    I suffer from the bigger is better mentality when I look at the Ford Mustang, 2.3 turbo- 224 kW vs 5.0 V8 340 KW, oh and don't forget the engine sound.
    Seriously though I think this new ranger motor and transmission combo appears to be a good combo. Will be interested in your reflections in comparison with your Prado with regards comfort etc. I'm tempted to also swap.
    I wish they would make the disc/ coil rear axle as running in the Raptor, an option in the Wildtrack

    Thats one pretty truck. I look forward to seeing it modified. I got out of a 120 Prado for my ranger and find the rangers ride and comfort equal or better than the Prado. I hope you enjoy your new ride. As previously stated Im looking forward to the build.

    Leaves the Prado for dead mate in all aspects, the dream combo would've been the 3.2 with the 10 speed i reckon but the bi turbo is more than powerful and leaves Prado for dead.
    Superior Engineering do a coil rear conversion for $3500 and you keep the 3.5T towing capacity.
