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.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.

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" GT3s…no 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?
