All Turbo Diesel 100 Series are IFS, i think from about 2000 to 2001 onwards. You can buy a live axel GXL 1hz diesel manual only cruiser from toyota for $62,000 currently great model as you get all the benefits of the GXL with a live axel and permanent 4wd. The 1hz motor responds well to a snorkel and extractors and a fuel pump modification. Personally if i where in the market for a cruiser this is the one i would buy.

Sounds like you got yourself a good 4wd, I had an 80 series with the 1hz and did the following mods: Extractors and Exhaust, Fuel Pump Mod, Snorkel, K&N Air Cleaner, you can also fit a fuel filter that improves the diesel fuel quality the one with the clear tank i can't remember the brand. Anyway as far as the turbo on the 1HZ goes I would suggest to leave it off, the main bearing in the 1HZ motor can't handle the extra power of the turbo at times. The clutch should also be upgraded etc. Go the extractors and exhaust. As far as the fuel pump is concerned you can modify it as it is mechanical with no electronic controls very easily or at lest an expert can. The point being is that the performance of the fuel pump can be upgraded to run more efficently and offer alot more power to the motor. Basically a diesel specialist rebuilds your existing or current fuel pump and refits to the vehicle. I had mine done by Highway Diesel in Queensland (Brisbane) THe extra power i got was amazing especially in third gear. You can contact these guys and they can build you a replacement pump and you can fit it for yourself if you are able. Regadrless of weather you decide to go the turbo contact a few diesel gurus where you live and ask for some advice, i had my fuel pump tuned so to speak to offer more power with out going stupid on it just enough of a power increase to help the cruiser along but nothing that would damge the motor or fuel bill. Let us know how yo go.

Thanks guys,
I have a 80series with denco turbo kit on a 1HZ and its pretty good, but not much chop compared to the 1HDFTE (i think thats right) newer turbo diesels in the 100's, and ive heard of a few reliability problems with turbo'd 1HZ engines (cracking heads etc).

Wonder how hard it would be to transplant a new turbo diesel engine into the factory 1HZ'd engine bay so you get the live axle with factory turbo diesel? Maybe it would be cheaper to convert the IFS to live axle, if thats even possible?
I'm just p1ssen in the wind by the sounds of it....better go.

The factory turbo diesel out of a IFS will not fit into a live axle 100, from what I have heard.

I believe the 1HDFTE out of the 100 series (IFS) will fit into the 105 series (live front axle), however the V8 petrol from the 100 series will not fit into the 105 series.

The TD and V8's were all IFS. The years and months of the different models can be found in www.redbook.com.au.

I think all the 4.5 litre petrol and 1Hz models were RFA, so the GXL with the 1Hz is the only new one with rigid front.

But the 1Hz are a bit gutless, and if you turbo them, as well as engine issues, the R151F gearbox may not be up to the extra power.

Only model with the 1HD-FTE motor and live axle is the TD Troopie and traytop.
