The FJ40 is now powered by a Cummins R2.8 turbo diesel inline-four. These motors produces around 161 horsepower and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of torque in factory spec. PRLC paired the motor to a Toyota H55F five-speed manual transmission which sends power to a 38 mm split transfer case and out to ARB locking differentials.
