yes, more torque, that's why that engine was more suited to the auto box.
With the peak power being so high in the rev range on the 3SGE ... they were not terribly quick off the line. Have to keep the revs up, but that's part of the fun

How the hell do you "reshell" a 98 rev5 and put a 93 reg on it?

To avoid VRT I reckon - either way that car isn't road legal - I'd say that was the one going for €900 in Cavan / Monaghan a while ago on UK plates

93 Engine in a 98 Shell = 98 Plate

98 Engine in a 93 Shell = 93 Plate

guyis seriously chancing his arm here - game will be up when NCT inspect VIN number

Looks a bit weird to me. He wants it 'gone' before this weekend, but the NCT is booked for later in the month...? hmm

No affiliation to seller but I read this as a 93 car with 98 body panels..
Is it not the chassis that determines the year and reg??

Has 93 Ire plates so VRT is paid, guessing guy had a 93 (Rev3?) car with panel rust and replaced it with 98 rev5 body parts..

Happens allot in Landrover world, take an old vintage defender strip it down and rebuild it with modern parts for a new upto year look. The chassis doesn't change so the reg and €50 tax matches the original year for what looks like a 201* jeep..

Talking of re-shelling, this one scratches the head..

I'm agreeing with eringobragh on this one.

If skybound is correct and the chassis determines the year and reg, the MR2 has a Monocoque chassis. The seller would not have been able to transfer all that many '98 bolt on panels to a '93 MR2. So "reshelling" seems to be a load of nonsense.

The Landrover probably has a ladder chassis which would make it a lot easier to upgrade to newer parts.

Nah, that's deffo not a 1993 car. I saw that a few days ago on done deal and I was trying to see if there was a mistake in the add, thinking that someone put in 1993 instead of 1999 by accident, but then read the full description. That whole car is a 1999 except for the engine, the seats, steering wheel etc are all UK rev5, so I don't know what all the "Full complete Jap interior" waffle is about. If the car was ever in an accident ... you'd the f$$ked, That's if it is not taken off ya at the NCT test center!!

correct the chassis determines the year and reg, reshelling can be done for the landrovers and even the range rovers, but not for our little MR2's

Not a hope that car could ever be legally insured/taxed/driven the way it is. I'd say you're right Ering, English reg and wants to avoid the VRT.
Does that even look like a rev2 engine!?

93d44055 I hope nobody gets caught out buying it.

The Reg number online shows it to be a 93 MR2 Blue.. having the reg means VRT already paid.

If its not a re-shell, being a 93 car engine and chassis with 98 panels it might then be a clone..

93 reg put on a matching 98 car.. Whoops

The engine in that pic has an EGR if I'm not mistaken - which is not present in JDM engines (early ones anyway) ...so I'd call BS on his engine swap as well.
