I did a quick search and came accross nothing, So , I thought I'll start a new thread. I've been looking into VIP cars, as a possibility for a car next year. At the moment my main choice is a Cefiro, however one car has caught my eye as excellent value overall. The Toyota Celsior aka Lexus LS400. Equipment levels are very nice for the price and they look very nice. But, I'd be interested to find out a couple things if anybody could help me.
Model in question is the 1989 model, like this one:
1. I know they're a 4.0L V8, But, Which engine exactly do they use? Is it the same engine as the Soarers?
2. Is a manual conversion possible using the V8 engine, or would the car need to be converted to 1JZ, 2JZ or similar?
