Sadly not an oil burner, but check my sig line or post 12 of my bio for more info

I had never heard of a turbo in a 1FZ-FE, just SCs, but after reading that thread on Mud referenced in the 2006 thread from your sig line, I see that they do exist!

Then you must not have checked the back cover of your Toyota Trails from Mar/April 2000 to Nov/Dec 2002 when Man-a-Fre had an advertisement running there for them!



There are no factory turbo 1FZ-FEs. Every turbo 1FZ-FE is an aftermarket system. Years ago the Safari System was sold through MAF and Slee. The story goes that there were originally 25 units sold. Since Safari was/is an Australian company I am not sure anyone knows the numbers of how many were sold in Australia. There have not been many/any Aussies posting on MUD about Safari Systems. Today Christo has the AVO setup available as well. Everything else is custom, though the UAE guys and others have prompted a couple different turbo manifolds to be produced by treadstone and maybe some others.



I think most of these Land Cruisers are running turbo'd 1FZ engines, obviously custom ...

Finally dove into my cooling system issue. Wrong thermostat, installed upside with no o-ring. Go figure.

Yay heat!

New OEM taillight, swapped out the interior lights for LEDs and installed some stupid bright 7W Cree LED back up lights

That looks great Matt! Is it the Pfran kit? I am thinking about getting them for several of our trucks.

Yep I picked it up from Pfran. The interior lights are really bright, but I am not a fan of the harshness of the light color, so over time I am sure I will swap them out for something different. The gotcha was that a a similar kit with red or soft white LEDs from Super Bright or Autolumination, was easily going to cost twice as much as pfran's.

The reverse lights are SWEET!

Default New dash, heater, door panels and stereo system...

My son has this 81 hilux that the previous owner had destroyed the wiring and dash in. So, I built a wood dash and some crocodile door panels, added a new vintage air heater and quick rewire on the dash.
