Looking To Buying A Gs430 Engine (need Advive And Help)

Recommended Posts

I'm not really a Lexus owner, I own a Toyota. I know it may seem that I'm one of those lower class peasants but hey, we're in the same kingdom right?

Anyways I got a stock 5-speed, supra mk4 non-turbo. I was thinking if the engine ever broke down or if I got enough money in the future, I could swap it for a V8 instead.

I came across the 3UZ-FE (The kind they have in those fancy Lexus cars) and I think it's the right choice since the old GS430 had UZ-GE engines. Don't want to put a cheap domestic V8 in it like a camaro or mustang engine cuz they are unreliable.

And so finally, I ask you this: Is this a legit site in your opinion?

How much do you think it costs for a brand new or used 3UZ-FE engine (Canadian money please)? Where would you get it from? Is it worth doing an engine swap like that?

Thanks
