First are there any shops in the MD, PA, VA, area that could do the swap to a 91 n/a, and what could I expect on pricing. Second about how much hp is needed to make a mid 12 second pass with good driving.... would 300rwhp be enough... thanks Im kinda new to the MR2 (been stuck on the honda wagon) but I got a good deal on one so I thought I would give it a try. Also wondering if it would be easier to put a turbo in the existing motor... Final ? (for now) what are some good www's with good aftermarket support.


I also have a 00 superchargerd solara for sale name your price

Try -or- (same place) .... I believe they are in PA. Good MR2 sites..... , , , , , .....

Thats all i can think of off of the top of my head.... :p:
thanks guys, any suggestions about the swap and pricing
I would highly suggest that you go with a JDM 3rd gen 3SGTE:thumbup: Somewhere around 240-250HP stock at the crank. More or less your looking at around $2,000 for the motor, tranny, ecu, etc.

Installation will probably run you another $2,000 depending on what shop you take it to(unless you plan on doing it yourself) But you should highly research any shop and make sure they have a good reputation before you let them touch your car
Mr2warehouse probably has the best reputation for your area. I believe j&h is from PA... so he might be able to suggest some other places. $2k for a 3rd gen seems a little low... I paid that for my 2nd gen.... and $800 for the swap.

I just pulled up MR2Warehouse's prices.... looks more like what I paid. I paid a little less for the clip.... but I didn't get LSD.

2nd Gen. - $2,400 + $800 installation.
3rd Gen. - $3,500 + $800 installation.

I know a lot of people order clutches through them because they give a pretty good price. And I've talked to a couple of people that have had swaps done there.... both happy.

Another thing you might want to consider is the availability of parts. If you end up getting a 3rd gen motor... you are going to have a pretty difficult time getting a hold of parts. With a gen2... parts are usually just a phone call away.

thanks again, is there a big difference in the 2nd and 3rd generation.... also where can I get the flush mount headlights
If you are going to mod... I dont think the difference between the 2nd and 3rd gen will be much different.

Flush mount headlights....
thanks, yeah Ive seen those they kinda look like shiz, ive seen some on the GTP website they look pretty sick but cant find them anywhere sell some good engines that look near brand new, but they have to be shipped. I prefer finding a shop.
