Thread: Engine options for the mk3???

  1. #1

    Engine options for the mk3???

    I've been a long time modder of mr2's current mk2 has some serious engine mods around 400hp its a twin entry turbo model.

    So I just bought a mk3 mr-s and want to know what sort of engine mods I can get away with..

    Hoping to learn from all you guys.

    Heres what I want to achieve.

    Redline/limit 9k
    quick sharp accelleration
    with good torque
    not fussed about top speed
    oh and decent mpg when im not thrashing it

    BHP wise anything above 200 would be nice..

    Money around 4k for the build

    So my options are to a. mod the 1.8 vvti? forged internals lower compression and a turbo with charge cooler bigger injectors and a remap?

    mk2 twin entry turbo engine swap? plus mods for over 300-400hp

    v6 or v8 swap?

    OOooh the choices..

    I really want a "revvy" car..

    How does one increase the rev limit? and what judges that limit?

    cubic capacity? ecu?

    any links to relivate posts would be nice..

    btw I have fallen in love with the skyline engines and would cough love that in one of my motors..

    also keen to point out the boot is no use to me and will be fully abused for engine pleasure.

    so room can be used freely.

    We have a couple of v6's on here (have a look in the woodsport projects forum)

    The 3sgte has apparently been done a few times (what I am planning to do)

    PaulM is fitting an audi V8 to his car!

    Also worth having a look on sypderchat and mr2roc for info.

    Which do you think would give me the best results to suit my needs?

    Seeing as I only really want a torquey engine that pulls like shit off a stick and still keep the weight down..

    Does the v6 weigh much more?

    Will that work? Has it been done before? Or was that sarcasm lol

    I was thinking about the s2000 engine but would still look to mod it slightly....
