Notes

Pick of the bunch. Best performance / economy ratio and strong low rpm torque. 4.5L 1FZ-FE LC engine with 2 cyl removed.

Thirsty but adequate performer. Lacks torque at low rpm and harsh at high rpm.

 

Rare and very slow

Rare and very slow

Early models. Peaky torque - little below 1800 rpm

Useful torque between 2000 - 3000 rpm but little elsewhere

Better performer than figures suggest. Wide spread of torque but lacks at low rpm
