Over the past week I upgraded the MR2's brakes. Im running '87 caliper brakets and rotors. Rotors are Bradi (sister company to Brembo) OE replacement types. Im running PBR Axxis Ultimate pads, front and rear.
A few pictures of the completed engine install.
Currently have the factory 2ZZ header installed for test start purposes. Notice the piece of tile hanging, where header flange was cut. I did not want to risk burning the paint.
A new header is on its way. Purchased from David Lee and made by Brad Bedell. Once it arrives, I can complete my exhaust.
Photos of the new exhaust will be forthcoming.
Updated pics of the exhaust.
Here is the 2-1 B-Pipe I custom made for the header. Ignore my welding as I had yet perfected it, though they ground out nicely. The mouth was bumped to fit the inside of the flex flange and is not out of round.
This is the header and B-Pipe connected. And a layout of how the exhaust is fitted to the car. The elbow from the B-Pipe to the cat is 2 1/2". From the cat back it is 2". There is a single 2" elbow that exits the muffler in the factory location.
