    If you really want one you will probably have to look at the west coast, US or possibly an imported JDM. I would start with the west coast.

    Most of the people that have them are taking them to the grave because the chances of any one building a car like this again in a price range any one can afford are pretty slim.

    looks very clean and in good shape, even the leather seats seem to be in great shape, what can you tell me about the manual boost controller? have you made any adjustments? what is she currently running at?

    What do yout think XylathaneGTR , you gonna jump on it? haha.

    The MBC basically means You turn a knob, and it increases boost, and you look at the boost gauge to see how much you're running. Cheaper than an electronic boost controller
    That ones looking pretty good, i just might have to.

    manual boost controller... i don't feel like spending hundreds of dollars for an electronic one that does the same as what this does for $50 :tongue:

    have it set for around 13-14 psi

    Heres another one I found :
    Hey guys, I am selling my 1991 MR2 turbo I purchased back in aug 03. The car is super red II on black leather, it has t-tops and the 7 speaker premium stereo. In dec 03 the car was stripped and prepped for paint and was then painted 1993 mr2 SUPER red II by my body shop meadowridge collision. I colour matched the side moudlings and 93 lip to match the 93+ style monochrome paintjob. The car runs very smooth, engine is strong and the car pulls VERY hard. Chasis feels very tight and it handles excelently. I upgraded the turbo in aug 04 with a greddy unit (td06) and only 10psi (lowest setting) my car did a 13.8 1/4 mile with a crappy launch of a 2.3 second 60ft ( i have pulled 1.9 sec 60fts in this car). The car has a recent tune up with toyota leads, cap, rotor and sparkplugs. Here is a list of items I have purchased and installed on my car. The car is fast and I estimate has around 260-280hp at 13psi. Also, I have the full service history and maintenance records from toyota. Car has NO accident claims, only one glass claime for a cracked windshield in summer 04.

    Engine
    -----
    ACT stage 2 clutch
    Toyota ring gear/ pilot bearing for clutch install
    HKS HiPer catback exhaust (this exhaust cost me around 1k )
    HKS super mega flow airfilter
    HKS SSQV
    Greddy TD06-SH turbo kit with downpipe $$$!
    Aftermarket downpipe for new turbo
    Spearco water/alcohol injection

    Suspension
    -----
    Tokico 5 way illumas
    Tein stech springs
    Kosei K1 wheels 15x7 13lbs each
    Advan 032r tires

    Electronics
    -----
    Defi BF series boost gauge
    BF controler II
    HKS EVCIV boost controler
    HKS type 01 turbo timer

    Exterior
    -----
    Monochrome paintjob super red II
    99 clear corners
    93 front lip.

    As far as Im concerned all my mods are tastefull and serve a valuable purpase on the car, some maintenance stuff was taken care of by these mods.. clutch shocks etc etc.

    The car is priced 16,000 OBO

    Please email me if you are interested

    Keebler: I had a look at the picture of the 93 Turbo you're selling ... question for you ... did your car happen to originate from BC?

    There used to be a car here in BC that was uniquely the same as yours. Rims, color, and year! There was some intriquing history from Toyota on that particular one!
