lol those of us who are sensitive in details right?

honestly, last spring when we heard lexus was "working on the car", i already had a feeling it's more than just turning, i was already wondering if that's going to be a different engine, ie one that's going to the next generation.

i am glad that's true

I'm just glad they finally abandoned the oil operated variable cam timing. I have a feeling it is at the root of the ugly noises some of us have at idle.

Here are a few more exclusive photos courtesy of Jim L. of Lexus USA. Seems like they are boxing up the new engine!

Again big thank you to Lexus USA for their support and information!

I've been tracking GT3 prices for almost a year now and 996 GT3s have gone up $10k in the past 6 months. You want a white one? Another $5k on top of that. I'm also talking about "non-abused" GT3sno track time etc.

Does that intake manifold look different on the RC-F motor? Maybe its just one of the injector driver ecus hanging to the side that make it look oddly shaped?
