By David S. Goodman on February 7, 2010
Format: Paperback
Excellent book with a lot of general information, and choice specific information. The book was obviously written for the average MR2 owner wanting to increase the performance of their MR2, while also learning a lot of new information (I never knew 93 turbo hardtop MR2s were so rare, nor that the best way to differentiate early 4A-GEs is not by the color of the lettering on the valve color, but by the number of ribs on the block.) While the book does focus on the MkII, there is more than enough general MR2 information to make this a worthwhile purchase for anyone interested in MR2s--or sports cars in general--whether you own one or not.

Excellent book to build your car step by step without skipping the basics. I followed this book religiously and definitely applied the knowledge I read and got great results. It has good info about the function of parts and upgrades and covers a lot of areas even the history of the car to tips on buying a used car. Like someone else pointed out it is a shame there's less info about taking the MR2 Spyder since that car has very high potential but I still give it 5 stars because it aims at the majority of MR2 owners which drive SW20s. For those rarer AW11 and ZZW30 who take modifications to the extreme are already far beyond the scope of this book and lucky we have internet forums. Having the book is great for reference tho.

All in all I think this is a fantastic guide for someone relatively new to the scene but intermediates can learn a thing or too.

The book is is well written and has an abundance of photographs. The technical discussions cover broad concepts and generally don't get down to specifics but rather emphasize the many factors involved in tuning a performance vehicle. My only complaint is that the book's focus is on the MkII Turbo at the expense of the MkI. Good book for any MR2 owner to have and a good reference book.

This book has been great for me as a second generation MR2 owner. The book definitely has a focus on the second generation but there is some great information for the other generations as well. In addition to talking about modifications there is some interesting information about the backgrounds of each car. I would highly recommend this book to any MR2 owner interested in modifying, or currently modifying, their MR2.

detailed book mainly for turbo models though. I don't have turbo but it still had good tips on just upgrades in general, I cant upgrade to turbo yet, so I still liked reading up on options for the future.

If you are looking for information about early MR2s, related details about turbo charging and autocrossing, you may find exactly what you want in this book. However, if you want serious information about the later MR2 Spyder there is far less information and fewer pages are devoted to it.

Page 116: "When swapping a new engine into the MR2 Spyder, most folks reach for the 2ZZ-GE from the Celica GT-S, the powerplant many owners felt should've been in the car all along." So, details on this engine swap could have been extremely useful. Instead, there is an article on swapping a Honda engine into an MR2 Spyder, lacking details.

Nice book, almost what I wanted.
