    New Here

    Whats up guys, My name is Mitch. I'm not to the site. I currently drive a 91 Toyota MR2 turbo. It's a great car but very impracticle for my family. 2 seaters dont do good with a wife and kid lol.

    I'm getting ready to sell it and invest in a bugeye scubbie. I looked at the STI's and really liked them but after reading the the EJ25 stuff is compatible with the EJ20 stuff I decided to go Bugeye so.

    It goes back to my honda days I suppose back when rolling around in an EG6 with a B18C5 was the ****. Somthing about rolling around with an STI block under the hood of a bugeye.

    You'll probably see me snooping around trying to learn more about this platform. Just wanted to introduce myself.

    Mitch

    If I find one for $24k I would pick it up in a heart beat. Good point.

    I'm asking $7k if I return it to stock. $8k in current form.

    Current mods are:
    Apex-i Intake
    Apex-i GT Spec exhaust
    Two's R Us MBC
    TRD Short Shifter
    AutoMeter Boost and EGT
    CT20B Turbo (it's the turbo that came on the J-Spec 3rd Gen 3SGTE's, It has a ceramic turbine wheel and crazy fast spool. It's about like having a 16G but with quicker spool.)

    I believe thats it. Cosmetically it's bone stock. I've never been to much into external mods. It has 90k miles on the motor which is a 93. 130k on the body it's a 91 you do that math

    I'll snap some pics and upload them.

    I runs pretty good. Right now I have to replace the coil but other then that it runs like a top. I've never ran it in a 1/4 mile only 1/8th but my best 1/8th was 8.6@ 84mph with a 1.9 60ft on yoko ES100's.

    Very much Agree

    I owned an 86 N/A first gen before I owned this one. I AutoXed with it. I just had a JDM 4AGE with intake and exhaust.

    The car is severly covered in pollen. Since the coil went bad I havent been driving it so it's just sitting at my office for now. All original paint as well.
    She shines like a georgia sun set everywhere except the back bumper that unless I wax it starts to oxidize

    But hopefully she'll be sold soon and I can have a new project. Thanks again everyone.

    They are a pain to work on but alot of fun. They make great AutoX cars as well as great Drag platforms. I've out launched several AWD's.
