1990 Toyota MR2 Mk2 Turbo Rev1

Done a little bit more last night and tonight. The stereo was crackling all the time, turbo timer stuffed up behind the dash and the cig lighter was not working. Also untidy wiriring above the foot pedals which kept dropping down whilst driving.

Had the dash plastics off and stereo out, found and fixed a broken wire which cured the stereo crackle, clipped the cig lighter connection back on and tidied the wiring above the pedals and cable tied them neatly out of the way.

Also mounted the turbo timer below the steering column (used cable ties for this as I do not want to damage the dash or make holes).

I also removed the volt and boost gauge screen which was mounted inside the clock recess and ran it into the gloveboxalong with the control joystick. I will need to come up with a solution to make it look neat in there.

Had a quick wipe down of plastic and put everything back to together for now. I am missing an ashtray and a stock clock now if anyone has them for sale please PM me.

Right. After the last load of messing I had relocated my voltmeter screen to glovebox and also ran a new iphone cable there too. I made a balls up and connected a wire up at the rear of the stereo which kept blowing the fuse to my sidelights, finally retraced my steps tonight and sorted that issue!!

After moving the voltage screen I was left with a gaping hole so purchased a new stock clock and also replacement ashtray. I thought the original clock cable had been cut at first but eventually found it tucked behind the side of the speedo cluster.

All back together now. I am currently in talks with Alan Bryson to make me a one off pod for my volt screen which will neaten it inside my glovebox.

Really enjoying sorting a few bits myself, nice to have time on the car for a change.

This is going to be the new spot within the glovebox for the screen.

Right. Well aside from awaiting for my wheels to come back.. My car now has literally no niggles. The Stern wheels need to go back on and Abflug arches to be done, but this is the best the car has been in a long time.

Had discussions today with Matt at Rogue regards a forged build. It will be started around October and the aim is for it to be built for a reliable 350bhp, with the potential for around 400bhp in the future.

I still currently have my original rev1 block, but Matt has advised me the rev5 blocks are considered a better option due to being less prone to cracking at the water pump area. So i have a decision to make on which way I go with that, keep my original or go rev5.

Rev 5 NA? Given the minimal amount of work to make it happen....go rev 5. Also get a comparative quote from YVS. You'll be surprised.

Sack ripoff rogue off and go to yvs.

There was a guy earlier in the year who posted a quote up for a forged engine build from both companies, one was realistic, the other laughable

Rogue provided a rather expensive quote for me too.

Cheers guys. I will have a chat with YVS before I agree for Rogue to carry out the work, I guess it would be silly not to compare a couple of quotes.

In the meantime, yesterday this happened..
