It looks like a 3litre diesel Auto

That intake must add 20KWatts... :biggrin:

I saw this vehicle again today, so I left a card on the windscreen & the owner called me!

Nice guy named Mark, it was a 3.0l handgrenade... now has a healthy sounding Lexus powerplant.

I recomended he join the forum, hope we see him soon.

Actually not, on good grounds too

The 1UZFE is aluminium, not good for anchoring at all.

On the other hand a diesel is cast iron, brilliant anchor!

Dawid, good soul, is about as biased as a swivel chassis.
