190?

With out driving a Celica gen 7 190, are there visible signs that it really is a 190?

I've seen an import that doesn't say 190 on the back, infact is just has a letter S on the back.

Thanks

Rev counter goes higher in the 190 (10K rpm?) than the 140 (8K rpm?)... Shows how much attention I pay to my dials when I'm driving!!

Plastic engine cover says VVTLi on 190, and VVTi on 140.

They're pretty much the only guarenteed visual differences as far as I am aware...

You get the same 190 engine in the lotus elise 111R as well eh? Thats my dream car, would be nippier than a GT4, though I'll need to progress ALOT more my career for one of those. Sorry for going off on a tangent...

Oh, and forgot to say, welcome to the club matey!  Just noticed its your first post....

Another Derby boy as well!  What kind of MR2 you driving?

Thanks for the info. Do you know if any of the documentation should back up the fact it's a 190?

Oh and it's a bright red Mk2 T-bar MR2. It's ok, goes well, just no space to spare! So I think it's gonna have to ba a Celica next. :thumbsup:

What do you guys think about imports with regard to insurance, parts, toyota servicing, performance etc? Or are all things equal these days?! :wacko:

The cc is slightly higher on the 190 than on the 140 - check out the pinned subjects at the top of the forum for the Gen 7 Specifications. A VVTL-i (190) engine will have a slightly larger displacement (1796cc) than the 140 (1794cc) and will show up in the V5 registration document (or similar).

Hope that helps :thumbsup:
