Toyota MR2 Supercharger


Erm, just stretching ready for a days work...


disconnecting and labelling pipes


jacked up ready to disconnect things from underneath


me probably disconnecting the clutch hydraulics


ready to lower engine


engine is secured, ready to lower


and then lowered onto a trolley


you then need to lift the car up to fit the engine past the suspension


make sure you lift the front of the car BEFORE you lift the rear... ahem!


we need to support the car so we can remove the crane and get the engine out


ok, everything out, hang the car back on the crane and lower back down


Fred and Wilma Flintstone! 2bhp (brake human power!)


ahh! beer and food


cams come out and the head comes off to reveal...


hmm, that's not supposed to look like that is it?


Detonation damage


and more...


the deformed pistons also scored the bores
