    mr2 turbo
  1. i would change the orange lights sort the number plate out mount it how stu had it his it looked good also if you can sort a respray would look good as your car looks a bit pink in the picture im not sure about the gold wheels but it would probably look nice when done i wouldn't personally buy rev 6 lights spend the money on some thing better but if you sort these few little bits im sure the car will look alot better than it already does
  2. Turbo Xs its alot better than my Blitz one i had and alot cheaper to and it don't make the car stall and its really loud

    Compression

    well i spoke to a friend of the family who rebuilds engines and tune cars up and he is going to have a look and do the job for me but i will have to wait a month or just over but i only bought the car to sell it on so selling it near the summer should fetch me a few more £££

    Compression

    well they said it could just be a valve or something but it could be more when the head is off and they finally have a look so not to sure really

    Compression

    hi i finally found out today that my rev3 turbo engine hasn't got any compression on cylinders 3 & 4 the company have said it will be £500 - £600 to take the head off and have a look to see why there is no compression just wondering what every one thinks i should do as im not a mechanic and need the car fixed to sell it on does that sound about the right price
  8. the cable runs into the top of the gearbox just follow it along if you can
  9. hi i have a rev3 turbo which for some reason is only firing on two cylinders and i had a mechanic look at it he said to change the leads it might sort it if not he will have a proper look just wondering where is the cheapest place to get the leads i would prefer standard ones or if anyone is selling a good second hand set let me know do you guys think that it could be leads or something else <_<
