I don't care about emissions, just don't cut down the forests, but the problem is that fuel price rises.
I wish that they continued development of the 2jzge---and that is the reason why I'm keeping my IS300. It was basically the last application of the engine, and the first gen IS.

It was probably easier to simply modify the VQ engine rathern then put further R&D into an engine for *one* low-production model (sound familiar?).
