Perched between (what's left of) the Prado's framerails is the 32-valve 4.0L Lexus V-8-complete with the factory shroud, no less-used in the Lexus LS/SC passenger-car line from 1989 to 2001. This '98-'01 VVT-i version produces a rated 290 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque, and is still mated here to the stock Lexus four-speed and an Atlas transfer case. Also visible is the Greddy auxiliary oil cooler, and the filters and air intake have been relocated high in the open engine bay.
