  1. MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    The clutch on my '95 N/A slips so I've been looking for a replacement, and with it, a lightweight flywheel, as of now I'm thinking of the exedy OE replacement clutch kit and Fidanza lightweight flywheel. I wouldn't be pushing more than 150 hp through this clutch as I'd be getting a new one with...

    Hello all, in the process of swapping a new tranny in my sw21 (5sfe mr2) and am curious why I've been finding that this swap won't work. The bellhousing of a c64 looks to be very close in bolt positioning to the s54. Does anybody know specifically what makes this swap impossible? I've looked and...

    Hey guys I just got my gen 2 3sge swap running and went to go drive it and won’t go into gear. So I pull the engine back out and split the tranny from the engine and saw no obvious issues. I think I’m using the wrong flywheel or possibly clutch kit. What’s on the engine now is a 3sge flywheel...

    I am reaching out to the Tri-State local MR2 crowd to see if anyone is interested in a completely disassembled 5sfe? It was the original engine to my 91 that had a bad bearing. I pulled the engine and swapped in a lower mileage 5sfe and have been driving it ever since. It had roughly 105k...

    A couple months I find a great deal on a pretty solid 2! (back story) I've owned 2 other MK2's since 2004. The first was a project that was an NA but already the a 3sgte motor swapped in but wasn't complete, had that for 4 years (took 2 years to get running solid). The second mk2 I bought almost...

    Hi guys. My new to me 93 NA with 5sfe has been having a starting issue since I bought it. It has a really hard time starting when the engine is warm. It will sometimes have to crank for 15 to 20 seconds before it finally turns over. After it starts it runs perfect. This usually only happen...

    Hey all. I just recently returned from a deployment, and got back in to my car. My wife said that she recently noticed that the car was making a ticking, so I hopped in to see what the problem was. The symptoms are as follows: the noise is noticeable only when under partial throttle, probably...

    Hi guys, My mr2 is automatic with a NA 5sfe. I am in the need of a new radiator. Someone locally has one for sale but the mr2 it is out of is a 5spd NA with a 5sfe. Would I be able to use that radiator on my mr2 or do I need to find a radiator from a automatic NA 5sfe mr2 like mine! Thanks!
