That's a big snail! I had an MR2 Turbo for a while, AEM standalone EFI, Garrett GT2860 RS (.86 A/R), RMR intake manifold, etc. etc. etc. Was just starting to get it running right and was making 290 rwhp and 288 lb-ft of torque on the dyno. It was a fun car!

Here's the horrible setup the previous owner had for the A2W heat exchanger and reservoir...



I changed everything, put an HE in the front (in place of the A/C HE) mounted the pump below the IC itself, and ran 3/4" hose through the tunnel to the front. I remember after going out for a hard boosting driving, coming home and feeling the outlet of the IC and it was cold!

Here's my current project: A 1977 Celica RA29!


Lotsa work to be done!


My first attempt at some seam welding... Lots of work still to go.


The long term plan is to sandblast the interior, and weld new steel in place. Fix the body, probably put AE86 front suspension in. Brakes are already brand new all around including all wheel cylinders and master cyl. For an engine I may just refresh the 20R for now (it's down to 90 psi in each cyl) or if I find a 7M-GTE donor car cheap... I'd love a 1UZ-FE with a turbo or two hanging off it, but I DON'T have more money than brains!

good stuff. The engine I work on (PT6) has applications on helicopters as well, that's why I was curious.

I'm trying to get my employer to let me telecommute. Live in Whistler, work evenings, ride days. That'd be the life.
