What kind of power you making on the sidemount?


Adrian road maps all his cars so no idea on exact BHP. Adrian estimated around the 500bhp mark.

Intake temps were never an issue whilst mapping so Adrian just kept going....got to 1.8bar and Adrian said everything looked fine....so we ended up at 2bar. I might get it on a dyno for a power run at some point but not really bothered about figures........i prefer just taking people out and see what they think.

It's silly fast in a straight line, i've just bought some R888R for track work as the Nankang NSR2 that are currently fitted are not to my liking on track. They seem ok around the 1.5bar mark but anything over that and they really struggle to put the power down.


you are kidding man!! I'm so tempted to just leave mine on a sidemount, would save sooo much hassle!


What side mount have you got? Going off what Si at YVS has said the greddy one is very good, and it works very well on my setup / turbo etc.


just an ebay one. I'd be keen to see intake temps with it. I could sell my CC setup though and buy a decent one.


I know from speaking with Si and seeing most of his builds that he's very picky with what parts to use. For example all of his big power builds are running the full race manifolds and the rare group A one mine is running. The only sidemount he uses are the greddy ones as they are very efficient and have seen good results on other builds and this one.

If your going for decent power i'd assume you'll need something better but it would be interesting to see how far the ebay one will go.

na i never intended to run any power through the ebay intercooler at all. it was only ever meant for me to get the car driveable for running in. I have a frozen boost CC core with PWR prerad and pump. It's just such a big hassle fitting it all that if there is an option to run my 480bhp goal on a sidemount, I would muuuuch rather do that. Less stuff to go wrong too.

Edit: apologies for hijacking this man. Feel free to get it back on topic!

On most of my other MR2s I've always gone done the cc route as I wanted to keep the use of the boot. But yes they are a hassle fitting and it's got to be done right for them to work. Plus I always found they always need topping up.

I guess it depends on your turbo and how it works with the side mount if you did get your hands on a greddy one [Think]

My turbo is is the Borg Warner s252sx-e. I have no idea how it’ll work on an mr2 but i do know EMS Power (now defunct) used this turbo as part of their kit for an mr2 so i assume it’s good. Depends on how hot it blows. I think water/meth injection may be easier to install than a chargecooler and be more effective.

Simon also built mine before i got rid last year, pretty much same spec as above .
GT3082R and it was mapped to 2.0 bar on a greddy side mount w/o water injection then wound back to 1.8 and ran very well with it.

Worth trying it to keep costs down and it might just surprise you. Plenty of people will put it down but most of them wont have even tried mapping with one.

So after i had sorted the seating and steering wheel set up to a comfortable position i thought what better way to test everything out........ so i went and booked a track day at ..........

2019-01-16_03-07-50 by Daniel Godfrey, on Flickr

I was a bit worried about the noise limits as this set up runs an external wastegate and Blyton Park is a 95db drive by limit!!!
The good news though was I know where the sound monitor was so i took it steady past that in the morning sessions.....then just before lunch i gave it full beans and i still had no issues which is good to know. [Twisted Evil]

I had changed the boost trim levels the week before on a friends computer down to 1.5bar so i had chance to get used to the car and the set up on track, also the fact that anything over 1.5 bar and the Nankangs start to struggle. I've now found a PC that supports the old school motec software so i'll be able to change the boost levels at track now!

The car was perfect all day and i had no issues. I don't really like the brakes...porterfields pads don't have great stopping power so don't give you that much confidence. I'm going to get some carbotech XP8s bought asap.
The tyres as expected weren't the best, but ok. Next track day i'll have some R888Rs fitted.
I kept changing the tyre pressures and damper settings on the BC coilovers throughout the day to see what worked well for my driving style. I found that even just a few clicks harder at the rear made the back end very drifty which was great fun but obviously not the best for times. [Laughing]

I will add a video of a few moments and a spin i had [Whistle]
Here are a few more pictures.

You might notice a few mods added for the track day in the form of the BGW and canards.
