    MT_T4R's 87 4Runner BHW Swap

    I’ve got a complete BHW in the garage for that purpose. I’ve not got around to doing anything with it but the IP mount would have to go on it. Probably would change the accessory layout

    Yeah, I’m terrible, but I have to live with myself. so, what do you pay for diesel down there?

    MT_T4R's 87 4Runner BHW Swap

    I also agree with Rick about tearing the engine down unless it’s necessary. Longevity is one of these motors greatest traits. You’ll have enough work and money invested without trying to match factory reliability with a rebuild.

    MT_T4R's 87 4Runner BHW Swap

    Never below 32.5, never higher than 36.6, hand calculated with a multiplier derived from running GPS for over 1000 miles. 29,000 miles and those figures have held true. I’ll agree, it’s boasting, but it’s also a fact. It also is primarily a road truck but does see some occasional beatings

    Ontario to Florida - Road trip stops?

    When I brought my Tahoe home from Florida back in ‘09 I ran in a pack of 3-5 vehicles much of the way. We ran between 80 and 90 much of the way (except at night through the mountains of Tennessee, the truck on my a$$ probably wanted me to). Anyway, things went well until I noticed a car parked...

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    If they do brake, much simpler to cut a flap or hole with a holesaw and tack new nuts in with a welder

    I think I just reshaped one

    Ontario to Florida - Road trip stops?

    I went through Atlanta once, I timed it for 3:30am. It was confusing enough with low traffic, Chicago times ten. I go through Alabama now

    The load is going to be distributed to whatever points of contact to the roof you have

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    I’ve found quickstruts to have inferior springs as compared to stock coils. Stock coils outlive a few strut changes generally, coils on quickstruts barely last the struts life

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    Are you replacing the main seal? You don’t have to remove the bolt to remove the accessory pulley. That bolt holds the timing belt cog to the crankshaft, no need to take it off for a timing belt

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    For comparisons sake, mostly 10-20f normally. -10 to 10 f for short stretches. Colder than -10 uncommon but not unheard of. We have three ALH’s on the road, only my Jetta has any type of issue starting subzero. It has one stuck glow plug not working that I’ve not bothered to get out. Not worth...

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    Went back to look, just what I said in a condensed form. If you want to try it and feel confident about, go ahead. It would be interesting how it affects the tune. If your only reason is cold starts, I would think making sure everything that affects that is in proper order. How cold of starts...

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    Changing cam timing moves the power band, advancing lowers it retarding raises it. Not really necessary or that noticeable unless you’re in competition

    My 1990 700r4, gasser, originally was an electric TC lockup. It’s since been converted to hydraulic lockup
