TOYAN V8 NITRO ENGINE Full Review By Dennis

 

INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW TOYAN/HOWIN FS-V800!!!!

 

Let's get a little gift first, the key chain v8 engine. Pretty cool, I like this. I'll be putting my Camaro keys on this. I love it. Thank you, Stirlingkit. 

I want to mess the box up. Nice wooden box I love it and it's actually shrink-wrapped keeps moisture and stuff out of it keeps stuff from falling apart and is very very well packed. Pretty nice quality stuff here, I love it. I'm about to make a lot of room for this. Stand up here. Nice crankshaft, I love that crankshaft, pistons, and rods are already assembled. That's cool. We got our shafts similar to the TOYAN L-400 cylinder head design. Very very well packed. I like this very nice. Here got our belts and flywheels and starter stuff pulleys. this is going to be a fun build, it's gonna be fun.

 

Here we got our oil pan, nice quality stuff I like the beautiful coating on this and the machine work is flawless on this thing I love it. We got our cylinder heads the cool thing with the cylinder heads, they've already installed the valves for us. I like that. We have down here, the bottom of the box we got the cylinder block that's a real nice piece. I like that very lightweight, very comparable to the L400. it's actually a lot shorter and smaller than the L400 if they did a good job on this. I like this, very well cast, very well machined. got a nice water jacket running around in there. Got the recess down here for your starter and stuff beautiful.

One thing I wanted to point out, just like on the L400 your rings are inside the cylinder walls, so they're matched to that cylinder, so keep that ring with that cylinder same all the way down there. They pushed them all the way down to the bottom so they wouldn't fall out and we're going to build this up we're going to do some size comparisons. Like I say it's just the right size because I wanted a v8 that was a little smaller than a quarter scale and I think this is going to be a little smaller than a quarter scale, so this would be nice, be able to fit this in a sixth scale very easily or even squeeze it in an eighth scale. So we're gonna go thank you Stirlingkit.

THE ALL NEW TOYAN/HOWIN BUILD!!!

We're going to go step by step and it looks pretty easy to build, so I like building the engines myself that way I'm familiar with how they operate. It'd be nice to have one already put together, save time and everything but I like to check the fit finish and basically, I know by the directions if something would happen with the engine down the road I would know how to tear it apart. That's why I like the L400 kit so much because you could just whip them apart and put them back together again, so we're gonna go over the table of contents first.

  

They got your little bag of tools here if you need them so here's the layout we put in your blister or your phone packs there. they're all numbered and down through they show you basically what's in each foam container foam separator. your hardware's got all your numbers and then they show you to start building a crankshaft, so it's pretty simple, what I did is just kind of laid everything out here.

Some more of the build this thing's going pretty quick and I'm really liking this thing it's everything like fit together real nice, the head gaskets the shims are made out of aluminum, some of them had a couple of bends in them but if you take something soft like a back of a marker and just kind of not don't push hard just kind of rub it a little bit and it'll rub it right out so I'm digging this thing. I love it. I love this thing so more to come guys more to come so now we got our heads on I jumped ahead a little bit to try to figure this out but I want to go over the instructions with everybody. it's looking good, I'm excited.

A lot of bolts on that intake, they made sure it was good and level, then you mount your carbs with your two bolts on each bracket there, and then you get to your starter flywheel. and one thing I wanted to mention about the flywheel I thought was really cool was it's recessed inside there so you can bring your clutch shoes in your clutch in tighter inside that so I thought that was pretty cool I don't know how a clutch is a regular eight scale clutch is gonna hold up to this thing but we're to find out because that's what I'm going to put on it and then your carb linkage and your front idler pulleys and your front water pump bracket your tension belt tensioner. I'm sorry and then your idler smooth pulleys for your belt and then they tell you your timing marks all the timing marks go down when they when you put it together and then you have you put your headers on which is coming close to the end of the build valve covers I didn't really see any valve cover gaskets either. I know like the toy end has a valve cover gasket on it, maybe they omitted it. I didn't think they needed it. I don't know that cool-looking air cleaner like the old cobra 427 cobras and looks like she's just about done.

My opinion so far is I really like this thing and it was well worth the wait. Now we'll get it running and we'll see where it goes from there. I mean the cool thing about what we have now is we have it. Some of the stuff was rushed out into production, they had some problems with other engines. But you have to admit most of the engines, the only problem I ever had with one of these engines was a little valve seat not seating in the L400 and the L200, and just the crankshaft problem on the L400 which from what I understand they took care of. It's just a simple bigger bearing in the front and I would probably put a bigger bearing in the back too on that thing because I still have one that I ran a little bit, but I haven't read a lot. But as far as the TOYAN engine goes, this stuff was just a thought, a couple of years ago I mean they talked about building one for a long time, but now we have them. So it's a blessing that they jumped ahead with what went on in the world over the past couple of years. I'm really amazed that they actually got one produced and put into the market this will be the first affordable v8 that's out there, it's the cheapest. And in my opinion, I really like the valve setup on this thing because I'm an old push rod guy. We had to camp down here in the push rods and everything else but there's so much wear on those things and there's a constant need for adjustment. The odyssey v8 has them with the rover rockers and everything and they're constantly coming on down, there is just so much friction dancing around there just constant constant maintenance what I learned from the L400 very reliable cylinder head, it was just could have simplified the carburation on it, but I probably ran that engine more than I have any of my other engines and if this head design is going to be just as reliable as that because it looks like it's almost exactly the same parts. I think this engine is going to be a good contender and it's going to be good and reliable, so say I did not fire it up yet I see more perception. He said you know they got to warm up a little bit before you go. You know that's cool. There were a couple of things in the directions that I didn't quite understand so I had to keep going back and looking at everybody else's videos.
