The inlet I'm looking at is a side feed for a Gen 2. I have a pic of the bolt pattern and they look identical. It has the TVIS plate in place. I'll try post a pic later to make sure it's the right manifold but I'm near certain it's correct.

Chargecooler looks sweet, I was looking at similar ones though they were seriously pricey on the site I was looking.
Do you know where your going to attach it yet?
Have you thought out a layout in your head for your full set up or are you waiting til you get all your parts then deciding on where things should go?

Re: Rebuild options for 400hp engine 5 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 59
I have a rough idea of how I want it laid out. If this chargecooler turns out to be massive then I may need to go boot mount but hopefully I can fit it in the engine bay. I'll be moving the fuse box to the boot to free up some space for it anyway.

I still dont know what turbo kit I'm going for though. Any suggestions or advise from the choices I've got?

I saw a low mileage ATS 3082 kit for sale on MR2oc.com. Pretty sure the username was SonicBoom from memory if you want to search it.

Do you want:
* Rapid bottom end
* Great mid range
* Amazing top end

?

I don't think it's possible to get all three without compound turbo/supercharger and maybe nitrous thrown in on top

Notice that kit. I'm thinking it may be a bit overkill for my needs. I'm not going to start chasing numbers as I'll bankrupt myself haha! I think a 3076 or 3071 would be a good choice. I'm waiting to hear back about the kit over on IMOC as I may just bite the bullet with that one. Has what I need and future proof with the manifold.

All going well I should be getting the GT3082 kit from sonicboom in the States!

Also, bought a 3SGE inlet manifold along with top feed fuel rail.


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

It will need a bit of work but it's cheaper than an RMR, etc.

Re: Rebuild options for 400hp engine 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 59
The main advantage I'm interested in is the fact the flow to each cylinder is more even with a side feed manifold than with the center feed manifolds we have standard. The center 2 cylinders are known to cause problems when using standard manifold when going for big power.

I'm doing this as much for cost saving as being different really. Haven't seen too many of these manifolds on MR2's in UK or Ireland.

Anyone have any input on the 3SGE manifold idea? Or any ideas at all haha! I'm just looking for some more suggestions/advise on where to go next. Bear in mind I'm not chasing numbers. I just want the best I can get for the money at my disposal. Weekend toy car with some drag racing...maybe!

Re: Rebuild options for 400hp engine 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 133
Porting has probably entered your mind and it did mine for my build. I don't know much about the 3SGE manifold that you have, but porting the intake will not be necessary on the 3SGTE. You can actually loose power if the intake is badly ported. So my advice is don't do it. I know that you did not specifically ask that question, but I thought that I would let you know.

I read some inlet manifold threads on mr2oc.com and they said that you need to have a big plenum volume. Do you know if the plenum is bigger on that than the standard 3sgte? if not you may loose power.

Re: Rebuild options for 400hp engine 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 59
Thought I answered already Geoff but the plenum on this is slightly bigger than the standard Rev2 3SGTE inlet from what I've read. Not 100% sure yet. I might try modifying it but not sure yet.

Anyway, the chargecooler bits arrived today!


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

There's a few dings on the actual core itself but it's only cosmetic. I dont really mind considering the price I paid.


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

The core is HUGE!


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

I'm going to see where I can fit the thing tomorrow. I'm hoping it will fit over by the intake but I'll find out tomorrow for sure.

Got my Link G3 ECU and 1ZZ COP's the other day as well. I'll throw up some pics when I unbox it. Should be paying for the turbo kit this week as well so I should be on the road by the time the good weather comes around next year!

Legend! good work Dan and here's a karma click for some good luck too!

BTW when I was talking about size of the plenum I meant air volume that it can hold not the size of the inlet. I don't know much about it but I know a lot of guys on mr20c.com were very particular about having some huge plenums.

Re: Rebuild options for 400hp engine 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 59
Yea from what I've read it does have slightly larger volume. The main reason I bought it was the better distribution of air to all 4 cylinders.

Here's a quote from an engine mapper who worked on an MR2 with this manifold.

My opinion on this manifold so far is that it is not a complete replacement for a good aftermarket intake manifold, but it is probably a good poor-man's setup for those wanting more even air distribution across all four runners.

I'm looking forward to getting stuck into this when the rest of the parts arrive.

Re: Rebuild options for 400hp engine 5 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 59
Bought an MR2Eddy triple gauge pod from a member over on IMOC. Haven't got it yet but he's posted it out. These are hard to come by and it's something I've always wanted in the car. So I'm a happy camper! Not sure what direction to go for my center console now considering it has 3 gauge holes where the heater vents should be haha! Think I might have to buy a new one and try something else with the current one. Any ideas?

:woohoo:

Things are stacking up nicely now. I have, however, hit a speed bump with my manifold. I bought it from a guy in Oz from eBay and I haven't heard anything from him in a while. So I decided to go on to check his account only to find that he's no longer a registered seller :unsure:

I tried to get in touch with PayPal who were no help whatsoever. I'm going to have to ring MasterCard to get a refund but I'm not even sure that is possible. Feel completely ripped off as the money would come in very handy to get things sorted. :angry:

Thats looks a nice piece of kit Dan!
Thats seriously shit about that guy from ebay clearing off, you should maybe sign up to the Australian MR2 website and post up to see if anyone on there knows who the seller is, might be some way of getting in contact with them to try and get your money back?!
I know its unlikely but worth a shot atleast then you can say you tried!

I bought the part now about 2 months ago so its outside the 45 day PayPal dispute period. I dont think it would help either that he's no longer registered. I might try and check out the Australian MR2 boards and see what information I can get.

You can get your credit card company to refund you. You can make a claim up to six months after payment, but the sooner you let them know, the better your chances of a refund being successful.

Make notes of when the payment was made,who to and why eBay will not refund you.
