New to the forum 6 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 4
Well lads and lassies, obviously as above I'm new to the site
Cozzy90 wouldn't stop pestering me to join so I said to quieten him I would haha
The MR. 2 I currently have is already well known on here, looking at some of the great and also some of the very nasty abusive comments maybe 50% of you like the idea and 50% of you simply don't! I personally love the car as I like 'different'.
Firstly I just want to say it's an absolute credit to Mjmitch on here, the extent of the work is simply frightening!
Even for those who think it's 'wrong' can surely still appreciate the quality,time,money and of course the blood sweat and tears that was put in.

Anyway enough talk from me, my name is mike i'm a toyota technician and of course the car I drive is a D4D MR2.

Looking forward to getting to know you all and maybe put faces to a few names at upcoming meets and events
Feel free to ask me for anything, ill contribute with helping others as much as possible

Welcome to the site and you have what is probably one of the most unique MR2's in the world. Right up there with the KickNgas electric MR2 from the states. Knowing what MJmitch put into the car it is a cracking purchase.

Well wear and would love to see the finished article

Re: New to the forum 6 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 88
I wont pretend to like the idea of a mid engined rear wheel drive two seater diesel sports car .. I just think its wrong ... but I will say it is a masterpiece of engineering and a credit to the man who built it ... and I did secretly think about buying it .. It caused a moral dilemma which was solved by poverty ...

I love the idea of having something original and that is original .. not everyone likes my car either ..

I wont say I hope you get years of happy motoring from it because thats just plane stupid ... It will go forever ... there is no way to kill a diesel toyota engine even with a shotgun ...

Either way welcome to the site ... There are some great guys on here and always willing to help wherever they can .. our opinions may differ but we all want to see MR2's stay on the tarmac ..

Was seriously considering buying that car when it went up for sale.
The build thread for it is up here somewhere. Super slick project
best of luck with it.

Welcome to MR2.ie : )

I think the idea of a Diesel is great. After all, diesel won Le Mans a few years back


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

The world wouldn't be fun if we all thoguht the same - fair play to you for thinking a bit different and enjoy the many years you will enjoy your two. You'll have it for years longer than the petrol heads who modified their 2's

And just looking - rechipping the D4D (£99) can get it up to 217 ft lb. That's just as much as a turbo ! I know the power figure will still be less but having that much torque and probably in a much more usable powerband means you can have a lot of usable (and legal) fun. So, you won't have the top-end/top speed (not a problem unless you do regular 1/4 miles) but up to 70/80/90 mph maybe, you will be as fast as petrol heads.

I'm loving the idea :)

Enjoy : )
