View Full Version : Some of you dont have Facebook, and this is what this forum is for, so MR2 update

Well guys, Ive been working on the MR2 lately. Anyone who knows me knows I bought it from Baby Bear about 4 years ago and it broke and Ive let it sit and done nothing with it while I kicked the tires and amassed parts for it.

Well, in the past month, Ive completed my list and gotten working on it again.

So as of right now its on my lift with the Gen2 out. The Gen3 body harness is all installed and all wiring has been completed, so the "swap" part is done. I just need to install engine/tranny and hook everything up.

So, I just got my transmssion back from my tranny guy today. Im running a Rev2 ST185 gearset in an SW20 casing paired to a Kaaz clutch type LSD.

For engine, Im stock Gen3 longblock with all seals and replacement things (like hose from hell, all gaskets, etc) done to it. Im running GSC 268 Gen3 high lift cams. For a turbo, Im running a super rare Blitz KL380v turbo. Its a direct bolt on. Its basically a reworked, upgraded CT20b. Its supposed to spool faster and stay on power longer, and the guys across the pond are reporting 200-230kw worth of power out of it (somewhere in the 280-310whp range at 15-17 psi but I should get that or more because of my cams - most of those guys I found numbers on didnt have cams. On a Gen3, these high lift cams do a lot for you). I have a Berk Gen3 downpipe, a Greddy IC kit with 1 piece RacerX hotpipe, Berk 1 piece coldipipe, and Ive deleted the blow off valve. I also have a super rare IMEC Sports Gen3 Romtune ECU that raises fuel cut, removes speed cut, and lets me rev to 7800rpm

Anyway, I have a box from Toyota coming with the final stuff I should need, and if all goes well, Ill be raising the engine up into it tomorrow night, or on saturday, and this weekend, I should be able to fire it up.

So theres an update for you guys, I didnt do a project thread, I dont have a bunch of pictures, but Ill post some more info about how it feels and runs after I get it back together.

It really isn't just CT. All forums are in jeopardy.

I use the FB groups to find routes to sell things, but also unload things via forums.

I'm more active on forums than FB groups. But even then, I'm so busy that I'm in and out all day long online. We use FB for communication for work. It's easy and simple when we have customers.

BUT....shit...I usually just look things up on forums if I need to, share a pic from time to time, and ask a question if I haz problem.


Everyone here knows each other, and most of us are FB friends, but the forum is still a place to chat and hang out. I just have limited time. But a lot of people do.

I try to keep the dong pics off of FB, but if you want me to post them here....

MCcelica
11-15-2014, 08:21 AM
The minute I clear some of this other stuff off of my plate (school), I will begin to get the wheels turning on my project. It's going to be the free stuff first: IE Draining the gas (Yes, I know. I didn't anticipate that this project would go anywhere near as long as it's sat there), dropping the engine, stripping the car to a rolling shell, and sorting the suspension. At that point we may move so it'll get towed to the new place. If we don't move, then we skip that. From there it'll be a full restoration done right, but with a swap for more powa.

That will be a thread with loads of pictures.

So today seemed like it took forever for a bunch of little shit.

I replaced all the coolant lines in the engine bay, I had to cut and solder the 91 speed sensor wire in, I had to fix a few other odds and ends, I set Emily to the crossmember and engine bay with a bottle of simple green and she cleaned it up alot. It looks much better in there.

Engine is now hung. AC is a bitch to retain and keep in the car while doing an engine swap in an MR2. We got it though. So, I still need to connect up all the coolant lines, and the shifter cables, install the ECU, and run grounds, fill engine with oil, coolant, install front and rear mounts, and fit the crossmember, and start it.

I work slow, Ill admit it. But next session of working on it, I should be starting it.

Wewt for pics, cause I don't read. I was hoping for a pic of you jamming an engine up in its ass in a homo-car-otic way, but I'll take what I can get.

Either way, though. As far as the work itself goes, I have a saying for that. "Slow is smooth, smooth is sexy". Taking your time to get it right helps with not having to go back and fix shit later, when it's much more of a pain in the ass to do it. Work as slow as you need to, and git 'er done right the first time.

If Bob would have taken more pictures that night there probably would have been. I was flipping everything off as soon as we were done with it. I even took a picture of me flipping off his roommates coolant leak on his M3 and sent it to him. Who the fuck has a badass supercharged M3 making all kinds of horsies and yet still let it have a coolant leak?

It starts. It runs.

Minor shit to work out, but it seems OK.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1MlzuyY4pM2UUZKOHVIRXlvOTQ&authuser=0

Shitty microphone. Noise cancelling. Short video. No exhaust or intercooler piping hooked up. But it is running. Oh, and its like... OUT of gas. So I need to get it back together and drive it to the pump, OR get a can of gas and put some in. Cause its like... OUT LOL.

Luni
11-19-2014, 08:34 AM
So, somehow stripped the threads out on my driver side hub where the balljoint connects, so I need to get a longer bolt and a nut so I can at least drive it and put some miles on it.

I need to buy new rear hubs anyway, so Ill get on that. And I still have a goddamn oil leak from under the lower timing cover prolly from the fucking pump somewhere, but Im kinda hoping that heatcycling it a few times will take care of it (I havent had my oil up to temp yet, theres no way I could, it was being idled and slightly revved. I need to drive it and put some heat to everything and see if it is still there). I replaced like every seal in the engine, so Im really hoping I didnt fuck up the oil pump seal.

I also have some odd harmonic rattle somewhere. Right above idle, between like 1.5 and 2k rpm its this really fucked up rattly sound. Now, I didnt have my front crossmember bolts tigtened down to the chassis, and I suppose if the engine was transmitting any vibration through the mount into the crossmember that could have been rattling around, and I havent started it since I tightened those down.

So, I still need to install my 2 intercooler pipes and fix that balljoint mount. Once that happens, I can drive it down the street to the gas station.

If the oil leak doesnt go away, and I cant figure out my harmonic problem, Ill prolly take it to my buddy Trevor and pay him to tear it back down and figure it out. I dont know that I want to fuck with it anymore. He knows his shit, and he wants to do sidework to pay for some upgrades to his alltrac (hes the one with the 900awhp trac in Utah, username tjdouble007 on alltrac.net. Good bro)

Anyway, yeah. I still need to reinstall my lockbox behind the passenger seat, and reinstall the passenger seat itself. And I need to put my interior back together from running the Gen3 body harness. My stereo is ripped out, so that needs to go back in, and it needs new tires.

So, its definitely a project for next spring, but at least I start with a running car.

Oh, and I didnt know, before, but my turbo, pretty sure its dual ball bearing. It spins down after I shut the car off. The only time Ive ever heard that sound in the past is with DBB turbos. So, bonus there. Im exited to get my ignition timing set, and go get some gas and give it some beans to see what the bitch can do!

ChrisD
11-19-2014, 01:56 PM
Good job dude. It's easy to miss one of the oil pump bolts, could be something there. That turbo, cool, lie that sound.

Actually maybe it isnt ball bearing. Brian and Baby Bear dont seem to think it is. You can hear it spin down, but It only spins for like 5 seconds. They say Brians spins for like 20 seconds.

So I did some more work on it today. Pulled the passenger side apart, and found my "harmonic rattle". Its my timing belt. It seems my tensioner is bad and something in there is rattling, and my belt is slapping. There is a fair amount of deflection on it, it wasnt very tight.

So, I called Trevor and he taught me how to remove the belt while keeping it in time, the easy way. He said you can sometimes cheat, and elongate the holes so the tensioner slides toward the pulley and puts more tension on. So I took it off, an filed a slot to elogonate the holes, and it helped, but not a lot. The belt is tighter, and the rattle doesnt seem as pronounced, but it still rattles and the belt is still looser than Id like it to be, considering Ill be spinning that bitch up to 8k.

So, I need to order a tensioner from Lithia and redo the timing. Good news is Ive become pretty good at changing the belt while engine in the car, and man its so much eaiser with a lift.

I also found my oil leak. It SHOULD be easy to fix that too. Its coming from the pulley cover. So I should be able to just pull the cover off and put some FIPG on the seal and put it back on and that should go away too.

So, I guess progress is being made. Slowly.

Ugh.

Really, I use facebook to keep in touch with people I haven't seen in 20 years and to troll my relatives, but even with a fiber optic broadband the site just drags and crashes all the time and I'd rather look at forums.

Good stuff. Keep going. Always kind of a bitch when you thought it was done. I've got as coolant leak on mine I have to deal with, but at least it's winter so I can take my time now. Hope that leak is straight forward for you. With a lift it's so nice though, you can get in there in literally minutes.

I just hope that it IS that and my problems go away after I fix it.

Im looking forward to quite a while of enjoyment of the car. I understand if my turbo frags, cause its a used piece with no known history, but the rest, little shit like oil and coolant leaks need to fuck off. I dont want to be fixing that shit all the time. I replaced all those coolant lines and oil seals so I wouldnt have to.

Going to go to Ace hardware today and get some m8x1.25 x40mm studs and nuts and lockwashers. Gonna replace the bolts for the timing belt tensioner with studs, so its easier to slip over. Also going to pull my oil pump cover off and reseal that and get the timing belt reset for when I get my tensioner, all I need to do is stick it on, tighten it down and pull the pin.

Hopefully the new tensioner is the trick and no more belt slap.

U mad bro?

So got an update. Got the tensioner and oil leak sorted. Pulled the belt off, replaced tensioner bolts with studs, nuts and lockwashers, pulled the oil pump cover (where the gear is), and added some FIPG to where I could see the seal touching, so just traced it (really well I might add LOL), and put it back together. Got the belt back on, new tensioner back on, etc. Timing is good, tension is good, it seems to be as good as its gonna get.

So I put everything back together, and got as far as installing the intercooler piping. My coldpipe to throttle body inlet coupler dont fit. Gen2 is smaller than Gen3 on the inlet, so I had to order a coupler. I also need to find someone locally with a TIG welder who can weld in an aluminum bung I can srew an NPT barb into, so I can connect my AC Idle up VSV (yeah my AC works in this car).

Heres a pic. This was after I testfit my TRD bar to see if it woucl clear my hotpipe. It does. By like... a quarter of an inch.

That's a good question.

Unfortunately, there's no one here to answer you because they're all on facespace.

Nah, its up on my lift, parked.

It has a few issues I need to work out. I havent fixed the shifting problem. I have different shifter cables to install, and I need to tighten my alternator belt cause it squeals, and I have an exhaust leak from the manifold to head that goes away when its warm, so I think my manifold is warped.

Other than that, it drives great. Its fast as hell.

It is amazing how getting old kills shit like that.

Chaos has set since I got her home from NC. Why? I haven't called and got the insurance reinstated or the tags renewed. So I don't drive her.

Anyone that knows my history knows how funny and ironic that is.

For me its just practicality coupled with the fact that I dont HAVE to.

In my younger days, my MR2 was my only car. I HAD to drive the thing in the winter, so I had to outfit it appropriately. However, now I dont need to drive it in snow, so I dont. It just isnt practical for me to deal with it.

Ask you wife if she can get your balls out of the freezer and give them back to you for a few minutes. After she has given them back to you, tell her that since you have the balls in the family, you will be taking her car until you get yours fixed. If she loves you she will understand that driving a car with a malfunctioning brake system is dangerous and may kill you.

If she doesn't let you borrow your balls to make your declaration, she hates you and is hoping you die so she can sell your Celicas and collect your life insurance, then she and your dog are going to the beach. To find a sailor.

We both work. Maybe you should sack up and tell your wife to get a job, sucka! Then you'd know what it's like to not just be able to take hers when you want. We'll see how that works out for you. ;)

I do have a car I'm borrowing, though. Starting tomorrow.

I made my wife go back to work when my heathen went to school. She has been with Target for like four years. I still take her car when I want, but why would I do that, it is a Fiesta. And multiple spare cars, cause shit breaks, and I like to be prepared.

In this house, I make the rules.

I also told her she's not allowed to meet you fucking weirdos.

You are fucking hilarious when you get shitty. She wouldn't appreciate the nuts thing. I'm sure if she came to a Dragon, she'd try to forbid me to ever go back because of the whole nuts thing.

Youre so full of shit its funny. You cant sit back and say youd rather have your wife with you than not. Cause Im pretty sure youd rather her NOT be there. Theres just too much shit for you to get in while shes there. Now Rebecca, Im pretty sure youd have with you, but youd just as soon leave the wife home like most of us here would.
