My buddy Nick has had a wide variety of MR2's over the years and those of you that know him may know him from that but he's been out of the game for awhile as he went back to school to get his masters.

Well while in town over the Christmas break he found a car online and made an offer and the owner accepted. He flew to Austin and drove it back without a problem.

It's got a 94 Escort GT motor with a t25 turbo using a Miata manifold tuned on megasquirt powering the MKIII Supra injectors. It also has a Mercury Capri trans, Aspire brakes, and Aspire struts and custom Civic adapted coilovers.

It was built for the 2010 Grassroots Motorsports challenge and did pretty well and now it's Nicks.

Shitty video. My point and shoot didn't want to focus because it's so bouncy and it wasn't getting traction with half bald azenis.

Fixt!

:mrgreen:

That thing is pretty damn rad. It would be funny as hell to hurt some feelings in a Festiva.

The seat was terrible...thankfully Kyle gave me a pillow right before I left, so my ass was mostly saved.

And yes, it is a stock srt i/c.

The p/o threw in some black aerospeed seats, so maybe ill throw those in when I'm back in town...in six months...haha.

Nice purchase. I loved your MR2, I'm sure this will keep the same quality and attention. Congrats!

Selling now if anyone is interested. I lost the spot for it in my parents garage (bought another vette) and I live in Boston now. It is currently parked inside a garage at KC_Si's place. If anyone is interested send me or him a PM.

What kind of numbers did it put down, either at the track or on a dyno?

It's listed in the FS section now. Put out around 200whp at 8-10psi, could go more safely, but traction is obviously an issue.

Selling for 2200, or possibly trade for something stockish and practical, ie subaru, 90+ integra...something clean and mostly stock :).

Haha, indeed Chuong!

My Festiva made 230 to the tire and went 12.7 @ 110
