The engines were designed and built by TRD in Costa Mesa, California.
Nobody is selling a production vehicle with a carburetor anymore either, but it doesn't matter. The only parts supplied by Ford and Chevy are the blocks and the heads. There are strict guidelines the engines and associated parts have to comply with, including the fact that they can have only one camshaft, which makes pushrods mandatory.
I took some really good pictures of a spare Toyota engine at a race last year, if you want to see one up close and personal. The link will be below, and the pics are about halfway down the page.
