    Hello all! Currently attempting my first rebuild after weeks of intense googling and BGB referencing and I hoped to gain some input on my future plans for the 2. Forgive me if some of these questions sound embarrassingly novice. There's so much content online but a lot of it is very old or...
  2. Common Engine Swaps and Related Discussions
    Hey all, Finally getting around to rebuilding my gen 2 3SGTE. Decided to postpone Gen 3/4/5 or 2GR swapping due to owning many parts already and in practical terms, I just want this car back on the road and hopefully, soon. This is a bit of deja-vu as I asked for advice once before but...

    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...
  6. MKII MR2 Parts Wanted To Buy Or Trade
    I recently did a Gen 4 swap and I really like the CT15 spool and I plan on keeping it. The only issue is that mine needs to be rebuilt. I don't have the money to have an ATS or TCS rebuild/upgrade done. Does anyone know where I can purchase a rebuild kit for the CT15?

    Hey there, So I recently purchased an 88 SC model as a project car! It was kept in really good conditions so at the moment I'm just doing minor fixes. I'll be posting regular updates as I go along with it, so if anyone of you have feedback or advice please share, since it is my first MR2!

    Hey guys, I bought myself a 1986 AW11 MR2 lst summer with my final goal being to have it as my first car once i get my drivers license. It has 360000kms on the stock 4age, only 3/4 pistons that work (due to what i suspect are busted piston rings), a couple of rust spots and other small...

    Hello everyone, i own a bigport 4age that needs the valves to be readjusted,, today i measured the valve clearances and all were pretty much way off the mark.

    What's up guys and gals? My name is Thor, I just bought this aw11 as a project to restore. I'm not really familiar or comfortable yet with the 4age and the aw11 I bought was in the middle of a rebuild when I picked it up. So there's my problem in a nutshell I know it needs the timing and valves...
  11. 3SGTE Turbo
    My Ct20b decided to start sending oil smoke out of my exhaust today. Does anybody have links to any good rebuild kits? I've rebuilt two ct26's but it never seems to last very long and I'm tired of pulling the turbo out once a year.
