    What Edelbrock Engine is better for a H55F 5 speed transmission and 3.700 differential?

    Well I am making my choice or Toy or GM. With the 1HD-FTE & H150F is a lot of money. But with Edelbrock Engines and a good tranny (NV5600) I might save some. Any advice ¿?

    Hi-


    Edelbrock doesn't make engines... They make engine parts, but they don't make engines...

    I think you might mean a Chevrolet/GM engine.

    #1 Most of the confusion in this thread centers around your useage of the term Edelbrock. Please help clarify...

    #2 Please explain your application, FJ-40, FJ-55 ( NV5600 probably won't fit in a FJ-40)

    #3 Your usage.. Rock Crawler, Family Hauler, Mudder etc.

    #4 Which country do you live in? ( this affects availability of parts)

    #5 What's your price range

    #6 What are your mechanical skills? Or, will a shop be doing the work?

    Edelbrock sells small block Chev engines with Edelbrock heads, intake, carb, etc. so we're talking about Hi-Po SBC, right?

    Get the big one and twist your drivetrain into a pretzel. It's only money.

    :rolleyes:

    As mentioned before yes they do, it is not hard to find them in any JEGS or Summit magazine



    350 or 383 GM crate engine is all you need

    To PVCruiser: GM or Chevy or Edelbrock I am looking for power. The FJ43 is longer than 40, I have to verify if 5600 fits, you´re right, thanks. My Toy is for everyday use and offroad on weekends. I live in Colombia, South America. My budget is up 20 th US. I have a good mechanic to do all.

    Yes they sell complete engines as does Jeggs.

    But it's not an edelbrock plateform... It's a Chevy platform/bolt pattern.




    I wouldn't use an NV5600. I belelive that tranny weighs around 425 pounds while an NV4500 weighs only 200 pounds...

    Why not install a 1HD-T with an H151? Keep it toyota.

    If you want a performance motor why not: Jegs LS7 505 HP

    If you put that much power in an LC, you are going to exaggerate a week point.

    If you put a perfermance motor and a NV5600, you might want to upgrade the axles to Dana 60's.

    Sounds like an interesteing project. Good luck.
