Hi, my apologies, I should have included the Diesel Corolla's as well I forgot about this one.

Also, there is a guy in Hamilton who just done this conversion on his Blade. He had a couple of guys from Tauranga make up a single piece flywheel as he wants to keep it the same thickness as the dual mass flywheel that these transmissions normally get paired with. The other engineering company welded the starter motor mount onto the bell housing because these transmissions have the starter motor set up from behind the engine which won't work with the 2GR. There is a slot in the bell housing that you can use to mount the starter over the transmission. He also had to add in a Clutch Master Cylinder which works off getting fluid from the reservoir of the brake master cylinder. I think from memory the reservoir was around US$70 without shipping.

Hopefully this inspires the conversion on your Blade :D

Some new goodies from the kids for Xmas and manage to put some primer on the bonnet, boot & doors (still a bit of work to be done as the air pressure wasn't right so had a bit of a streak on the bonnet which was fixed by the time we finished last night)

Thanks mate, long journey but I hope it will be worth it once everything is completed. It's exciting to get the base primer in even with the air pressure issues but we will get there:)

Thanks mate, since you are in town, we will be able to take it for a run once completed. It will be good comparison between the GR & MZ. Hope to get into opening it up later today
