    Ownership Verified: My MK I MR-2 (AW11). The Night Rider.

    So what's been going on? A lot of trouble shooting.. I'll get to later though. Firstly I installed all the vacuum lines, using thread seal on the barbs to prevent any kind of vacuum leaks: I don't have pics unfortunately but the four ports on the intake runners go directly to the vacuum...

    Haha, I didn't go to all the trouble of this ITB swap to just put on an air box. Open ITBs for me! ECU needs MAP sensor for engine load calculations. No MAF.

    Thanks. Yes four of the barbs go to each one of the four ITBs (vacuum source), one goes to the fuel pressure regulator, one goes to the ECU (in my case the stock MAP sensor which is fitted to JDM 4AGE's). Of course the big one goes to the brake booster vac line. I think my charcoal canister...

    Thanks! Lets see if it will run... Thank you =) Haha, it was probably luck more than anything else. Thanks though. I was more amazed that the holes lined up perfectly, I did mark them out but still, lol.

    So I've been checking most of the junk yards/parts places but no luck. The closest I got was an automatic AW11 but I needed a manual mount =/ I even walked though a mini swamp to get to that AW11: Rather then waiting around for someone to wreck an AW I decided to just buy one from overseas...

    Thanks! Appreciate it. Yeah I really want to get it done soon, it's been too long since I've driven it. Thank you =) A little more progress. One of the more difficult parts of working on the MR-2 is engine removal and installation, due to the engine being in the middle. Apparently it's...

    I think it depends on the car, its age etc. On my E34 it was like impossible to get off without damaging things, on my E36 it was a little easier but still difficult.

    Alright, I'm back. I haven't worked on the car for a few months since uni got crazy busy (was my final year). Anyway here's some recent progress. Note: I got out of the habit of taking a lot of pics etc. so if you feel like some are missing or things aren't shown clearly, that's why. So, I...

    yeah I would agree. It's just that I like the size and feel of this ball shaped one, plus I really wanted a Razo lol. Thanks! I just want to get it done now, I miss not driving it.

    A little update. I installed the rear main seal and timing belt. Cleaning up the mating surfaces: Again I used some gasket paper to make my own gasket: RTV for a better seal: Don't worry I wiped off the excess RTV in the corner: And the new seal finally in: Also have been...

    Good job, looks very nice. I'm surprised seat heaters was an option.

    Ownership Verified: My MK I MR-2 (AW11). The Night Rider.

    Thanks! Appreciate it. I bought the gasket paper from a local auto parts store. They had three thicknesses available and I just bought one slightly thicker then the OEM (due to old OEM one being compressed). It's also available on Ebay if you search "gasket paper". I asked the person at the...

    I took some time to further disassemble the old 4AGE from the MR-2 (overheated engine). I took some photos during the process. The surface rust spots are caused by water in the oil (due to head gasket failure): By the way, the main (easily observable) damage I found from...

    A small update: Despite what I decided on before, I've changed my mind and want to install the face lift tail lights. This means the original lock is no longer usable as it doesn't protrude out enough. Of course you can simply put in a facelift lock but then your original key won't work...

    Thanks, yeah its definitely a nice improvement and pretty easy to do. Thanks! Thank you! Haha, lets hope it actually runs when I get it together. As you might remember from the pics of the engine when I first got it; it was pretty dirty and oily. Its an old engine and chances are the oil...

    I've been disassembling the old engine and cleaning up parts which I will be reusing. Coolant hoses removed: Coolant passages full of shit: Bolts on the front water neck mount were pretty rusty and the top one sheared in half: Autobox removed: Sump removed (will be reused as new...
