Default My '91 MR2 with Gen4 3SGTE Swap

Some of you have seen the car around town (757 area) for those that haven't here it is.

The car started life as a red '91 with a blown engine. I swapped in a Gen4 3SGTE while retaining the stock transmission (S54). WireGap did my plug and play harness and PR1ME Performance built the installation kit. Suspension isn't anything special just Prothane bushings, new ball joints and S-Tech springs.

Bodywork and paint was done by Baddline Customs and Collision in Portsmouth, VA.

Took these at Little Island Beach this morning.

inb4 needs moar low / lose the lug nuts.

That was the goal. I just wanted to build something that was eye catching without being obnoxious. The engine runs off a factory computer so it's amazingly reliable. Gets just under 30mpg mixed too.

I like it, then again I always liked these cars. The lugs are super gay. Regarding the ride height I understand, no sense in having a slammed car in 757 in my opinion; there are plenty of places where you have to slow way down even with a SUV...........what they do with all the money they collect at traffic court is beyond me.

I bought the lug nuts thinking "yeah...that might look cool" upon installation it became "ah...shit" I've just been too lazy to put the lugs that came with the wheels back on LoL.

Very nice, love these cars. Needs wider tires though, not feeling the stretch.

Yeah that's most likely because they're Fuzion ZRi tires. I got them at a huge discount (being discontinued). I'll be getting new tires in the same size but they shouldn't stretch like these did. I might go to a 17x9 up front and a 17x10 in the back with some meaty tires but that's going to have to wait until after Woodsport finishes up their 6spd conversion.
