Hi All,
I'm in a tight spot. My work has kept me from getting to installing my 7MGE motor, since I'm away for long periods.
Normally this isn't a problem, but things have changed for me and it looks like I'll be relocating permanently. Timelines are now starting to put me under some serious pressure.

Does anyone know who I could take my 4Runner and engine to who could install it and get it running? (It's either this or I need to sell it off as parts).
I know there's many engine fitters out there, but I need someone who knows these vehicles and motors. I don't want to be paying another guys school fees at this stage.

Any help pleeese. :beg:

Ask Louis at 4x4Megaworld Menlyn .... if he can't do it he can tell you who will. ;-)
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Thanks guys, you're right, I forgot about Louis actually... oops. :slap:
Gave him a call earlier this afternoon. He'll come by in the week and see if he can help me. (holding thumbs)

Hi Cyborg, I'm new to this forum but If you might be interested in another option, I have a "94 Hilux Surf with a V8 conversion that I want to sell due to its Mozambique registration, I done the conversion myself 14500km back and it's a real pleasure to drive. It could be the perfect donor for your car.

I'll be posting more details about it shortly

Just a note of thanks to Louis for popping by and giving some much needed advice (and encouragement) to get my 7 MGE installed.

Baie dankie dat jy 'n draai kom maak het :thumbup: . Ek glo ek gaan more die Bellhousing kry, dan raak ek besig met die mountings. Sal jou op hoogte hou.
