Tyla's Toyota mr2 aw11 3sgte

Recommended Posts

Impressed that it manages to fit in without chopping holes. For some reason I always thought they needed clearance around the front but I might be confused with the Toyota V6 swap.

Barry Dowler is nice to deal with eh. Pretty chilled. He, probably like most certifiers, doesnt like peaked cap, tall black sock and jandal wearing Redbull drinking yoof telling him he is wrong and they are right.

So glad you've kept this looking stock. You'll have some fun surprising folk!  Just dont end up backwards in a hedge- like I did many times in my Aw11 when I ran out of talent :-)

I know a few people that have done this swap- with great results. I bet its GREAT to drive. A few relatively simple additions and you could have a 12 second car pretty quickly

The engines run by a link g1 ecu and has made good power when it used to be in a sw20, but I've been having trouble getting it to make full boost, I've only been able to get 12-14psi out of it which is still alot of fun

Good torque too- in a lightweight car.  It ramps up on the torque really quickly from 3000 to 4000. Right in the rev range you'd be at when cruising along in 5th. It must be awesome at easily passing cars without breaking a sweat!

The torque is awesome, 5th gear when overtaking is normally more than enough, very different to the 4age 20v which was in it, though the 20v was alot of fun aswell

The secret to going fast (if i remember correctly) is a steel wheel ct20b. That + downpipe and boost controller was enough to get my old flatmate (alsw20) doing 12.7 down the quarter and 4.2 seconds to 100 (again, from memory) in a full weight sw20. I got to drive that particular car on the street and it was just awesome... 

You could be boost limited by the little turbo thats on there..they are pretty average.

It has a ct20b and 3inch downpipe but the exhaust is crap after that, I drove it around open downpipe not too long ago and got it to flow 18psi which was awesome but it was still acting a bit weird and not hitting its boost target until 6k+ rpm, I think the main thing for me to do now is put a proper exhaust on it and then see how it runs

Also electronic boost controller, I tried a manual boost controller but it was just the same so I don't think it's the boost controller

The way it's staircasing the boost plot I would suggest the ecu is pulling ignition timing based on more load in the taller gear.

thanks i'll try and see if i can log the ignition advance, i'll also check that the ignition timing is synced for the ecu.

i'll let you know how i get on cheers

I saw you hooning through Nelson in this I think two Fridays ago? Looks good. So small against all the bland blob cars around it.
