  1. Brillaint, thankyou very much MAt. Much appreciated.
  2. Can somebody please confirm either way if the LS430 and GS430 are fundamentally the same block/engine? I have read the only difference is the ECU. Will and LS430 transplant into a GS430 with no problem - obviously if ancillaries need changing over please can you give me an idea also. May Thanks, Seb
  3. I've found...at last...an LS430 engine at a reasonable price and the company is seems good and not assocaited with The engine Centre/heathtrow engine/rivermeade engineering! Can someone please tell me exactly what are the differences [if any] between the LS and the GS430 engines as it is to go in a GS430. Many Thanks for any and all help, much appreciated.

  5. Anybody else? please! Also, International Car Spares/sales in Oldham - anyone heard of them or had any experience with them.
  6. cheers bud, thanks for replying. Much appreciated.
  7. Hi everyone, just wondered if anybody could give me the names of any trusted Parts suppliers (2nd hand/refurb type) Have been in contact with 2 - "Macc Parts" (also known as Japauotparts) in Birmingham and Mr Engine" does anyone have any experience with these 2 companies or any others for that matter. Thanks in advance!
  8. well - my friend (who is as honest and trustworthy as they come!) has had the car since first registration. He did point outthe irony of asying how reliable they are when it was sat ther ewith no engine! He has had it serviced since new by Lexus-Guildford and since the engine blew and the yquoted £13,800 for new engine has taken to driving something else! He tells me he thinks it wassomethign to do with the fact that the was somehow an oil leak which coincided wit hfaulty dash oil warning (he thinks) and bascially the engine seized.
  9. Hi everyone - new to the forum as about to take the plunge [hopefully] with a '01 GS430SE - however I need an engine lol! does any body know of a good engine refurb compnay that can supply an engine for this? Have located an 18Kmile one for £1995 - would I be silly to not take that up? Any/All help much appreciated
  10. sorry, that was badly written first post. I don't have a GS300 at present but have been offered a GS430 in need of a new engine - everything else on it is spotless and it is a great car. so am trying to source a replacement. Dealer just quoted me £13,800 for a new one...have been told you can get good reconditioned ones for around £2,500.
  11. Just re-read my post and it sn't that clear - I'm not doing an conversion, sorry! just looking for a replacement engine for a GS430 (am currently driving a 3.0V6 and looking forward to stepping up a grade so to speak, lol!) DOes anybody know ball park figures for new engines for 2000 gs430's?
  12. Hi everyone - am very close to becoming the proud owner of a GS430. However, I need to find a new engine for it! Where is a good place to look? am after, ideally a new-new engine and not a second hand one. Any help would be gratefully receieved! Looking forward to making the step-up from 3.0V6 to 4.3V8!
