  1. Questions about the Veilside kit

    Appearance Modifications
    Okay, y'all can chill now. It was funny for a bit, now its a bit much. Fair to say y'all have different opinions on used Porsches and how it stacks up against a modified toyota - all things considered. Y'all are just slinging mud at this point.
  2. Why convert to a 6 speed?

    Performance Modifications
    Im not sure I have! its not really enjoyable at that range (so why go fast if its not that fun). But from what Im sensing, it is to drop the RPMs at higher speeds. as my friend said below, I find that the car is most fun between 3-4.5k RPMs, does that means with a 6 spead ill get similarly...
  3. Why convert to a 6 speed?

    Performance Modifications
    I often hear about people swap their 1zz or 2zz MR2s to a 6 speed transmission. Probably a silly question, but why would one do this? If you were to get a 2zz would you do this. I've only every driven a 5 speed, so I've been like 'wish I had more gears here'. If you were to get a 2zz would you...
  4. Questions about the Veilside kit

    Haha, no problem. It was quite entertaining! I'm certainly not rich, but I do have some expendable income. I've considered used F-Types, Vantages, Caymans (was really close there)(and we are talking 3-8 year old versions with under 45k miles for all these), and while felt I could afford to make...
  5. Questions about the Veilside kit

    Appearance Modifications
    I think one thin Here's the think. Very few cars retain their value. Especially when you get into the realm of street mods, body kits, suspensions, turbos, you never get your money back. You do it because you are an enthusiast. The car is old, but repairs are par the course with old cars. In my...

    Aren't panel gaps the result of an install vs a poor kit? And there are tons of knock off veilside kits out there.
  7. Questions about the Veilside kit

    Appearance Modifications
    Very good points. Perhaps what I want from the spyder it can't do. Before I begin to burn money I'll need to find someone in the DMV area that has already performed the swap/turbo, smooze my way into letting me take their car for a spin and go from there. Word of mouth is a great way to make...
  8. Questions about the Veilside kit

    Appearance Modifications
    I thought about this. Not a pretty car imho (especially prior to 2011), maintenance is also couple steps up. For me, all cars are depreciating assets unless you are buying a real classic. love Mustangs. I feel like if I made these changes it would give me equal happiness to a new GT and...
  9. Questions about the Veilside kit

    Appearance Modifications
    So what's the answer for a satiating driving experience where I'm not yearning for more? 1zz or 2zz turbo..Kseries swap? Perhaps I need to drive the car of someone's who's already swapped it to see what I like. I feel when I'm driving I can crack a grin around when zipping around town at slower...

    I'll look into the thread! Thanks. Why wouldnt you get a 2zz? I got my spyder a year ago and Im coming from a 2006 mustang gt. I feel I need more power. The car needs to be a bit more fun, or I think a newer gt is on the cards.
  11. Questions about the Veilside kit

    Appearance Modifications
    My plan is to pull the trigger on the veilside kit by the end of next year. However, a year after that I plan on on doing a 2zz swap. I have a few questions about the kit. 1. The kit seems to run about 5k, but the exhaust (which at some sites says it's required, and costs 4k). This may be a...

    Parts and miscellaneous for sale
    Ladies and Gents, I just bought my spyder a week ago, and the original owner threw in a bunch of goodies, included the original rims and tires, a luggage rack, and a spare soft top replacement. I'm currentley looking to let go of the luggage rack. $230 + shipping? In the DC/DMV area if you want...
  14. What is the biggest engine swap you've seen in an MR2?

    Performance Modifications
    I'm not asking what is the most practical engine swap you've ever seen, but what was the biggest or craziest? Has anyone ever dropped a V8 into a spyder?

    excellent! thanks for the help. Is something a novice could swap out themselves or do you recommend a shop?

    gutting the cats seems a bit too labor intensive for me. If a reputable guy won't remove them, perhaps people get them swapped out with something more reliable? Does that kind of thing even exist?

    Cars for Sale
    This seems like a great deal. If this car falls through I will jump on it. However, I have a gentleman's agreement with my current guy pending Galo's look. Also, the guy in Florida wants cash only, no way I leave the house with 7k in cash - that is just a bad idea..

    Cars for Sale
    I'm a bit confused now. So are you saying that if the pre-cats are in good condition to leave them on the car? taking them out wouldn't be a smart precautionary measure?

    No i wouldn't say he's familiar with them at all. He's a Jeep guy. It's in indianapolis. The guy says he's up for meeting anywhere in the Indianapolis area. If you are close and offering, I imagine that having you taking a look at it would be a lot more valuable than my buddy. But only if it is...

    I live in DC, the Eastern Market to be exact. And the guy seems opposed to it, even though I'd front the cost. He says he has an offer 250 below mine...it appears his inconvenience isn't worth $250, so i didn't push it.
