A 1UZ engine is reliable, powerful, and provides a smooth ride. It is no wonder it was used in the Lexus LS 400 and the Toyota Celsior, as well as several other Toyota models from 1989 until 2002. The 1UZ is the first generation of the Toyota UZ engine series. It is a 4.0-liter dual overhead camshaft 90-degree engine. You can find this powerhouse in the large inventory on eBay. Enjoy up to 256 horsepower with 260 lbs. per foot of torque when you drop this engine into your Toyota. As an all-alloy aluminum engine, the 1UZ is durable and lightweight. Aluminum alloys also disperse heat better, so it helps to keep the engine and surrounding components cooler while the car is in operation. In 1995, the 1UZ engine got a slight upgrade boosting it to 261 horsepower and 268 lbs. per foot of torque. Another revision in 1997 boosted it to a further 290 horsepower and 300 lbs. per foot of torque. Consider a 1997 or later version of this engine to get the maximum amount of power for your ride.Shop the extensive inventory of motors, parts, accessories, and complete Lexus engines!
