The 1jz weighs 204kg with or without the turbo and inter cooler?

Yeah boost is intoxicating but somehow on average I probably drive as slow if not slower in my Evo than my other 2 NA cars! Lol.
Not included, purely engine weight. Hahaha that's what i'm impressed with 1JZ, i boost all day long and still return me with kinda good FC. On average, RM100 on RON95 can get me somewhere 360 km or 380 km.

don't think the UZ would fit. Some friends of mine commented that it's a wide engine although short. Wide is never gonna fit in a 46 engine bay.
There are plenty of E46 with 1UZFE, domestically and internationally. However, the engine bay is fully occupied that makes modifications very troublesome. Russians like to fit this engine into their E46, locally wise, i went to this Lee's Garage in Shah Alam, they have done a couple of 1UZ swapped E46 in the past with great success.

For modifications, 1JZ will benefit more as more working room. For stock standard comfort, 1UZFE will be good enough. The later version of 1UZFE packs 320hp N/A. Some simple IHE, ignition and ECU should get another 30 hp easily.

Thanks,
Ken

I'm impressed you're running on RON95! And how can you boost and have good FC?? When I was doing it, boosting too much meant 100km shaved off my FC

Then if all included still about 250 kg also.

Wah that's the same as mine OFF boost! Last week measurement only got me 7.7km/litre testing on 95 with Bardhal octane booster, granted I went thru quite a lot traffic jams. Seems like this mixture gives me a bit better FC than pure 97.

The engine has no problem running on RON95, no vibration and no knocking even at 6.5k high rev.

I think thanks to the final drive, when i am cruising at 120km/h or below, my RPM is about 2.5-2.7k. Now i am gonna figure out how to rid of the droning sound !

Interesting, can i find this in ACE Hardware ? I think in time it is still better to have higher octane for high performance engine. I also noticed engine will run colder when on RON97 or RON100.

Exhaust drone? I got a few "dark arts" secrets to try if you're interested.

Oh tall gearing, no wonder!

I bought from Lazada/Shoppee. Supposedly can increase ron by as much as 3 numbers (up to 30 points), so theoretically similar to 97-98? So far I tested no knocking even on full boost at red line.

If it runs colder on 97 or 100 then it could be knocking all these while.

Well to be honest, my temp has never been very stable since day 1, i blame it on the engine bay area, not enough clearance for all the hot air to escape. Even with RON97 and above, occasionally on hard drive, i can still see temperature gauge creep past middle alittle bit. Once fan kicks in, it will return back to so called normal temp.

I just bought too on Lazada. 3 bottles, one for each of my fleet.

The tall gearing is nice for fuel economy but kills abit low end performance, my 3rd gear at 6500 rpm is already 180 km/h.

I just bought 6 from Shopee, around rm12/btl.

Wah very tall, even taller than my mark x stock gearing.

My VR also can run on Ron95 but Petron and BHP. Once put Shell in, it coughs and splutter.....lol
Have been filling Petron 95, 97 and 100, but seems 95 easier to start....:dontknow:

Thats weird, all my cars run fine on Shell 95, since i don’t have to pay for it, i have been using Shell RON95 consecutively for 2 years with no issue. Lets see how the Bardhal works on the 1jz.
