Mr2 Turbo Rev 2 Vs Rev 3

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Ive set my heart on buying an MR2 Turbo, ive seen a nice looking Rev 2 which im going to see soon.

Im just a little worried about whether there is a big performance difference between a Rev 2 & 3?

Ive seen this video on youtube

which makes it looks like theres a massive difference with the extra 20BHP on the Rev 3.

Could anyone shed some light on what performance differences actually are please.

Firstly welcome to TOC,

I can't really say, i've always had rev3's (on my third one), it's not all about the power, it's the delivery, the different turbo, better engine management, etc etc etc, they are just stronger (improved metal head gasket Vs rev1/2 paper gasket).

It's also whether you prefer the square or round rear lights, the single or 3 piece spoiler, there is a lot to consider, obviously most stuff can be changed and it depends on your intentions with the car.

There is always going to be 2 sides to this lol, i personally would go for rev3+ everytime, they just seem a lot more reliable to me and i prefer the styling, plus it's a lot easier/safer to get a bit more bhp out of them.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
