Shane's Red Rev 3 TTop 2jz vvti 6 speed manual

Post by shane34 »

So im back.

Been looking around for months for a project car, was tempted to go RX7 but the 10k outlay with bodywork required seems expensive.

So ive picked up a rev 3 NA Auto,
Looking at its mot history it has been well kept, something went on in 2006 probably when it was imported? Mileage was reset.

So the car is pristine, underside look amazing considering its age, no wax oil or any other protection has been applied. The bodywork had a full respray last year. Again this is extremely good.


Plans.

Straight line monster! And to look great!

I have a plan to remove everything from the car thats not required, this will no doubt be a year or 2 build, however its going to be enjoyable as its my 1st opportunity to create my own version rather than adding or adapting from previous set ups.

Engine wise will be decided, i have a plan but cannot say yet.
Gear box etc will follow on from engine. But i like displacement so no k swaps or 5sgte.



Currently have acquired wheels.
BBSlm 9inch fronts 10 rears.

Items required

Race fuel tank with bladder



Stage one.
Set up work shop
Remove everything from car and plan engine.

So ive updated the title as its fairly official now.

Ive not released any videos and only a couple of pictures as teasers.

Im planing on making the 2jz run about 700 or 800 whp.

Will end up mainly a straight line car, however looking at a 50/50 weight distribution on the mr2.

Engine and gearbox are mounted. Currently fabrication on exhaust, front mount intercooler, pipework, got part due by the end of the week.

Once i work out how to upload pictures again on here ill add some

Still ongoing. Back to work so the last few months have been slow.

Upgraded Gearbox is here, clutch still on order.
Fuel cell in the making.

Still a long way to go probably next summer at the way work is.

Ill try to update some pictures but dont really enjoy trying to upload pictures here

Uploading photos is a chore for sure. 100% for it for us to be able to see photos though :mrgreen:
