Like Roy's famous words: "I should've just done 1J"

Had a few disappointments with the 1uz. Spent money trying to resolve them with no success. Time to spend money on something else.

What kind of disappointments? Just power? Or actual failures? I kind of want to try to push some power with the UZ, but the minimal support always makes me question it.

Power is ehhhh... first motor felt quicker than the second for some reason but rod knocked after 3 weeks. Replacement 1uz has a slight oil consumption issue... not bad but enough that I don't like it. Rebuild cost is rediculous only to get back to stock power. Supercharged costs are also steep only to get to 310ish wheel... easily obtained by 1j.

 

Cooling system did fine until high 90's in TX and I tried to run AC... then temps started to creep. Bought two Derale fans and made a new shroud... worked great but they pull too much amperage for my alternator to keep up.

 

Fuck it...

Only concern so far is getting carried away and twisting off a stub axle... getting another one out of Australia might be difficult

Picked up a MK4 W58 with bellhousing and clutch fork... we won't discuss how cheap it was as it seems to be a touchy subject...

Ordered motor mount brackets from Rich... should have them in my hands this week. Chris donated an a/c compressor for the new bullshit...

I'll need one... shoot me some details. I had already picked out an ACT clutch kit but I'll take a look at what you've got.

It's an RPS full face. I have to build this r154 I have and get it ready to swap in. Probably this weekend. I'll send you some pics if it still looks like it's worth something.

Nope... picking up the motor last to try to at least get a first start up within the 30 day warranty. Pointless to pick up the motor and let it sit while I'm accumulating the rest of parts
