24Jul2005 (UTC +8) Need a bit of guidance here... what a better tow vehicle for a tow weight of 3,500kg (7,700lb but with trailer brakes) ??? A Safari turbo'ed HZJ-80 with the H150F tranny or an HDJ-80 with Safari intercooler and H155F tranny? Which has potentially more power and can last longer? Do note that the 1992 HDJ-80 currently has no intercooler for its turbo. The 1HD-T engine has a lot of similarities with the 1HZ, but it's said to have piston skirt cooling while the 1HZ does not. The 1HZ does have higher compression ratings though so that's better for engine braking. The HZJ-80's H150F has lower gearing than that of the HDJ-80's HDJ-80, so that's better for pulling power. I ask because I want to know this before I commit to restoring my 1992 HZJ-80 to its former glory, and at the same time an acquaintance is selling a nice HDJ-80 to me (and if that happens I need to sell the HZJ-80).
