Hi there!

I've been the proud owner of my 1994 MR2 Turbo since 2004 when it was a fresh import form Japan. Since then, it's been on many road trips and over the last few years has become more track focussed.

Two years ago I fully rebuilt the engine in my garage with the help of a willing friend; Wossner forged pistons, PEC forged rods, King race bearings, ARP fasteners throughout plus a load of other upgrades to the drivetrain and fuelling. It was at this point I added a LINK G4+ ECU in plug-in form.

At the end of last year I decided to go all-in on the trackday focus and strip the car ready for a full weld-in roll cage, which will again be fabricated between me and my friend! This became my winter project, but life got in the way and so I find myself still deep in that project. Oh and I decided to entirely re-wire the car whilst I was at it!

The help so far from HP has been invaluable, and Zac's new wiring course has become my bible during the wiring phase. I'm learning fast and enjoying my project once again - I can't wait for the advanced course to be released!

Thanks for reading and shout out if you have an MR2 or GT4 - or anything 3SGTE based!!

Love those cars

Great to have you here Mark, I am new myself but good to see another Brit.

Hi Mark,

Welcome to HPA, how have you managed to get a 53 plate on a 94 car?

Well spotted!

DVLA messed up the registration and according to them, if they mess it up it’s ok!

Apparently it happens quite often often on imports.

that's good to know, I've never seen it before. Wouldn't be complaining though
