just thinking...and yes it hurts for you smart asses

is there two different 100 series turbo's...ie different power outputs...if so and other than for having increased power capabilities and increased fuel costs which would be better....what do the experts (and nissan owners ga have a go) say!?

also thinking of possibility of downgrading to 80 series turbo...not really a down grade as such, but making one to suit me without having swmbo say ..."please expalin" ..and doing it up to what I Want....company expense of course!...any advantage ? (I know 80's has & comes with less power from latest 100 turbo's)

There was no change in the specs for the factory TD 100 series. They came out in Oct 2000 and all had 151Kw and 430Nm. Motor is called the 1HD-FTE and is electronically injected, common rail, twin starting batteries, 24valve and runs sweet. All 100series TDs have the independendant front end which has issues when used offroad.

There were no factory TDs available in the early 100series (Mar 98 to Oct 2000).

80series had two factory turbo diesels. The early ones (1990-1994) were the 1HD-T (115Kw) mechanically injected 12 valve which had the big end bearing problems - the engine is a good one if you are willing to change the big ends every 100,000.

The later 80series (1995-1998) was the 1HD-FT which is a mechanically injected 24 valve. (118Kw/357Nm) These are often considered one of the best LandCruisers ever because they had that nice combination of 24valve factory TD and rigid front end. Many were autos, and the 80series Saharas had factory difflocks.

IMO the best new LandCruiser is the 78 and 79series factory TDs (IHD-FTE), as they are parttime 4wd/rigid front end and have the sweet, economical factory turbo motor - they are the cab chassis and troopie.

All these factory TDs are direct injection and offer better economy than the other available diesels.

you know your gear. Only thing wrong with the 78,79 TD is the lack of intercooler. The 1HD FT was dropped for the 100 with a td M.I.A for over 2 years must make you wonder why. Best td would be the 12ht - well the best I could afford anyway

Hi Davoe,

Couldn't agree more about the 12H-T. I had a HJ61 for about 7 years. Most reliable TD they ever made. The other figures are in my head because I changed vehicles late last year, and was tossing those choices around.

Yeah, Toyota skipped the intercooler (I'd guess for space/cooling reasons) and the power torque went down to 122Kw and 380Nm.

But.........that torque peaks at 1400rpm and the traytop is 500kgs lighter than the 100series TD. I find mine has heaps more power/torque than I need, so it isn't an issue.

Your setup looks interesting. Mine is coming along - just fitting out the aluminium canopy. I find the planning takes as long as the building/welding - too many options.
