    All I needed to do was swap the sump from the Hilux 18rc to the GT Celica 18RG (the engine block is exactly the same just the head and internals are different) bolt the engine mounts on and drop it in,Find a straight bit of radiator hose 9 inches long for the top hose the bottom hose is exactly the same, I had to get the Celica extractors modified to fit (they hit the torsion bar in my rhd in lhd the steering column may be an issue) and I also put the internals out of a 22r electronic dizzy into the 18RG dizzy with the coil and ignitior. Instant na 150hp :headbang:

    Can you post a picture of the exhaust side? Where did you get the Celica extractor? TIA

    I crashed the other week so the inner guard is off to the left a bit. The extractors came with the engine when I got it.

    Thanks. So I guess you don't know who made them... :(

    Most extractors are copies of the TRD units that go up and around/over and get too close to the brake master cylinders on USDM cars...

    They are pacemaker extractors.
