  1. 3SGTE Turbo
    Been scratching my head about coolant being pushed out of my filler neck cap almost intermittently for the longest time. Finally decided to observe the coolant with the car running and see it foaming and bubbling like crazy (video of it in the imgur link that I've provided, no sound but when you...

    Hi all, this might be a fairly niche idea, but I’d be interested to know if this would be useful to any of you. I have a pretty much stock rev 1 turbo and intend on keeping it that way with only subtle, revertible mods. As we all know the boost gauge in the cluster is hopeless however I don’t...

    I'm starting a turbo build on my 85 MR2 this spring, nothing crazy fancy but does anyone have any experience boosting the motor? what odd problems did you encounter and how much boost did it take before failing? I'm going with a 42mm CX racing turbo and at most I will be pushing 13 psi of boost.
  4. 3SGTE Turbo
    Just installed an AEM tru boost ebc onto my 1993 sw20. Having a bit of an issue now... The controller regulates boost with a solenoid that runs on a duty cycle system. Minimum duty cycle is 10%. Even on the lowest setting of duty cycle of 10% (thus should give me the lowest boost setting...

  7. MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Ok so before everyone tells me to put in an aftermarket gauge let me tell you that's not what I want. I have swapped in a 1mz V6 with a TRD S/C and I want to keep the rest of the car as stock as possible. If anyone got into my car that didn't know a lot about an MR2 they would think it was a...
  8. MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Hi I've recently bought a rev 2 turbo and the boost gauge doesn't work. The guy I bought it off suspects it's the pressure sensor. Anyone else know what else it could be? Cheers 99ron

  10. Supercharger / Turbo FAQ
    My '88 SC has had a NST pulley for a few years. It was installed when I had the car put together for me by a friend who has much more expertise with this car. I have had no boost gauge and no ABV mod. Just now did the ABV mod. At present I have no way of measuring boost, other than subjective...
  11. 3SGTE Turbo
    Car builds no boost or even if it does it's extremely low, 1-2psi, in higher gears. Motor was running fine a few weeks ago before I had to reseal the oil pan. I also got a longer coil wire so I could hide the coil/igniter in the trunk but I don't think that's it. I've read a ton of threads about...

  13. 3SGTE Turbo
    I just finished my car, finally, 93 NA to 93 JDM Gen2. Drove it for the first time the other night and ever since I am getting a CEL light @ 4k, doesn't matter the gear. It will come on/off and after the 2-3 time it will stay on but it'll go away after turning the car off. Got these codes: 12 -...
