Unread post by Bigredbeast » April 27th, 2014, 7:56 pm

Hi guys need some advice and direction regarding my 86 surf ,2.4 turbo diesel
I recently blew my old girl up and am looking at putting in a reconditioned 5l ,
My direct question is we're do I start looking for prices and options in Melbourne ?
My other question is do I need to refit my gearbox to fit the 5l ?
Any info would be appreciated as I'm new to forum cheers! :confused:

When you say 5l, do you mean the later model 4 cylinder diesel with the Toyota engine designation "5L"? Or do you mean a 5 litre V8?

I see these terms used interchangeably. A 5 litre V8 is a very popular conversion into Surfs and Hiluxes. I had one fitted myself! :lol:
