N8N, sometime you ought to read Joey's long political rantings
on alt.autos.TOYOTA . It seems all Joey does all day
is post politics in a Toyota newsgroup and attack Jeff.

Clarity of purpose is a good thing. Try it sometime.

I think it was Buick. Had an Aluminium engine in something like '62.
V8, I think it was 300 ci. I did a brake job on one of those cars once
and really liked driving it. So when I gave it back to the girl that
owneed it I tried to explain that it was of utmost concern that this
car NEVER be over heated. Always check coolant and have a GOOD
radiatoer, fan belt, water pump, etc....One year later she was trying
to sell it to me because "We think it's only the head gasket". Right.
Aluminium warps really good.

The engine was 215 cubic inches and had cast iron liners. GM sold the
tooling to British Leyland and they continued to produce it for years.
I think Ford finally stopped producing it when they bought Land Rover
(but according to wikipedia, it is still in production at third
party). Oldsmobile sold a turbocharged version. It was sold in various
Buick, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac intermediate sized cars (included the
Tempest that used a transaxle with IRS).

The 2AZ-FE has a variant 2AZ-FXE for hybrid cars.
By the way, the supercharged 2AZ-FE's found on some of the Scion tC,
are there other modifications on the engine or just added the super
charger? Would you be able to fit a supercharger on a camry, rav4 or
