A few confusing things in your Post.

You say you're selling your REV3 Turbo with a freshly Rebuilt REV2 engine

When in actual fact it's

Just a REV3 Shell with a REV1 Engine not a REV2 with just the REV3 fueling. Certainly ain't a REV3 Turbo [Shame on you]

Yes that looks a lot like a rev 1 throttle body to me !

I do not take kindly to your comments as you suggest I am ripping someone off.

The car is not just a rev3 shell. It is rev3 turbo from the factory with from the factory rev3 engine management, rev3 fueling, rev3 turbo, rev3 lsd/box. All that it left the factory with. Missing the rev3 engine granted.

Regardless of all of this it is a very quick car, zero rust, lots of decent extras with good power.

If you wish to discuss further please pm me.

I must admit it not having an original rev3 engine puts me off or I'd be over it like a rash

The engine is very strong, pulls well, sounds very nice, starts on the button. If it was the full rev3 with the engine - given the specification and how clean the mechanical work and bodywork is - the price would be higher. I have a rev4 turbo MR2 and there is not a lot to choose between the 2 of them in performance. The red one is far more aggressive with the Blitz exhaust and de-cat.

I don't understand the disadvantage of it been a rev 2 engine if it's running all the management of the rev 3 ie no AFM etc surely there isn't much difference? I could be very wrong though.

Actually its said the rev 3 block is weaker than the rev 2 tho others would disagree so it could be an advantage

I think it's all because it says a rev2 block with rev 3 upgrades, When it looks like a rev 1 block with rev 3 upgrades.

The rev 1/2 are supposed to have a stronger block,
Smaller throttle body.
less lift on the valves
Higher compression.


I don't know if this will make much of a difference tho... ?

Looks a nice car anyways ! GLWS

Appreciate the comments. The other guy I did not take kindly to as to say it is just a rev3 shell is very wide of the mark.

To recap it is a 1995 Rev3 Turbo from the factory (paperwork to prove) with from when it left the factory Rev3 turbo engine management, Rev3 turbo 550 fueling, Rev3 turbo gearbox/LSD, Rev3 suspension, Rev3 turbo. Likewise it is rust free with photos showing the work done, a full re-spray (not that it needed as old photos will show) with lots of decent extras which at a guess are worth:

1. Freshly built rev 2 turbo engine fitted done 8k since build using all branded parts ARP bolts, cometic head gasket, ACL race shells, new valves, etc - At a guess worth 1000.
2. LSD gearbox - 500
3. Rev 3 turbo and management rebuilt CT20B turbo - 500
4. Full turbo back Blitz NUR Spec Exhaust - 200
5. TurboSmart e-boost controller - 9/10psi, 13/14psi, 17/18psi - 100
6. Grooved discs with yellow stuff pads all round - 50
7. Goodrich flexi brake hoses - 50
8. HKS lowering springs - 100
9. Rear Subframe and trailing arms, rear anti-roll bar, inlet manifold all powder-coated white - 150
10. HKS side-mount intercooler - 200
11. Alloy radiator - 100
12. HKS Blow off valve - 100
13. Good condition black leather seats - 150
14. Rogue Motorsport Rev6 Engine Lid fan kit - 200
15. Personal steering wheel with boss - 100
16. Super Advan 17' Rallye alloys - 400

So you get a rust free turbo car with all the above. Yes it doesn't have the rev3 turbo engine but if did I would not be selling for 3500. I still think the car is worth more and given I have sold a few of my other cars may just keep it. As mentioned I have a Rev4 Turbo also which has a Berk Technology exhaust, few extras thought now as JDM as the red one. Both are similar in performance, etc.

On the engine front I know the car has a Rev2 dizzy cap, Rev2 HT leads, Rev2 cam cover gasket, etc. Like I said at the start if I was selling the for top money fair enough but for the condition of the car, all the extras it could have a bog standard N/A engine in it and wouldn't be a terrible price.

What I would kindly ask is if you are not buying the car please do not post as only extends this thread unnecessarily.
