Put it in the cressida! If it fits in a supra it will fit in the cressida!

Wow, never seen one here. I've heard of them from the coordinators at the plant. These are basically hand built engines that go in the Toyota limo. I'd seen the article on the Supra before that was the first time I'd seen one used in something other than the limo.

Wow, that is kinda cool.

Lol, hell of a Yota status symbol there.

Stick one in my Tercel.

I would spend $5,000 and buy a different car.

Gimmi your man card, rights have been revoked. Gimmi your celica too, obviously it's not good enough for you.

Man, that thing is huge. Would you need to cut into the firewall to fit everything? I mean, it would be so close you could touch it with the tip of your... kneecap. That would burn.

Man, I thought I saw your nuts floating around in NSFW. Must have sold them. :laugh:

Am I the only one who sees that and thinks, "Man, replacement parts for that would be a bitch"??

There's no doubt that'd be sick as hell... but man replacement parts for that would be a bitch!

If I'm going to have a big motor it's going in a rwd car.

You'd need to go RWD to use that in an alltrac.

Crazy small V12 though (5.0L). Bet that thing is as smooth as butter. That would be one hell of a project.

Apparently the Century had stock twin fuel pumps and adjustable suspension. Sick.

I'm already having enough fun with that with a 185... As long as Lithia or someone can bring in the part, it's not a big deal IMO. That said:

water pump - completely unique
oil pump - completely unique
starter - completely unique
alternator as a whole - completely unique
alternator rotor - found in a bunch of cars
coil on plugs - same as a Tercel and Paseo?

And thus, still not all that common.

A century (from the Latin centum, meaning one hundred; abbreviated c.) is one hundred consecutive years.

I'll admit to googling it as it pertains to Toyota.

It would never work in an MR2... Pretty bad ass though.
