Hi all, not to sur how this will go down but hay ho,
My nane is geoff and i'v just compleated what i belive to to the only alfa to toyota mr2 conversion.
Started with my 1989 mk1 mr2 that had a 1.6 4A GE engine around 124bhp.
The clutch was on its way out so looking on ebay for a clutch and started looking at v6 engines as you do. Always been in my minde to do a conversion but didnt want to folloe the croud with the camry swop. So i found a 1990 164 3.0 v6 12v engine box loom shafts and ecu.
The work then started with the removal of the old engine very easy job.
Didnt have much to do to the new lump not long been serviced with belts ect just a new clutch. again not to bat with it on a pallet in the garage.
Had the alfa drive shaft ends machined to fit mr2 hubs and a 20mm and 25mm
spacer made to extend the shafts.
After the engine bay was cleared of the old mounts and pipe work moved it was time to see if the new lump wold infact fit. Well you know it did or i wouldnt be hear.
It was very tight but once it was in and driveshafts on the engine was lined up and new mounts made and fitted. The hard work was done well thats what i thought.
Pluming was simple.
But the i moved on to the wiring running a standard 164 ecu i had to splice the loom and sort out starting with no real experiance to talk about it was a real test. long nights in the garage testing each wire but slowly it all came together and she lives
The car is now driving. she goes like a rocket very diffrent to how she was before if feels like shes all grown up now.
Still things to do as always but hope to find the help on hear to finisher to a high reliable standard.
