Announcements and Tips / We're back UP!!
« on: March 12, 2008, 08:33:15 PM »
Sorry for the downtime everyone!  It was unexpected to say the least. 

Our previous host shut off our hosting without a good reason - some hacker put some phishing files on one of my sites - I found and fixed the security flaw.  Well, the files continued to reappear, indicating it was an INSIDE JOB.  If you know anything about Apache, you'd know about permissions and file ownership.  I had the permissions locked down, but they miraculously changed themselves!!  Their programmers are all from outside the US with full access to the file servers hosting over 200,000 domains.  Think this host has a time bomb on their hands?

When time allows, I'll put up a dedicated site for dragging those clowns through the mud.  Bastards - this of course had to happen while I'm on a week long trip!  I'll have the links for the photo album and links back up sometime over the weekend - we also updated the SMF software while we were migrating, so we have the latest and greatest version available.

Some of you know that I admin'd a large Toyota board called Yotatech. They are pretty big (20k members, 1m+ posts, 90k threads).

About 6 weeks ago myself and 4 other mods quit due to ethical differences with one of the owners. There's more to it, but that's the concise version.

We heard so many times from people saying that "if you don't like it, go start your own forum". Well, we did - but the new site isn't just a forum. We are creating articles, editorials, and other features and most importantly a tech wiki.

We opened April 1st (inside joke). Pop in and take a look around. We are still tweaking some things, but it is pretty much how it will be.

I've come across a number of FSM's online and am saving these for our member's use.  If you have anything to contribute or need something specifically, please PM me.

Stay tuned for a new section for these.

Wiring and Electronics / 1UZ Swap Wiring for stock ECU "Simplified"
« on: February 02, 2007, 10:23:45 PM »
SuperRunner already has his motor home running and has done the hard part in figuring this out.  He shared this over on Lextreme in my build thread. Certainly some great tech!

Quote from: SuperRunner on Lextreme
Now that's the easy part.

EB2 connector is a 3 pin connector and is near the igniter
EB1 connector is a 6 pin connector and is near the igniter
IJ2 connector is 17 pin connector near the ECU is dark gray, has 2 rows of pins.

You need switched power to EB2(2). This is a black and orange wire.
You need switched power to EB2(3). This is a black and red wire
You need switched power to IJ2(11). This is a black and orange wire.

You need constant power to EB1(4). This is a black and yellow wire


To start you need to supply "start" power to EB2(1) which is a black wire.

And of course you need to figure out what it takes to turn your fuel pump on. Different on every vehicle.


Now isn't that EASY!!!!

This is how you make it run!!

Now let's all breathe a collective sigh of relief...  Whew!!!!!

Mine came in with a big crack in it.  Since I'll be spending some effort on it to color match my motor, I'd rather have one with no blemishes...

This is the one that does NOT say anything on it.

Not yet for me, but I was reading a thread elsewhere about an engine replacement and there was a post about priming the oil pump to assure there was oil throughout the engine.

Since I'm popping my engine-swap cherry on this one, I was wondering what precautions need to be taken to assure there is no oil starvation at the first start up.

Anyone have some insight?

Announcements and Tips / Changed Servers Last Night
« on: January 09, 2007, 09:56:45 AM »
Hi all - I've been fighting with my hosting co. for a while now about the poor performance of the DB loading (latency).  The solution was to move to a different server within their facility.  I guessing this is one they save for pains in the ass such as myself who complains alot.

As you probably noticed, the forum snaps pretty quick now...  Hopefully the performance will stay like this...

1UZFE
Year: 1989 to 1997
Used in the Lexus SC400 and LS400 in the US as well as the Toyota Soarer, Celsior, Crown and Majestic outside of the US.

1UZFE (VVTi)
Year: 1998-2000
Used in the Lexus SC400, GS400 and LS400 in the US as well as the Toyota Soarer, Celsior, Crown and Majestic outside of the US.

2UZFE

Year: 1998 to 2006
Used in the Lexus GX470 and LX470 as well as the Toyota Tundra, Sequoia, Landcruiser and 2003+ 4Runner

3UZFE
Year: 2000-2006
Used in the Lexus SC430, GS430 and LS430 in the US as well as the Toyota Soarer, Celsior, Crown and Majestic outside of the US.


  • The 1UZ and 3UZ use an aluminum block, where the 2UZ uses an iron block. 
    The non-VVti 1UZ seems to be the "easiest" motor to swap due too the simplified electronics over the VVti model. 

This post will be added to over time.

Notice something common to all of these?   The pin positions for the various functions don't change on any of them...  Also - the drawings of the plugs for these are all the same.

I need to do another test fit, but if memory serves, my passenger cam cover was interfereing with the heater core bump in the firewall (slightly).  This was keeping the motor from being as far back as I'd like.  I think modifying one of the covers slightly will allow the motor to go back further while being slightly higher - thus making the oilpan mods less severe.

Time for another trial fit to see...

Saw it over on Lextreme - if the Tundra mount doesn't pan out, I'll be going this route...

SCORE!!  Ignitors on eBay - pair for $34.99 shipped...

I thought I was going to be paying through the nose for these.  eBay auction out of Oregon.    ;D

SC and LS are interchangeable, right?  (Geez I hope so)

That's right Smitherz - I'm calling you out!   ;D

I plan to do some powdercoating after seeing how great your engine looks.  I was initially inspired by Twisty and his color matched cam covers, but I like the durability of powdercoating vs auto paint

I'm going to get some finish samples from Tigerdrylac.  I want to come reasonably close to the body color on my 4Runner (dark blue).  My powdercoating will be handled by Loudin's Powder Coating

The question is, what parts make the most sense to powdercoat?  Cam covers is an easy one, but what else?  Upper intake - maybe lower too...
