A 1KZT(E) Cylinder Head kit containing the main components to swap your cracked 3.0cc litre head, exceptional quality containing the superb new AMC Head casting with refurbished Internals, AMC Bolts set, Elring Head Gasket and Head set and a Genuine Toyota Cam Timing Belt.

To help keep costs down, ease of ordering and lighten the load during, RoughTrax has now put together a quality kit of the main components required to change a cracked cylinder head on the 1KZT and 1KZTE engine at a fantastic new price without skimping on quality.
Please note, the head is an exchange unit as per description details below.

So why choose RoughTrax heads?

At RoughTrax we are known for our quality of components and none more so than our cylinder heads manufactured by AMC, a long established firm manufacturing heads since the 1960's and granted ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification for passing rigorous controls of re-certification every year with the principle purpose of satisfying clients in quality and confidence.

This new AMC head casting has now been constructed to the same tolerance in casting thickness as that of Toyota's, hence why we can truly say these are the best on the market. The new construction withstands the fluctuations in temperature often found being the initial cause of cracking.

AMC are committed to improvement and in 2005 the company obtained the certification TS-16949 in accordance with the highest Original Equipment standards, simply put, the best you can buy which is why many car manufacturers fit AMC heads as standard fitment. This is obviously an important and expensive component and certainly an area that fitting poor quality components may only come back to haunt you.
AMC are Original Equipment (OE) for several car manufacturers confirming the quality, attention to detail and backing from this major Manufacturer.

Whats in the kit?

1x HEAD30BUILT - New AMC cylinder head casting built up with refurbished valves/tappets and cam as per images, also supplied loose and bagged in with the head box are 4 new "Top Hat" injector seats which must be installed into the new head before fitting the injectors etc and a replacement hose adaptor. Please Nb: This is an Exchange Unit.
1x GSH003 - Elring Head set and Elring Head Gasket 5 hole thickest head gasket equivalent to OE# 11115-67050-05 - Elring are widely recognised as the finest suppliers of head gaskets and endorsed by AMC distributors in the UK (RoughTrax has also added the 4 small injector nozzle heat washers and a conical exhaust downpipe gasket to the kit).
1x HEAD30BOLT - Cylinder head AMC bolt set.
1x CAMB012 - Genuine Toyota Cambelt.

Everything within our kit is as per the images.

Also supplied with the head are 4 new "Top Hat" injector seats and a new screw in water pipe outlet hose.

About the head:

  • This complete Exchange cylinder head is professionally hand built ready to install, comes complete with refurbished valves, cam bearings & camshaft, all the valve clearances are pre-set using shims
  • This professionally built head will ensure this procedure is carried out correctly, thus giving maximum power, peace of mind fitment, and will minimize the length of time your vehicle is off the road as its "ready to fit" therefore saving money on labour.
  • On the 1KZT(E) 3.0 litre head valve clearances are set by using many different shim thicknesses, in fact Toyota list 17 different size shims to ensure correct tolerance so unless your garage has all the different shims available, then a bare head can not be built properly. 
  • Professionally remanufactured using the new AMC casting, this head also comes with a full 12-month warranty (subject to conditions)

Product Reviews for AMC Premier 3.0 litre 1KZT & 1KZTE Cylinder Head Kit (El)

Questions & Answers for AMC Premier 3.0 litre 1KZT & 1KZTE Cylinder Head Kit (El)

Q; Is the cylinder head brand new?
A; The Cylinder Head casting is manufactured by AMC and is brand new, what's more it is the thicker type casting as per Toyota design. The internals are professionally refurbished, any components not within tolerance are replaced.

Q; Do I need to send my old unit back first?
A; No, we would normally advise shipping the AMC Head kit to your selected address first, that way any studs or the important half-moon alloy casting cap that is at the rear of the head behind the cam can be swapped over from your old unit ensuring you have everything to build your new head before we come to collect the return unit.

Q; Why do you need the old unit back if the casting is cracked?
A; Well the unit supplied would have refurbished internal components but in the AMC casting, items such as cam, valves, followers, springs, collets etc are all required in return, the casting is simply scrapped, its just easier for a customer to put the old head back in the box the new one comes in ready for RoughTrax to make collection.

Q; What is the surcharge if I don't send a head back?
A; Firstly, please let's not get to this situation, we simply need to return heads in order to help other customers that are desperately seeking to keep their vehicles running with this kit. However, If we do not receive a head in return then RoughTrax reserve the right to charge an additional amount up to £200, please ensure your fitter does not throw away the return.

Q; Can you ship this kit to another Country?
A; I'm afraid not, in order to supply the service we need the old core unit in return, past experience when we had shipped outside the UK has found us being left short of internals to build a head ready for the next customer.

Q; How does the exchange work?
A; Simples, we ship you the AMC Head kit then once you are up and running, ( that way ensuring you have all your components required for re-build), please re-box the old unit into the original box the new head comes in, then give us a call and we will make all the necessary arrangments to make a collection...... that can also be from a different address such as your garage.

Q; Is there a time limit on the return?
A; Ideally we would like a return within 2 weeks, that way the service is kept 'ticking over' in order to help future customers.
Depending on demand, from time to time Head kits can be in short supply, if that is the case we can always make arrangements to collect your own unit and turn around with 48 Hours.

Q: What is the head bolt torques?
A: Head bolt torques are provided within the AMC bolt kit. 

Q: What is the Injector torque?
A: 54nm (40 ft-lbf) is provided from Toyota data. Toyota also high-light that:

  • Over torquing could cause nozzle deformation and needle adhesion or other defects
Q: Does the new cylinder head come with the half moon plug?
No, please make sure you remove the half moon plug that is fitted to the cylinder head at the end of the camshaft on the original head and install onto the new head.
