Trade up for an SSEi.

Or that Park Avenue.




Though I would've said 7M-GTE swap if it was back then

Bah...go even older school and do the 5M-GTE...but no. The reason I got rid of the toyota is becuase it was becoming unreliable. The ignitor quit and was a cool $600 to replace and have installed. I couldn't' afford any more repairs than that.

Assuming the car is in good shape, is that a good deal? Seems a bit much

remember what we said on the forums, what you had could've been taken care of just as well for $50 (or less), but I recall your mom insisted on the $600 bill... she footed it


the price does seem a bit much on the SSEi, but I'm not too familiar with American pricing. Even if that was Canadian dollars, I'd still try to talk down.

Ok, thanks

Yeah, my mom insisted on forking the bill (which I was fine with). It looked like something that would have been uber easy to install.
