I'll take some pictures and upload them tomorrow. I noticed you turbo charged your ld 28,I am considering turbo charging one of mine and putting it in a 1997 landcruiser. Do you think it will have enough guts. At most i will want to be able to get up to 85 on the highway comfortably and I will also want to be able to do some fairly aggressive climbing/offroading with the truck. The other engine option I am considering is a cummins 4bt.

Thanks,
Joe

That's a well-known Maxima problem. Read that thread for test locations, problem locations, and FSM wiring diagram corrections.
