Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Newbie Saying Hi


Recommended Posts

Hi guys and gals, been lurking around for a while but only had my mr2 for about 3 weeks. Got a slight oil leak at the mo (getting fixed tomoz) so not really had chance to push it much, still, what a car, WHAT A F***KING CAR, i'm in love :)

Had 1 or 2 frights coming out of the corners and its still on low boost :eek:

Broke down on me once already, had to call AA :( though i'm hoping that problem is fixed now after replacing ignition components. Not really planning much in the style department (except lightweight alloys and maybe some carbon fibre goodies) in fact, if it doesnt make my car either go faster/handle better or stop better it probably isnt right for my car

Usually hang around on the imoc if anyone recognises the name, anyways, heres the spec and some pics -

1994 Rev3 GT T-bar Turbo

78k, 8k since engine rebuild by GDA in Kent

1 previous UK owner since import by Newera in '01

Comes with standard double din stereo + cd changer to be replaced when i have relocated the ebc

Mongoose exhaust

Hayward and scott de cat pipe

Apexi power intake

Owens hybrid turbo

JE forged pistons

Jun rods

Jun flywheel

RPS clutch

HKS headgasket

HKS fcd

ARP main bolts, rod bolts, head studs/bolts

have a rolling road printout showing 305bhp (flywheel) on owens dyno but that was 19psi with spearco intercooler, now 17psi on standard intercooler so should be about 270-280 i reckon

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
