check all arches,boot ect for rust..noisy alternator or release bearing and clutch..drive it on well.make sure the boost gauge on the dash is working and its boosting well with foot to the mat incase any splutter or anything and watch temp gauge.also run up and down through the gears with high revs for any crunching perticularly 3rd.listen for any knocks or bangs in supsension..make sure you go through it thoroughly as iv heard they can be dodge to deal with but that could be just people talking crap:-)besta look

Re: anybody know this car? 5 Years ago Karma: 1
yeah id love that black one in kildare and its probably worth every cent but 4k for a 20 year old car.... ouch!! the white one in limerick has a slight blow in a turbo gasket, i probably would have taken that one if it needed no work, the only other half decent one is that white one in galway on adverts

you'll find it hard to get one that doesn't need work cheap..that white one might be still worth a look if it's only a slight grind in third.

I am not sure was it first MR2 I have a look before bought mine. That was in garage on the way to Portumna and was covered in grass and in need of cluch. that was one year ago so all those jobs may be already done as they said what wa cheduled. Just.Just remember all cables out didn't look nice.
Good luck anyway.
Would you like to pay for hassle free MR2 or go cheap and spend money on things you care in priorities?
May list of things I would like to upgrade fix make better is increasing and just wait for budget to make them all;)

donedeal doesn't have many offers for MR2s this year. Last year that time I had over 50 to select one very close to me.

Thanks for your input, I think I would like to get a cheap one and make it personal, like doing the gearbox myself and any other bits that may need doing,

Re: anybody know this car? 5 Years ago Karma: 1
Mr2 bought, quite happy with it, might give it a lick of paint in the near future 1 or 2 panels could do with it, the box is crunchy when going from 4th to 3rd at any revs, so that will be coming out and new synchros put in and maybe a new 3rd gear oh and some 2year old must have played with the wiring for the turbo timer that part is a mess but other then all that I love it, its fierce quick compared to the a4 ha, quickquestion though, how far up is the standard boost gauge ment to go? Mine goes up past the + is that normal? The blitz boost gauge is reading 0.8-0.9 bar

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

The + just means that you are in positive boost, it should be like that when you are getting a shove in the back. .9 bar would normally indicate it's running slightly higher boost than the factory setting, it could also indicate that your Blitz boost gauge may be optimistic

If you happen to get along to a dyno they normally have industrial strength/calibrated gauges you could use to double check and verify that the Blitz gauge is accurate. Not knocking Blitz, I have used a bit of their stuff before and they are a high quality brand.
