BORDER RACING Toyota MR2 SW20 reference thread 7 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 312
I was recently browsing through the BORDER RACING website looking for a bumper, and I came across a veritable treasure trove of SW20 MR2 upgrades The best part about it is that Border are still making and selling SW20 upgrades, so you if you can't find what you want second hand then it is possible to order it through Nengun, MadPSI or direct from Border Japan.

Border make a whole load of stuff for many different Japanese marques, that combined with the site being written in Japanese makes it a little tricky to navigate so I thought I would put together this reference thread to:

A - make it easier to find stuff
B - inspire some creative ideas amongst our own community
c - have a bit of craic talking about the cool JDM stuff

The english translation has been done courtesy of Google Translate, so you get a rough idea of what they are talking about, however some of the translation has been skewed due to the difficulty at hand of some probably very specific 'JDM racing words'

So without further a due, I give you the BORDER RACING Toyota MR2 SW20 reference thread, let the drooling begin....

Turbo replacement Gt2835
These max out at about 400hp, not bad for a basic 'replacement' eh?

High Performance GT3037 Kit
When that basic replacement is not quite enough, then drop in the 3037 and shoot for 500!

Seems that even though Border don't make it, they will sell it to be a 'one stop shop'

The intercooler looks badboy. Try and find out the stats, don't thinknill be that effective, would it not get really hot being intop of the engine?

I tried to order the 2.2 stroker kit made by HKS from a retailer in Japan. I was told that it had been discontinued, so I went for the 2.2 JUN stroker kit instead.

I think it would heatsoak pretty bad at idle, but who knows? maybe there is a high pressure area above the engine lid and it just sucks the air straight up. Not too sure, it does look pretty impressive though. I've also seen some hardcore charge coolers plumbed in to that location so maybe there is something to it...

They have things there that were made by Apexi and HKS, that may or may not be available but I think the Border home brew stuff is. I emailed a guy I know in Japan who is mad in to SW20 and he said he thinks it's all still available. He's also exhibiting at Tokyo Auto Salon so I guess he would know
