    Engine swap?

    Well it looks like the engine swap is going to cost me more than I thought and a lot of changes to be made so recently I've been thinking of buying a MX5 and selling the Mirca...

    Engine swap?

    I would love to do this myself but sadly I dont know how to weld so I'd need someone else to fab everything up for me, which will cost. 4WD would be awesome but I don't know how much of a difference in price that would be to do.

    Engine swap?

    Ok well I'm defo more into getting this engine now, would the roll cage be something you can help me out with? or I can ask a couple of places near me and see what the cost is like.

    Engine swap?

    Ok so the coilovers aren't a waste then, just will need the springs re-rated with a heavier engine? I will have to see what kind of labor is involved and may do the MR2 engine provided no one buys it by the time I'm ready. If the MR2 comes with the gearbox and I keep the car FWD would it require...

    Engine swap?

    I know the MR2 was just a thought for yourself, just when I saw the price of one it made me think this is cheap compared to the others I've researched. (haven't looked everywhere) I just liked the idea of doing something different but I guess with my lack of knowledge maybe I should just stick...

    Engine swap?

    This may sound stupid but because I don't really know what I'm doing I've created a list of things to consider for an engine swap, unsure if I have everything. After Andy suggested his next project with the MR2 engine, I did a quick search and found one that I cannot beat in price compared to...

    What insurance company do you go with for an engine swap. I've been told by my current insurer, I wont be insured with an engine swap.

    Engine swap?

    I've seen a couple of polo 6n on youtube that have RWD bike engines and they seem like that have got loads of power and they do sound nice. No idea what the top end is like.

    Engine swap?

    Has anyone on here done a bike engine before? Not sure how practical that would be, and probably more work involved. Would be pretty cool to have a RWD micra

    Engine swap?

    £26.02.... wtf!!! how on earth did you manage that!! lol So your basically saying cg13 would be best for my money and if I get bored of the power, upgrade parts.. and tubro etc. Would I need bigger brakes, and would they fit 13's? Sounds crazy... just had a quick look at that engine and found...

    Engine swap?

    Hi guys, I'm running the standard ma10 in my k10. However, I'm getting a little bored of the shortage of power and top end. Carrying out an engine swap is way above my knowledge and skill set, let know having the correct tools and equipment for the job. So I'd have to pay someone to do it or it...
