1996 Toyota MR2 Rev 3 GT-S for sale 6 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 6
Unfortunately the first pics I happen to get up on the site will possibly be my last for the foreseeable future.
However this particular tubby is well known on here and that's where i would hopefully like to keep it. This was my first mr2 never mind turbo and i can't imagine finding anything that will live up to it for a long time. (certainly not running cost wise)
I've had it now for 10 months and am the forth owner since it was brought into this country (ozzy1986 - Sean Osbourne 1st owner). Most of ye may know that not a single cent was spared on this which was well documented here by him.

I haven't modified it in anyway from how i bought it (no need to be honest), just maintained it as best i could. I have all the bills and receipts for the following:


HKS SSQV II BOV
HKS induction kit
NGK Plug leads
NGK Iridum 1 stage colder plugs
Uprated fuel pump (Walboro)
Blitz nur spec R exhaust de-cat
Apexi - Control system
APEXi G-Sensor
APEXi - EL2 System Meter - Boost
Apexi Power FC and commander
APEXi - AVC-R
APEXi - Rev Speed Meter
APEXi G-Sensor
AEM UEGO Wideband fuel/air gauge
SARD Fuel pressure regulator

HEL Brake lines
EBC drilled amd grooved discs
EBC yellow stuff brake pads
Greddy side-mounted inter-cooler
SSR lightweight alloys

BS4 Bucket Seats (Red Stitch - beautiful seat)
Sony Head Unit
Man from Dandism Mats
Ed Nardi Steering wheel (Red Stitch)
Shift Knob (Black Leather/red stitch)

This car is very fast and pulls hard through all gears before reaching full boost at a safe 1.2bar. It handles incredibly well and the upgraded brake kit means it stops really well too. I have used the car for both long and short journeys on all road types and there have never been any issues at all - it is an absolute joy to drive. There is no smoke or rattles from the engine. Smooth idle.

Proven 280bhp, can run higher but not needed.

The car is NCT'd until 02/14 however the Tax is just out.

The only points to note is that there is a slight scuff on the rear bumper and a very little bit of paint peel on the lip spoiler. Also poor respray of minor rust repair above jack point (maybe inch squared of area).

The mileage is reading at 148,126 kilometers (may change slightly as car is in use).

I will be advertising this elsewhere however not until the end of the weekend, as i would love to try and keep it with the community here.

I've tried to cover everything but please let me know if you have any questions or want more specific pics.

PM me for more details, etc.

Price: €3,250
Price: €2,950

Thanks for looking,
Cathal

Thanks Bommie & Damien,

Yeah it's crazy at how modern and well these look for a car of there age.
Really didn't want to do this but an increase in millage and the need to more space has forced my hand.
Took me bloody 5+ mins to click submit on the thread last night with so much doubt .

Either the market is near dead quiet or I've way over prised (little interest) . Anyway just want to make an update to the price to reflect that on other sites

Hi All,

It comes with great joy and great sorrow to say that my turbo is now sold as of today. Actually had the first view on Tuesday night would you believe since i put the for sale sign on. (sign of the times i guess).

It will no longer be seen roving the streets of this country as it's now off to Finland of all places.

Just want to thank anyone i have dealt with while i was an owner. Back to just perving again.

If a mod could lock up the thread that would be great.

Thanks,
Cathal
