The MR2 gets a shiny new turbo

Marty has been hacking away at this nugget of an MR2 for weeks and you're (still) along for the ride! The stock turbo looks broken, the intake doesn't work, the dump pipe is wrecked, the bolts all seized. The car doesn't run very well but with some mad new aftermarket parts, the MR2 is going to be reborn ready to battle Moog's MOON Buggy!

MOOG's music is really on point lately during these past two builds. Are any of these new (or new to me) tracks publicly available? My playlists are hungry.

Might want to check the shifter bushings as well. You can upgrade to a spherical bearing kit. The shift bushings may have been replaced with brass ones, which suck ass. It can really foul up your engagement as well.

I wouldn't. Pay no more than $1200US for that car, and I'd only use it to go to work and back

It's so impressive having such an in-depth understanding of how a car works that you can custom make things/fit generic modern parts in order to actually improve the stock car. I watch some other US-firstrs and you just know they are botching and making things worse. You watch MCM and it's the complete opposite. The explaining super complex stuff in an easy to understand way adds authenticity. It's also made me want to try fix something up... not that I have the skills or knowledge but it just looks so satisfying.

A 5th injector... Into the intake... Ah, the old injectors couldn't either provide quite enough fuel, or more likely couldn't quite manage to atomize and mix the fuel thoroughly enough; or a bit of both. So just add an injector to the air intake to make up for the issue. Bob's your uncle.

I did wonder will the MR2 engine drop out below the car to work on it. Or must it come out of the top? Since you split open & fix cars, consider a Parts Washer. Very satisfying tools.

As a mr2 owner in your case its just easier to drop engine and gear box. It wont take long, just so easy to work with. Also then its easy replace timing belt and water pump.

Did I miss it, or did you change the cooling pipe that seems to be positioned in the worse place possible? Having sold Toyota MR2's, Supra's and Celicas back in the day in the UK, as well as owning 3 MR2's it's great to see one on the show. Both of you and your mad spirt, imagination and blend of car content make for cracking viewing entertainment, look forward to the next ping from the notifications, it's keeping me distracted, and others I'm sure whilst going through our UK Lockdown. Keep it up. Just awaiting my first mech order ;0) #chopped

5th injector on the manifold sounds like a cold start injector, only functions when temp is low, and a separate temp switch operates it. 90s Toyota are famous for them. Love the MR2 Marty, Moon buggy is gonna get Chopped! ✌️
