    I need some help figuring out what to do with my car. I want to swap it over the winter and have it ready by next summer (not sure how realistic that is) but I honestly don't know where to start. Originally, I thought gen4/5 was the way to go until i started looking for wiring diagrams and...
  2. 1990-1999 MR2 N/A Cars For Sale
    Purchased earlier this year, I thought it'd be a decent project car. I didn't know anything about MR2s and ended up getting jipped. It runs but apparently the head gasket needs to be replaced because it started smoking like crazy so I took it to my mechanic. He said its probably the head gasket...

    Hey Everyone! I hope this is alright. I recently posted this on a older thread from 08. Curious if you guys have found out how to make the most of your 5sfe's. Hope I'm aloud to post, my wife has had a Gen 5 Celica gt for the last six years and we love it. Want to turn it into a reliable daily...

    I need a new fuel pump for my 1993 mr2 with the 5sfe in it what should I get?

    Hi everyone, first-time poster here! Need some opinions. TLDR: Crank, no start. No power to fuel pump. Sometimes no spark either. New Circuit Opening Relay (cor) didn't fix it. Mechanic's technician put in a new COR and said it was fixed and that the one I got new from the dealership was bad...
  6. MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    So little back story, got this car a couple of months ago, has a rebuilt engine with paperwork, and I've been fixing everything else back to operating standards. Went to change the oil, I referenced the owner's manual that thankfully came with the car. It says 4.2 quarts with filter. Now here's...

    Hello, Been having issues with my mr2 making a fast ticking noise (like a fast clicking ballpoint pen) from the engine. Seems to be most audible around 2-3k rpm and accelerating in 2nd gear. No sound when clutch is depressed I believe. At first I thought it was the exhaust manifold+gasket so I...

    Hi, new here. Tried to find the answer but most posts are old and pics end up with a 404 not found error. I recently picked up a clean MR2 nonturbo 5sfe with a rebuilt engine. Apparently, the mechanic that put it in did not want to do it (I assume this is because it was intimidating) therefore...

    Friends! I replaced my battery last October and as soon as I brought her out of storage in March she was completely dead. I threw my jump box on the battery and within 1 minute she turns over. However, if i keep the jump box on the battery for a few minutes while running, the idle starts going...
  10. 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...

  15. Tri-State MOC
    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...

( downpipe, flywheel, southbend clutch kit s54 to 3s, etc...) I plan on doing the harness myself because im a DIY guy &...

    Whats damaged is what you see in the pictures, everything else is in perfect condition. Let me know what you need. It is swapped to turbo however the 5S and tranny are in the garage and can be bought together or parted out as well. Don't be afraid to make me a different offer or ask for other...

    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...
