    Hey all, it's been awhile.

    I've always loved the diesel Hilux's, and there is a surf ssr-G for sale in my city. Anyone have some knowledge they wanna share if I decide to explore this opportunity?

    Info on the vehicle/modifications:

    1991 Hilux Surf SSR-G

    Incredibly reliable turbo diesel motor that has just had the head upgrade to a 3L swap along with new timing belt and water pump and egr delete to keep the egts down. Truck gets awesome fuel economy aswell as drives amazing! Perfect unit for camping or hunting. Push button 4x4 that works awesome. Steering is very tight.

    Parts
    -Water jet cut egr delete
    -pyro
    -brand new oversized aluminum rad
    -Brand new 3L cylinder head along with all upper gaskets done by a diesel tech
    -new timing belt
    -new water pump
    -less then 10000km on front end suspension
    -newer 31 inch tires
    - clean body with paint matched two tone raptor liner
    -Interior steam cleaned
    -jdm steering wheel
    -Automatic shifts amazing no issues also was serviced and had the trans filter changed
    -New external transmission cooler
    -Newer ct20 turbo as the previous one had was terrible
    -CCV relocation to frame rail can include a catch can if you want
    -Glow plug over ride to help on the colder days
    -WARN manual locking hubs


    I heard that the 2.4 engines have head issues but this one has been swapped to the 3L head. Are there any other major issues that can come with the 2.4's?

    Thanks for the reply! I managed to stumble across that website a few days ago, loads of useful info. I'm trying to find something with a nice list of common part #'s. I'm currently working at a diesel parts store and have access to vendors for virtually any part, just curious to see if there's much availability from our suppliers for jdm engine parts.
