Though I acknowledge those published numbers, when you drive a 350 lb. heavier 100, you could easily make the mistake that it has 100 more hp and twice that in torque over the lighter 80. That's why virtually no one complains about the 100 having too little power, yet MOST do about the 80.It’s funny, when you look at the numbers, the 2UZ isn’t that much more powerful than the 1FZ. It only gives you 40 extra hp and 35 ft-lbs.
The LS3 gives you an extra 240 hp and 150 ft-lbs.
Now, I'm certainly not suggesting the 2UZ is some sort of power house - and it has virtually no performance mods available - but it IS a Toyota engine that's easily capable of 500,000 miles, doesn't leak, doesn't use oil, etc. In my opinion, a 2UZ with an a343f would be the best Land Cruiser Toyota never made........plus, there are just those of us who want to keep our Toyotas all-Toyota
