Re: Turbo and Manifold extraction

I mean the bracket that goes from the block to the turbocharger. It's tight, but you should be able to get a socket in there.

Misunderstood regarding the oil feed!

Re: Alarm/Imobiliser

Hmm, seems unlikely it'll be OEM but you never know. If it has an aftermarket system, chances are it's somewhere around the passenger footwell, or at least there will be evidence of the wiring being modified around the plug at the footwell as that's the most logical place to put it. Good place to st...

Re: Turbo and Manifold extraction

With great difficulty. Removing the support bracket (socket set should be able to do this) gives you more room. You can also get to the oil feed banjo bolt with the right combination of wobble bits / UJ's. This is assuming a decat downpipe, stock cat is bulky and gets in the way more. You'll also ne...

Re: Turbo and Manifold extraction

You can remove the turbo on it's own, or with the manifold still attached.

You should be able to remove the turbo support bracket and the oil feed/drain with the turbo in place though.

Re: Don't use GL-5 oil in MR2 gearboxes

I did, and that's great for you. I'll take the advice from people who work with these transmissions and have seen the damage GL-5's do to the synchro's in our transmissions time and time again. The API classification only rates protection for the gears, not the synchros, so the API classification is...

Re: Don't use GL-5 oil in MR2 gearboxes

Its GL-4 and GL-5 so no problems with it at all. If you have gearbox oil problems then it is OIL SPECIFIC and not GL-5 SPECIFIC. If the oil degraded your gearbox then the oil was crap. Absolutely not true. The problem is it's a slow death, it could take tens of thousands of miles for the effects to...

Re: Don't use GL-5 oil in MR2 gearboxes

MT90 is the popular option, but any good quality GL4 will do well.

Re: Missfire

Yes, rotor and distributor cap are possible causes. Do you know how old they are?
