There's a lot of bad stuff going on with the car, I want it all dealt with, I don't have the time or the interest to tackle it myself... Blank check.

The end result will be a fun, fast, more reliable car with proper wiring.. Fine by me.

The car has already been looked over by one mechanic, if it were a simple fix he would have performed the work and given me a bill for $300 rather than saying "nah don't worry about paying me until your car is fixed dude sorry I couldn't help"

It's amazing how much shattered metal bits sound like glass when they hit pavement.

I outgrew burnouts early on in my driving career. I went through tires fast enough without deliberate destruction. And I've been driving AWD for so long now I don't even think about it.

Buying a car with a half-baked swap is either brave or stupid, I guess he will find out using the scientific method.

This thread was much more-enjoyable before everyone started abusing the special kid.

Razorwind has offered sage advice -- a new harness would fix so-much. I encountered a similar run of issues with my old CoupeGT, where the genius that swapped the engine hacked up the engine and interior harnesses, something awful. A new harness and vacuum lines resolved just about all of the faults.

Ghettoraid has made it clear that he lacks the time and the wiring skills to address the issue and given the time it took me to sort out the CoupeGT wiring faults, with a sizable amount of wiring experience, I can't argue with his decision to seek out a specialist to clear the concerns in exchange for his savings account and possibly first-born. I am curious why he is being so secret-squirrel about who the specialist is... unless he is just paranoid Jahennum will dole him in to the SMOG dogs.

Seriously. There's a difference between razzing him and just being mean.

I hope it works out for him too; I loved the MR2s I had. If I happened to be in the Bay Area, I'd offer to help him fix it.
