    Hi all! I have a 2zz Spyder that needs a headgasket replacement and I intend to go turbo before the summer. Heres my thinking and I would like someone to correct me if I am wrong. Cause the high compression ratio on the 2zz stock is 11.5:1 it cannot take much more than 8psi. So to gain more...

    Hi so I didn’t do enough research I guess. I turbo charge my 03 MR2 and I am running a tune that is a bit rich in boost. And it seems that I had washed the oil lining off my cylinder walls. Now I’m getting a pretty extreme blow by. It has been like this for the past 200 hundred miles or so. I’m...

    Looking to build a track/autocross MR-S 2ZZ swap but can’t decide between doing a 6 speed with no turbo or a 5 speed with a turbo. If I turbo it, I would probably keep it right around 220whp. I can’t afford to do both right now, but maybe down the road. Which option would be the best and why...

    Hello all, Unfortunately last week my turboed spyder of only 3000 miles got rear ended while I was at a stop light. The frame on the passenger side was very slightly folded and so the car was declared totaled... (1 month after painting, putting on a new bumper, and a turbo kit) I've been into...

    I have a boosted 2ZZ, stock internals. My turbo is a T3, A/R 0.60 Compressor, A/R 0.63 turbine, with internal wastegate (yes, I know that the required one is A/R 0.86. I have one, but I need to repair it and in the meantime I have to use this one). I have problems regulating the internal...

    - 2ZZ turbo at 0.5bar (8psi) max. - MWR DW 65c fuel pump (265lph). - 700cc DW Injectors. - AEM EMS-4 (Engine management) Ok. MWR told me that with these specifications, I do not need a fuel return system. But the housing of the fuel pump has a fuel regulator (I guess it is regulated to be used...

    Hi everyone! I picked up a Monkey Wrench Racing Turbo kit but it's for the 2zz engine and I have a 1zz. With that said I'm selling the 2zz turbo exhaust manifold and downpipe as a combo. I was told they were mounted but not used so they're in excellent condition. Would be great if you're...

    Hi. I found this turbo for sale, Garrett T28 (TB2804), which has the following housing measures: Compressor A / R .60 - Turbine A / R .86. It is very similar to the already recommended GT2860 .86, but I could not find the info of the internal measurements of the Compressor/Turbine wheel trim...

    On my previous post, I asked about using a turbo Garrett T28 A/R .64 on my stock 2ZZ. Several people recommended me to use a turbo with A/R .86 turbine (hot side). My question is: Will turbo lag exist if I use a A/R .86 turbo with Journal bearing? Thanks.
