My Blue Toyota MR2 Turbo – Modifications & Upgrades

2blu2rbo2 right

My blue Toyota MR2 Turbo (2blu2rbo2) had a lot of modifications and upgrades. Many of the major and costly work were done by the previous owner, such as the paint, bodywork and turbo upgrade. As a poor college student at the time, I was only able to do the less costly ones. The list below came from my log from about 10 years ago. I’m so glad I kept it. It feels good to look back at each upgrade and reminisce the time and effort spent working on them.
