I've owned 2 3800 Series II and one supercharged 3800 II. and the only problem I ever was the Lower intake gaskets on the N/A engines, which was only a 2 hour job on all 3 cars... I'd take another one over the piece of shit 60* 3900 My current impala has.
bmw s70 v12
ID RATHER BE A CUMMING THAN A STROKIN XDXDX SPARKPLUGS ARE FER PUSSIES
I'n all seriousness though, I love Subaru because their engines are so streamlined and easy to work on. Mine has a tendency to leak oil though.
Sort of car related, I like the 3 cylinder Kubota Diesel that the older models have, I'm reppin a 1979 B6100 with 4x4 and a loader
i love the sex a boxer puts out with the right exhaust system on it.
Dads 455 V8
Going to be working on it next few days
The Cosworth DFV introduced to F1 in the 60's
Absolutely incredible engine used up until 1985 it was so good.
The b230F is a nice engine, not as easily modified as a b20 or b18, but way more...modern
The engine was designed for a Lexus, but is still a Toyota engine at its core.Everyone posted:
Do more research
Like here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_UZ_engine
As you can see it is a Toyota engine, but has alot of Lexus applications.
So generally it is seen in a Lexus, but its still a Toyota
Honda is the same way with Acura, which is how we get sweet rare valve covers for Honda engines:
D16Y8 VTEC in Honda:
D16Y8 VTEC in Acura EL:
Toyota also does the badge engineering bit with Scion, but Scion isn't luxury like Toyota/Lexus or Honda/Acura. Or, with Nissan/Infiniti. The G35? Skyline V35. M30? Silvia-like Nissan Leopard. Q45? Nissan Cima or whatever. I don't remember any of the other ones. I know all G series have been Skylines up past G35, and the M and... Maybe J, were both Leopards. I think.
Anyways, Toyota engine, Toyota cars. Lexus is just a name. They don't even do anything.
pop a scion tc's hood boom toyota symbol on the valve cover cover.
my 1mz lexus es 300, different heads than the toyota 1mz and made a whooping 12 more hp lol said lexus on the engine cover.
This is more due to SAE's calculations than anything, there are only minor differences between the Lexus ES300 and Camry engine, but more ideally, the actual TOYOTA variant of the ES300 is identical in every way.
ford econobox engines are pretty neat.
an ordinary gas 160 hp engine that still gets 40 mpg with no eco turbocharger or hybrid nonsense
when the 1mz camry motor had normal heads the lexus had vvt.
the add on of llr tires and grill block boosts them a few more but it is an add on to their nicer car.
I know I'll probably get flamed but take a look at the LNF and LSJ Ecotec engines. They came in the Turbo Cobalt/Pontiac Solstice GXP/Saturn Sky Redline (LNF) and Supercharged Cobalt/Saturn Ion Redline (LSJ). They can put out pretty decent power without engine work. Some people put down 350+ on the LSJ without it going boom with NO reinforced rods/block/pistons.
Every modern Toyota engine had some form of VVT, until VVT-i. The Camry and Lexus 1MZ-FE pre-1998 are identical, save for the coilpack arrangement on a couple of models.
A TRD 1MZ-FE supercharger will bolt to and work with any NON VVT-i 1MZ-FE, which means any 1MZ-FE built from 1998 back.
If I ever get a 67 Impala I'm putting an a 540 Chevy Big Block
460 Big block ford... I wish I could shoehorn one into my cobra without a TON of work.. other wise I would be enjoying actually have torque...
Once saw one of those early 50s Fords with a 500+ cid Cadillac engine in it, kind of ratty but really clean, like an old moonshiner car.
It was at th--Holy shit the swap meet, that shit happens this weekend!
why do i like this
Is that a Mitsubishi 380/Galant? I'm in one of those super curious moods right now and it's been bugging me.
Mitsubishi 3000GT/FTO Dodge Steal--well, not a Dodge Stealth. The first gen FTO was the Stealth, they discontinued the Stealth right when the FTO got good looking.
Shit wow, yeah, what in the fuck was I thinking.
Sorry, that was general dumbassery on my part.
I need sleep.
Here's my engine
Not a big v8 pickup (sorry guys lol), but it does the job
wait fuck i just realised! its missing the ECU cover (big plastic thing on left) since it was at the garage!!! >:(
ecu in the engine bay?
interesting... I still prefer mine behind the dash
I would love to have a CCE in my car.
For anyone interested in what a controlled combustion engine is:
Chaparral's 372 Chevy used in the 2D
The engine in the pic sits in a 1958 Lister-Chevrolet “Knobbly” Sports Racing Car, but it was used in the 2D there.
Powaaaaaaaa! Imagine dropping that in an old Pontiac or Buick beater.
Holy shit, I forgot that car existed. This older gentleman had one of those (The 2D) in my old town, it was black with white racing numbers.
