Very expensive.


I looked into this but decided a 1UZ was a better route to take.

I've seen half-cuts on ebay and such for about half the price thats listed on that site. Still a bit pricey in my mind. But if you're engine and tranny are dead and you have to replace them anyway, whats another grand or two for a badass Toyota diesel that was meant for your truck?
