Too true. I have a 25 year old Celica All Trac Turbo with a variable intake similar in concept to DISA and it still works as it should. There are no plastic parts in the Toyota design. Toyota design uses dual intake runners for each cylinder and individual throttle butterflies for the secondary runners for each cylinder. At rpm above ~3000, the butterflies open to admit more airflow. At lower rpm, they stay shut for higher velocity in the intake charge and more torque. I have almost 200K miles on that engine and it still runs reliably. I love my bimmers but the only one that came close to the Toyota in reliability and durability was my long gone 89 535i 5 spd.
