    Default TLC 80 Series Swap 1UZ-FE

    Assalamalikum everyone , I just bought a land cruiser 80 series (4.2 Diesel) but i think its underpowerd and i was thinking to convert it to Petrol . Now as i have researched , am interested in 1UZ-FE ( vvti or not ) to swap in my cruiser . My Questions are :

    1. What about the transmission? Will it work with my current one ?
    2. 1UZ-FE is a Rear Wheel drive engine and the cruiser is all time 4wd ( as far as i know ) so will it work with the 4x4?
    3. Is it an easy just bolt on swap or there would be some cutting or anything like that ?
    4. The prices here are quite high as compared to Ebay. VVTi is for 250k to 270k here . Will importing the engine be better ?

    Thanks.

    Regards .

    And one more thing , I was planning to change the shocks and coil springs and install the ones in Land Cruiser Cygnus 2006 . Will they give out the same performance as Cygnus ? And what about cost ?

    Well they say 1uz is not suitable for 80 series. 2uz with its auto gear is way to go it will require cuttin etc. other option will be 1fz-fe it will fit bolt on.
    for suspension get iron man nitro shocks or old man emu nitro shocks

    These days it should not be a problem, a lot a 1UZs are finding their way in the TLC40s and other vehicles.

    1. Yes your transmission will work fine with a 1UZ

    2. The 4X4 in not dependent on engine. It needs a transmission which you have full time 4X4 should not be an issue at all.

    3. I think some cutting pushing and shoving will be required for the swap. And you will need to fabricated an adapter plate to couple the gear to the engine.

    4. No idea bout the price but I think it is not as expensive as you think. You need to do some first hand research.

    Sir the adapter plate is called hosing or housing ( something like that ) by the mechanics ? is that the same one?

    I actually haven't taken such a swap, but Bell Housing is somthing different to Adapter Plate.

    I think there are two ways of doing it(gurus please correct me if I am wrong) on is to some how find the way of attaching the bell housing of the 1UZ to the 80 series box which might be a bot tricky the other one is making an adapter plate.

    But I have seen quite a few engine and gear marriages thru adapter plate.

    You can go thru this thread it might answer some of your questions.

    The 2UZ should be more suited here than the 1UZ, although the 1UZ vvti should be almost close to the 2UZ. Torque is more relevant than BHP here as 80 is a heavy car...

    Auto and Manual gear should both be possible, though not without modifications....

    @SuhaibKiani

    Market value doesnt matter , specially of these old models . My question is

    1UZ vvti is 300 torque and 2UZ is around 311 , but on the bhp vvti is 300 although 2UZ is around 236 , dont u think 300 torque can handle LC ? because on the other hand the vvti has 300 hp , thats quite alot

    Secondly , where can i get 1UZ vvti in that range of 120's ? And how about mating a 5 speed automatic transmission ( taken from 2UZ ) to the 1UZ ? How much that transmission will cost ?

    Have a 80 with 1 fzfe and will only recommend u the same. No modification needed. Petrol gears and diesel gear have different ratios u are better off putting in a engine tranny for a better ride.
    Lc 80 k genuine electric ahock dalwah lou which are for 45 grand. Sports and normal setting will give u both soft and hard ride.

    Hmmm, actually Salman is right that the simplest of conversions should be the 1FZ, but obviously the financial proposition for a 1FZ engine and gear is something to think about.

    1UZ vvti (with its auto gear) is available from Haji Zaman in Rawalpindi for around 125k. The auto can be mated on some Prado and Surf gears without any coupling but in all likelihood would need a custom made coupler (which is somewhat more complex than an adapter plate) between the auto gear and the transfer case. I am not sure how lastable this jugaar is, but there is a conversion ongoing on a Land Rover and I will post some pics in a few days....

    The 1UZ vvti vs 2UZ is a long discussion, but you are right in terms of there is a trade-off ad the 1UZ is interesting particularly if you are not doing heavy offroading with the rig...

    Best of Luck!

    yea turbo and super chargers are available for fz engines..by the way what do u mean by underpowered? if fz- fe or 1 hdfte is underpowered in a lc 80 than who told u a 1uz will work for u, as to my knowledge after u install 1uz in a lc 80 u will call 1fz over powered. If u want more punch out of ur lc 80 go for 2uz or 1fz fe with a charger/ turbo kit. Which engine is installed in ur cruiser anyway. 1hz/1hd-t or 1hd-ft.?
