Toyota MR2 AW11 4AGTE - 2012 ARC Rally Calder Forum Battle
In-car footage of my run at the inaugural ARC Forum Battle event at Calder park. 3rd March 2012.
First 3 runs are from the one-lap dash event, and all the runs after that are from the gymkhana.
Very wet conditions to say the least!
Hankook RS3 225/45R15
gambled on a dry-weather alignment setup... lol
MR2 MK1 Touge Run
1985 Mr2 with 1987 Bluetop 4age with T-VIS. Car is in desperate need of new shocks and tires, so when I get those expect a new vid with better times.

Supercharged Toyota MR2 4A-GZE (AW11) - Autotaku
Here we have another one of the great "little" cars from Japan. This is the Toyota MR2 and it is the supercharged variant, too! This car came with the same engine as the original Hachiroku, the 4AG. In later years they added a Supercharger to the MR2 to give it a little bit more power. The car had 145hp stock but of course a nice set of headers and Exhaust would help a little, plus HKS sold a pully that would up the Boost.
Toyota MR2 AW11 4AGTE - 2013 MR2 Trackday Challenge (Wakefield Park)
Travelled interstate for the first ever MR2 Trackday Challenge at Wakefield Park. Most of my laps were messy as I was still learning the track and getting accustomed to a different car setup.
Still, it was great fun and I came 1st in circuit class and 3rd overall.

Toyota MR2 AW11 4AGZE + SC14 Supercharger + 6-Speed
This is a video of my 1987 Toyota MR2 AW11 with a fully rebuilt 4AGZE motor, SC14 Supercharger and C60 6-speed gear box.
Many mods have been done to the car including 164mm crank pulley to spin the SC14 faster, custom W2A Intercooler, KAZZ LSD, brand new Koni's, sway bars and a whole lot more. Oh I should not forget the bloody nice Recaro seats. :P
For those wondering what the pipework is coming off the Intercooler it's a custom air bypass valve system for the Supercharger also know as an ABV, it's been made up from an external turbo wastegate. When the car is in vac the valve on the wastegate will open allowing air to bypass the Supercharger through the thin pipe you can see on the left which pulls air from just under the throttle body and flows directly into the intake manifold, when the Supercharger kicks in the valve in the wastegate will slam shut allowing the SC14 to pull air through it to compress and then passes through the Intercooler and into the intake.
If anyone wants more info on this bypass setup just leave a message. Also full build info along the way can be found in my ride thread on Toymods, below is a link to my thread, note you will need to sign up to be able to view it.

A detailed look at the differences between the TVIS and the small port intake manifolds for the Toyota 4AGE engine. If you liked this, you should take a look at the engine I built later: http://www.marcmedina.com/MR2enginebuild.html
