    I agree, I have the luxury to being near junkyards that specialize in Toyota's and Lexus, the V-8 can be had fairly cheap.

    Is there a bellhousing/adapter to connect the 1UZFE to an H55? Everything I have read points to using an H151 for a 5 speed manual.

    Yes, a buddy of mine created a CAD file for the bellhousing design and Dellow in Australia cast and machined it. He and I both have the bellhousing, his is installed and running .

    What do you guys think of combining old and new. I have a 82 bib and bezel and a pair of 73 aprons with the marker lights.

    Yes , and I bought a set of new emblems and marker lights. I think it's a great look. Besides it's getting a 4Plus rear bumper an ARB front bumper, it's not a restoration.

    Ordered SS headers and SS exhaust parts for the 1UZ from AT Racing today and motor mount kit from North West Toys in OR , they are 1 and 2UZ experts. I have the 2F for sale and i might drive the truck as is for the spring if it doesn't sell. It is a nice truck.

    Yes very simple. I have two more marine ECU's with wire harness , fuels pumps etc. and I have a guy checking to see if I can run an auto 1UZ with them.
