Car in the shop with possibly a cracked block and will need engine options. Have priced out new longblock but wanted to see if there is anything out there used on this. Any help would be appreciated.

2010 Evora with manual trans.

My totalled 2011 (front end) just sold on ebay. Engine has 10,350 miles on it. Not sure who bought it but it is out there somewhere. Maybe backtrack through seller (disassembler in Northern Calif.)
Good luck!

Something did not go right after taking delivery of car after a clutch install. Piston is showing a crack on the head of it and internally might be a bit worse.

Was quoted 14K on a new replacement but customer is wanting to go used if I can locate it.

LcKitty, any chance you can find out who purchased yours? Finders fee!!!

it is the exact same engine as the camry v6, rav4 v6, etc. Anything with the 2GR-FE (the wikipedia article details all the US cars it came with)

You just need to evora trans and Lotus ECU, as well as the proprietary parts (air intake post throttle body, engine mounts, etc)

I believe that the Rav 4, 2 GR-FE has the oil-water exchange cooler, that the Camary does not have.Otherwise they are the same.

I'm sure you're right. There is a not-unsubstantial list of parts that you do need for the Evora that don't necessarily come with the Toyota cars; however, if those parts aren't grenade on the current Evora and you just need the block, you should be in business.

You can send the engine to germany, i think for around $8k they build you a 450hp+ non supercharged evora ready to install engine. I think i read they can push it to 550hp but no recommended for street.

Good point !
Just use any donor 2GR-FE as a long block, and transfer the proprietary Lotus stuff over.
I think Ramtin bought his low mileage donor for a few thousand $. I considered buying one, and building a performance engine, but too many California smog considerations.
