The 5vz has a very wide range of usage from 1995-2004, if we all can commit to maybe a deposit, and a petition something will happen. Granted this only the cure-all solution, to seperate the lookie-loos and the very serious people who want it. Than they will get it.
Oh and another plan of action is, if someone is in maryland, to be the prototype truck, i'm unsure if various prototypes will be needed such as, non egr/egr, 5speed/auto, Traditional Cable/Throttle By Wire, stuff like that.
Afterall they produced a 1gr supercharger, with a little more time to figure out how to mount the blower and make something to graft an intake manifold things should be gravy. Who's going to turn down the 5vz, it's more durable than a 1gr, afterall! = ) I'm sure if it had vvti, we can leave that 1gr in the dust. Respect your forefathers! =P
