WTB: Any 2GRFE SW20 Conversion Parts

Howdy friends, 
 
I've picked up an Aurion to donate a 2GR to my SW20, now I am looking at buying all the required conversion parts from Frankenstein and Wilhelm over in the US. I'm guessing it's a long shot but before I get screwed on conversion rate, shipping and customs fees I was wondering if there is anyone in AUS with any of the parts required who's willing to sell them?
 
I'm in Newcastle but can arrange pickup from anywhere within a few hours drive otherwise I will of course cover the cost of postage.
 
I'm chasing:
Frankenstein engine mount
Frankenstein headers
Frankenstein Pedal adapter
Frankenstein MAF pipe
Wilhelm Y Pipe
Wilhelm Water kneck
Wilhelm oil pan baffle
Wilhelm Intake Elbow
Wilhelm Fuel filter with pressure regulator
 
I'm also on the lookout for a 1MZ flywheel!
 
Thanks for looking!

    I have a few parts but not selling although I would like to give you some advice. The complete exhaust system from USA will cost $3500 landed. Perhaps even more. For the same money someone in Au can fabricate an exhaust system. I would be completely ok with making mine available for a template to follow to save a few $$$. 
    There is a guy in Victoria who makes the mount. Not sure if he has any available. His name is Charlie. Just need to look him up. 
    I made my own baffled sump 4 years ago which was almost the same as the Wilhelm one. You could do the same with a little bit effort. 
    There is a person in Melbourne who claims to know what he is doing with rewire. Do not use him. He is clueless. Talk with Eric Manderson in Qld as he has someone who can help with wiring. 
    Motorsport connections has all the fittings you will need to do fuel systems. 
    There are a few mods required to the gearbox to fit the 2GR. Not much just some work with the rotary file, a helicoil for the top gearbox mounting bolt. 
     
    If you need more help just let us know to see if someone can help.
     
    Cheers

    Awesome, thanks for the advice Steve! Much appreciated!
    Thanks for the exhaust template offer too, I like this idea however when I had a chat to my fabricator he wasn't comfortable with the idea of copying someone else's work, he has a valid point and getting him to make a set from scratch will end up costing me similar money so I think I will just go with the proven headers from Frankenstein! Marc has done so much for the MR2 2GR community he definitely deserves to be rewarded!
    I sent a message to Eric the other day and he pointed me in the direction of SQ Engineering for the engine mount, they are going to make up some mounts in the next few months.
    I'm going to tackle the wiring myself, if it starts to look like too much I will see if Eric's contact is available.
    Thanks again!

    Hey! I'm actually in the parts gathering stage for a 2GR conversion also. Talking to Marc and Alex. Maybe they can send the stuff we need together (although I'm in Perth) and shipping will be cheaper? If nothing else we can kinda help each other when we get stuck with stuff! Good luck with your swap.

    I've been following Marc's 2GR series, its awesome he's putting those videos out!
     
    Joint shipping might be a good money saver MJStinkfist! When are you thinking about placing your order?
     
    Cheers!

    I can vouch for the SQ engineering mounts, I got the first set when Charlie reached out to me about them, and unlike Goukys one allows fitting a supercharger

    I need a few bits too if anyone wants to combine shipping. These are the parts I'm looking at purchasing: (all prices in $USD) minus shipping.

    1. Frankenstein 2GR-FE MAP Pipe $175
    2. Wilhelm Intake Elbow $45
    3. Wilhelm complete Fuel system with pressure regulator $240. Or purchase the fuel kit MR2 - 2GR from RAT2 Motorsports $169
