Toyota MR2 Takes on the Streets

February 3rd, 2019

Looking like a mini Mad Max creation, this Toyota MR2 is a mid-engine powered nightmare for the competition. A murdered-out paint scheme, ground raking stance, and custom wide-body kit give this ride a most menacing appearance.

Under the hood, a Honda (K20) engine block, with Carillo connecting rods and CP pistons, has been sleeved and outfitted with a built cylinder head and a set of Stage 2 cams. A Precision 6266 turbocharger (and everything that it entails) is the lone power-adder. A PPG Dog Box (manual) transmission handles the shifting duties and a Pro Jay dual-injector (FIC injectors) intake manifold helps distribute massive air to the combustion chambers. Traction is left to 17-inch skinnies in the front with a beefy set of M/T Drag Radials on the rear. The car makes 800+hp on 40 psi of boost.

With the car owner behind the wheel and the interstate (of Mexico) clear, you have the opportunity to slide into the passenger seat for some street hits in this 2,500-pound monster import.
