Looking to upgrade the size of my ride and hoping to make it an alphard or elgrand. Probably won't happen for about another year, but I want to know if anyone knows a mechanic in Winnipeg who will actually look at either of these engines? I think they both have engines that are the equivalent to other north american models...?

     Electrical / service diagrams would be greatly beneficial. 
    The Toyota uses common Camry motors that are the same this side of the pond. Anyone that touches toyota should be ok doing it, just since the motors buried under the cowl, expect any larger service to be 3x more labour intensive.

      why wouldn't you just get a more common domestic market minivan?

        You can't get the same value for the price. Plus, you get AWD and a bunch of other features that just make domestic mini vans seem boring.
