Re: Facelift MK3 2ZZ Conversion?

Patrick Chambers (headcase) does the engine mounts for the drivers side very cheap. He can also do the manifolds too. If you have a Corolla then you need to use the MR2 and Corolla ECU as the Corolla ECU won't drive the MR2 dash. Give Patrick a call he'll happily advise / help out where possible. :th:

Re: Mr2-not ready to let it go

My girlfriend has the same thing with her secondary students (English teacher) they all love her car - especially with the summer wheels on! I cannot tell you what to do about a car with sentimental attachment (I'm probably the worst person to give advice on that front :laughing ). The good thing ab...

Re: Rev 2 turbo

Have to agree with notrouble. The stock clutch is good for 300hp easily - which a standard CT26 is not capable of. I'd say a new clutch is needed by the sounds.

Re: Rev 2 turbo

I think 14s are fairly achieveable with a healthy car. As this jap video shows...

Re: JAE 2018

I get the feeling they're going to alienate a lot of clubs - particularly those travelling from Scotland (Chasing 7 for example) or far afield...

Seems the organisation is going rapidly downhill :(
It would appear so. I had a very friendly and helpful relationship with Fuggles and Ruggles so am concerned too.

Re: JAE 2018

Finally - this morning had a reply from JAE... Hi Daniel We are just preparing to send the next communication out to the reps, so I thought it best to check your email address is on there… It was sent the last communications, but I can see that they haven’t been opened, so it may be worth checking y...

Re: JAE 2018

Nigel has said it'll open up more once these are sold and this is to try to stop clubs over-booking space.... but it doesn't sound like this information is being relayed.... Plus this also puts the food & trade stands at the furthest reaches from the other side of the site.

Re: JAE 2018

If you think JAE is expensive, have you checked the price of a Liverpool/Douglas return car ferry ticket...? Bloody hell, just had a quick look £290 for Jae weekend. Originally I only checked for reasonable hotels/ campsites but I didn't think to check the ferry crossing We could just close the win...

Re: 10th Anniversary MR2 Register - CHAT - add your car here

:th:

As for your question - if the car is running and driveable - could you get it to Bexhill on Sea? Patrick Chambers is your nearest MR2 specialist and not a big/expensive job to sort. The engine is the 3S-GE btw.

Re: Le Mans 2018

I'm afraid this one has fallen by the wayside for me as Rach is expecting with the baby due around mid May. All exciting times but not something I can attend or dedicate time to organise. If somebody wishes to take over this trip I can change my first post to them so they can orchestrate it from her...

You're right Gaz - he's just an 'adviser' now. Not to worry mate, I messaged him, he's got back to me and I've contacted the show organisers now. :th:
