Nice Deuce man! MR2's were my first love lol

SW20 Hardtop's rule!

Does your fog lights turn left and right with your steering? Like you turn your foggies on and when you turn left the foggies beams will be facing left?

Mine didnt work on my MR2.
And what I like about the SW20's is that the steering column is fully adjustable, tilt and you can bring in the s/wheel closer to you.

Hey ON2U....you used to own the black Supra? I remember when Paul was painting my car (mr2) at Prestige Body shop your Supra was in there too fixing up a little prang or something.

Nice ride :D It's harder and harder to find decent condition SW20's nowadays (a GTS too!) and yours is looking fantastic.

Edit: Just found this...if you ever want to turn your SW20 into a Ferrari :mrgreen: Pretty good quality conversion if you ask me!

a quick question while this thread is off topic. What happened to the Lexus and MkIV?? Or and the AW11

Gorilla
04-06-07, 09:00 PM
I sold the Lexus regrettably (i always wanted a supra), I sold the Supra because the rear was in an accident in japan, the repair was fine, but it was always in my mind. The aw11 caught fire :(

Dang, nice purchases!

I had John holding those swaybars for me but a PFC came up so money went to that hehe; let me know how they feel when fitted, they're the same diameter as the TRD ones as well.
What other mods are going in with the turbo kit and injectors? Did you pick up those cams/camgears you mentioned earlier in the thread?

Gorilla
02-07-07, 02:24 PM
Thanks!

Yeah, ill let you know, the current sway bars are pencil thin, the ones on my corona are thicker!! Im sure this will be a great improvment.

Nope, didnt get the cams, guy sold em, I ran outta Money hehhe.

Shane DONT BUY A GEARBOX RIGHT AWAY.

Check the small pivot pin where the clutch slave cylinder is. Mine had failed at WSID causing my pedal to hit the floor and not get into any gears.

The problem with SW20's (early models) like ours is the pin is too short and any violet or hard usages eg - track. Will cause it to slip out of position

http://www.mr2-tech.com/bgb/mechanical/volume2/manual_transaxle/Manual_0721_0001.jpg

I towed mine to St Marys brake/Clutch.. I thought I broke the gearbox + clutch but it was only a $30 pin. get this checked out first

Come on man.. I was expecting 11's with that monster turb of yours my black asian brooda haha

Gorilla
20-12-07, 09:25 AM
Awesome Mike! Hope your right. I wont be buying a box anyway, I would build this one, lsd box are hard to find.

Hmm try and drive it like a dog box going into 2nd.
Gas off 1st gear, Clutch, Nuetral, Clutch 2nd in a positive motion

also rev match from 3rd to 2nd when gearing

I do this when the car is cold as my gearbox is fairly tight till operating speeds

Hey Quest congrats on blowing the lump lol u have a heavy foot jkz...hope u get it sorted...as much as ppl dont realise a MR2 can get 13's it is one of the most underrated Jap cars imo. Up the power to 400bhp and ur looking to play with the big boys on the strip...at 10 of the best in UK some MR2s got 10 seconds with 500bhp which is fab.

Keep up the good work...I should have my airwalker sideskirts on coming Jan and will be posting pictures.

Thanks ntensity.

I never understand why its not as popular in Aus, I know you guys in the UK love them and also the usa.

First time I really launched it, and man, it felt like I was driving an EVO or GTR, with that crazy launch.

Stock, It ran a 14 flat, bear in mine its the older gen2.

14 was when it was stock and that was the previous owner, not bad for a 1992 car dont you think?

Anyways, for some reason, the gearbox is working again, so strange. Im thinking maybe the engine mounts need replacing. thinking the hard launch jolted teh motor/box tht much that it might have miss aligned the selectors. As when i jacked teh car up to change wheels, and put it back down, after that is when it started to work again.

So...too bad I had already put a deposit on ST205 GT4 gearsets. I suppose Its still a good investment as 3rd gear synchro is dodgy above 5krpm, and the GT4 box has double sunchros and a slightly lower ratio.

So, a couple more things going in before i get married, and its all over.

HKS 264 Ex/In Cams with some Cam gears

This 3 60mm gauge holder, no idea on teh brand but its for sw20 bought off yahoo japan, as im sick of having no stereo

I decided to sell my Work wheels in favour to pay for teh gearbox, so the GTR wheels will stay on for now.

Phoenix Power Exhaust (cant wait for this), my current exhaust is very loud, this is much quiter and plus its bling! Phoenix Power is one of teh biggest SW20 workshops in japan (Renowned for slapping T88's on SW20's!!!)\

ATS Racing Phenolic Intake Spacer (Removes stock TVIS plates and butterfly. They increase performance by reducing a restriction in the intake tract and by reducing the temperature of the intake air)

All this stuff is still on its way from Japan/USA so these pics are not mine, once they are all here I will update!

NICE! How did you go around choosing your cam shafts? And where did you buy yours from?

Gorilla
09-01-08, 12:38 AM
believe it or not, Ebay. It was $10 cheaper than Nengun, but a friend who ordered hs from Nengun took 3 months! This Ebay seller from teh US gurantees it in 4 days lol.

264 is probably the limit for drop ins, as any bigger you must change valve springs.

Also this will give me better low and mid range responce as the T67 is quite laggy

Nice work on the car, the old getting married scenario eh, I know it well...

be like my brother and just have patience, then slowly wear her down, that's how get got his MR2 once they were settled, then the mods were B'day, Xmas etc gifts + this is broken/worn so I need <insert brand name here> suspension etc...hehe

Gimic i agree about the wheels, hence my 7 month search! Thanks!

kayot1k, umm initially yes, but then went to powertune in the end. Nothing against JEM, he is good, but the car was in teh shop next door, couldnt be bothered towing car to JEM.
