1KD is d4d common rail, sure they are going to be more powerful, but unless you are going to keep it forever, is the huge cost/ hassells really going to pay off.
Keep what you got, I take it has the 5L or 5LE, EFI version of the 5L engine. Had one of these 5LE in the dual cab work ute, four up, a tonne of gear, pulled like a train
Hey all I’ve recently purchased the family’s 2002 hilux 3.0 diesel I’m looking to purchase an engine as the head gasket has blown any recommendations I was thinking either 1kz or 1kd has anyone had any problems I should be concerned about with either engine Cheers
The de-Ascent-ifying of Marvin continues - brand new genuine foglights and surrounds (from the top-spec Levin), everything was pre-wired so just needed the relay (installed ages ago when we had the dash apart) and combination switch. Globes are selective-yellow Osram Fogbreakers.
Also finally got around to getting the black steering wheel controls w/ the hands free buttons installed on the ZRE wheel, I probably still prefer the silver but the blacks are growing on me.
Quite possibly due to the US-market technically being a different chassis to here. Our 10th-gen Corollas are ZRE15x (the Euro-style wide-body) whereas the US is ZRE14x (a wide-body version of the narrow-body JDM series, also in SE Asia). Hubs are definitely different regardless too because they ran 5x100 whereas ours are 5x114.3.
Certainly food for thought. Quite likely that someone may release a conversion kit for the Camry. Then it may become more of an affordable option to consider when the engine and transmission have expired. At the moment, some enthusiasts have converted some classic cars to being EV under the hood.
