AustinAltezza said:i checked the prices on the Lexus V8 1UZFE (4.3L vvt-i) they are super cheap around $500-$1000 reason is because this engine was so strong and durable no body needed a replacement so there really was a demand in the engine market. i guess alot of the money would go into the labor of fitting the engine and transmission.
that's what it would cost them, but it would be less for a joe shmo. Mainly because they probably captured the cost of the car, the cost of the LS430(which I think they had to crush and send back), the cost of flying people in to get it working, the cost of the consulting, and etc...superchargedIS200 said:and why doesnt it make sense......im sure TTE would lie to me, seeing as i am there every other month :crazy:
