Anyone know how much a 7MGTE short block costs from Toyota?
After reading the rod knock sticky, it appears that sloppy machine work and incorrect rebuilding has attributed to a lot of failed 7Ms out there. My hp goal is 350 to 400 to the wheel. Nothing drastic at all. I have been looking at the 1J and the 7M route. PLEASE don't start a 7m debate but I have ridden in two 1Js and I prefer the 7M. With that said, I don't mind spending the money to do it right and have a long healthy life with the 7M. Why is buying a Toyota shortblock considered being a non "normal person" Can anyone recommend a shop that can rebuild a bulletproof bottom end in Florida?jz_killa_t68 said:From what I am reading, it does seem like you have the money to spend (cause any normal person wouldn't even consider getting a new engine from the factory).
I think a normal person would consider exactly that.jz_killa_t68 said:(cause any normal person wouldn't even consider getting a new engine from the factory).
