Yep, good luck with that, done few electric add ons in my time, but that way above my comfort zone. Is this a common engine swap on MR2 or uncharted territory? You're getting there though, so you know your progressing, so well done so far.
It's a pretty common swap so got a nice 40 page wiring guide

Just gota work out what goes where....

Bet your chuffed with all the hard work, you sorted the spaghetti quickly. Hopefully the good weather has moved things on a lot.

Good read that, love the 'baby wipes' tip!, well done persevering with it during the bad weather, especially if you did it outside in the elements. I'm limited to driveway spannering, but i wait for sunny days! Hope the test drive goes ok.

Cheers mate

Had another hickup wouldn't go into gear, turns out the holds had undone during the lift and so the gearbox wasn't mated properly to the engine

Seems better now so happy days
