People seem to have misunderstood the MR2 love.
This car is not competitive. This is not a car you compete with for initial D ass bullshit. This is an auto enthusiast's oddity. Does it handle well? Sure. Will it race well? No, not exactly. Auto enthusiasts love it because it was such a unique cool idea that never caught on (the affordable econobox mid engine car) but it didn't catch on for a reason here.

I've got one, pic related.

I'll be real with you, and you WILL hear otherwise from other people, but owning and working on this car for 5 years I've learned the following. I'll try to keep it short.

1) Car handles like shit from the factory, regardless of model year. Especially with factory shocks and open diff, it's complete fucking garbage.
>pre-suspension revision models are fixable, more ideal geometry and adjustable front caster, you can get it pretty damn good
>post-suspension revision models will never be ideal but can still be improved greatly.
>Suspension is very simple to work on
>see: Wilhelm RaceWorks suspension geometry kit

2) Random questionable design decisions
>most stuff pretty easy to work on, car well put together, but a few shitty things like any car I guess
>Factory exhaust pain in the ass to remove, go aftermarket if you plan on doing work under there fairly often
>Couple coolant hoses a massive bitch to get to
>oil filter right next to goddamn turbo downpipe
>etc

3) 3sgte is a pretty good engine to get decent power out of with all factory internals, but lots of outdated shit
>pair a properly configured ecu with upgraded fuel system, upgraded turbo, and upgraded intercooler, and you'll be pretty happy with the results
>fucking ancient efi system, ancient ignition system, uses a goddamn vane-type airflow sensor ffs
>If you're putting a lot of work into your car you WILL want to go to a gen 4 swap relatively soon, ideally with something like an aem infinity ems

I guess that's it? I've got too much stuff to type out so meh. This car WILL be a massive fucking money pit if you're serious about it but it will be a WORTHWHILE money pit.

Also forgot to add under suspension:

Front caster is a huge deal on these cars.

You'd want ideally at LEAST 7° of front caster. It makes a WORLD of difference.

what's your suspension setup? I have a stock 91 and feel like i've reached the limit of stock suspension after thousands of miles of driving hard on the touge. friend of mine with a pretty much stock s2k can dissapear from my headlights within a mile or two, and he already has ohlins on the way. i'm on a budget so I'm just going with koni yellows but not sure what else to go with

>>14325786
If you want to get a mr2 make sure you get one that hasnt been modded. If you do get a modded one make sure that it has been done right. These cars are bitches to work on and simple things like a timing belt change or some coolant lines will be a nightmare.

Dont buy a project unless you are willing to spend a lot of time and money.
>>
>>14327465
dawg the handling ain't that whack unless the USA rev2+ suspension was fucked up. black or yellow bilsteins (UK or Jap that I know of) are brilliant. loads of mr2s are tracked regularly on stock suspension and do amazingly. no snap oversteer, great cornering. probably the biggest strength of the NA mr2 is the handling...

If you pair it with potato tier tires tho...
>>
>>14326482
Not srs sorry. Ive had some offers for around 20k on the car. I would consider selling and picking up a sw20 as a daily.

I'll dust off my ancient trip I guess, that other guy wasn't me.

I've got:
>Wilhelm suspension geometry kit
>Wilhelm caster plates
>Ohlin inverted strut coilovers
>Swift springs (5k front, 7k rear)
>Quaife torsen LSD
>Prothane (iirc) bushings
>TRD (hollow) swaybars front and rear
>random other little bits, like swaybar reinforcement plates, etc

So overall I've got at least $5.5k in suspension parts, probably a lot more, I really need to keep better track of my purchase records.

But if you're on stock suspension first thing I'd recommend is to get rid of the factory shocks/springs. They're dangerously soft. Don't go stupid hard either with spring/dapening rates. I wouldn't go more than 8k springs in the rear with factory sway bars. Fronts you want a bit softer but not radically softer than rear. Rates are up to personal preference. Konis are great, and will outperform most shitty coilovers on the market.

Next I would STRONGLY recommend the Wilhelm RaceWorks suspension geometry kit if you have the know-how to install it. Torque specs and assembly procedures are very critical. I think it's about $500 for the kit. It will make a world of difference, basically like driving a completely different (and not shitty) car.

If you've still got money after that, get the Wilhelm caster plates. They compliment the geometry kit fantastically.

>>14327764
polyurethane bushings are a plus but by no means a critical modification. Factory bushings are not horrendous on this car, and I probably wouldn't touch them unless they were going out or I had money/time to burn.

Rev 2 suspensions were identical everywhere as far as I know. Toyota got lazy with revising the suspension. Instead of correcting the basic geometry issues of the suspension (namely roll center and lolbumpsteer) to make it more controllable, they took the lazy way out and just extended the trailing arms. This made the car behave more predictably at the limit but also made it noticeably less responsive.

Of course people compete in MR2s with stock suspensions, and do well, as with many other cars with known suspension faults. It doesn't mean it doesn't still have blatant flaws.

The SW20 does not have a well-engineered suspension. Something like the Lotus Europa does. That's the fact, no matter how many people defend the SW20's horrendous handling characteristics as "HURR A BONUS FOR PRO RACECAR DRIVERS"

I've really got no clue until I go through all my records and finally compile an excel sheet with everything. I'd guess around $10k, not including the tons of parts sitting in the garage waiting to be either installed or sold.

Exterior is 100% stock, looks like any other ordinary '91 turbo, even down to the stock wheels/tire sizes (which I use most of the time). I'll post a pic. I haven't taken any real full body suspension pics, I don't have a lift. I've just got a few potato pics like related.

And here's a recent-ish pic.

>>14329415
In stock form it's still relatively fun. Both the NA and turbo have an okay amount of power. Rear-biased weight distribution is interesting if you've never driven one before. Driver controls, ergonomics, cabin view, etc. are all relatively good. Just don't expect it to handle like a Lotus or anything.

The first and third generation MR2s are also worth considering. Both have better handling characteristics compared to the sw20, and the mk1 is a CHEESE WEDGE

>>14329475
With the kit, the fronts will fit with stock 14" wheels (at least with a 10mm spacer like I'm using). Rears won't fit because of these two spacers. I've currently left the spacers off so I can freely swap between my 17" and 14" wheels. I use the 14" set with beater tires just for daily driving. I'm trying to avoid using my 17" wheels until I get a new set because they're a pain to take off with the hub ring adapters. Also they're ugly as shit.
