Yes it was a luverly engine. The block was wrapped in a rubberised coat, kept the noise down and the heat up. The website is a company based in Wales, in uk. The price would be 4950+ vat (english pounds), but that is for the conversion, with them supplying the NEW engine and doing all the work to your truck. Obviously not YOUR truck. So one might say the engine was 3500 + vat @20%, ( which you prob wouldn't have to pay if it was exported). You may also get a good deal from japan direct? I've often said that if my engine blew up catastrofically, I'd have one of these fitted again, but it'd cost what my truck is worth. often get s/h ones come up on uk forums and e-bay. trouble is you don't know what your buying. would you want new or 2nd hand?
