How does the 62 drive with the R2.8? What do you like/dislike about it?a 1HD-FTE will get the job done, especially with custom tune and G-Turbo. Not sure if the 5.0 will be the next available engine from Cummins, but I'm excited about it. I've been driving my R2.8 powered FJ62 for a while now and still really like it.
Problems initially were related to a poor install, and some problems were due to fuel problems (also install related). But some recent things I think are just because of the engine. Reading forums abroad I am seeing that a lot of people are having issues with it.relative to the installation or the engine itself .?
The 2.8 is great! I think it's a great engine and I haven't had a single hiccup with it. I'm sure there are some tweaks that can be done to the R2.8, but it meets tier 1 emissions with just a passive exhaust filter. The Duramax has urea injection and can run a more aggressive tune and still keep emissions standards.How does the 62 drive with the R2.8? What do you like/dislike about it?
What do you think of the Duramax 2.8L? Not sure if Duramax is selling crates like Cummins, but for the same size engine it seems to be higher performing.
Go 5.9 12 valve I am really happy with mineGood to know, and thanks for the reply.
Do you think if I'm looking for a diesel with comparable power to look into maybe a Cummins 5.0L V8? or any recommendations? I really want to stay with a toyota engine but the 1VD-FTV seems to be the only one with good power stats.
Depends on what exactly you want, most of the time you can put in some 860 OME and leave the stock ones in ,And it sits fine, I wanted mine taller and I am now using OME 860's with a 30mm spacer from Metal Tech, and heavies in the rear, I will be trying the 4" though because I want the heavies in the back for hauling stuffWhat's the minimum lift you needed to fit the 5.9? It's 4" right?
A bunch of us have used Dustins kit or parts of it, others have done the swap without his components. Even with all of his parts, there is still a decent amount of custom work you need to do when performing a cummins conversion.
Don't even think about a newer diesel engine which comes with the mandated emission control systems. DPF, SCR, DOC, EGR.Whats the opinion on the new 5.0 V8 cummins for those of us that need to pass emissions
That is odd, the only thing I had to fab/mod was the steering box brace and all of the tabs came in the kitA bunch of us have used Dustins kit or parts of it, others have done the swap without his components.

That's an interesting 1st post. Set aside $25k and then give Valley hybrids in CA a call.Hi i own 3 LC 80 ,'s 93 94 and 96. I love them all, but my 96 is my mountain goat. They all have 300 plus miles. Id love to put a diesel motor in my 96 if someone out there can help me find one that best fits this truck with as little conversion as possible. Please respond or call Mark 602 708-8163
