Just get the TRD supercharger... Yeah I wish they would have put the 1UR-FE in but methinks the 1GR is a much cheaper engine to make. The price point on the FJ is low enough that a torquey 4.0L V6 is decent, especially mated to the 6 speed. Unfortunately Toyota hasn't made a manual trans that would mate to their V8s in a LONG time...
I'm still a fan of mating the 1UZ to the W58 with a custom bellhousing. I'm planning on this in my old celica one of these years...
