And why is the 4JB1-T be so much smoother than the 4BD1-T? Sounds like both can put down the power.
It followed the alphabet through time as different engines were developed and manufactured.

I once heard the 4JB1T referred to as the "Thinking Gentleman's engine conversion." Keep up the great work.
4JB1T is very different compared to the 4JB1-T, but still a proven power plant.
You should drive our 4JB1-T sometime as we know how to tune them.

Completed a third conversion in our red 110 earlier this year (now sold).
Here's a video of it flying down the interstate.
