One of THE best if not the best mr2's Ive seen. I used to love the widebodies until it was over done and now back to clean lines. Good job and very nice! I'd like to see what that setup runs, looks impressive.

This is one of the best looking MR2 Ive seen. There was anyone painted orange that was pretty nice but not nearly as nice as yours.

wow i like that a lot. there has been a lil part of me that has always wanted an mr2. i think they are sooooo cool looking. but then i think about the engine bay and how cramped it is back there and how much of a PIA it would be. i still love em though. very clean car you have there, looks great

How is that TMIC working for you. do you have to spary it all the time to keep it cool, cause it dosen't look like you cut away any part of the trunk. Pimp ride though. very clean. get some Dr when you take it to the track.

thanks for all the compliments guys!

Since I bought the car from Charles, the car has undergone an entire new face lift. So many little things were wrong w/ the car. I pretty much had to fix all of them for me to be happy about the car. He also did put a lot of time and money into the car as well though. All the denoted mods with (NEW), I put after I bought it and also a couple other things.

He did buy a 96' GTR tommykaira Skyline. Very nice indeed.

Best #'s acheived by Charles : 266 rwhp & 13.1 1/4 mile

Now : 435 rwhp and should be easily into the 11's.

As for the trunk mount intercooler it is fed via a trunk mounted WRX hood scoop right behind the engine bay.

The driveablity of this car is amazing w/ the Autronics and when you get on it, it goes on forever. It really puts you back in your seat.

Wow, VERY nice numbers coming from your 2. Is that while spraying on the intercooler? If so, for how long? It also looks extremely beautiful. I like the idea you have of putting the WRX scoop in order to feed the intercooler, VERY sweet. I saw pictures of a Yellow WIIDE body 2 in Import Tuner, and thought that was sweet, I see this and realize sometimes the stock body is best :D Congrats on owning such a nice car! :cool:
