it really depends on a couple things. Here are a couple questions you should ask yourself

1. What is your price range?
2. Which style mr2 do you prefer (MKI, MKII)?
3. Is this just for a nice DD or are you looking for performance?

91-92 turbos would be cheapest......93 would be a better pick b/c they come with bigger stock rims/brakes..different suspension....94-95 turbos would be best but hardest to find....

Ok for that price you could either get a really nice 91-92 with low miles or you should be able to find a decent 93 for that price. I always like finding one with not to many mods so i can do it up the way i like. But thats really up to you. And if you want a fast one then get a turbo model. Dont waste your money on a NA because youll regret it later on when you want a little extra power and cant really get it out of the NA. There are plenty of place to find them for sale.

Autotrader is obviosly the best place to start. After that you could look into MR2trader. But ussually there its hard to find local. Then of course there is the MR2OC which there are always people there with FS ads. Just do your research on the car and make sure to look it over well before you buy.

well other than having to search for a mechanic its pretty ... not simple, but less complicated. oh i also heard about the wiring being difficult to work with and figure out

^^save what u can..go for a turbo in the first place....doing the swap is time consuming and costs more than you think......

they are very right about the unexpected cost... i went to JOTECH yesterday an they told me that just labor to get a 3sge swaped into an N/A would be between 2000 to 2500, so i made my decition and i am going to look for a turbo model as well
