They are. I've gotten to the point the first person crosses the TN/GA line and hands me $250 can have the damn engine. LOL. I'm never gonna need it.

lol.I hear you. You probably will never need it. I have seen an SC400 with over 500k miles and still running. If only I wasn't decided to drop in a 2jzgte on this sc400 I could have grabbed it from you. It had been a while now since I had that obsession of having a 2jzgte on an SC, even before I had my Supras.

In fact I already ordered the JDM Supra 6 speed swap I will use. Will just use the engine and not the 6 speed tranny since am planning to keep the car with an auto tranny.

An A340 built by BL which was in one of the Auto TT supra I once had. So it should handle the power I am aiming for on this daily beater.
