Oh ya, sorry about that toby, i ended up getting it sorted out from a guy on SupraForums that helped me out with it. Its all done and good to go now. I just need some 7/8"s PCV hose and a new Turbo IC Hose now, then bolt on a couple more pieces and i can try firing her up! I cant make it out to Coast Industrial until my day off on Wednesday though Never thought PCV hose would be so hard to find, i guess cause 7/8"s is so big. Oh well, hopefully they have some there.

Do you guys know where the best place to buy Momo Shiftknobs from? Either in person or online... doesnt really matter. The Momo website you cant buy direct?

Who would be the best place online to buy them from. Because the Momo website doesnt seem to have a place on their site to direct purchase, it just says see our dealers. Otherwise im gonna have to go to one of the ricer shops in vic.

Hey, are any of you guys planning on going to the Western Canada meet in August?? Just wondering, because I'd like to go but I'm not sure yet.
I already need to take time off next month to go to Merritt, so I dunno what I am going to do - maybe quit work a week early so I can go to the meet as well? It would be fun to cruise over there with a bunch/few people and maybe split the bill on a few hotel rooms or something. Thought I'd ask so I can try to work things out ahead of time Sounds like it will be a fun time though!!

I thought the idle self adjusts? I tried to bump it up before, using the nut on the cable... but after running for a while it just came back down to 650.
Ususally you just use the nut though...??

Well i got her to fire... didnt actually run but its only a matter of time now. I should have it running by tomorrow night. I have to work all day but i will be going down to work on it after i get home from work. CPS and everything is still loose and the cylinders still have alot of oil in them so its going to take awhile to get it cleared up. But i will time it tomorrow with a light and get everything going good hopefully. I will keep you guys posted! Wish me luck!

Wow, I just got to take an '02 MR2 Spyder for a cruise last night... impressive!!
I knew it was nice, but had no idea just how FUN they are to drive!!!!!! The paddle shifter feels a bit weird, sort of tries to simulate the manual shifting feel so it's not so smooth. But god, it's like the thing is on rails... feels like a go kart. And awesome pickup, only 135 hp but I had er up to 110mph in no time at all.
Just thought I would share, awesome little whip (at least it's a toyota!)

i cant get past their looks, but good to hear they drive nice. for a roadster id have to choose a new miata or try out the new Pontiac Solctice...

Bob, good luck getting it running, LMK if you need any help/parts/etc. have you done anything with that lower hardpipe?

murray - i was talking to bob about IC pipes, you might want him to make you some. his shop uses a push bender, and lookin at his exhuast, i think it does a decent job. not as good as mandrel, but a LOT cheaper
