I'm running (gasp) stock pump, no cooler. works fine and never overheats, ever. Not even after a hard day in the desert. My only complaint is that it's slow to turn at idle due to the volume of fluid and I'm "fighting the ram", but it's not that bad really. I've been hung up before and have yet to break anything. Running the craptastic new version of the Currie setup that likes to rip off your sway bar links..

That being said, I will be upgrading my pump at some point lol

They have just never given anything to shout about. The 5.6 was mediocre and it didn't really pop for me.

what exactly is American? That ended in the mid 70's. Sadly American isn't necessarily quality. Buying American is just patriotism and an attempt at job security. Dont get me wrong, if two products side by side are equal in every aspect, I'll buy American. If not, I'll buy the better product.

Update on the cylinder head. It does HOT have any burnt valves. It is warped and full of cracks! Obviously way over heated. Trying to find one locally that isn't cracked, not easy. Soon as I do, it goes back together with a nice, new Pacesetter header. Keep your collective fingers crossed.

Toyota and Nissan manufacture their trucks in America, using primarily American made parts, assembled entirely by Americans. The Tacoma is basically only sold here. Very little profit goes overseas (maybe 1% or less), since they have to pa for manufacturing costs as well as dealership and manufacturer plant costs. If most of the profits go overseas, how do I, as well as some 100,000 other Toyota Motors North America employees get paid?

All about that unibody life.

Will do.

Speaking of which, I have a pile of parts to go on the Jeep, and no time to do it. Holiday season is right around the corner. :/

i wouldnt buy one for towing a large trailer around or anything, but they make a perfectly fine, reliable vehicle. you can get a million miles out of the VG block, not to mention forged internals and a girdled crank from the factory. the single cam is good for 450hp/tq on the bottom end with zero modifications, just valve, fuel and intake work. and hell, they don't even use that anymore since the VQ came out. The KA is another prime example of a bulletproof motor.

FYI - small bit of trivia, but Ford and nissan share parts. Ford used to use the VG30 in their minivans.

oh yea, the GTR hold a top speed around the nurburgring in 10th position at 7:19.10, following a Radical SR3 Turbo by only a second....which is hardly a "production" car. that's faster then the ZR1. just saying.

Jeep used ford parts too. The 4.2 computer is ford as well as some emissions parts.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

The greatest thing that America has ever produced is debt. We make ALOT of it.

On a side note instead of eating it because I'm starving I decided to butcher a couple of food items in the name sake of a holiday made up to stimulate a sickened economy. The teeth on the one in the back turned out really cool. At least I think it did
