That's a pretty great gallery. I just wish I had half the skills and tools necessary to do that.

Wow...

what engine was that? An 18rg-t? Or a 22re-t? Or some weird one-off? Or something I don't know about? I didn't know that Toyota had ever messed with a twin-plug head design...

If I had to venture a guess I'd say 4A-GE, turbo'd and with a modified ignition. Both the 18r and 22r were single cam. Whatever they did, that's definetely a GE head, 3S or 4A.

Thanks Tash, great link!

Edit: Was just looking again, missed the "turbo" on the valve cover. That's gotta be a 3S.

The engine is a 4TGTE.

It was designed for that particular purpose.

Yup, murg was right. The Europeans had a totally different line of engines. My European spec 83 I had came with a 2Tb engine. It was a twin carbed engine that loved to rev! Thing had a wonderful growl to it!

Why didn't they just find a better body? It seems like it wasn't exactly worth it!

What page?

Cause it's a flash and just links from the beginning?

I didn't notice any MR2s but did see another 84 Rally car and a 2nd gen street car.

There's one in town here that comes to my store a lot. Poor thing's in worse shape then my coupe, which isn't easy to do. :) Cardboard rear windows and everything.
