£4,500, but "unkown" mileage :duh: according to Prolex's site.

im banned from Prolex site :whistling: bhp sounds about right, but £4500 for s/h engine with no history is way way to much :o I have had supercharged Altezza, running at 310bhp, they don't run like the is200 supercharger at all :duh:

Thor Racing have a brand new BEAMS engine for sale (£4,600): Thor Racing

Yeah and they insist that the charger is a risk if the engine does not have internal upgrading.. but ive not got good knowledge of this... hence im here..

also the thor engine doesnt have a s/c attached...

The prolex engine is fitted with a blitz s/c

And.. hey gord... long time no chat... ;)

a few years ago i picked up the following altezza parts

Engine

gearbox

ecu

loom

driveshafts

differential

propshaft

front subframe

steering rack

for £500, on an engine that had done only 11,000 miles

4500 is way too much, even with supercharger, with unknown milage,

the engine that THOR is selling, im sure came from Janspeed, and was offered to me a few years ago for £2000, well they did have about 8 to get rid off

WOW, thats a monsterous difference... you stil have all that stuff you picked up!!! :winky: haha

Well as i said, i wasnt sure if it was a good price or not and if the performance was good or not ... AND if it was a stronger engine or not.. but dont seem to be all that promising from the comments here!

Yes you have to be very curious with Dave (prolex) these days, as he is still saying things he knows nothing about, had email of someone the other week, asking about pistons,turns out Dave had told him the wrong info about pistons in turbo charged engines, not good really :ohmy:

ps. and if i know Dave.....its still in Japan and he can get it for you :whistling:

no such thing as Yamaha tuned, all that happened was Yamaha helped develop the cylinder head.....

its all very well getting the engine, but you need all the other bits aswell

Ok ok......... im just quoting what the seller said... as stated above if i knew i wouldnt be on here asking...

:whistling:

Breakthrough Engine with Advanced Management System.. Toyota France say this was developed/tuned by yamaha... (3S-GE)

Again, DONT jump down my throat, just passing on info that im given and seeing if anyone knows better or can tell me why its wrong!

;) ;)
