Ill use the 4jb1 sticks then.

On another note, i finally have my other turbo figured out, and its quite the hybrid haha. To start out, im using a vf34 ball bearing center section, a vf38 lightweight turbine, a vi95 (4jg2 turbo) exhaust housing, and a vifb compressor wheel and housing. This gives me a 40mm turbine with the standard ihi bolt pattern to the manifold, and a 41mm compressor. Best part is, i got it all for $850, and its all bolt together, should have really fast spool with the lightweight rotor and ball bearings, and enough air for 200hp. Ill post lots of pics as i build it.

I also ordered some ceramic dry film lube. Ill be coating the main, rod, and cam bearings, valve stems, and the cam and lifters.

The 4jh1 injectors will fit and work just spray pattern is different and if your going for high power you want the pattern to match the pistons other wise the risk of cracking them is far greater

Oh and if you run 4jh1 injectors you will have to make new injector pipes as the 4jb1 pipes dont work as I found out

Sounds like a fun project. Will be following progress. Just in case you haven't already dont it but will need to run a lot stronger valve springs running 38psi of boost.
Looking forward to progress.
I have a spare 4jb1t that I'll be stripping down and doing something similar and then swapping with my stock one.

Hey guys, just letting you know that upgrading the crank is probably going to need to be on the table for these hi power builds on the 4JB1T. Snapped the crank a few days ago on my setup, this was with 11mm fuel injection pump on my compound setup whilst running 35psi. Currently looking at options to use a stronger crank. I have a spare engine but reluctant to just use it as the same thing will probably happen. Not too many options when it come to cranks with these things.

Doesn’t seem to be an issue, ran up to 46psi on my compound setup without valve issues.

valves are held closed by cylinder pressure. The issue that requires stronger springs is higher revs. This doesnt really apply to diesels
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them

Ah yeah okay, have always done springs on petrols when doing high horse power, high revs makes sense.

Upgrading crank sounds expensive.
