Can't answer, but 10 years after the Great DCAT Disaster of needing to replace short engines in RAV4, Avensis, Lexus 220, I'm generally wondering what is the cheapest and most efficient way of dealing with one of those dodgy 2AD-FHV engines these days.  Has anyone worked out what else of similar power swaps in with the least hassle?

I think the problem in the UK is these cars are now valued at 2-3k so it's uneconomic to repair them.  Where I am my car is still valued at 10k plus so I'd be interested.
