    Ek hoor jou Grips, maar met die 1VD 4.5 V8 sit jy met common rail enjin.
    Erens gaan jy pomp en inspuiters moet doen en op common rail is dit baie duur....... X 8 natuurlik.

    Re: LC 80... How about a Cummins 2.8 TB4

    If I were to go Cummins, there are way better options than that 2.8.

    If a 6bt would fit, that would be number 1, if not 4 bt turbo.

    Re: 1982 Toyota land cruiser fj60

    That 460 is a beast of a motor.
    When in the States back then, this was Fords biggest gas/petrol motor. Chevys 454 couldnt come close when towing.
    Neither with the diesels.
