    Running Shit over
  1. It was sold through turners auckland i think about a year or so ago from memory
  2. Got a mate that wired up his 1UZ into his hiace and will do for me with factory ecu and lexus box, Mounts can be bought off trademe, then all the little gay s*** but more than capable of doing the majority if not all of it at home myself so wouldnt be 2 bad. His one cost him $4k doing majority himself. Heaps more expensive if you pay a shop and run a link though I cant remember if the transfer case from the 1UZ powered landcruiser has the front output on the same side as the surf,if so get the engine/trans from one of these as the it will be AWD to... Can run adaptor plate on the lexus box to surf transfer case according to Kelvin from Cartune company so thats all good Would be way better in my opinion as an AWD yeerrr i was meaning you can run the lexus box with the surf transfer case to keep it awd.

Heaps more expensive if you pay a shop and run a link though Yea I worked it out to be about $5-5.5k to do the conversion myself with a w55-w59 G/B + bell housing adapter etc. So your about right if your planning to use the Auto, which won't be as much fun And yea worked out about 3.5k on if you went Link G4 + tuning costs. And about 5k in labour if you paid someone to do it all for you. In the end it just worked out cheaper to buy one with all the hard work etc done. yeah i can sell my old engine for a reasonable amount being the 1KZ so shouldnt cost f all at all. Auto just makes it easier by the time you buy a clutch, flywheel, pedal box etc, gearbox and all the bits and pieces lol

  6. Drove the surf on the weekend and htought how much better itd be if i just bit the bullet and 1UZ it lol
  7. woohhoo action koom ahha good things take time right haha along time in this case lol
  8. I dont have a subi so negative
  9. New thermostat and gasket turned up for the surf to replace the poked one.. Pulled other one out the other night not opening f all so out that goes.
  10. Not saying it definatly is but if its set up wrong it will do that at low speed. Unless the controllers playing up but i highly doubt that never heard of one failing.
  11. Is it a STI? If so is your dccd wound up on lock or a couple of notcheS?? cause this will cause it to shudder at low speed
  12. Probably all for the same reason, get away from subis haha
  13. lol i wish the amount of work iv sent their way over the years. You will pay a bit but at least you know itl get done right.. Would rather pay a bit more and get a good job personally. PF are usually pretty good also from what iv heard however never done personally. Oh to answer your original question to swap an engine is pretty straight forward not to hard at all.
  14. H&N is all iv got to say Go see Dave at Dtech and see what he has to say
