    Hey guys, this is my first post although I’ve been digging in this forum heavily in the past year. Having a strange specific misfire issue that I haven’t found in a thread. So... The other day I went to take my 85’ MR2 out and out of nowhere, I could not get passed 6k rpm in 2nd, 5k rpm in 3rd...

    Ok so just did a compression test on my 86 mr2 and all 4 cylinders are low on compression, while 3 of the cylinders are above the minimum 128psi one cylinder is below and they aren't with 14psi of eachother as the Haynes manual recommends. Adding oil while doing the compression test adds some...

    I am wrapping up a super budget build on a 7 rib 4age. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to use the automatic trans cooler as a w2a intercooler. If you run air through the coolant side and water through the oil side, then use the a/c condenser as a HE. I'm not around the car and had an...

    I have a bad clunking noise on the rear when I accelerate and gets worse when I turn right. It doesn't clunk when just pushing the car in neutral and have no idea what is causing the problem. Help would be much appreciated 1989 aw11 supercharged

    I've recently bought the car and put a new clutch into it, Everything with the clutch is perfect and have also replaced the track rod end, but when driving I hear a constant knocking/clunking noise when driving and gets worse when I turn and have noticed that there is a slight play in the...
  6. General MK1 - FAQ
    Hey guys, so I own an 86 AW11 A NA and I wanted to swap the engine for a more powerful 2L turbo. I thought about 3SGTE swapping it like a lot of people do but I'm having trouble finding any and even less with a manual transmission. Budget is tight so for me it was a pretty good option but it's...

    Hi guys! I wanted to install a touchscreen in my AW11 1986. But the hole is too small for it and I don’t want to sacrifice my AC since it gets really hot in there. Does any of you have or could make a 3D model of the center stack so I can modify later on to accompany a touchscreen radio? Would...

    So I noticed two hooks held in by a phillips head skrew and wondered what it could be used for. After some research I found out it was originally a coathanger which kind of disapointed me. I was wondering if that hole could be safe enough to used to mount the top part of a 3 point harness like...
  10. New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone! This is my first post on here so i just wanted to say hi and give a little info on my car. I have a 1986 Aw11 with 121k miles. Though my engine has currently 409 miles because I had to rebuild it. I bought my mr2 in October 2019 for a good deal because it had a blown motor. I got...

    Hey guys! My front lip on my 86' MR2 looks pretty rotten. I was wondering if any of you guys would know a front lip that fits on a 1rst gen MR2 that’s not too crazy expensive. As a teenager I'm pretty tight on budget but I'm still relatively open to the idea of saving up for one. Thanks yall!

    Hey guys! So my antenna on my 86' MR2 broke off today and I was wondering if you guys had any ideas for a replacement one. I don't even mind if it doesn't look original. I just want it to work but I would prever if it wasn't a big long metal stick like the old one but it's not that big of a...

    helping a buddy with his swap, the engine depot didnt include the afm and pigtail is missing as well. Is anyone has one that’d be sweet!
  14. MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    sup bro’s. My buddy has an aw11 and I talked him into doing a silvertop swap. He had his mechanic do the install (put engine in car, basically just the heavy lifting as I have my own projects at my house). Says his mechanic doesn’t know how to do the wiring so it’s coming to me to finish it...
  15. MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    My passenger side pop up headlight won’t pop up or down on my ‘86 MR2. Fuses are intact, all wires are connected and I can hear the relay click when I « turn them on ». Any idea why? Help would be greatly appreciated. On a side note, is it normal that I have a check engine light when the car’s...

    I’m re-assembling my c52 and have a broken snap ring on the 5th gear clutch hub, I am praying to the mr2 gods that someone somehow has a spare junk c52 that could help me out. Picture of the other good snap ring and the hub I’m referring too below
  19. MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    I am currently taking the engine from my recently junked 1996 tercel and heavily modifying it to handle high amounts of boost. I am using engine builds from UK and Austrailia as the basis for my engine construction. I will be keeping the C50 trans but replacing the bellhousing with a C141 in...
  20. General MR2 Discussion
    So I’m stuck and I can’t find any threads I’m probably just not looking hard enough, but I’m wondering if I should just pull my 4age out and build it up better or swap it out for something that will make a lot more power. And I’m not wanting to put a Honda engine in it, I want to keep it Toyota...
