    Evo RS (Stock) vs. MR2 Supercharged

    Flowing through traffic, I find a hole and open up not knowing their was a little car not far behind that wanted to roll. I see a MR2 way back, so I open up and notice I'm not making the amount of distance I thought I would have

    anyway, I slow down for him to catch up, he gets behind me, we're going approx 70mph. He cheats a bit, he pulls from behind me and I thought he would pace with me before we started but he gunned it from behind and kept going.

    He pulled about 1/2-1 car on me and it took me a long azz time to pass him. Redline 4th gear we were even, only until I went into 5th I pulled about 1 car lenght on him and he shut down

    It was the last supercharge model they made. I had no idea those cars were that quick. I almost cried, then called my friends and they said those cars could run

    Whats the 1/4 times on those cars?

    not sure if theyre turbo or supercharged. I'm pretty sure it was the last model, not the recent one

    it had kind of a long body

    the 88-95 MR2's had a turbo model. The 00-05 are NA from the factory.


    Sweet race!

    Actually,

    In the US:

    Gen 1's: 86-89 Supercharged
    Gen 2's: 91-95 Turbocharged

    I used to have a 2nd Gen. With an K&N Cone, MBC at 15psi, and HKS SSQV (which made me slower), I was able to hit 14.05@97.xx with a 2.05 60'.

    My ex gf has two 91 turbo MR2s, they run mid 14s stock somewhere around a 14.6, but with a boost controller and exhaust they are easily into the mid 13s, you can make those things fly.

    You CAN make them fly but they're getting older, which is an issue. I still love those cars though. They styling and the engine was WAY ahead of its time in the early '90s.

    ive been looking to buy an AW11 SC for a project car, however, if i can find a turbo SW20, i may pick that up instead. finding an AW11 is hard enough, let alone one that's running. It sucks, but all the awsome 1980's japanese cars are now 20 years old.

    ^ I think my buddy still has hi 87 he is looking to sell, Its in decent condition, just not SC'd.

    Nice run with the MR2T They can be extremely fast. When I had my 20G turbo on our 91, I could pull away from most cars on the freeway. Then we went to a GT35R But yeah as mentioned they are getting pretty old, and if its not built properly you have all kinds of problems.

    You need some mods on the Evo...I nice turboback and reflash and you'd pull on him a lot harder

    The turbo model (the one you raced) runs stock anywhere from 14.6-14.8 usually. They responds very well to mods and just MBC and exhaust/intake they will run well into the 13's. I actually lost a couple of times to one from a roll that was only running 15psi with MBC and full exhaust.
    I have always wanted one of those cars. I dont know why but I have always wanted an MR2-T or a MKIII supra and to build it up. The best thing is that to get them into 13's doesn't require a build up, just bolt on's.
    Before I bought my GSR I was looking for one but couldn't find a turbo in good condition for the right price. All the ones that were in good condition were like $10k still.

    If you have the means, I would highly recommend picking one up. They are so choice.

    Actually I had a 93T for about six years. Awesome car. I bought it with 40,000 miles on it in '99 and put about $10,000 into it over the years. It had new everything, including a new CT-26 turbo (stocker), timing belt, ignition, etc., that Toyota paid for because I bought the extended warranty. I have to say that was the best car I ever owned. Of course I never drove it in rain or snow as the RWD could get a little squirrely at times. Fun though.
