I just got my MR2 running after several mods. and I am having two strange sounds. a loud whistling sound when boosting above 1 psi, and kind of chattering sound while reving but then goes away after a little while.

Would be nice to let some other MR2 guys hear this, and help me diagnose the problem.

I'm in Beaufort South Carolina. Also anyone know of any MR2 specific performance shops around close.

thanks

Beaufort is all the way at the most southern tip of SC. Pretty much Savannah GA. Thanks for the invite, we'll have to get together sometime. Oh and i did find out the whistling problem, so now i'm working on the chattering, really seems like an exhaust leak but I can't feel any air when feeling around the manifold. it does go away with about 5 min of driving. but we'll see, going to retighten everything tomorrow.

thanks again

1 out of 1 local to you regional members uses the nearest MR2 specific shop to him, which is in Charlotte, and is called "Mitch's." ;)

J/K...you might try to PM Osprey. He's down your way and might have some insight as to a decent garage down there.

Sounds like maybe an exhaust manifold leak, but I can't hear your car...

Just an idea to think about. That's something that will stop after the exhuast really warms up.

I have a completely stock '91 NA in Beaufort and I just use the local Toyota dealer. However, I would not recommend them to work on a modded turbo. Unfortunately I don't know of any good performance shops around here. The collective wisdom of the Carolina MOC might just be your best hope while you are in Beaufort.
