Yea the thing is that specific motor is literally BULLET PROOF, I've seen the arguments go back and forth between FJ owners and the basic consensus is Toyota choose reliability over power and efficiency with allot of the FJ components including the motor and didn't want to further undercut the Land Cruiser market with FJ sales.

NOW if they had a turbo diesel motor as an option...........
