Why does everyone talk about the 1UZ/3UZ from Toyota the most bulletproof engine ever built but never mention the M113?

Why does everyone talk about the 1UZ/3UZ from Toyota the most bulletproof engine ever built but never mention the M113?

Timing chain > interference timing belt.

The simple fact is, the M113 can handle abuse just as good if not better than the 1UZ/3UZ overall.

      hell yeah brother

      that said, I've never had any engine issues with my two LSs, but both ended up needing a troony replacement.

        Shh, don't give away the secret that the M113 and even the M113K are indestructible motors that will last half a million miles(+) without a rebuild or major maintenance despite making close to 500hp - it might actually make their affordable prices go up.

        I've seen many LSs with 400-500k miles, but in Chevrolet Express van groups I regularly see people with 600-700k+ miles on their original motors that haven't even had the valve covers off since the factory. The most I ever saw was ~950k on an original 5.3, which was finally swapped not due to failure but because the owner had a fresh, low mile motor lying around (and the van was needed for work).

    the thing is the m113 has always pushed higher hp figures, and had stuff like cylinder deactivation along with 3 valves per cylinder and 2 spark plugs per cylinder vs the uz being a basic 4v dohc v8 with vvti. The uz was around from 89 all the way to the early 2010s whereas the m113 was only around for half that. Of course the m113 can take boost and perform, but its not as simple of an engine as the 1uz. There's also just more uz's around that have racked up a ton of miles, since mercedes only put the m113 in specific trims vs entire lines of cars only having uz engines

        You shouldn't compare lease bait to Japanese built. You look moronic.

    What about the Cummins 6BT ?

    Diesel for farmers what has a completely mechanical fuel system, making all the electrics in it just a few wires. And such a simple engine can do mileage in excess of 2 MILLION miles in factory condition , and after tuning exceeds 1400 hp.

        >Simple detuned diesels are cheating

        But not every diesel is reliable , such a VAG 2.0 TDI for a diesel is a unreliable engine (especially compared to the older 1.9 TDI)

      I don't think anyone is saying the most ''bulletproof engine ever built'' I think its moreso least flawed design in a passenger car, in the way of just chugging along on normal maintenance. A 4bt or 6bt is a fully mechanical engine originally designed for use in heavy machinery. Thats a whole different standard. but if you're gonna bring up the 12v, there's plenty of other engines in that area that are as good if not better longevity wise made by stuff like cat and detroit. I mean detroit was literally making massive fully mechanical cast iron 2 stroke diesel 4 cylinders and v8s that could rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. It doesn't get simpler than that

    Are the electronics surrounding the engine as reliable though? How about vacuum lines? Do you think it would cost a similar amount to diagnose/fix any problems? Are parts even available? Get real, you can pull a working 1UZ with all the dressings from a junkyard alllll day but you can’t say the same for the merc.

      Surely the crankshaft position sensor likes to break down in the M113 (normal in M113)

    The real question is why does no one ever mention the VQ? the thing is abused by the worst among us yet as long as you feed it oil, it'll keep going.
