Found a  nice option for replacing those urethane spacers. 1" aluminum spacers by 'QA1'. Got them through Summit racing. I'm going to get the struts assembled in the next week or so. Need ball joints! Get those bits in and I can pop them in the car!

I'm junking my previous MR2, parts will be transferred to this one though. The front and rear motor mounts have urethane inserts, they're moving to the new car. The HKS exhaust will find a new home in the new car. The speedo cable as well. Next few weeks.

And for the new parts! I decided to give these a shot. T3, Techno Toy Tuning camber plates. The plates look pretty good! Then they had an offering of some upper perches that have thrust bearings to reduce the friction when turning. seems like a good concept, let's see how they do.
pic 1 camber plates
pic 2 the upper perches. 1 set has been 'exploded' to show the various parts. the washer closest the perch goes into the perch as a load bearing surface, it's harder than the aluminum. Then the thrust bearing and upper washer.

On with the plans and related parts.
I have my struts out of a previous car. Need to clean them up and do a few little things. The GC springs came with a sleeve that was a tad short, so at the highest setting the car was 2 1/2" lower than stock. Either I need to use a weld on perch or get a longer sleeve. I was using a urethane bushing to gat a bit more height. The bushing did well enough though.
Pic 1 the struts as they are now
pic 2 the sleeves can be about an inch longer
pic 3 the urethane bushing, strut bushing from a VW Cabriolet, 1987.

So far I've replaced the steering column, lower shaft had bad play, and cruise control switch, and the seats. Put my clear front turn lenses. Little car had 2 different keys, so I'm going to put in the matched set from a donor. Next planned project is the suspension. I have urethane bushings, sway bars and struts from a previous car to go in this one. The struts will be my Ground Control/Koni 350lb f, 600lbr spring set with T3 camber plates. Hopefully funds become available soon for a quick steer rack set. Engine feels good, but the trans has a whine in 1st gear and during decel. Time to modify one of the C56s I have in storage.

100lbs boost? Look into diesel tractor pulling. the rigs there use stooped boost levels.

I think the bigger concern would be mixing with water, as the gasoline may try to separate from the mix. The ethanol would mix with the water quite well. As for messing your AFR with the minimal gasoline you'll be injecting? I would think not. Never know 'til you try though.
