November FFP Featured Car Of The Month - 1JZ Toyota Pickup
Everyone once and awhile you come across a modern vehicle that truly fits
the description of a "Hot Rod". A car built with almost nothing in mind
except tire shredding, Exhaust
screaming, adrenaline-pumping speed. Gus' 1992 Toyota Pickup is one of
What started life as a humble 2WD pickup, now shelters a 1JZ 2.5L Inline 6
turbo engine with a single GT30r turbo force-feeding it -- all backed by a stout
5-speed transmission and a spool-locked rear differential. A stealth black
Intercooler and piping blend
into the front bumper to lead unsuspecting Mustang drivers to believe there is
nothing special about this dented, rusting, poor man's work truck prior to
it screaming away from them full-steam, taillights fading in the night.
But the scary part is -- it's only on a factory tune pushing a measly
12.5PSI of Boost. With the help of
a wideband O2 and an SAFC, Gus plans to spend some time in the near future
turning his dreamcrusher up even more. Future plans include bigger, better
brakes, and making the body more cosmetically attractive as well.
But one thing is for sure, whether it's running a basic tune or turned up
over 400+whp, this truck will be sure to put a smile on your face and leave
you giggling like a school girl as you destroy the perfectly good meats on
the rear wheels.
