well where do i begin lol


im 19 and wanting to buy my 1st mr2
i have just sold my 182 bhp escort rs turbo (being a student and running costs 2 much)

my questions are:

what are the basic power outputs of the mr 2 engines and how many variants are there (was going to look for a 3sge but after looking on here i am confused to which cars they came fitted on( know lots on fords but have a very limited knowledge on toyotas :rolleyes: ).
im form the u.k. so if this makes any diffrence

how many groups higher insurance wise is the tbar compared to the hard top

also how much should i be looking at for a nice clean example and what age (i will have upto 3k to spend)

sorry if my questions seem stupid and thanks for taking the time 2 read it :)

if you are in the uk the n/a engine is a 3sge, if you have a us bound mr2 it would be a 5sfe, the other engine that came to you was the 3sgte turbo mr2, so you can get the 3sge n/a or the 3sgte turbo, for your price and you being in college i would get the n/a for now, it would be kinda hard to get a nice turbo for the money, the 3sge is a decent engine that can be moded a bit..... t-bar did not change my insurance at all :)

There were 3S-FE cars in UK too, I think a search here on 3S-FE should turn up some info, those are the ones to avoid.
