I agree so easy to work on, even the EFi version with a bit more electronics was very easy compared to todays engines. Think that one was the worst of the bunch, not as good as the MFi version, not as much poke! I could whip one in and out in a few hours, k maybe a bit longer! hardest part was lining it back up with the shaft on the gearbox, lots of wiggling!

Plus the one I had blew the Head gasket and then developed a crack in the head. Car got nicked shortly after and the stupid idiots nicked the engine and left me the shell !! :loser:
Currently in Mikey's garage:
