We offer maintenance, overhauls, performance modifications and conversions
Engines need regular maintenance to ensure that they continue to run optimally for their designed lifespan. Whether it is repairing oil leaks on a 2F or installing a new timing belt and water pump on your 2UZ-FE, we have the knowledge and experience to make certain that any and all work on your Toyota 4WD engine is done correctly and efficiently.
Resurrecting old barn find trucks and keeping daily drivers running sometimes requires major engine work. From rebuilding a 2F that is seized or hasn’t run in years to replacing the head gasket on a 1FZ or performing fuel injector and injection pump service on a 1HDT, we have the knowledge and experience to do it right. We use only the best OEM/OEM equivalent parts and practice the required attention to detail that is essential to ensure optimal performance and longevity.
ENGINE PERFORMANCE MODIFICATIONS
Whether you are interested in bringing your old petrol 40 or 60 Series into the modern age with fuel injection or adding turbo performance to your diesel 70 Series or an intercooler to your 1HDT powered 80 Series, we have the components and experience to make your Land Cruiser, HiLux or HiAce more efficient and powerful than it has ever been.
There are a lot of reasons you may want to repower your Land Cruiser…more power, better efficiency, modernizing a classic. The list goes on and so do the options. From the purist that wants to keep the entire driveline Toyota to others that prefer GM LS power or even Cummins Diesel power, there are many options that can make your rig everything that you have always wanted it to be.
