MR2 Spyder 2000 - Manual Conversion

Just done the Manual Conversion from SMT on my MR2 Spyder year 2000.
Job is completed in two days straight. Not a complicate task for a good "car electrical & mechanic".
Successful test run for the last 3 weeks, all good.
Some notes:
  • The manual conversion kits is from Monkey Wrench Racing (MWR) - USA. Around $4,000.00 AUD.
  • Ensure order RHD kits for Australia.
  • This MWR's ECU that come with the kit, the spec is USA. My MR2 is of Japanese spec.
    • This meant that USA has 2 upper stream O2 Sensors and 1 down stream O2 sensor. Japanese spec has no "down stream O2 sensor". Due to this missing down stream O2 sensor, the "engine light" is on with P0141 . MWR is working on it to fix the issue for Jap Spec. If anyone, know how to fix this issue, please let me know.
  • MWR is very helpful answering any questions during the conversion process. Due to time diff between Australia & USA, best send questions in email around 4am Australian time.
To this end, I am very happy for my Manual Conversion with the kits for MWR.
PS - If you want to get rid of SMT then do it now. My SMT is nothing but very "painful" and expensive to maintain.
