If you are going to say NGK then maybe provide the code too. Make it easy.

Ummmm lets go with bkr6es-11 - although when you go buy them Kylie double check, at SCA there's a massive book with all you need to know (make sure you get the years right), otherwise repco can search it up for you

Maybe some direct private messages to those that expressed interest last time might help?
Looks like after the plug was pulled from the original date enthusiasm has been lost.

All the best!

If it turns pear shaped on the 22nd Nov surely you must be able to curry some favour with your workplace to fit this in or even some of the mechanics that work there who do weekend work?

Hi Everyone

I just had a phone call from my main man who was bringing tools and his mechanical know-how to say he can't make it because his employer has arranged a training day for Saturday. So, unless I can get someone here with tools, some know-how and a can do attitude... I may have to cancel this spanner day altogether.

Please please let me know if you can help.

Thanks

I'm quite desperate now (I was months ago, but I'm about ready to sign my soul over to get this done now).

I'm going to spend this weekend servicing the new engine (to the best of my ability) and next weekend (29th) we'll do the swap. I'd still really appreciate any help.

Thanks

I hate to be the one that says this, but wouldn't it have been easier/cheaper to just sell it and buy another MR2?

I found this to help me do my 3S-GE engine swap... so far, although it is VERY slow, it's working. Thought it could be useful for others too.

Massive thanks for Jason and Dylan for their help. I am so glad that I'm able to drive my Prude again.
