The MR2 is ready for the dyno! Last episode Marty got the new ECU working and with the help of Tuning Fork, managed to get it started and running after upgrading the turbo, installing a custom water to air setup, installing new coils, injectors and fuel system.

  • People always ask how it is I got to know so much about how to work on cars and the engineering that goes into them despite not going to school or getting any formal training. I always tell them it's because of the internet like forums and such which is true but it's more specifically videos like these which are well made and enjoyable to watch as much as they are educational. Thank you guys for making a passion filled hobby of mine so fascinating and accessible

  • I owned a slick top mr2 turbo many years ago. That thing was a nightmare filled with issues and the transmission was garbage. It was a great car when everything was working well but that's wasn't too often. And just working on a mid rear layout killed my back. That being said I love they idea of this platform and they look great especially in black like the car here.

  • How is that MR2 only pushing out 234 HP? My MK1.5 with Gen 2 3S-GTE makes 254 wheel on the ATS dyno (which notoriously reads low) with the same CT27, 16psi, stock Gen 3 cams, stock cam pulleys, upgraded valve springs, stock ECU, ATS side-mount A2A IC, ATS throttle body inlet, stock injectors, squeezed stock fuel pressure regulator, bored out stock fuel rail, Walbro 255, distributor, airflow meter, pump 93 AKI, full 3" catless straight pipe. Oh and all of that stuff aside from the CT27 and fuel pump was out of a used parts bin.

    Dead ReckonDead ReckonPirms 7 Mēnešiem
  • I like how its kept real, well, as best as they can. I'm sure a lot of what has to be done, real time (days) it takes is edited. I have a 1997 Saturn SC2 that I just put a rear-mount turbo on. It brought back painful memories of all the cutting pipes, marking them, tacking them, fitting them, back off, welding, etc. when I saw Marty doing his. Particularly going from the front to the back with the water pipes. But, just like he's seen, feels SO good to finally get into it and feel all that hard work pay off!

  • I hate HATE O ring sealed thermostat housings... They're common in the chrome "I'm shiny so I go faster" aftermarket for American V8's, and holy crap, they're awful. They don't seal when new, and they tend to corrode in strange ways causing sudden terrible leaks.

    Dead ReckonDead ReckonPirms 7 Mēnešiem
    • @Mighty Car Mods Two reasons, in factory applications it was likely a cost measure. In aftermarket, it was just because it was shiny. Form over function has caused a lot of cars to suffer terrible fates... Just look at 2SEXY, haha.
