Unfortunately not: The car needs all the electrics sorting out properly (not the bodge job I've made of it! [Embarassed]), so I'll be leaving the car with them and hopefully picking it up next Saturday (if it's ready and I have time to get up there and back before the meal).

I can give you a buzz when I'm nearly there if you want? How long would it take you to get there?

About 3/4 hour I reckon.

Okay bud, well I'll give you a shout when I'm about 45 mins away from there and see if you fancy popping along.

As above - is the MK3 avaliable as a turbo?

if so what specs can be said of these babies?


My ears are burning [Smile]

I spent a lot of time looking at Turbo'ing Roadsters last year.

Short answer - not offically directly from Toyota. There are various aftermarket kits that you can buy and fit that are now well proven on various different cars. Off the top of my head, there are :

- The TTE Turbo kit from Toyota. This one has has approval from Toyota and doesn't loose your warranty on the car. Its ~184bhp and they also add various additional bits of bracing to the car.

- The Hass Autoworks kit - Based on a GT-25 Turbo. Probably one of the first independent tuner kits - Hass are based in the USA. There's quite a long wait for kits to be delivered, but there are at least three here in the UK - Slacey and ekona both have this kit. This one produces good power figures from low boost due to the turbo relatively large size - 250bhp i seasily possible.

- The Power Enterprises kit. This is the one that Rowland and I both have - its based on a small IHI turbo and is designed to be bolt-on with minimal effort. The kit I've got has had some customisation and includes a chargecooler and fifth injector. Its running 220bhp @ 7psi - I think the kit as standard out of the box offers 190bhp.

There are other options too - C2 Power in Turkey has a GT-26 based kit available too, and Rogue Systems is working on a 3S-GTE conversion for a Roadster.

Bear in mind that the Roadster is around 975kgs, a 220bhp turbo conversion gives the same power/weight ratio as a 280bhp Tuned MK2 Turbo - but due to the lighter weight has improved handling and progressiveness on the limit. Having owned Mk1, Mk2 and Mk3 I have to say the Mk3 is great fun around the track - but I use my Mk1 as a trackday tool as I can afford to break/ bend / fix things on it [Smile]

To give you and idea: Roadster footage from Elvington:

All the Hass kits I know of have a GT28*something* turbo on them (GT28R for all the ones in the UK that I'm aware of, for example), or does the GT-25 series number not relate directly to that code?

See this post from SC, the GT28R is known officially as the GT2560R - http://www.spyderchat.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=28114&highlight=gt28r

To answer the original question... I've heard rumours that you actually can buy a factory MR-S turbo in Japan. Apparently a limited run was produced to mark the end of the model with the turbo kit also available as a dealer fit option once the factory cars were sold.

I've yet to see any evidence of this though... I can't find any on Toyota Japan's product page:

Rumours eh? [Wink]

your right Patrick.

we've benn discussing it on ROC for a while.

Toyota Japan are releasing a limited number of cars with the TTE Turbo fitted, and a few other special bits, Bilsteins, TTE trim kits, slightly revised dashboard e,t,c

They will be available in Japan only and the through a very limited number of Netz Dealers.

I have this direct from TTE.
