Pretended to be helpful as Jasn00 and I wrestled the bloody BC5. Came unstuck trying to get the pipe from the WAIC to the turbo onto the blasted turbo...Wiretap turned up and got it on no sweat, then tidied up a few intake/vac lines we moogied up. From there it was general housekeeping sort of stuff, a spare battery in the boot because the fuel pump isn't getting power, and then.......turned the key 8) It runs, baby. It runs.

Exhaust, shifter cable, power to fuel pump. Then it's ready for compliance, WOF, rego, and a big fat bow on its bonnet for the sister's ever-approaching 18th birthday :o

Bought it, got 15kms home and felt the front right tyre blow apart. Put the space saver on, drove to the nearest tyre place and got ripped for the only 215 x 45 x 17 he had...Kingstar for the win.

Smiled the entire way home at how beautiful our new car is.

Frickin excellent ;D That's what it's about, huge grin over the new baby!

We upgraded Leonidas from 'running' to 'driving' :) Wiretap did a few bits on it...I just got in the way and damaged my hands lots :P Now needs a bottle of ATF and an exhaust. Then it's doneburger.

Drove the surf on the weekend and htought how much better itd be if i just bit the bullet and 1UZ it lol

/quote]

Doooo eeeet! Although it is defo not cheap by any means. Buying the engine is pretty cheap but all the rest of the mucking around adds up quite fast.

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 shit 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...
