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.

Cadwell Park Track Day 31/07/10 - On-board Toyota MR2 Mk1 Race Car
My final run on this track day at Cadwell Park on 31/07/10 in a Toyota MR2 Mk1 race car which was pretty busy as it was getting towards the end of the day. The laps were actually fairly scruffy - running wide a few times and locking up into the hairpin, much to the amusement of my passenger, Ian :) My previous run mid afternoon was much neater but I only remembered to mount the camera at the end of the day!
