  • [Traitor Car] Tomush's Mk2 Rev3 MR2 2.0GT

    Hello there.

    Recently purchases this off Dave on the 27th June 2014.
    If you want to see the previous work he has done over the last 2-3 years check it out here:
    Welcome to TheCorsa.co.uk Forum - TheCorsa.co.uk Forums

    Current mods:

    Mods include:
    - 8k HID Healights
    - Drift Deep Dish Steering Wheel (Black/Brushed Ally)
    - Japspeed De-Cat Stainless System
    - K&N High Flow Cone Filter w/Cold Feed
    - De-Restricted Inlet
    - Uprated gear link bearings
    - Gear link short shifter
    - Uprated Exedy Clutch Kit
    - Uprated Silicone HT Leads
    - Iridium Spark Plugs

    - 2 Brand new Front calipers
    - Full set of Aeroquip braided lines
    - EBC Turbo Drilled/Grooved Front 276mm Discs
    - EBC Greenstuff Front Pads
    - BremBrake caliper slide pins, caliper bolts and grease

    Probably missed a lot out, I'm sure Dave can correct me if anything is wrong. Basically copied it from his project thread.

    Plans?
    - Spray wheels any colour but pink
    - Remove stickers (sorry Dave)
    - fix rear calliper issue, probably buy two new ones.
    - Rear braided brake lines
    - Blue anodised wheel nuts
    - Dark blue callipers?
    - sort out small rusting issue on rear sills
    - Radar detector rear view mirror (someone give me a link to a good one please )
    - Space the wheels out a bit on the standard alloys (for now)
    - one day, set of Rota's, not sure which yet but something cool

    and finally... when the engine decides to die I'll likely drop a turbo lump in it (once my insurance drops as well)


    It's so nice to drive, and the noise is epic. Oh yeah.. here is a video of me driving it!


    Some pictures after I got it, including the most important change of all....

    Currently trying to sort out some track time at various tracks including Brands hatch and Lydden hill so this should be the beginning of a lot of fun!

    Turn's so many heads already :roll eyes: not that it's unnoticeable or anything..

      Yep first job on this list. Getting new tyres fitted tomorrow as well and once they are on I'll spray the rear wheels.

      Next job on the list, sort the rear caliper out before it ruins the discs

          I like the standard wheels tbh. I'd love a set of rota grids though.

                  Sure i posted a comment in here last night but seems to have vanished.
                  Wheels look much better than colour i think and sticker removal will help it look cleaner and less cluttered.
                  Did you prime and lacquer the wheels as well?

                    Literally just sprayed them. Just wanted to get the pink out the way.

                    Will lacquer them today but as I don't have any spare wheels kinda rushed it. And it was raining yesterday sooooo... Either way the finish looks great as it is up close

                      Camber is perfect as you can see but tracking is out so getting that sorted now.
