In South Africa, a few seasoned mechanics managed to fit a Toyota Century’s V12 into a Hilux pickup. But since that was not enough, they also stuck a pair of turbos on him!
Some mechanics sometimes have crazy ideas, like these South Africans. They installed the 12-cylinder V of a Toyota Century under the hood of a Japanese pickup, arguably making it the first Hilux V12 to the world! Fitting such a 6.2-liter block into this engine bay is already a feat, but they didn’t stop there.
They also decided to add a pair of Garrett GT35 turbos. As standard, the Japanese V12 develops around 300 hp, but combined with this supercharging, this power has practically doubled! The engine of this Hilux now produces over 500 hp and almost 1000 Nm of torque!The rest of the vehicle has been adapted to this increase, including the transmission which now sends all of its power to the rear wheels only.
If this work is already remarkable, it was also done in record time. It took only 2 short weeks for the mechanics to accomplish their work. Just in time for the start of the Simola hill climb. We can actually see the pick-up during the qualifying session, producing a din worthy of this incredible engine!
