I noticed gasoline stank for a month or so

3 fridays ago the Car had a wiring fault that caused fuel to empty into cylinders hydrolocking the motor

First mechanic figured it was a bad startrr he replaced it didnt help
He burned it out and tried another. Obv just sat there cranking it which burned a ground out.

Towed to mr2 specialist who said my wiring harness was a disaster. Grounds missing dmged etc. Oil had gas in it.

He repaired everything but the car still ran rough as hell. We saw silvery shite in the oil he drained out. Said drive it it might fix itself.

Specifically said replacing the plugs was optional.

Car ran like warmed over shit, i had to buy this long block before this dude sold it to somebody else. Bought it saturday.

Changed plugs today. Started car up it ran better but not perfectly. Then i ate dinner,,went out for a vape and took pics of the plugs. Then sat down and checked the may.

Posted pics cuz razor asked for em. Noticed one of the plugs was smashed after zooming in. retrirved thr plugs from trash and confirmed,,he dropped one of em
Derrrp.

It's possible that you dropped that one after you removed it. <shrug>

If it's still not running properly, do what I said about checking for vacuum leaks.

Edit: You did check the gap on the new plugs, right?
Edit2: You could also do as someone said, and bend that plug back into shape and reinstall the iridiums. They look fine to me; maybe just a little lean (which would make sense if you're running lean due to a vacuum leak).

I didnt drop them. The new plugs are gapped to factory spec .32.

Im expecting new pre gapped oem ngk iridiums on weds. I wouldnt want to run them anyway theyre colder than stock and my boost isnt turned up at all

He redid the vac lines allegedly but ill look it all over... He resolved the high idle that ive had since i got the car i suspect the vac lines are perfect

so yeah on my drive home from my friends house tonight, having let it cool down for about 3 hours... It fired up flawlessly, didn't stumble AT ALL...

When standing over the engine while its running it sounds a little "off" but I'm betting that running perfectly gapped OE NGK plugs will finish this little project off...

Obviously just a careless mistake, the car is improved compared to when all of this started... But I'm glad I didn't get deeper into the engine swap project than I already am.

P/O of motor is willing to work out a straight across trade, he takes the motor back, plus I give him my Gen 3 MR2 ECU as well as my Celica ECU and I get the Power FC I've wanted all along.
