Cool video. The only time that guy slowed down was when he flopped. From what I've heard, those Landcruisers have a ton of power. After watching that video, it seems they certainly do.

if by a ton of power you mean absolutely none at all
they're straight sixes, puttin out the same power as a second gen troop's 3.2 sohc or less i'm guess 175 maybe some good low end torque but not enough to make up for the butt load that they weigh
you can make em scoot though since of course sittin on yota axles you can gear em deeper than micheal jackson's child molestation files

that video still puts a grin on my face
bet he had to replace every ball joint and wheel bearing and tie rod end on that thing when he was done

that video is badass! Oh, and by the way, Toyota axles don't have ball joints and the engine does have a decent amount of power!

hp is not enough for that rig.... but the torque curve is far better than an isuzu engine.

In-line 6 engines usually make pretty good truck/tractor engines. The piston stroke is usually relatively quite long and, being 6 cylinders long, the crank and flywheel are usually massive.

Lots of squid thrilling top-end horsies? Nope.
Plenty of stump pulling, highly practical torque? Yes!

The only problem is, they make for a pretty long front clip, and I like seeing over the front of the hood of my trooper.

those motors do alright as long as they gear the truck for the size tires they are runnin. i had a buddy with 35s on one and stock gears it was wayy hurt. other than that the only downfall is the side-mounted distributor that makes the truck crap out everytime u hit a puddle too hard.
