I think it is, but if a Gen 1 is what someone wants/needs, the supply is going down, driving prices higher. I don't think there is another Gen 1 on eBay, if that is any indication of supply. Most old Toyota engine resellers seem to do business on eBay.

That was my feeling as well.

Managed to find a ST165 complete engine with transmission.
At this point I am pretty confident that from the 2 engines i should be able to make one.
Now all is left is to get at it. 8)

So not worth it for that price. Swapped a few of mine with later Gen motors. I literally gave away those 1st Gens. I'd never go back either. They're smoking crack for that price. That thing should fetch for no more than $500-$600, realistically.
