Cars for Sale/Wanted/Trade / FS: 1993 Toyota MR2 2GR-FE Project
« Last post by kdavidmazur on Yesterday at 12:03 AM »
YEAR, MAKE & MODEL: 1993 LHD Toyota MR2
CONTACT VIA (E-mail, PM, phone number, etc.):contact me via PM

Decided to try and sell my MR2 project  :( Would prefer to sell everything as a package but will be looking to part out as time goes on. Reason for selling is myself and my friend who were going to do the conversion just never were able to find time. I have been very busy with the race team at the University and might be working for a professional team in the Pirelli World Challenge next year.

Chassis is rust-free and was at one time the fastest stock turbo'd MR2 in the US. Currently is a roller and airbag is included with car but not pictured.

All parts necessary to complete the swap have been collected:
-2GR-FE engine (from a 2009 Camry with approx 32k kms), includes starter and alternator (most salvage yards charge extra for these parts)
-ECU matched with key and steering column assembly
-electronic throttle pedal
-ACT clutch
-Fidanza lightweight flywheel
-"Gouky" machined aluminum motor mounts

Parts included in sale:

-Berk dual tip

-E153 LSD
-TRD short shifter

-1993 MR2 Turbo rotors and calipers
-Tein lowering springs
-Koni Yellow struts
-TRD sway bars

I will add more relevant pictures when I have a chance to get out to where the car is being stored.

On the same page as @cluelessk

It seems like a couple of things.

The employees are lazy. Not trying to solve the problem and not WANTING to learn. Just deal with it until they give up and push it out the door.

The other employees most likely reinforce that behaviour by doing the same things themselves.

Management isnt taking the time to properly train and educate the new employees on how to properly do the procedure. Education and training is a costly thing that most places cant afford since the turn over is high and time is short. They think "why bother" and let the rookies just donk around until they either quit or get fired... for lack of effort or knowledge. Go figure.

Now, I dont know your truck, and I am not in any way saying that you have set it up wrong. Is there a chance that your lift/tire combo is messing with the suspension that is making it difficult to align?

If you end up going elsewhere, the techs at Gerry Gordons were awesome with my legacy when it was lowered, they had the only inground lift at the time.

Which location are you going to? The Kal Tire on Warman has always provided me with excellent customer and tire service.

How else are they supposed to learn?

Management sounds like the issue. No new tech will do great work if he's surrounded by slackers.

If you paid by CC just do a chargeback if they don't refund you, your CC company will always fight on your side.
Brakes & Suspension / Elantra Front end part torque specs
« Last post by 2009_Elantra on October 22, 2017, 04:44 PM »
Hi Everyone,

Replacing the wheel bearings (well, probably only passenger side now) on my 2009 Elantra. I was going to try and do it myself on the car, but there is apparently not a place in Winnipeg that has the wheel bearing press tool for rental.

Plan B was going to be if the tools were not getting it apart to take it to Piston Ring that can press the old one out and new one in for $35 so I guess that is now plan A.

My question is does anyone know any of the following torque specs for a 2009 Elantra:

Strut to knuckle bolts
Tie Rod bolt
Ball Joint bolt(s)
Spindle Nut bolt

I think those are the critical ones I was hoping to get, but if anyone has the brake caliper mount to knuckle spec as well as the caliper to caliper mount spec that would be good to have too.
