase in horsepower throughout the RPM range with the greatest gains at higher RPM's. The car remains driveable and noise level is increased .Stainless steel and optimum heat dissipation. Features Mandrel bends, Dyno tested design. Benefits: Optimum flow characteristics, long life and excellent heat dissipation, expect up to 16-20 hp.

    Looks nice. But isn't heat dissipation the opposite of what you want from an exhaust manifold? I believe you want to keep as much heat INSIDE the exhaust as possible. If it is dissipating from the manifold then it is getting into your engine bay.
