I used a draper dial gauge and magnetic holder.

I used a couple of screw holes in the head and bolted a bracket to the head. This allowed the magetic holder to grip to the head.

I received this product in the post today, it is made by a company called Liqui Moly in Germany. It is used on new turbos for when they are installed for the first time. There will be no oil circulation around the turbo for the first few seconds of starting the engine which creates wear and heat. This product protects and lubricates the turbos internal components until the oil reaches them.

I purchased it from AET Turbos in the UK for £13.19 delivered.

I like to think that I have a good sense of humour.

I have been doing a few things with the MR2 lately. I had a fuel rail produced to take some top feed Supra (7mgte) 440cc fuel injectors. The idea behind this is to run the engine in on the Toyota ems.

When run in,keep the Supra injectors in situ and add the other four 990cc injectors to the inlet manifold runners.

The Hydra Nemesis ems will activate the larger injectors when the extra power is needed.

This way should help get better fuel economy rather than just using four large injectors.

I kept them well lubed, they are as good as the day they were bored.

Nothing special to see that's why I didn't post any photos.

Having a baby and lack of cash slowed me down.

I bought most of the parts when I was working, so yes I did spend a lot on it.

Only messing dude. If i had started a tread when i first got a mr2 there would have been pics of a parked car for three years then a lazy eye kit fitted and then car moved to a shed for another 2 and a half years before i finall got one on the road this year . A wedding two kids and the construction sector falling apart so i feel your pain. So compared to me you have made huge progress

Hope you get sorted soon very impressive build and we would all lovee to see it up and running.

Thanks for compliments guys.

It's a bit difficult to see, but the metal plate was painted wrinkle red and is actually darker than what is seen in the photo.

The clear cover is held on with anodized gold titanium bolts, so no rusting there.

It is a tight fit in the engine bay, but at least some of you know about the pretty parts now.

I forgot to say that the body has not been touched since the MR2 was taken off the road. It needs T-cutting and a lot of tlc.

So the expanding family slowly drains money, but the MR2 is gradually gaining more attention once again and I managed to buy replacement sills.

I'm dreading what else I might find once I start cutting the old rusty sills away.

Hopefully the old mig welder still works.
