  1. Do you carry a spare tire?

    MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    Not long after I bought my car I got a flat tyre. Went to change it but the spare was a 5x100 stud pattern so didn't fit. Left me stranded. Ever since then I have carried one. I think I only used it once in 11 years but I changed it out at home, not on the road. I like to carry one, brings the...
  2. Boost controller doesn't seem to work?

    3SGTE Turbo
    Like @Rocket3004 say, if you want 12PSI revert everything back to the OEM boost control system. The VSV for this is under the intake manifold. You also need all the vacuum hoses to suit. Plenty of photos online showing this. Or look at the 'How to install a boost controller' and reverse engineer...
  3. Steering issues

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    So the OEM struts use short swaybar links so the swaybar is way out of it's normal horizontal range?
  4. Power Steering Disable at speed?

    V6 MR2 Forum
    PSCT (Power Steering Cut) doesn't exist on other ECUs but MR2. What it does is sends a signal to the PS ECU to tell it to shut off when the engine isn't running after short time, sort of like a standard hydraulic system. I'm not too sure how this all works with engine swaps where the ECU...
  5. Alternator Cost

    New Member Introductions
    You need to be careful what unit you get. There are 2 sizes and 2 bracket sizes. What is interesting is people say that powersteering uses the big alternator but my car has powersteering and uses the small unit. And the small bracket from OEM. Autos with PS seem to use the bigger unit and...
  6. 90 sw20 Body molding needed

    Restoration Forum
    OEM or used would be your only choice for this part at the base of the window. I wouldn't think anyone would be crazy enough to remake these. I wrapped mine with a gloss black vinyl, looks OK but then I'm not repainting my whole car.
  7. Checking codes using multimeter and high idle.

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Have we looked at the ECU capacitors?
  8. Power Steering setup help

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Plenty of people use these pumps on stock cars here in NZ. Maybe see if you can talk to someone about how they set it up. Although it can't be too hard with the information provided.
  9. SW21 manual tranny

    General MK2 FAQ (Newbie Center)
    I can't really be sure if it does but making sure all your shift linkage bushes are not worn goes a long way to fixing an apparent synchro problem. My gearbox was hard to change gears sometimes but putting in new oil and changing out all the bushes made it far better. Not perfect but you can...
  10. Power Steering setup help

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Might also pay to find a copy of the 1993 USDM SW20 wiring diagram too. The 1991 version is possibly more correct but the 1993 is in colour making it a bit easier to work with.
  11. Electrical

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Maybe bad earths on the wiring, corrosion in the bulb holder or bad bulbs. I do know that if the 'flashers' or warning/hazard light button is unplugged the whole system stops working. So it's not this button causing your issue.
  12. Un-even wheel fitment

    Normally Aspirated
    Do the wheels have specs on them? Diameter, width, offset. 8cm is 80mm or just over 3 inches. Are you sure cm is the correct measurement term and not mm? Because that is a huge difference.
  13. SW21 manual tranny

    General MK2 FAQ (Newbie Center)
    ATF is a common fluid put in manual transmissions. However I use Castrol VMX 80W in my S54.
  14. GEN4 3SGTE swap OBD1 port

    Common Engine Swaps and Related Discussions
    Good research there. It does help a lot as I have not read any of these testing situations in the BGB due to not having issues with the car. Most of my learning is from when my car has broken.... The GEN4 ECU doesn't appear to contain anything but TC. So the other pins become useless. OK TS...
  15. RIMS for my 92 Turbo

    Budget? Size? Preference on looks? Or are you after a 6" or 7" OEM 15" wheel to replace a damaged one?
  16. Steering issues

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Swaybar links? OR the mount to the strut for the sway bar. Long shot but you never know.
  17. GEN4 3SGTE air box air temperature sensor

    Common Engine Swaps and Related Discussions
    Just about finished wiring up a JDM GEN3 3SGE with a GEN4 3SGTE. The GEN3 3SGE and GEN4 3SGTE have a temp sensor in the airbox. The GEN4 also has one in the intake manifold. What is the affect of not using the airbox sensor? I see most if not all GEN4 swaps don't have the sensor OR a place for...
  18. Shifter not returning to center when in neutral

    General MK2 FAQ (Newbie Center)
    The spring that returns the lever to the mid position will either be worn or need reshaped to be tighter. Mine does this a little bit but I have never got around to doing this yet.
  19. Advice Before Coil Over Install?

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    I replied in the other place you asked this question. Online BGB for the MR2 will have it. Top bolts, not too tight as they don't do much, just hold the strut from falling out. Bottom bolts, I do them up tight but I'm sure there is a medium torque setting for these. End links, will depend on...
  20. Torque spec sheet Please Help!

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    The BGB contains all the torque specs in the relevant parts of the manual. YOu will find mot in one part but not all. Search 'SW20 MR2 BGB' and the first link has an online document split into parts to easily find what you need.
