I am thinking of pulling out my 1FZ motor (not EFI) and putting in the Lexus 1UZ FE motor.I know the 2UZ FE is the suv motor but that is R38000 (+-$3800) The 1UZ FE is only R5000 (+-$500) with auto box.So my question to all you Land Cruiser experts is this a good move? Is this the right motor or is it to high reving for off road work? My cruiser only works off road.

1FZ 140kw (not EFI. it has a carb with a drinking problem)

1UZ FE 195kw ( EFI so fuel consumption should be better)

the 1UZ will do the job .. and yes it's a much higher rev engine .. so take it in mind not only how much power it makes . .. also where ( which rpm point ) it mae it ..

In all cases you can compensate the lacks of low end torque with proper gearing ..

1UZ twin turbo would be interesting. :)

I have a parts car 93 LS400 with a great motor in it. Aren't these only 280hp/280tq though? It there really much difference or benefit in ditching the 1FZ?

The other option is just to slap the TRD supercharger on the 1FZ and be done with it.

Its a common swap here in Australia for the 1uzfe to go into a 4runner or surf however I know of only one being swapped into an 80 series and the feedback was only negative not enough torque to move the weight of an 80. It was eventually supercharged with an eaton M90 an even then wasnt much good. I can only find one such conversion.
