Terry x-over 7 seater let off the chain, stupid power in a fairly mid sized people mover/suv.

Started its life as a na family banger with nearly 300000 on clock, it did it's job fine but it was time for a change. I didn't want her to go so told the mrs "go and get yourself a car... sell mine...? I'm having this!" (she ended up buying another territory ghia)

oh well

Anyway the operation was to begin. I sourced an xr6 turbo whole vehicle from the country, where it was owned by a young bloke for approximately 12 hours who then subsequently put it through a fence, a tree then finally ended up in a paddock.

The xr was actually given to him by his father that morning, who over the years had spent a small fortune, only to look at his car crumpled sitting in a paddock.

With his wife staring he couldn't or wouldn't say too much, but his eyes told you...

So, poor bloke's nightmare turned into my dream (for a change), towed it home on trailer and got started there and then.

For the next month, everyday after work I tinkered, with only a few hiccups along the way. It was quite easy except for exhaust, which carries over the diff just under rear third row seats.

Tune after tune later, and a play with pats she was away. Good fun, and no one expects it to say 'seeya' as it boosts on and away from the p plater with no idea what happened...
