Covid-19 lock-down 1 Month, 2 Weeks ago Karma: 137
How's everybody keeping with the lockdown?

I started back at work this week. I haven't been able to do anything with my MR2 because it's kept at my parents house. So I'm unable to visit as they are elderly.

Hey Marty,

I'm keeping alright, didn't get sick fortunately.
All I had in the past good few weeks is time and luckily I was able spend many days for my 2.
I've done everything I could think of which will be a pic heavy topic when I post it up.

Cheers

Glad to see some of us are still visiting the site and keeping well.

I finally pulled the trigger and now I am having my Laminova air/water intercooler designed. The intercooler is actually being developed at where I work. It will have five (roughly 600 bhp) laminova cores which will easily handle the power of my MR2. I am expecting it to produce between 400-450 bhp.

how does the size of this system compare to the oem?
how did you decide to use this system? Price/performance?
just interested in the pros/cons. I am keeping my engine setup as close to standard as possible at the moment but always good to know what alternatives are available

It's still in the design stage, but I know it will be longer. It's going in the boot so I don't need to worry about space.

If you look up Laminova intercoolers you will see that they are very efficient at heat transfer, more so than regular air/water intercoolers.

I'm not sure what the final cost is going to be, but it will be quite a bit more than a regular aftermarket intercooler for the MR2 Turbo.

Hey everyone, good to see site still running.
During lock down got around to clean up my 2 after another year of storage.
You can't really buy that priceless smell of old mr2 interior...
Filled her up with fresh juice, started first turn and took for spin on backroads.
Ticks over like clock and everything works as it should.
Apart from driver side door, wont unlock.
Any suggestions on solution?

The door won't unlock with key, key fob remote or both?
