So i recently bought a non-vvti 2jz-gte. The seller advertised it as an aristo motor which is what I think it is, however, there are a few things about it that made me raise my brow. For one, the spark plug/valve cover is red. I haven't really seen any others like that before, they're usually black or blue. It also has a manual transmission ecu. Another thing was he said when he bought it from a JDM importer, it had a rear sump pan on it that he sold for a front. Now take that last one with a grain of salt since there is no real way to verify, that could just be a story. Any input on what i have here, or any way to distinguish would be appreciated.
