>Years ago I had read that the 2F engines used in later model FJ60s had more horsepower >and ran stronger than late 70's 2F's is there any truth to this ??

I would argue they rev a wee bit smoother, and most seem to be in better shape at 175K miles than an earlier 2F, but they are not appreciably more powerful. I would not swap a good running older 2F for a '81-87 2F just for imagined power gains. You do get a better distributor, an oil cooler, and a few other nice-to-haves, but the difference isn't monumental. Others may feel differently.
