    Cause insurance is mandatory here, and astronomically expensive for anything larger than a 1.2l Micra/Corsa/whatever for people that age.
    Cost me more to insure a 1.3 VW Polo with a clean full licence that it was to insure my modified Skyline here with a dirty restricted licence.

    Whilst I agree with compulsory insurance, its done wrong in the UK.

    Ended up getting something a bit older than I thought I would. 1993 Corolla GT.

    Good choice, I like the GT Corolla sedan range (I've had an AE92 GT Corolla sedan for the last decade or so).

    Black top 20v? Nice one

    It's an AE101 so silvertop. I'm happy with it's performance but I'm no racer. It'd done 155K which seems to be low for this kinda car.

    155k is very low, and whilst the silvertop is down on power compared to the blacktop, they're still a good engine (and are tough as old boots).

    Having seen some of the suggestions in the earlier pages of this thread, I'm glad this is the result.

    You've done well

    Get that engine ECU out and check for leaking capacitors ASAP!

    Are there caps in these ECU'S? Is there a nice aftermarket one I can just pop in there?

    Nope, there's nothing easy about Toyota ECU's.

    That's why despite racing mine for 10+ years, I'm running a stock ECU.

    Is there a guide on ECU recapping or should I not worry about it

    Just do what I said. Pull it out, pull it apart, check it, go from there.

    Replacing the capacitors is fairly easy, cleaning up and repairing isn't.

    Might take it to an auto-electrician to look at.

    Just open it and see if any of the big capacitors are flat or rounded (like a dome) at the top or leaking anything out the bottom. It's probably fine, and if not it's not a big deal to replace them yourself if it's anything like the ones that go in tv/monitor power circuits. Will be heaps of videos on how to remove and replace caps, and even specific ones for ecus based on a quick google search. I wouldn't bother spending money to have it checked (imo).
