interesting... taking a FJ out in favor of a SR


"like people, every car possesses a unique character, with its own DNA, talents, and idiosyncrasies. push it too hard and it'll turn on you, as a person would. if its worth anything, it gets more interesting the more you get to know it"

luck is earned through hard work and determination, not to mention the willingness to take risks and to see bad luck and setbacks as opportunities for growth and a new direction.

It's impossible to find any parts for it HERE when it comes to repairs... So this is almost only one solution when FJ need repairs - swap it with something that is repairable.

Damn that wiring looks scary.
I'd rather be a matchstick than a lighter.

That's strange, because all these pics is on the same server / hosting on our site...

I think you'll have to sell your car to pay for the shipping of all this, lol...  The prices are equal for me to buy and get something from you guys (ship with plane across the ocean and stuff), or to buy in russia and transport it to Ukraine through the border, etc...

It may be a FJ20E, not a FJ20ET, but I don't know.  SR's are so common worldwide, and the FJ probably is really hard to get parts for in Russia.

Yes, it's FJ20E, not ET. I have seen only one notch, that says RS-X on it (it must be ET I think), but the guy is swapped it with FJ20E (or just removed turbo)... FJ20ET is wery rare here.

When it comes for parts... Well, I asked one time in FJ20 section for someone to help me find anything STOCK with maintenance spec. Like 0.25 - 0.5 pistons, rings... Camshafts... I get no answers. Where fo you find all the parts, if you just want to rebuild FJ20 without WISECO pistons and stuff like this?

Yeap. I am from Ukraine, not America.  Can you tell me a source where to find the parts for FJ? The stock ones, not a tuned-forged stuff... An online store or something, where they can ship it?
