I guess your only real option short of chopping off your legs is an aftermarket seat setup :)

I think best option is to get aftermarket seat and steering wheel.
Im not really sure about bolting the stock seat to the floor, wont be adjustable and you'll be the only one that could drive it... (Just incase anything happens, you might want another driver, He'd have to be the same size as you basically.) Im guessing anything smaller then stock would be better. Try gettin' an aftermarket seat first, before steering wheel if your tight for cash :x

Ya I have the same problem with a lot of cars as long as they have a sunroof usually my slightly touches the roof and Im 6 3 too

I have a difficult time trying to fit into a 240 as well, I think it is a curse for any tall people who's trying to fit to into small size Jdm sports car. I end up changing the steering wheel for my 240 to get more leg room....I wonder what would Shaq or Yao looks like in a mr2? or even in a miata??

04-13-2005, 09:55 AM
Does the gen 2 have a lot more room?

04-13-2005, 10:04 AM
I think they are about the same...

04-13-2005, 01:07 PM

Was there any difference bet. '86 & 88SC?

There are a tonne of differences between the two cars, but they're still the same basic car.
