This time it's for a paying customer.
This truck (1992 2.4 liter turbo diesel Surf. (4Runner) has a snorkel fitted.
The heavy duty red cables behind the fuse box are for  a winch.



Some photos showing how I utilised the stock Surf (4Runner) transfercase mount, may help somebody.



Oil filter relocation kit with stock LS400 filter...I welded a short piece of flat steel to the front chassis crossmember to hold the filter head.




another photo just to show that the stock LS400 fuel pump does not fit into the diesel Surf's tank opening...

Hey people, thought I start a thread to show-off my truck (originally a 2.4L turbo diesel) as there doesn't seem to be a members rigs section. ;)
Anyhoo, total modifications (so far....)

2" body lift.
Landcruiser rear springs which gives a 3" lift.
Pro-comp ES3000 shocks.
Torsion bars cranked up to raise the front.
Drop brackets for the panhard rod and rear sway bar drop links.
Rear wiper assembly removed for a cleaner look to the rear end.
Roofrails.
Side steps removed.
Ford side repeater lights on front fenders.
Rear spoiler with integral stoplight.

and of course, a 1uz-fe engine and A342e transmission. ;D

Hope you like.




Now lets see yours. :)

(click on picture for sound.)

Parts: Two 2.5" downpipes from the stock LS400 headers (no 'cats') into a 'Y' collector. 3" outlet into a single 3" in 3" out, straight through type muffler next to the fuel tank, then 3" pipe all the way to the back of the truck.

This is the type of muffler I used..... Oval H=140mm / W=220mm / L=420mm

Hope this is usefull to someone.

Happy to help. ;)

Hi folks, been browsing this site for many months, gathering information for when the time comes for me to dump my old asthmatic 97 horse power, 2.4 diesel motor from my '91 Surf (4Runner) and squeeze in the UZ.

Well the time came at the begining of october last year when I bought a 1990 Lexus LS400 real cheap off Ebay. The car was still MOT'd (Roadworthy test here in the U.K.) and had a fully Lexus dealer service history!
The car had only covered 100,000 miles, and apart from a few scuffs on the bumpers and a tear in the drivers seat, it was in pretty good condition. The seller was moving overseas and wanted a quick sale, and I just happend to live 25 minutes away, so I grabbed myself a bargain!

Anyhoo, I had a blast in the car and I gotta say, the power, and the smoothness of how the transmission delivered it was awesome!!
I totally stripped the car removed all the looms and ECU's carefully so that they are all intact as I'm going to use the Lexus dash in my truck too.
I'm also using the Lexus transmission too and I have done all the necessary modifications so that I still have 4WD, and it should all be just 'plug and play'

I'm also trying to make the swap as easy as possible, i.e. leaving the stock exhaust manifolds on and modifying the existing diesel engine mounts.

Below are the photos of the stage I am at now, the engine and trans. are in position and I just need to get it all wedged in and take measurements for the mounts. As you can see in the last photo, the stock header flanges only just clear the torsion bars, and the sump (oil pan) is spaced away from the relay rod a good inch and three quarters.
oh, and I got rid of the EGR stuff too.

p.s. Big respect to Cebby for this awesome website, I couln't have done this without it. ;D
