  4. E-Bay MR2 Listings - Cars & Parts
    I’m selling my MR2 on eBay. Sad to see it go but don’t have space after a cross country move. Not listed anywhere else, no reserve, no buy it now. I know I’m more of a lurker, but thank you all for the knowledge over the years! Auction ends 4/23/2021...
  5. MKI Cooling & Charging
    So, my temp gauge spike is back and it's likely that water pump was on its last leg last few times I started my '88 up and now decided to fully go. It gets proper hot around the engine, the return bleeder at the radiator does get fluid into it, but all of the cooling hoses feel like there's...

    Howdy all! So recently I was doing some casual work on my 2. I got the car about 5 months ago and have been doing regular maintenance over thy period. Yesterday, I decided to clean out the throttle body, as I was unsure how long it had been untouched. Answer: probably never. That thing was...

    I'm prepping to change the stock exhaust to custom aluminum this spring, and I noticed there are heat shields over the headers. Is it healthier for the car to keep it on or is it just exta weight?

    I'm looking to buy an MK1 MR2 with a 3SGTE engine swapped in. Here's what I'm looking for: Gauges working, electronics working, interior intact.

    Hey guys, I pulled my 3 rib 4age to replace the seals and clean it up. While I had it out I came across a 7 rib with better compression and decided to use it. I now have the 7 rib resealed and in the car and everything connected as it should be. I have gone through the BGB to try and trouble...

    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'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...
  19. 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...
