Counting the days to complete collecting the required items before I seriously start restoring the vehicle.

Guys,

Please let me know what is your opinion on Toyota 2L-TE engine.

The 2L-TE features a new development used in Diesel engines at that time, the EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) system. Although Toyota used this fuel injection system in gasoline engines years before, this is among the first Diesel engines to adopt such a system. Although the basic construction is similar to a modern gasoline injector, the EFI system in 2L-TE utilize considerably higher injection pressures. The EFI system meter fuel with great precision and succeeded in increasing the engine's efficiency. Like the 2L-T , it is 2.4L (2446cc) and it is a SOHC (Single Overhead Cam) engine, having 8 valves. It also comes with a Turbo charger. The bore is 92 mm and stroke is also 92 mm. Due to the EFI system, the 2L-TE is stronger than 2L-T, having maximum output of 97HP (72.3kW) at 3800 RPM and maximum torque is 24.54 kg.m (240.3 N・m) at 2400 RPM. Redline of this engine is at 4800 RPM. Compression ratio is 21.0 : 1

However, If I get this one for my FJ40 then I will be replacing the EFI with manual FIP to escape the ECM issues. Will you suggest me this engine for my FJ40 over Toyota 14B ?

Hmmm the 2L-TE didn't work out, but the update is that I have finally managed to get a used Steering box (with column) assy and stepney bracket and one hinge for my Toyota FJ40.

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for rest of the parts that I need. Once all the parts are ready, the project restoration kicks off.

The woods are lovely dark and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep...

I am glued to this thread and wanna see the end product after the complete restoration. My friend had changed his TATA Sierra engine to 2LT and the pickup was amazing once turbo kicks in. He got the engine from Delhi for around 50K.

You Got a gem of a vehicle there tramway.
I remember seeing somewhere on this forum the quote for a similar TLC FJ model for 12 Lakhs. Am glued to this thread now :-)
I Like your approach of restoring by getting all the parts in the first place.
Wish you all the luck & success in your project. Cheers.

Kumar
