Boosting a 1FZ offers a lot of bang for the respective buck. The torque comes up quicker and reaches higher compared to a 2UZ while still being able to spin up and provide increased power. If I had been able to find a sub 150k OBDII 1FZ I would have gone that route with my 60's swap rather than the 2UZ, but I couldn't, so I didn't. Unless an owner is looking to break the 300hp mark, I can't see a reason to go the engine swap route - a healthy 1FZ-FE long block is just too good an engine to move away from. Needs/wants for over 300hp and the whole game changes.

Between timing changes and cooling package size changes, I'd expect this turbo 1FZ heating nuisance on long grades could be avoided as well. As more of these kits hit the market I figure more of these types of solutions will start to hit the boards as well.
