Put on OEM splash guards.
Have a gap at the top on the driver's side front that I am not happy about, but generally speaking I am pleased with them.

RGM sillguards as soon as it warms up a bit.

Didn't put them on my car because of that gap. It doesn't look good.

I’m not familiar with Neuspeed, but BFI and others settle and and become much more livable after 500-1,000 miles.
Even after just 4 hard drives its already much better. On first start up after install, the whole car was a giant vibrator. Would have been sexual harassment to let a coworker ride with me.

Maybe warm them with a hair drier until it conforms to the body a little better?

Sorry boys, I kinda wanna build these now. Cant wait to do round two next winter (it’s getting a turbo or supercharger).


MR2's are an absolute blast. Here is my old one from 2012. It had a 3VZFE 3.0 V6 swap from the Lexus ES300. I told myself I would build another one someday. I am very intrigued by the Honda K-series swap or the 2GRFE V6 in the Camry and Lotus Evora.

I want a 2nd gen MR2 so bad. I just can't justify owning two cars that wouldn't serve daily driver purposes.

There was a place localish (PrimeMR2 I think?) that is known for their 3SGTE swaps. I always hoped to end up with a clean SW20 with a 4th gen motor and BT. Alas, the GTI will have to servce double duty until I can flip the YJ for a reliable daily.

Put in the DieselGeek short shifter - hate it so far, insanely notchy, I'll give it a few hundred miles as I heard it gets better - this is the new 2021 version. also added 034 shifter bracket bushings. Those were a bitch, I lost one of them to the engine and lost like an hour fishing for it. also put in an IE tip and IE v2 intake. All this with snow on the ground. I miss my condo, having a house with no garage is not pleasant.

It will break in over time. Surprised you didn't clean all that crud from the top of the shifter assembly.

Yeah, good point, I may come back there in spring time to polish it up.

said the same thing to myself when I saw the pic 😂

and yes it will break in, but it will never not be notchy. Give it some time to see if you like it but if it might not be what you're looking for...

Installed two new Indy 500 tires for the front. Sadly, one tire went bad so i bought two. Tossed the bad one and kept the one that had decent tread just incase you never kno. Lasted only 9months :\
