    Ooo I'll have to keep an eye on your progress then Questlove haha

    As for the snorkel, I haven't seen any proof that it helps with airflow, the 2's are designed to get cold air from the side vents and under the car, and expel hot air out of the engine lid vents.

    I was going to post some pics of some SW20's on the production line in the factory but can't access my ftp at work, will see if I get a chance at home tonight

    I reckon they'd be exhaust fans, like in the ceiling of a bathroom - only they'd spin a shitload faster!

    Damn that's a nice looking 2 in that pic; they're used to suck out hot air, a few places make them, mainly from the states, eg http://www.speed-source.net/
    If you come along to one of the MR2 meets you'll see a couple of these setups.

    cool thanks man. I bought a turbo kit for the aw11 off speed source, lets just say the engineering was rubbish.

    I actually think that some of the snorkels look good. However, wouldn't it get in the way when you try to open the "hood"??

    Is there much difference between the turbo and NA SW's?

    There's probably not a massive difference in stock form, just like the Supra. The SZ Supra did 0-100kmh in 6.6sec, and the RZ in 5.7sec I think. The difference is the fact you can get a shitload more power out of a turboed car than a NA.
