    Ha I bought mine for $11,5 in 99 with 32,000 miles on it. Enhanced you're right they are very unforgiving but if you know how to drive them you'll be fine. I almost ate a tree on the "Hi 5" run near Kansas City but as the back end started to come out I kept on the gas which kept me from spinning. Then, after I changed my pants, I went and bought new tires. My MR2 always took care of me.

    Oh but I NEVER drove mine in the snow or rain. Not because I was afraid, but because I didn't want to scratch her.

    I still miss my old MR2. It was a mkI NA, not a Turbo but awesome all the same. I really enjoyed the purity of a mid engine, light weight rear drive car without gimicks like power steering and ABS

    The turbo MR2 is a quick beast. 200/200 at the crank stock, on an engine that is basically 2/3 of the Supras...lots of potential with the 3SGTE. In a perfect world I'd have one of each

    a dude in my club has a 2nd. gen turbo that runs door to door w/ my STi, i've run a best of 12.8 so far. it's got a sweet wide body kit and looks more like a ferrari than a jap car. good run though.

    Lol, I had a 91+ Turbo trying to mess with me (in the Z06) the other day on the freeway. I could see if I was in the Evo him messing around, although that would have been ugly too. But it was pretty cool, it was pretty clean looking (lol well what I could see after I slowed down )

    For the MR2 people who know MR2s or frequent the MR2 boards I don't know if you guys know Adam Singer from Kansas City. I remember the video of him racing a 'Vette in his 92 MR2 turbo and on the video everybody was making fun of him. That is until he put a beatdown on the 'Vette. That just proves you should NEVER underestimate any car -- even if you have a Z06. My friend stomped his neighbors C6 into the ground with his Talon. The guy thought there was no way in heck the Talon could keep up, but the Talon runs high 10s-low 11s. A classic case of underestimation. And proof that there IS replacement for displacement.

    Yeah I know Adam (V8Eater) we actually met him in Vegas a few years ago at an MR2 meet. I have even seen video of him beating a Viper. Believe me I dont underestimate them, I know what they can do. My buddy Jeff from extremeboost is making over 800+ to the wheels, and our MR2 with the GT35 was going to be making over 600 after tuning etc.

    But I have been around MR2's enough to know when I have them outmatched, and this guy I played with in the Z06 was maybe a mid 13 sec car.

    3sgte

    is a strong engine. These cars can handle a tremendous amount of mods and hp with stock internals. Another car with this engine was the 90-93 Celica All-Trac which also had AWD.
