Just finished another one!
« on: January 01, 2010, 02:15:24 PM »
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...

Good work. I'm sure the new owner is happy now having 10x the power of the old engine!

Hi Bushwacker,
Just a query re the oil filter relocation. Did you use a sandwich type adapter ( round one) at the original oil filter location or an adapter right in at the block (that's an out of square shape)?
Thanks
Tom

Hi Tom, this is the kit I used.....
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/TRD-1113?autofilter=1&part=TRD%2D1113&N=700+4294907647+115&autoview=sku

The round adapter screws directly to the block using the threaded nipple supplied. The V8 is from a Celsior and didn't have the oil cooler behind the oil filter.

Hope that helps.
Vince.
Keep on truckin'!

..........and another, this one is #6.  ;D




I'll post a sound bite soon.

 The best (budget) exhaust diameter/configuration/muffler combo I've found to work best regarding sound, throttle reponse and power delivery from a stock 1UZ engine (1990 - 1995) is:

2.5" downpipes from the stock LS400 manifold flanges.

Two seperate 2" dia pipes the whole length of the vehicle. (with 'H' pipe mid-way.)

No CATs.

Flowtech Raptor muffler at the end of each pipe with 3" tailpipes exiting the rear.



Oh, and the longer you can make the inlet tract, as in the photo, the more torque the engine seems to make.
