Now we have twin cars (my steering wheel cap is different, though, it says Midship Runabout around it). I have been asked many times if this is the "MR2 Special Edition" because of the MK I logo. I also have it etched on the door sills and on the rear wind deflector.I changed out the photo of my wheel caps for a better one that shows how nice it looks, IMHO.
Since you're that far, turn the inside Lotus-ish. I've been thinking about doing that.Took out the seats to clean beneath them. Found wires for heated seats. Tracked cables to find out why the heated seats don't heat.
This is where it ended.
btw, found where the cables were unconnected.
Put the naughty parts on. Gutted header+new PPE cat+used TM stainless single = loud! The empty cat chambers make for "interesting" gurgling resonance at idle...didn't like it. Also, the TM tip rested against the bumper and left a scorch mark. So I swapped the gutted cat for an Ebay header - still loud but toned down. I also swapped the stock passenger side muffler hanger for an aftermarket one to give the bumper another 1" of clearance. I have an awkward whistle/buzz too. The buzz remained after I swapped the header and readjusted the muffler-to-cat bolts and angle. I got the TM used and after I got home and started to polish it I noticed the tip wasn't welded very straight onto the pipe. It's at a bit of an upward angle....so the pipe inside the tip (a pipe within a pipe, essentially) actually makes a little lip where it ends and the tip continues. I'm wondering if that's the source of the buzz.Passed smog. Now I get to take the nanny parts back off, and put the naughty parts back on.
