Tabor J's 1990 Toyota MR2
Please read through it all, and comment with (constructive) criticism and comments. Thanks!
This is my 1990 Toyota MR2 Turbo. Unlike other turbo'd MR2s that come with a CT20, this is one of the rare few with a CT26 in JDM models, along with a TRD inspired suspension. It's mostly original yellow, except for the front bumper, which was replaced after a minor accident before I bought it.
If you can't tell by the license plate, I live in Japan. It's definatly an experience out here, but for the good. That also means that this little car is a right-hand drive. That took some getting used too. It was also a challenge learning to drive on the left side of the road. Trust me, many a swerve was made.
A bit dirty, but still punchin' hard. A good ol' 3S-GTE 2.0L engine. As I said, it's got a CT26 turbo, and at the moment it's boosting about 0.9 kPa (about 6-7 psi).
So far, I've got a HKS Cold Air Intake running to the left intake (yes, those side scoops work, they're not just for show), an HKS BOV (which is nice and loud), and a japanese exhaust (of which I can barely pronounce, let alone spell). There's a few other things, mostly cosmetic.
Unfortunatly, I don't have a lot of good pics of the interior yet, but as you can see here, I have no idea what my speed is in MPH without doing some math in my head. I've got some gauges I hope to install soon (Boost, Fuel/Air Ratio, and Oil Temp). Sadly, until I get it installed, all I have is that simple little boost gauge which really only tells me if it's spooling or not. I've also added a RaZO shift knob at 450 grams, which definatly helps with speed shifting.
I don't have any pics yet, but I've added a Pioneer double din head unit and had the car rewired with 7 gauge ProAudio wire. Within the next few months, I hope to upgrade the speakers. Right now, I'm actually using the 20 year old OEM speakers. Surprisingly, the car came stock with a seven speaker system (four 4x5's, two tweeters, and a stock (!) sub and amp).
Soon, I'll have more pics of the car and other upgrades, new and old.
