I have removed the inlet manifold and basically all the piddly the stuff that needs to stay in or I don't need. I did this in 1/2 an hour, and I'm not sure if I'll even have to get under the car to do the gearbox, but probably will. I can see the mounts from above, it should be not as hard as I thought.
I then remembered I was going to try the ECU on this car to see if it's faulty!!
I'll clean the bay up and give it a quick spray and check all the wiring is okay before I put the new motor in.
