3sgte clear cam covers 7 Years ago Karma: 312
A vendor on MR2oc.com has developed clear cam covers for the Rev1/2 3sgte. I believe they might be going to develop a Gen3 one at some stage also.

Here's some pics:

I think there might be a member write up at some stage also as I know one person from MR2.ie (not me) has already ordered one.

Can be ordered here: http://www.zakleecorp.com/3Sgte2.htm

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

I received my clear cam cover today. It was well packaged to reduce the chance of damage in the post. I think it may have took so long because of the volcano ash-cloud. I have yet to assemble my engine so can't show any pictures of it installed.

Cool! it's on my 'want to have' list. Hopefully I can clear off some of my 'need to haves' and promote it.

Have you seen any in car pics floating around?

hmm, maybe need a mirror to see how the intake cam is set though?

I wish someone would make a new plastic piece for the wiring conduit that sits behind the cam cover.... I checked with Toyota and it was 700euro as it's part of the wiring loom and cant be sold separately.

€700 for a wiring loom Maybe you could do a wire tuck and get rid of the conduit altogether. That's what I will be doing. I'm not sure but the wires will probably need extending. Nothing that a soldering-iron can't solve.

Re:3sgte clear cam covers 6 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 312
Yeah pretty expensive stuff. Although recently I found that I've got some strange wiring issue relating to my ISC. There is a black/yellow wire in the engine bay that provides 12v to a lot of the vsv's etc. I've found that mine is 12v with the ISC unplugged and then 7v (or sometimes less) with it plugged in.

My cold start has always been a problem so I am wondering if my ISC is grounding out due to a bad coil or something..

No just won't idle up at cold start. Once it's warm it's fine.

I tested it off the car one time with a 9volt battery and it did move. Could not check resistance at the time as my multimeter had given up the ghost.

No, what i need is a nice set of hks cams and pulleys, then a flashy timing belt, would make it a look better to the eye!

Imagine that and then a couple of strategically placed LED's. Awesome!

Your engine bay looks nice and clean man, fair play.
