FS: 1996 Toyota MR2 Turbo REV4 6 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 19
Hi lads, time has come to consider parting with my pride and joy. I only putting it here as I hope she gets in to good hands.


Owned the car for over 4 years, for those that don't know me I am over 30 mature driver, considered my car as a classic gem rather than Jap toy. She is my 5th high performance car so there was no messing and was looked after like a princess.

Due to new work commitments and a Passat tdi to meet those commitments (I am sorry) I will be putting her off the road till next year or selling it if genuine buyer comes forward.

It's well sorted mr2, a lot of thoughts and research and try and error went to getting it to this state.

Car came to me with clutch and gearbox issues , bone stock apart of body kit and wheels, even with a standard Bov I got it sorted with new gearbox (off Anto's car) and 4 years of doing bits and pices as a hobby.

Here is how it looks now:

Spec:

Tax: 08/15
NCT passed and till 07/2016 !!

Engine:

3S-GTE REV4, standard turbo ct20b - never messed with, never seen Boost Controler !

- Blitz LM air filter (have stock with all bits and Hks Panel)
- Forge dump valve (have stock Toyota one)
- Genuine Greddy Trust Intercooler with Gts chris surround, Spal fan, front plate (have stock)
- Berk 3" Down Pipe again not cheep e-bay stuff (flexi, mounting plate) (stock cat here for nct)
- Wallbro 255lph fuel pump just as precaution
- Exedy pink cluch
- Light weight flywheel
- TRD engine mounts
- Moongose twin exhaust

Suspension:

- Full set of BC Coilovers with optional 4/6 kg rated springs - went trough 3 sets of suspensions before biting the bullet and buying this new. have all papers, key, unused stickers.Fully adiusteable damping 32 ways, camber , hight

- TRD rear Strut brace
- Tom's Front strut brace (resprayed in TRD colours with TRD logo so maches the back)
- TRD Front antirollbar
- TRD Rear antirollbar
- New links as they came with BC's

Body Work:

- Full 4 piece body kit, genuine Key Office job from Japan (car came like this) so no stuff glued to old bumpers etc, Car looks like some special edition rather than standard with tuner kit. Very nice and I haven't seen other like this in the country. Makes it look longer and sharper

- Bomex duck tail spoiler and tom's air scoop.
- Man in Dandism rear window sticker

Interior:

- Very clean, no holes, no extra gauges
- TRD (rep) Gear Knob
- Rouge Motorsport leather Seats with MR2 logo - Unmarked !! No wear on bolsters
- MK3 Airbag sterring wheel for Nct, and Personal Nardi flat Bottom Steering wheel
- Man in Dandism Car mats

Wheels/ tyres

Genuene 16' Staggered AME Tracers (bang-on MR2 recomended fit)
Toyo Proxies all around. 2 years old - front 3 years

Also Clifford Alarm and immobilizer
2 sets of keys, fobs.


As I am crazy perfectionist here is bit of my paranoya:

Fiew very minor marks on the body (stone clip)
Parking dent (2 euro size) and scrach on a drivers wing (2 inch long, tuched up for now)

Car was respryed at some stage and as far as paint is nice and shiney it could be done better (around windows) Fiew hair line cracks and body kit can't avoid it on irish roads

Central lock does't always work on driver side (locking with fob and key just to be sure) - needs that little servo on a lock I had few offers of it for free never had a time)

Electric aerial disconected due to being noisey so will need fix - again 30 euro new from Mr2 Ben or 12 GBP insert on Ebay.


Will easy see 300+ bhp if you want it just needs boost controler. All and I meen ALL other things and more are there, I never needed more power as when the car came to me was very healty stock, with few bits its cosiderably faster than stock, so risking relayebility for extra 25 -30 hp just wasn't my game.

Its nice to drive , sticks to the road, exhaust is not to intrusive. With mental power and acceleration, quick response. It is setup for lets say fast road use, but useable on road trips and sometimes to take it to work on a nice day. And turns heads everywere it goes.

Will be looking for around 4200e for it.

Well Cork2802 Price has space for some friendly negotiations but I have just checked dondeal and it is cheepest REV3+ Turbo (Rev 4 in my case) out there ??? and thats for a well sorted , Nct'd car that you jump in and drive.

Plus it is well known car by many members. And was worked on by Anto300zx who will confirm the shape of it and type of owner I am.


Other thing is the hotest topic on Mr2.ie - is Dan's 2400e mr2 that didn't even get home and by the looks of it it will be a scrap and parts car ... (check his topic)

Btw. Dan sorry for using u as an example - i am acccualy guttet for what happend to you.
