So on the weekend my Olivia and I decided to take both our cars out for a drive and also pulled up to take a few picks of them together before we sell the STi.
I just thought I would post up a few of the photos.

I love the wheels on the Rex. They suit it perfectly

Thanks Glen, Yeah I think the bronze looks a bit more subtle than the factory gold rims that's for sure.

Unfortunately Jay at this point we are just selling it to reduce overheads whilst we are building and just going back to two cars for the time being.
We will look at replacing it in a couple of years once we get back ahead a bit, Olivia is thinking she might look for a Lexus IS300 and then swap in the Supra 6 speed and turbo engine.

Fair enough, you do what you have to do. Probably cheaper to do an IS200 & swap a 1JZ with R154. It's an easier swap & an excellent motor too. Or perhaps can simply get a Mark II or Mark X/Crown.

That is one option but Olivia would rather the 2J and she doesent like the looks of the chaser or crown's.
Seeing as the IS300 already comes with a 2J there is no increase in engine capacity and no dramas with converting to a different engine type when it comes to the engineering side of things, also it is not hard to convert the IS300 to use the V160 gearbox.

So I had a busy couple of days over the weekend, I had been doing some work on the MR2 a week or so ago and when I moved the car I noticed a few drops of coolant on the ground under the car so I went looking to find where it was coming from and tracked it back to coolant leaking from the weep hole on the water pump, great....
So I ordered in a new pump but I ordered the updated water pump from the ST205 part number 16100 79236 which has a different impeller wheel than that of a regular 3SGTE pump that is supposed to reduce pump capitation at higher RPM even though mine does not see a lot of time spent at high RPM I figured if I am replacing it I may as well get the update pump anyway.
 
So what a fun job changing the water pump on a SW20 is.... almost one whole day to get the old pump out then another day to get everything back together, wow I will put that down as an experience but at least I now know what it takes to do it or also what is involved in doing a timing belt whilst in chassis. 
 
here is a couple of images of the impeller differences between the ST205 pump vs the regular 3SGTE pump. The regular 3SGTE pump is on the left and has a pressed metal impeller, The ST205 3SGTE pump is on the right and has a cast impeller.
 
Inside the new pump you can just see the updated impeller.
 
 
And the fun I had

Yeah I tend to always do all my own work unless it involves something I just don't have the equipment to do it, partly because I then know it will be done properly because I know of far to many people who have had problems when relying on other people to work on their cars and also because I cant stand paying someone to do something I can do myself.

Impressive that you tackled the job on your own. Did you change the timing belt while you were @ it or was it already done recently.
