Nice post and summary Tony, you've provided rebuttal for a couple of unanswered bits and pulled everything together very clearly and eloquently :clapping: :th:

Re: Can I turbo my na Mr2 it's an sw20

Perhaps the MR2 community realise that there is no point in re-inventing the wheel, Mr T already did the turbo conversion. It's a lot easier, more reliable and probably cheaper to either fit a 3S-GTE, do a V6 conversion or buy a Turbo car than it is to turbo a N/A, no one is saying it can't be done,...

I think your losing sight of the fact that the OP lives in the UK, the legislative problems you encounter where you live, with Turbo or V6 swaps are not relevant to him ;)
am i?
Yes
Edit
AFAIK e85 isn't widely (if at all) available in the UK

Re: HI FRIENDS

I’m not a Facebook user so is that me out then? Absolutely not !! Plenty peeps here don't use (or like ) facebook, I for one don't. As for traffic, as Jim says we are not as busy as we used to be (to be fair none of the MR2 forums are) However, Google Analytics says we had 387 unique users in the l...

Re: Car not starting, Possible Fuel ECU fault.

These motors are are pretty basic, it's not unusual to see a slight offset as in your pic and it won't affect the motors operation. In my (somewhat limited :rofl: ) experience the uneven brush wear is caused by the brush sticking, not the other way around. It doesn't take much to get a brush to stic...

Re: HI FRIENDS

That plate must be blocking 80% of the airflow to the radiator. Maybe not an issue this time of year, but something to think about. Personally I wouldn't worry about it, on a standard car the cooling system (in good condition) is easily capable of keeping it cool, mine has the plate in the same pla...

Re: Car not starting, Possible Fuel ECU fault.

Siezed fuel pump is not as unlikely (or uncommon) as you think. I know of several MK1's and 2's that have suffered from this. To update this thread in case others with the same problem find their way here. I replaced the fuel pump and also reconditioned the fuel level sender, put everything back tog...
