    Yamaha and Toyota connection?

    I recently took my Toyota in to a shop to have some work done to it.
    And the technician told me that the head on this engine was built by Yamaha, well this surprised me.
    And he also said that Yamaha was owned by Toyota.
    Can anyone verify if this is true?

    Google says they did help design a higher-revving engine, but that Toyota only owns 4.5% of Yamaha. Look up the Ford Taurus SHO if you're not familiar.
