now if the designers would have a heart and think about the ones that have to service it, then maybe we would all be happy. I blame autocad for alot of the problem, it may fit but can you work on it?!!

This must be why a single exhaust valve from Toyota is more than 100 dollars nz.

I am subsidizing this kids jollies.

I looked at an on-line discount auto parts source (RockAuto.com) here in USA. Entered a random vehicle - 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser. Exhaust valve. 3 choices all under $20-US.
Is $100NZ Toyota Dealer price?

Of course from the dealer.

Could not locate an aftermarket one here.

Cost to manufacture/modify was close.

I repair cars for a living so time is a concern as well as cost.
