  2. 3SGE Flywheel Bolts

    Normally Aspirated
    I'm doing my clutch and flywheel soon on my gen 3 3sge MR2. I want to replace the flywheel bolts at the same time. I found a set of ARP bolts but they are only for the 3sgte (Part number: 203-2801) Would these fit the 3sge bolt holes? I'm not sure if the 3sgte and 3sge share the same flywheel...
  3. Gen 2 3sge swap

    Common Engine Swaps and Related Discussions
    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.

  6. Clutch Master Cylinder Line

    MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    Hey everyone, so my 1985 MR2 recently had a problem where the clutch master cylinder was leaking.

    MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    Hey guys, I had some trouble a week or so ago with my '85. I stepped on the clutch pedal and that puppy went straight to the floor. I saw that there was leaked brake fluid in the frunk (corroding some paint :frown2:) so I replaced the master cylinder. I bled the system. It was working fine but...
