I realise some would consider this sad, but I've always thought the look alone of the original LS engine was a visual masterpiece.  Now they've got plastic over them but I can remember how much I loved the look of my 93 LS engine!

I do like a look of a good engine, no one should have a Lego engine bay. 

It’s the don’t work on your own car bring it to a dealer world we live in with finance up the eyeballs.

Yes - it just doesn't suit the car

True, but the early engine was different, everything was visible so it was manufactured in such a way that it was pleasing to the eye.👀 The later one with the cover off looks a mess.

I fitted the later engine upper cover on mine, an extra bracket and a few nuts to fit.

Agreed. Extra budget for detailing the 1UZ intake manifold with the T or L depending on market Last decent looking engine to come from Toyota.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
