Hi all

My adaptor plate has finally arrived and been offered up to the cosworth V6.
After looking at several options for a suitable gearbox I've decided to go with a E53 gearbox from a mark 2 toyota mr2 turbo. Some of the turbo guys run upwards of 400bhp!! Now these are getting quite rare and when the do come up they are snapped up within minutes or are quite pricey still requiring a rebuild. So my next option was a complete car.
Well after searching for a few weeks a suitable donor car appeared and the deal done. Low 89,000 Kilometer jap import car (not miles) dry stored for the last 4 years. I'm not a big fan of stripping rare cars that should really be put back on the road but I will sell on what I don't need-everything else apart from the gearbox/drive and intermediate shafts/starter motor/flywheel/clutch and gear selector with all cables.
