I got the 208-B cams. It's a lot of power. I haven't really pushed the edge yet, but this thing wants to run full out and it's a bit nuts. It doesn't even have headers or an ecu on, and it's a rocket. XAT did not come up on my radar--which is odd, because I was looking, and they weren't on Yota1's radar either. They like Crower, but we couldn't get the time of day from them on UZ cams.

I just did a 30-mile freeway run to reset the code logs for smog. It's definitely rough with the stock ecu when it's not running wide open. But no CEL codes. Checked all the fluids and everything looked great.

I'll let you know. I'd like it to be sooner than later, but the tuner's got a backlog of a couple of weeks. I'm going to get it smogged and finish up some of other small projects in the mean time, like finishing the grill.

Glad your not having DTCs so far. You'll probably have to fight those after the headers and exhaust. Hope the tune goes trouble free as well! Thanks for documenting this build!
We need more of this type of attention on the 2UZ. I hope Steel City Racing has a good showing at KOH next year. Steel City Racing - Home | Facebook

Tired of hearing about LS swaps. I know those engines are the "go to" for performance = bang for your buck. But, there is a crap load of 4.7 cores out there waiting to be built. We just need more aftermarket companies looking into viable, budget friendly rebuild and Tuning options, without FI. But there just isn't enough interest to warrant the R&D money for those companies. I don't think we would even have headers if it weren't for Ivan Stewart and the Tundra guys building Desert trucks and Toyota racing entering Nascar.

Also really curious about the whole Japan vs US 4.7 debate. I would love to tear down a Tundra or Sequoia engine next to a 4Runner or Lexus for comparison.

As far as XAT, they kinda think outside of the box, recently doing a 2JZ swap into a 71 El Camino lol. They have my interest for sure. Now all I need is 1 mmiiilllliiion dollars to build out all my dream trucks.

My block is now a Sequoia block. Part of the oil gallery was ripped out when the rod went, and the shop had a Sequoia block to donate. I'll have to look up the numbers and see where it was manufactured.

Tentatively scheduled with the tuner for the first week of December. He's saying it will take up to two weeks to wire, tune and test, given their workload. I'll keep you posted.

I'm guessing it either came together and he's having too much fun blasting around the Bay or he sold the project.
