Brotha, all I got to say is that you have done some outstanding work! I love the detail you put into your process and having the photos to document the step by step situation. By the way, I'm digging your garrage too. it is always nice to have a secure spot to do your work (I miss having a garrage).
I'm hoping to get more work done on my SC over the next 4 months. it's just a little harder when yo uare out of the country, but thanks for the boot in the ***. i need to get back on project.

Again, great work man. Maybe I'll see you out on the road someday.
Be Easy.....

I must congratulate you on one of the cleanest swaps I've ever seen. The attention to detail is amazing - the intake shield, the valve covers, right down 10W-30 sticker next to the oil cap!

Well done sir

Wow, I'm speechless!! If you had posted that you purchased your motor straight from Toyota, I wouldn't have doubted you for a minute! This is a perfect example of how a swap should be done, and the most incredible part is that you did it all yourself in your garage!

Also, your interior is incredible as well! The entire car is perfect! You should take some pics and forward to Toyota to be placed in the Toyota museum!!

Hats off to you and mad props!! Excellent job again!

wow, Amazing, I'm truely inspired. I think I might forget about buying an m5 and build my sc. Best swap ever. One question, where did you get the info on pulling apart the engine and putting it back together with the right torque specs and such.
