  1. Hey i just bought a toyota altezza 2003 model with a 3sge engine. It has about 233631km on the engine and i want to change the oil. At this stage of the engine's lifespand which would be the better oil to use between the 2, keeping in mind that i live in the caribbean so is mostly hot all the time. I've heard the myths about synthetic oil so i just want some clarification. Pros and cons if necessary. thanks in advance for the feed back

    1GFE turbo vs 1JZ swap

    appreciate the advice
  15. Hey i have a 2001 lexus is 200 and im thinking of going forced induction looking towards the ball park of 350hp. Would it be better to turbo my 1gfe or swap to a 1jz turbo. Also if i swap to the 1jz turbo will the J160 gear box in my car fit on the 1jz or will i need a gearbox aswell? looking forward to the advice
