Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
Any help/opinions would be appreciated.
Yes, if you leave it stock. But with any with car, when you start making more power, stuff is going to break.
I beleive its about a 400lb differrence. IF you want a car that will pull a mean 60 foot, and you need it for snow. Then get a GSX. I have GST and I would definalty trade it for a GSX. I will spin the wheels through 1st and 2nd and I am still on the stock turbo. However, from a roll, I will beat a GSX with similar mods due to weight and drivetrain loss from AWD.
The 3sgte and 4g63 are pretty similar engines both can make alot of power, but its just cheaper to do it on a DSM because MR2 parts are so expensive and very limited.
The crankwalk issue. I would recommend buying either a 1995 or 1999 Eclipse because they have the lowest rate of walking.
yeah the mr2 turbo comes the ct-26 which is about equlivent to 16g. The only thing with mr2 turbos is that you have to get a fuel cut defense system because when you raise the boost over 12 psi you hit fuel cut.
god that would suck
Fuel Cut Defensers are pretty cheap...so it's not a big ordeal. If your looking to go fast for a minimal investment, then a DSM is perfect for you.
I have my 92 Talon tsi AWD and in 20 ays or so I'm getting my friends fried 86 MR-2. I say you keep both. I find 4AGE engines for $250 and 4AGZE engines for $650. I think they make nice, cheap projects.
I'd keep the MR2 and be glad it drives nice and shifts like a Miata. There are lots of things you can do to them....turn it into a Ferrari kit car if you want.... Are you on a forum for the car? Should be lots of things to find out there for it. Its a trick car and its always good to be unique. Stay with it, it'll save you money and you'll learn to love it. If you find answers to your problems.
you have any pictures of your 7? i like them alot. hopefully ill get a tt soon when i get money.
They are really fun cars. What goals are you making for yourself? MR2s are very good auto-x cars. There was a WRX vs MR2 auto-x and the top 3 were MR2 NAs. Like 20 WRXs and <10 MR2s.
They do. But it's more of the different layout people are adjusting to (at least teh AW11 in my experience) All the weight is in the back....complete different from a FF setup. Until 93 all MR-2s experience that snap understeer problem; that is what hurts them the most in Autocross.
You have a fine car, but its up to you. AWD is nice but RWD is FUN!
