Of course Marc, no worries...next Anglian meet I can get to, won't be as powerful as a tubby but should still be way quicker than my old GE [Smile]

Paul @ Woodsport charges 2500 for a drive in drive out swap including him supplying the donor Camry, I'm not 100% sure how that breaks down with regard to labour versus engine/parts etc.

Not much to update this with today, but it has been started and runs woo hoo.

Apexi filter and various other bits re-attached



Restrictive Camry 'T' piece exhaust downpipes replaced with better flowing 'Y' merged pipes. Fabricated by Mr Woods (tacked together waiting to be fully welded) [Smile]

Does that include you keeping your old engine or is that taken in a kind of PX type of arrangment.

Yes, the price includes crating your old engine and shipping it back to you (or where ever else).

Paul's work really is second to none. [thumleft]

Hi Matt,

The paintwork is all done by Paul to my colour scheme and is included in the drive in drive out price [Smile]
The man is an absolute legend with the way he bends over backwards to get the car exactly as you want it.

Seconded .. no other MR2 garage gives value like Woodsport, the pride he takes in his work and the level of customer satisfaction really is legendary.

My 2nd V6 starts this month ... [Smile]

Damn You ive got a V6 hankering now [Drool]

Im quite tempted now Turbo's great and everything but for balls out v6 loveliness for from what i can read about is very little if noticable at all power loss over a tubby.
Im really tempted now The fact that it will do the planned trip i have later in the year without needing an oil change half way back would be good.

What is the servicing like on these?

Hi Bob,

How good would that look polished????mmmmm, bet you've been thinking about it!

Must've been hard letting go of the 3sGE after all the work you've done though, been offered a tubby engine to put in mine and although I want want want, it'll be a shame top let the engine go.

I think your engine will get snapped up which will help go towards the V6. If you get enough I might be next.

Any chance of you doing a matching firewall heatshield to go with the fantastic manifold one. Will fit on every MK2 too so should shift. [Pray] [Pray] [Pray]

Cheers

Marc

There's very little loss over a Rev 1/2, a bit more with a Rev 3 ... but, the delivery, in my opinion is just so much better. Smoother. B roads are just so much nicer in a V6. Less twitchy on the corners.

Cheap as chips mate - it's a Camry engine, will go 3 times around the clock if maintained - and with the way Woodsport strip them down and replace all the gaskets, then you're onto a winner.
