Tom's Racing T020 MR2 Reference Thread 7 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 312

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Unfortunately Tom's is making very few parts for the SW20 MR2 now even though many of their parts have come in to great demand amongst the global community of MR2 enthusiasts. Many of the other Japanese performance parts companies took inspiration from Tom's in developing upgrades for the SW20, such was the success of the Tom's Racing T020 catalog.

Tom's Racing appears to have focused mainly on the 3sge engine, possibly for a naturally aspirated racing series, but also probably because the 3sge had been used in racing development for several years before the 3sgte became popular. The weblink catalog I found does not reference any upgrades for the 3sgte, however there has been Tom's MR2 turbochargers turn up for sale on Ebay, so possibly at one time there were upgrades available. The Tom's ECU is available for N/A and Turbo variants.


Tom's 2.2 Stroker 3sge - full engine! claiming over 200hp in an NA this is one serious 4

cylinder, especially seeing as this was early 90's predating VVTi

Unfortunately, there are few factory pictures of the Tom's body kit remaining. It seems that at present, the rear bumper is the most coveted of all body kit parts, however Tom's had some other interesting additions including the Tail light louvres, Tail light mesh, and Intake Scoop (with accompanying air box). The Internet is rife with manufacturers offering 'replica' style kit pieces, for the serious collector, it is necessary to keep a watchful eye on the 'buy and sell' of MR2 forums and also religously trawl through Yahoo auctions Japan.


Tom's kitted Japanese SW20 (left hand drive?) check the mini mirrors and could use some spacers!

Genuine Tom's bodykit pieces can be identified by logos (sometimes with serial numbers) that are mounted to the inside of the components. Supposedly the Air scoop is an exception to this. There has been some discussion surrounding the possibility that replica's are being made and then logos applied to them. If in doubt, try to see does your logo look old? they stopped making this stuff more than 10 years ago!

What's the story with the rear lights though????

Myself and tricky Ricky saw one of those grille things at JAE and it looks (in my opinion) as bad in real life as the pic makes it look. Shame 'cause the rest of the car looks mint. I wonder how many times it says 'Toms' around the whole car

The Louvre is a traditional Tom's piece from their Rev1/2 days. Personally it doesn't do anything for me but I admire the detail that he's gone to to recreate such an iconic car (IMO).

Wierd ... most, if not everything else, that Toms do for the SW20 looks good. I/we thought this was an eBay type mod if you know what I mean, rather then something from a proper tuning house. Each to their own though. Pic of the JAE one ....


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

I def agree that the standrd of detail and devotion to the Toms brand is amazing.

Skinny (MR2OC mod and registered on here) is currently in Malaysia working. Literally around the corner from his office is a Toms store. I think he is planning to have a chat before returning to England :) There are plenty of people pledging their undying love for him on MR2OC as you might imagine :laugh:



PS: I have just realised (while adding the IMG code) that my pic is of that exact car ..... spooky!!!

Good spot Spanky (KC+1). IMO Tom's kits look better on light coloured cars (or maybe in person). Some of the design ideas are questionable but they're nearly 20 years old! I'm not sure if they continued with the louvres on their Rev3+ cars??

As far as I know, Toms is a racing type tuner so perhaps the rear grille is a functional add on to protect the lights. That said the bumper kind of does that.

Other than the grille I like it a lot and I'm not really one for kits

Absolutely LOVE that grey Toms replica. Really, really classy looking machine. Just so clean and neat. Some effort put in to that.

That first silver one on your last post, interesting combo. Beams engine with a full Toms kit bar the Bomex scoops...looks well though. Recent paint job I reckon.

Its amazing what a search on Google brings you!

Hi peeps, im James... I am the owner of the grey TOM'S T020 above. It took 3 years to get it where it is now.

I must admit that the fella above who put the pictures of my car up and called it a replica kind of broke me a bit. Replica to me is another word for fake. All parts are genuine therefore making it a genuine T020. No proper hardship either way. Its sat on a driveway for the winter as i roll around in 500 worth of diesel car... pure magic lol.

Hey James welcome to the site. There was no slight intended. I had heard that Tom's supplied a certificate when they fitted the parts themselves. Maybe this is true, maybe it's not. Either way no one is arguing the amazing work you've put in to your car.

Thanks for all your kind words people. I get mixed views about the louver, that was the last piece of the puzzle shipped over from caliornia at great cost. I got some real nice pictures of the T020 without the louver. Ill put them up tonight.

Cheers all.

Re:Tom's Racing T020 MR2 Reference Thread 6 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 25
no hes right as long as your using genuine tom's parts then it makes it a Toms t020.

unlike the trd2000gt these were never produced in the tom's factory, they basically did a tuning package and called it a T020. i guess if you want to be picky there was never actually a genuine tom's t020 unless you get the actual one from the tuning catalog because even using every part they had in the T020 line up wouldn't make it the genuine car.

saying that i think as long as you using genuine parts because like him i hate replica stuff your building a true Tom's equiped car. i'm building basically exactly the same car but a rev 3 version in white, but with a few subtle differences, like dep2 pro exhaust instead of the barrell because it wouldn't cope with the power i plan on making. also i'm using 18" gram light 57 wheels to cover the huge disks compaired to the tom's c3 wheels. but like this one all parts are genuine and tom's

i understand your flustation when people say its a replica. like you its taken me about 2 years to find all the parts just need to finish the car. I even bought an mr2 just for the genunie toms rear bumper and sideskirts with fins then sold it on after they'd been removed. lol nuts or what

Wanted to ask, with your sideskirts do you have the authentic rubber door seals provided with the skirts? i found a set and its the only set i've ever seen.

Re:Tom's Racing T020 MR2 Reference Thread 6 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 2
Hi sorry for the late reply. I appreciate your comments that emphasise what my car really is, i cant wait to drive it when the weather is warmer. Answering your question... indeed yes the skirts have the original rubber strip that allows good seating along the door sill. So that will make two of us. I just need to get the grill fitted properly using fabricated brackets etc for when i attend shows next year. I started it the other day to find it hunts on idle and takes ages to balance itself to a steady idle. If i turn the lights on or disconnect the boost pressure vacuum hose from the engine or from a boost gauge it idles just fine... any ideas people?

Thanks in advance... James

ah thats cool. i've got one of the rev 3 rear grills as well but not 100% if i want to fit it or not, profer it without to be honest.

your car still got the afm fitted? if so it just stabalises the idle with a vaccum leak then?

when did it start doing this? has it been sat around a while?

give me an email at sales@tbdevelopments.com and i'll try and talk you through this problem if we can find out what it is
