have you had temp issues with your fj? cause in general mines been really good it hardly gets much past 60-70 deg at the thermostat on hot days (just street) sunday was 30+ 36max i think and it was creeping toward 100 at thermo after hotlaps but cooled back to 80-85 after a cool down lap..

i have got a VN alloy radiator fitted plus using water wetter and a good large thermo fan + i cleaned it all out in preperation for the heat

ill be fitting an oil cooler before the next time out though regardless of the heat as i want to do many more track days in it

Yea thats pretty good.as long as it cools down !

When I had a fj (like 8 years ago) :( it got hot once and popped the head. I had to source a new head for it it was that gone. Only had stock gauge

Put the head on and bottom end went.

That's when I went Rb.

Water wetter is good stuff.

Oil cooler drops temps heaps and a must if u going to Kane it.

Btw car sounds mad. I want a fj

Sorry for the hi-jack but while on the subject of temp issues... I've got some issues. Overheated on shakedown drive after dyno tune up an angry hill overflow spewed almost 1/2 a litre stock gauge around 2/3's..

Got thermo fan and temp gauge checked out and apparently sweet. Was told that my rad is prob 50% blocked so removed aircon condesor. Now takes ages to get up operating temp by then heatsoak sets in on the stock intercooler (10.5psi). Gauge is 1/2 way in traffic.

I want to rig the standard secondary fan to kick in with the primary and a bit earlier. Is the thermostat located on the top tank?

Help appreciated is my daily atm just ordered an adaptronic and cactus engine is the last thing I need.

how hot did you get it though ydr? 100deg under pressure so i understand it is ok.. it was good at cooling it self back to the 80s..

ps d-limo thermostat is in the housing on the engine that the top radiator hose attaches too

Yea 100 deg is ok. Wouldn't want it higher thou. When I'm drifting it will sit around 90-100.

Like u said but depends on the day I prefer winter skids for that reason.

I cooked my fj hard dude Off the clock. Stock gauge.

Young and dumb ( dumber lol) was on the brake for ages looked down and yea she was cooking.

D-limo. Get a eBay r32 alloy rad. Cheap dude. Don't bother w the fj rad.

Standard fj thermo s arent the greatest so I'd upgrade them

    • Why are you still trying to buy a crappy jap brand exhaust? go to your local exhaust shop and get a heaps better one made that will fit under the body 100x better
    • I’m very happy with my recent purchase of the Fuga but resisting the conversion to English of the navigation system. I’ve used Google translator to get around the system to date but I must have pressed something, now wondering if any Fuga owners (mine is 2011) know how to get out of this ‘dual’ or ‘panel’ screen mode. It’s driving me crazy 
    • hello! i am looking into upgrading the cams on my rb26 in the future, and wanted to start to understand what goes into this. i did a forum search and nothing obvious came up, so forgive me if this is already discussed somewhere. currently the engine is stock, save for (pertinent to this discussion): adjustable cam pulleys beefed up timing belt haltec ecu, not yet installed yet oil baffle plates i am will be converting to a single turbo set up, and that turbo's peak output is reached at somewhere between 5k and 5.5k rpm. this would be for street use. from what i understand, i should be looking at cams degreed at 272°. does that sound like it makes sense? there are step 1 and step 2 variants of these cams. i am not sure what the difference is in the to variants, so if anyone can chime in on this it would be great. i am assuming i would need to upgrade my valve springs as well. other than a tune, what would go into a camshaft upgrade? if i want to go with a v-cam upgrade much later, how does that affect i am doing now? i understand that it's totally possible that i completely missed something major here, but that's why i am posting this: i am here to learn. cheers!
    • I don't know whether you've made a decision yet or not. But left to me, I'll choose RAV4 over skyline everytime. Apart from the fact that RAV4 is a new product, skyline is an old product that it's almost out of vogue. It has some issues and require high maintenance. 
    • Ill see how this adaptor goes first. But thanks for the offer.
