Right so a little update for you and something to keep track of what I have done so far.

I have booked this week off work to do my turbo conversion!

Oh so I bought a turbo kitted roadster a few months ago and stripped it of the bits that I wanted to do my build and sold the shell and desirable bits back on to recover some of my outlay. The kit is a bit of a hybrid Monkey wrench racing one from what I can work out, it running power fc and was mapped at noble motorsport where at 10psi it produced 270bhp and 230ftlb

Monday saw me dropping my 50k mile the engine and gear out;
Tuesday saw me cleaning down the engine bay and get a few odd and side and investigate my old engine a little;
Wednesday saw me order some parts from Toyota and get more bits to clean down the gearbox, install engine and
Today should hopefully see my collect my bits from Toyota, install the gearbox and run the loom.
Hopefully Friday will see me fit the turbo kit and the other little bits and pieces as well as service it and have it up and running.....


That's the plan anyway and get the geo done on Saturday

I got my geo done last week also and the difference it makes always surprises me. Have you decided on wheels yet? I liked the photo shops

Sounds like things are going well and you will soon be driving around with your 270 bhp in the winter!

Heres something to look forward to.

Always good to get the afr checked for safety and interesting to see what power it makes.

I need to get mine on the rollers for the same reason

Might be worth a message to see if Charlie has space as it's one of his £40 run days

So Charlie did power runs and a couple of checks and said he was very happy with it and said it's all where it should be and don't change anything!
I did walk away with a nice result and a couple of print outs, I was told boost level had been set at 10psi

Great result!
Remind me again what the turbo setup you're running is?
- manifold, charger, Ecu, injectors and cooling?

Edit- just saw you're running power fc. Is the manifold mwr?

Most items are monkey wrench racing I believe

Turbo garret
exhaust manifold,
Intercooler with pipework
Exhaust system
Corsa vxr fuel injector and a intake

So you're not running a chargecooler?? That's really decent numbers given what's been achieved previously- I do wonder how much is attributed to the manifold?

So the weekend just gone I finally got to spend some time tidying her up a little

First job on saturday was to sort out the battery relocation I did on the fly to just get it running. It was a very rough and ready job, so using some spares I have hanging around I made it a bit nicer Its still not where I would like it to be but it loads better wouldn't you agree

Sunday saw some change and sorting out of the interior. When I sold it a few years ago alot of it was bought by someone who tracked it and then they stripped out it's always something I wanted to sort and not really got around too.

As it's January and it's traditionally a time when people stay in and also as I ended up buying an oil brunner of a roadster I decided it was to have more bits of it to tidy mine. The cubby bins and flaps where reinstalled as well as the plastics around the soft top and swapped out my fabric seats for leathers.

I still need to replace a few more bits of plastic trim and soft top too as mine has holes in it. This will be next weekend's job as well as remove the the UK pfl gearbox as my MR-S gearbox doesn't have a diff... gutted because I sold my facelift uk box thinking that I had a diff in my box

Today I am going to try to remove the soft top and frame from my parts possible try to remove mine as well and refit the better (the one with out holee) on to mine. It will be nice if I can do it and soft top fun this year

So I've been lucky enough to get a slot on MR2DC stand at practical classics and restoration show at the end of March at the NEC, this means I'm going to have to pick up the pace on tidying my lil beast up... 😁
Luckily there are after a resto project which mine is.


I have pretty much stripped the spares car at the mo and going to drive it out of the workshop on the weekend after The Megiures demo event day on Sat


Simple things I can start doing are
painting my brake calipers orange
painting the branding on the tyres and I am thinking changing tyre sizes to 225/45/16 on the front and 245/45/16 on the rear I generally run Toyo T1rs until I can get ad08r's
