    Howdy from Merica

    Hello from far side of the America. (USA)
    Just getting back into MR2s, had a MK1 SC back in the day. Been through about 20 914s but the 2s are so much better in every way.
    Now I have 2 91 NAs and a 1MZ VVTi package going together. I'll be breaking one for parts as its has a blown 5S.
    Any tips on the 1MZ swap would much appreciated I think the wiring is only tough patch for me. If I cant sort it myself guess I'll have Paul do it up for me.

    Some of my build pics. I'll start one for the Two soon.

    Howdy, and welcome to TB!

    Just replied to your post about wiring. Paul Woods makes a grand job of making a loom but you will not learn a thing doing it that way. Doing it yourself means that you will understand how to debug it in the future, or make further mods to the wiring etc. Trust me it's not that hard, it cant be, because me and a retarded kid sorted it easy enough.

    No idea on BHP stock rating is 220.So I think a little more with headers.
    What I have and did.
    01 1MZ VVTi
    01 Solara 5 speed with 06 spyder LSD swapped into MR2 center case.
    Woodsport motor mount, and I filled all my stock mounts with 90 D urethane
    JP performance headers with merged y pipe into stock NA muffler with high flow cat. (I think it sounds nice)
    Wiregap did my harness and it worked a treat and has the ECU in the stock location so no need to cut any holes.
    3 quart oil accumulator in the boot ( I used the power antennae power supply and switch to run the control valve)
    Had a heater tube leak so replaced the tubes with hose and replaced the fuel pump (stock Denso) while I was at it. All coolant hoses with silicone replacements.
    Generic fuel pressure reg. on the return side.
    Speedo was 20 MPH fast so used a Clarke Bros. ratio conversion box. Tacho is from Camry V6.
    I was surprised that my throttle cable connected without any mods after reading that it wouldn't.
    South Bend stage 2 clutch kit and Solara flywheel (direct fitment no mods)
    Car runs and drives like from factory. smooth, quiet with a welcome uptick in power.
    So now I just have to wait for spring so I can drive the damn thing as our roads are littered with cinder rock from snow season.
    I think shes a keeper so I can quit shopping for a Cayman.
    I would rate this swap as EZ to medium hard depending on your skills and shop facility.

    Here is a link to photo album since at least for me it's a PITA to post pics here.
    I'll keep adding more as I get around to it.

    Ah yes the mail man driving position.;-)
    Must say this site has been a great help with the swap.
