After years in the making, this Toyota MR2 Spyder was delivered to us for the final touches and tune. The Toyota 1ZZ 4cylinder engine was built, and a billet 58mm Precision Turbo was selected to provide airflow to the motor. An air to water intercooler was fitted along with 4″ exhaust featuring a Burns SS muffler. The fuel system was upgraded to handle E85 ethanol fuel, complete with a flex fuel sensor. A Haltech Platinum Sport 1000 standalone ecu was chosen due to many features including fully integrated on-the-fly flex fuel capability, o2 control and boost control. The end result after dyno tuning was a huge boost in performance: 325 horsepower at the wheels on 93 octane, and 400whp on E85. For reference the stock engine makes 138hp at the crank, or approximately 105whp on our Dyno Dynamics.
