BigMike:
I spent soooo much time reading through this thread I wanted to mirror and share it here. This is the sort of build I want to do to a 1985 MR2 someday. From the frame-up, complete build like this 8)

The goal of this project:









Target weight will be 800 kg (1,764 lbs)

The original thread is over 16 pages long.
I'll cut through all the bullcrap and just post the important stuff :D

First he built a cage




Picked up a real Formula Atlantic engine

Here is the forged crank compared to a small port SC & 20-valve crank



Engine parts



Mocking it up



Staying true to the early Carburated Formula Atlantic specs



The inlet and exhaust cams are both 320 deg with 10.6mm lift TRD #881



He couldn't find an original flywheel, so he had this one custom made



Twin plate Quartermaster 71/4 inch clutch

BigMike:
Here it is built





BigMike:
Everything he bought was straight out of the TRD N2 Manual

TRD Shocks







Complete with Tein strut tops



Front Caster Rods



TRD Sway Bars



BigMike:
Brand new TRD 5.3:1 R&P



The real N2 cars ran Diff coolers. Here is his setup for this
