Mikes testimonial 

Little history first..
I've had my MR2 (Rev 2, Mk2, 3vz-fe track day car) for about 5 years now and have used "other well known companies" to get work carried out. I turned to Woodsport as I wasnt 100% satisfied with previous work carried out and through these forums Paul (and company) appeared to be honest and very knowledgable plus priced at a fair price.

I've been dealing with Woodsport / Paul over the course of the past 2 years as we've tried to find a 2gr-fe in the uk at a sensible price (highest quote was £8000.00 + VAT if anyone is interested..) Didnt have much success at finding one at a sensible price and so the plan to 2gr-fe it was abandoned and I comissioned Woodsport to complete the following works for my track car.

Install LSD
Y-pipe mod
Port n Polish of the 3vz-fe
Lightened Fidanza flywheel.
RPS Clutch (its a track day car - old one was knackered)

In ALL of my dealings with Woodsport over the past 2 years I can honestly say I have had nothing but good advice and quick replies to my emails / phone calls. It wasnt unusual for me to email Paul and have a reply back the same day.
I sent my car up to Paul about a month ago via a car transportation company and then drove the 604 mile round trip with a friend yesterday to collect her.
I can honestly say that the work has been carried out to an exceptional standard. Woodsport going so far as rectify a few things which also needed doing, but at no additonal cost. Outstanding service!
Its pretty obvious that Woodsport are very busy and yet I didnt feel as though it was a case of "hi,.. here is your car.. thanks bye!".
Paul took the time to give us a tour, we got a ride in the Rav6 (hilariously good fun :D) and saw/heard the Mk1 V8. Video doesnt do the Mk1 justice.. it has to be heard to be appreciated.

We got to look at other cars Woodsport were working on and the attention to detail was superb.
I guess it should come as no surprise that Woodsport get a full 10/10 from me.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH Woodsport / Paul!! Very rare for me to find a company that I can unreservedly recommend.

Testimonials

Hi all, I picked up my car a couple of weeks ago, and have been too busy driving it, to post anything! Everyone was right, the 320 mile drive back home, was great, the engine was far quieter than the original, and I dont think i needed to change gear much over the whole journey. The car managed the whole trip on one tank of petrol, but with Pauls advice I was taking it easy, and making stops to make sure all was well. I had the fifth gear conversion as well, which is highly recommended, as at 70 miles an hour, the engine is doing a leisurely 2500 RPM.
I cannot praise Paul and Anth enough, the attention to detail is astounding. I cannot recommend them enough, for their conversions, and it is the best money I have ever spent. I have always liked fast cars, but this is in a different league, the torque is incredible. I dont think I have enjoyed driving any of my previous cars so much. The sound of the exhaust is very quiet, until you put your foot down, then it howls, with that distinct v6 note. I hope to bring it to some shows, as I dont need much excuse to drive it. I have great admiration for all of you who carry out this conversion themselves, as it does not look easy. The last time I carried out my own conversion was 20 odd years ago, and that was a Ford Cortina 1500GT engine into a Ford Anglia 105E . Someone told me it was a straight swop, but one was crossflow and one was pre-crossflow, and that was just one problem. I am glad that I put my MR2 into the hands of experts, as it would have been well beyond my abilities. Hopefully I can join the "oldest boy racers in town" club now!?
