    Looking on line, I saw something that I'm curious about. Does Toyota sub out the Tacomas to Iszuzu or however the heck you spell it??? Anyone know or am I the last to know? Also, does anyone know how to ID a correct head on a 2.7L4??
    Casting #'s or ID/part #'s???

    Toyota makes the Taco only for the North American market. To my recollection, Toyota has never farmed out the Taco to be built by anyone else. At one time the Isuzu pick-up was a re-badged Chevy S-10. Tacos are NOT sold by any other name by any other car maker.
