Russ' 1994 Hardtop 2GRFE V6 MR2

Postby immorality » Thu Oct 08, 2009 8:43 pm

I've gone though some old board threads and merged some of my old threads into this one to make it a more complete thread starting from when I actually bought this car, so here it goes...

Out for the first nice spring day - Feb.2010
At Last Chance Garage to begin the 2GRFE swap
New Clutch Clevis
First start of the V6
To the exhaust shop
PNW2011 Meet
TRD Shifter
Clear Toblerones
93+ Turbo Brake Upgrade & Bike rack
Exhaust turn downs
Total & Corner weighs
Prothane Bushings
Longer studs up front
New mufflers onto the KO system
West Coast road trip
300,000km on the chassis & 2013 Toyotafest medal
Pegasus headlights
Clear toblerones installed
Cracked Slave cylinder
New wheels
A little roll of the fenders
Sideswiped!


Alright, for those that missed out on last night's meet...

...with the great help of;
Carmen, for putting up with me through all of my MR2 filled ramblings and late nights,
my Dad for coming with (and paying for part of the trip),
Martin for allowing me to store the car in his famed "BMW Headgasket" garage,
Randy for driving me down to Martin's to pick up the car,
Duncan for the trip planning and the video camera!
and Eric for giving it her first wash on Canadian soil,

here's my new '2 all the way from San Diego, California;

Ya, Duncan thanks for goofing off at work for me!

Pete, it will be a while before I get to have them all refinished but summer is still a ways away.

Eric, it was no secret :D

Thanks Carlos!

I guess I never mentioned here, but it's a '94 NA Automatic. The price was right so I decided that I can swap it over to a manual transmission myself and not be out of pocket much. It's got power windows, locks and mirrors, A/C, but manual steering, no cruise.
