    Abs

    unless its a fake gts? all gts's come with steerable fogs, half leather interieor aswell etc although abs is not always a good thing...alot of people think it gives u a shorter braking distance when infact all abs deos is enable you to steer while braking
  3. Having owned a rev 3 tubby for just short of 2 years and driven both an Auto and Manual TT soop I cna honestly say that the MR2 is more 'fun' to drive. The soop is great for cruising and mid to top end speeds but you dont get the rush or the kick that a tubby gives you in the back of your neck as you come on boost. At brunters my mate who came along with me was lucky enough to jump into the Skunk supra which was pushing 400bhp+ according to the owner. One he had come back off the track he said to me that it didnt 'feel' much quicker than my MR2 but when he looked down he was hitting 120mph round a bend where i could only hit 95. They are totally different cars and personally I think the mk4 soop is a barge! It felt very heavy aroud corners when i drove it and the turbo were very very smooth and progressive which is totally opposite to the tubby. Im sure i aint helped you one bit and all these opinions are solely mine from what i have encountered and not just speculated. and what about the general running costs? i dont struggle to run a tubby...but then im not sure how much an impact 19mpg will effect me lol...i do drive alot and it will be my only car
  4. what about the mk4's thats the ones im looking at buying? how do they drive compared to the mr2?
  5. just got an insurance quote for £615 for a supra TT import with bell insurance how much more will running costs be over my tubby? and mpg? cheers jon

    Turbo Conversion

    speak to rouge systems mate, firstly u have to deal with the the compression ratio, as the na has a higher compression compared to turbo engines, you will need to !Removed! the timing on your na too and also something to do with needing a air flow meter or something, be alot cheeper and easier to get hold off an engine, im converting my car after xmas, my mate said why dont u sell it and buy a tubby...no coss the hassle of finding a good turbo, selling mine or gettin a crap price by tradding it in. and modifications ive done to it etc etc etc
