    www.mr2oc.com  for all your mr2 , 3gste questions...alot of great info and helpful guys on there.

    I joined there when i first got the car. I find the forum hard to navigate and stuff... haven't been on there for awhile.
    I'll definitely have to check it out again for info though

        So any plans this winter to get oversized valves and titanium springs and retainers? Would be nice little hop up.

          here is when it got painted







          " look , i can count to crayon "
           
          Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
           
          Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

              I love that lip, is it just a 93 lip?
              Also is that the stock front bumper, cause when i took the badge off of my front bumper I noticed there were two locating holes for the badge. Did you just get those plastered in?

                That sounds like a great idea. Maybe next winter... gotta get the car running again first. Priority

                  The only thing is that the hood doesn't look like it lines up 100%, unless you just had it open.

                              Forged. Next winter will be more mods, after i get some cash over the summer. Progress is slow. Give it a year lol.

                                  Checking out forged internal kits today, what do you guys think of these?
                                  http://www.ebay.com/itm/JE-FSR-Forged-Pistons-Eagle-Rods-MR2-SW20-Celica-Alltrac-3SGTE-2-0L-86-5mm-9-0-1-/390364288944?hash=item5ae38657b0&item=390364288944&pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr
                                  They're +0.020" Over Bore too, which is what i'll get the block machined to.

                                  Anybody done a water meth on their car? Interested in pro's and cons of the system...

                                    JE pistons and Eagle rods. I would go for it haha.
                                    As for the water and meth..
                                    1) Cooler intake charges (similar to what a bigger intercooler does)
                                    2) Steam cleaning your head and valves
                                    3) Drastic Reduction in knock/detonation.
                                    Since it reduces knock/detonation, your engine will advance timing (or you can manually advance the timing, thus making more power - which is the same result you get with running high octane fuel). Does it work? Heck yeah it does! You'll be able to run more boost, timing and get far better and more consistent performance from pump gas.
                                    Copied and pasted that all hehehe.

                                    If you plan on running more boost on pump gas id recommend it! I don't really know of any cons as all my friends haven't had problems with it.

                                      Copied and pasted that all hehehe.

                                      If you plan on running more boost on pump gas id recommend it! I don't really know of any cons as all my friends haven't had problems with it.

                                      Thanks man, detonation was apparently what killed my car in the first place, so that's worth it alone lol. I'm already running more boost, don't think i'll ever go past 20 though.

                                      I haven't heard of anyone having issue either, its very tempting. Plus that extra power...

                                          Oh and I'd go for the head and rods. Seen a few builds use them in the alltrac community

                                              Woo. That's intense. I'm only doing 9 (stock) better turn her up when I get me a controller ;) I can get all tires spinning on a wet day at 15psi. I know that for sure! Been done :) 18 must be intense with so much less drivetrain

                                                I'm figuring it was always low on compression, cause it was quick, but never as quick as it should have been. So I'm expecting a pretty good gain with the machined block and forged internals
