  1. Thanks for the info but WHINING is a bit strong dont you think impatient yes ;)
  2. Not one ble*ding answer :o just the one answer would do ie were ALL the MKIIIs grey imports or were some UK models thanks in advance ;)
  3. Hi All, Can i just say a big HELLO to you all :D i am completely new to Supras all i know is i want one and have loved the look of the MKIIIs for many years but have heard horror stories about warped heads/gskts blowing :( Sorry for sounding thick but can anyone please tell me if all the MKIIIs are grey imports any help or advice on the above very welcome ;)
  4. Hi Tony, Welcome to the forum i was in the samish situation as you having just sold my Rangie classic 3.9 lpg and buying my first ever L/C i loved my Rangie but lpg and rust was getting a pain :( Anyway back to the L/C if your engine is a 1KZ-TE which i suspect it is look on top of the engine it will be in BIG letters ? if it is then doing the cambelt is a piece of urine to do :D I had a lot of encouragement from other L/C owners on the forum and the OTHER forum they are all a very cheerful helpful bunch just ask away i did my c.belt in just over 40mins i think. I have had my L/C about two months now and other than the mpg i love it i average 20mpg around town i have had 28+mpg on a run to Devon doing 70-80mph so not too bad really. I keep my tyre pressures up to 30psi like my old Rangie but that is just for my convenience i have heard you can go higher which i may do in time i agree with the bumpy ride not like the Rangie is it eh best of luck with your new tank ;) Thanks for that Chaz I think my tyres are at 38 so perhaps thats not helping. It goes like a steam train and would have beaten my P38 V8 easily. I looked at getting a diesel P38 but it was just sooooooo slow and agricultural. If the toyota engione and gearbox could be put in a RR body now that would be a nice cross breed. Tin hat on! Tony Yes they are quite fast compared even compared to my lpg'd V8 Rangie but i do miss the burble/roar of the V8 but i have still got my SD1 EFI V8 in me garage for that he :D he :D I have fitted a straight through mid exh box (see my previous posts) on my L/C welding is a bit of a mess but it does sound quite throaty now almost like a V8 yeah right but it does sound much better :) I am now looking into bioderv production got me own reactor but still sourcing a reg supply of waste veg oil then i'm off (very interesting the yota lump in a RR i once fitted an Isuzu 2.8 into a Rangie auto much quicker than a 300tdi i can tell you ) Shush dont tell anyone on this forum but I also have a 1974 Lightweight (2.25 petrol) which is my weekend mistress!! Its in ya blood mate i still got a Rangie on me drive :D Tony you have a private message ;)

  8. Hi All, Well i finally fitted my straight through exhaust (ignore my claggy welding) it was done in situ and is only really a pattern for things to come i must say it sounds like a V8 now dream on Well it does sound much better than before a deep rumbling heavy sound and much quieter at speed with no droning i leave that to the missus :P all in all i,m happy with the results ;)
  9. I agree with Andy on this i also used engine flush in a Rover V8 engine many years ago was a sweet engine before the flush and a real rattler after so i have NEVER used the stuff again just reg oil changes every 3kmiles :) I also changed my filters and fluids a couple of weeks ago and praised Milners for there quality of there parts and service BUT i do now notice my oil light stays on a little longer than before :o This was suggested by some other helpful L/C owner so highlited the problem i WILL be changing my filter fo genuine asap want to keep my sweet 3.0 engine dont want a rattler/rebuild jobby
  10. Hi, Brad, Unless you have got thousands of gals of free 0w/40 just save yourself the grief do what i did buy a filter kit from Milners=oil/fuel/air filter +7lts of semi synth 10w/40 oil £60 del to me door all sorted and quality items and sell the 0w/40 to some modern pox box driver:D
  11. Think the Landcruiser is a bit BIG for UK roads the Colorado is i would say just about right not too big to park and def not too small with 8 seater how many seats would one want
  12. Wish i had an intercooler on my motor :( as far as oil goes i ordered a filter kit from Milners oil/air/fuel filters and 7lts of semi synthetic all for £61 del to me door very good quality items and quick del no hassle that will do me :D
  13. £250 for an oil cooler all in you should be able to buy an oil cooler for about £40 and fit it yourself my god it an't rocket science the hardest thing is finding neat place to fit it As far as a test for the gearbox demising just wait for dodgy gearshifts then take dipstick out if its like strawberry/rasberry milkshake your box is on borrowed time :( I am about to fit a bottle brush trans cooler from a Range Rover auto fits nicely beneath the rad looks like an original fitment just got to sort the mount bkt out i will post pics when i have fitted it ;)
  14. Thanks for the Andy Hi All,Well i did the spring stretch thing and would you believe it NO more whistles god i love this forum what an helpful bunch you are hopefully there is a pic of said f.r.v sorry about quality took it on me phone
