Yes seen a few videos, I'm not expecting NA responsiveness. just a nice trade
off, of Acceleration and Power. Looking into getting this started around mid
April.

I have some other Aesthetic plans this year also. But that will depend on the
level I spend finishing the engine lol ! [Rolling Eyes]


Never ending project, i know all too well [Very Happy] Will be following, i'd look into water injection too since we can't get E85 so easily here

So a little update on some things that I wanted to get sorted, I have a
whiteboard in the garage that has "small" and "large" jobs to do on the car.
A couple of which were to paint the space saver as I was sick and tired of
that 24 year old faded yellow. Another was to sand, prepare and treat some
very light surface rust on the slam panel. Along with the final and more tricky
job of creating make shift covers for the suspension top mounts.

The problem with the coilovers is that they allow dirt and water through the top
and gets the Frunk dirty inside. which also leads to slight corrosion on the body
and components over time.

My dad gave me a sheet of thick foam that I measured out the internal
diameter of the hole being 65mm. Then did my best job with a knife to cut it
out and make another incision for the dampening knob. This works quite well
to be honest, but will be a template for a metal cap I will have made.





As you can see there is some light surface rust around the mounting holes
that I will deal with.

I started on the slam panel, by sanding back with A80 and then applying
Kurust.




I have left to dry and will treat the suspension mounts in the same fashion
then will find paint to cover and try and match the OEM grey of the frunk.
or section those parts out with masking tape and use black paint.

Onto the main job, which I actually did prior to the above, but hey.
removed the space saver and got to sanding.




After an hour or so, It was ready to clean off. Used my recently given generator
and air line to clean, then with the help of the misses, masked up the wheel
for its first coat of primer.




I applied 3 coats of primer over a few hour period.
then got to the first coat of the SMG rattle can paint that I bought from Ebay.
To be honest its a really close match so very happy.



However as you can see made the mistake of knocking the can on the wheel
whilst spraying [d'oh!] So left the wheel to dry over night and then sanded the
mark out and recovered with SMG on the latter coats of paint.




Cant see a thing ! [Very Happy] But not content with making one mistake, in haste
sprayed to much lacquer on the second coat and had some pretty nasty runs.
[Applause]

So just waited for it to dry and went through the same process I did with the
mark as above. And again very happy with the result. At the end of the day.
This isn't supposed to be impeccable, just to tidy up the Frunk.

But here is the final effort. [Cool]



Whilst I was at it, I used "Black to the future" trim and tyre shine on the
Frunk shroud. And applied a YVS sticker.



I will get a few snaps of it all back together on the weekend.

So instead of just putting the car back together, I decided that with the success
of the spare wheel I would paint the strut braces. Along with tackling two
problem area's for corrosion, mostly caused by the strut tower openings.




I started by sanding back the corrosion and then applying KuRust directly on
top of it, then sanded back smooth and started masking up the area's for paint.




I decided to paint the first coats of paint with Hammerite with a brush, this way
could get thick coats down. However I should have just masked up the whole
bay and sprayed straight off as I ended up having to do this anyway !




Brush marks ! wasn't having any of that and didn't expect to get it, but sanded
the paint back to a smooth finish and then began the process of masking up
the Frunk properly for coats with a can.



Few coats down, Slam panel looked great however there must have been some
residual silicone in the strut tower recesses and the paint reacted. So I had to
leave it to dry and sand back the following day and re-apply more coats. [d'oh!]




But after many coats of black and then around 4 coats of lacquer to give it a
nice finish both area's were dry and ready to remove the masking.




The foam inserts I had created actually worked amazing for stopping any paint
getting onto the coilover top mounts, but I had something that I discovered
would work perfectly ready to replace.



65mm wire tidy desk cups [Laughing]
They fit perfectly in the recess and look OEM even having the hole in the exact
position the dampening adjuster sits !!



During the drying time between coats, I was prepping the strut braces. The
OEM Toyota brace was easy as was only painted black. Whereas the TOM's
braces were powder coated. Making them a nightmare to sand back.





The DA on compressor I have definitely helped, even if it only gave me 15
seconds on full blast each time [Evil or Very Mad] [Laughing]

I hung them in the garage and began painting.





Yet stupidly decided to use a filler primer to fill any imperfections after using
standard primer, and had a massive reaction over the TOM's braces FFS.



So whilst I was at work, My mate sanded them back and re-sprayed with
primer for me as I didn't have the time and just wanted to get them back on
the car.



I didn't get any photos of the TOM's braces once I finally finished them,
But did on the OEM toyota one.




Now was time to put them all back together, making sure I torqued back up
as the BGB said.

Well worth all the effort.

Now after lots of small updates on the car, time for probably the biggest and
most expensive thing the cars had done to it. Finally time to finish the engine.
After sorting a decent finance option I took the plunge and bought the following
from Paul @ TCB Parts.

. Garrett G25 660 VBand .72ar
. Tubular manifold YVS hand built ( Vband )
. Fuel Injection Clinic 1000cc Injectors
. Top Feed Fuel Rail ( HKS replica ) 11mm
. 4 x Injector Plug & Play Connectors
. Walbro 450lph fuel pump
. Daeschtwerks fuel pressure regulator 1000
. Go Faster Bits FPR gauge
. Tial V44mm external WG

I also ordered a turbo blanket from Exo Racing, that was recommended to me
from a mate.











So all the parts arrived. As you can see I forgot to take a photo of the fuel rail
but its identical, albeit blue. Whilst I was waiting for the parts to arrive myself
and Simon @ YVS discussed the options of how and what we were planning to
do. One being where we intended to map the car.

I had been in contact with Will at Race Dyno Tuning in Doncaster due to his
speciality in mapping this new generation of Turbo, so will be using his hub
based dyno for the new engine modifications.

Next up was getting the car to Simon, This is where things got frankly
ridiculous. Im not going to retype it on here, but if you want to read a ludicrous
story, Its worthwhile !

https://www.facebook.com/512026100/posts/10157215543651101?sfns=mo

So once the car was finally delivered I could rest easy and started receiving
photos of the work.







Fuel pump swapped over and located in the tank.




Beginning of the manifold being created.




Fuel rail and FRP + gauge fitted along with injectors.
Now the cool stuff. Manifold building !






Simon built up a scrap block so that his fabricator had something to work off.
the above photos show this and that the pipes are just tac' welded in place.
Then it began to take shape.





And the last photos I have received to date.








[Very Happy] [Cool] [Applause]

Cant wait to get her to mapping once finished. Oil and Water lines being
created, along with the custom downpipe and waste gate pipe.

The bay will look great, but not really great until I paint that dam cam cover
and inlet manifold + TB !! [Laughing]

Downpipe created and WG fitted, next up will be creating the new pipe running
from the SMIC intake. The downpipe is only tac'ed in place as the manifold was
but will be properly welded once all angles are done.

Only just found your build thread on here, after getting a couple of pages in I realised it was the MR2 that was on Monky London! Read through it all last night..

Definitely some ups and downs in there!! Good read though.

Lovely MR2, actually really helped me in my choice to finally get one!

I’m watching this build with anticipation now, interesting choice in turbo. Will be cool to see the results of the newer G series turbo. The custom manifold looks Awesome. What sort of spool up / power do you reckon you’ll get?

Hi Bud

Glad you had a good read through, been quite a bit of work putting it all
together, but worth it in the end. Yes but the ups have far outweighed the
downs, Its a great car. And I've definitely learnt lots along the way.

Toby ( Monky London ) and me became mates after the video and will most
definitely be doing another video once this latest round of mods is finished.

TBH when it comes to power and spool etc, I'm just waiting to see really,
I think my biggest limitation will be cooling. So will just have to see how it
pans out.

Keep your eye's on here, not many people on the forums now, which is a
shame. But I'll always upload this page with the cars story. Unless I decide
to one day transfer it onto my own blog style format like "Apex Attack"
but I cant say I have his same interesting content [Laughing]

The info I've seen from a gt4
1bar is @ 3700. Full boost @ 4K 1.8bar 490 bhp.

He has 4k rpm of power band. Vs the old 3076 which was like 2k rpm. The g25 peak power was 7600 rpm

This was the g25 660 .71 ar.

Hoping to start mine this weekend. Maybe we should meet up.for some mapping haha.

Running the bigger ar over yours.

Also the other comments was it's so smooth, no huge kicks like the old set up.
