blah. my favorite liquor store across the freeway was closed when i got there at quarter past 8 this morning... & the nazi turdlet troll-lady at the nearby 7-11 refused to believe i'm not over 17... need nicotine, damnit. gonna go try again...

have decided the route i'm gonna go with the MR2 is the 1.8-liter 7AFE shortblock from a later corolla/celica. the bottom end of the engine is the only part that needs replacing, and i can think of few mods as effective as an extra two-tenths of a liter. an article here indicates this should be doable without too much drama.

now i've just gotta see where i can find one the cheapest. i want to get these cars running and sold, damnit.

ok, off ISO nicotine.

Wait wait-


If your goal is simply to get the car running and sell it, why care about this head-block mix and match thing to get an extra .2l when the jackoff who buys it probably isnt going to care either way?

Re: Wait wait-

because the 1.8 liter engine costs the same used as the 1.6, and the head gaskets for the two motors are the same. only special part you need is a 944 timing belt to run the cams with; everything else basically swaps onto the new shortblock from the old one.

& ostensibly, having a 1.8liter motor will increase the value of the car a little bit...

Re: Wait wait-

Ahh- I thought it was more complicated than that-
