Hey fellow hilux-heads
Thought Id post up some pics of my new toy. Having driven a bone stock AE100 for the last two years (sensible new dad) and owned/built lots of 'fun' cars/trucks before that, its nice to have something interesting to drive again. In breaking that cycle I decided this time around I'd buy something already built and avoid the money pit of building something from a blank canvas...
Ute is a 2WD KUN Hilux with lots of fancy bits. Pic when I bought it:
Most braggable is one of these:
Could play name the engine game but its pretty unidentifiable given aftermarket everything, previous owner built it to look like an old school V8 but the keen eyed will notice the fuel rails and injectors
Motor is a '97 LT1 with big cam, Dart heads, headers and lots of other bolt ons. Sits in front of a 4L60E and also has R33 front brakes, XR8 disc rear end (shame) with LSD, and twin 3" mandrel exhaust (sounds tits!)
Is also run by one of these (full 8 cylinder multi point):
So far haven't done too much, was fumey in the cab with crank case breathers venting to the engine bay so added a catch can, also changed some engine bay wiring I didn't like. Front bar was junk so ditched that and de-chromed wing mirrors, badges etc. Also added a rear hard lid and TRD grill. Wheels is next big ticket item though not sure which way I'll go there...
