Does anyone know where the Duraforce engine was built? Also have they been lasting as long as the old OMC engines? I have read that it was built in Asia for many Toro applications. They seem to be just as good as an "F" longevity wise. Although I am not certain that they have any more power.

Mail to Toro themselves. The V engines are very similar to the Duraforce too
