Hi folks my first post I believe although I have had this account for a while. Hope everyone’s doing well. I’m just after some advice on which direction I should go in , last week my 1HZ said goodbye and cracked a piston (so we believe) and now I am in a situation where I can rebuild the 1HZ (this time using all turbo spec gear) for around $6000 or drop in a 1HD-T for an extra $2000 now I can source a good 1HD-T with lowish kilometres in the 100000s but am really unsure as they are around 8K for one. BUT to me it makes sense dropping a 1HD-T in as it’s factory turbo ( tells me it’s designed for a turbo and it’s safe) however I am highly aware of the big end bearing problems however they will be replaced every 100k. So do I go down that line or do I rebuild my 1HZ to suit turbo ? I’m really unsure I feel staying with the 1HZ is a step backwards and are probably still just as unreliable as a stock 1HZ with after market turbo even with ceremic coated pistons and turbo con rods will it really produce that much extra power safely over a long period of time ? What do you guys think I should do ? Obviously I am also running standard gearbox but once’s that’s shot it will also be upgraded so not a concern just yet. I do a lot of rural travel out in the bush so I need something reliable. Please only comment if you have had experiences with both these engines. I’m truely stuck between a rock and a hard place with this one and need to get the ball moving. Thanks guys !
