Welcome To My MR2 Turbo Website
This web site features my 1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo containing general information, modifications and pictures during my 27 years of adventurous MR2 ownership!
Another annual update on my MR2, a good year of trouble-free enjoyment, details below of some adventures:
May of '20, I painted all my brake calipers with POR15 semi-black for the 3rd time. This paint is amazing, with its self-leveling properties is super easy to apply, lasts long & gives it the look of being powder coated. I also replaced my Fr/Rr TwosRUs sway bar end links with another set, my 3rd full set. With my firm suspension setup they last about 5-7 years before they start rattling over little bumps.
July of '20, purchased MR2 Heavens seat belt restore in Porsche GTS style (solid black w/outer red stripes). You send in your old belts & a few weeks later restored versions arrive. I didn't realize how faded the OEM belts actually were, this is a nice subtle change to the interior.
February of '21, decided to replace my 20yr old TRD short-shifter; I wasn't having any issues, just wanted to try a new version. I installed Superklasse: C's/TRD hybrid short stroke shifter, drop plate, base bushings & shifter cup bushing. Shifts are a smidge shorter but definitely firmer, must admit the OEM shifter cup bushing was very sloppy.
May of '21, I needed new tires & Yokohama no longer make the S-Drive in my 215&245/40/17 sizes so decided to try Kumho's Ecsta PS31s. Cost wise they are much cheaper, almost 1/2 price of the Yokohama's & so far seem to be very good handling & quiet tires - time will tell.
July of '21, I completed a full 18hr detail consisting of clay bar, machine polish, paint correction, paint prep & ceramic coating. Also cleaned the wheels, exhaust & interior but not a full leather treatment. It was my first time using ceramic coating; I purchased BlackFire Pro from Autogeek, fairly easy to use & loved the results.
