    I went out today to check out this y8 motor a guy from work has. Make sure everything looked ok and so on. paid 200 bucks for block, head, tranny, and ecu. He is wanting to do a different build so it works out for the both of us. Anyway he tells me ya I got this car over here it's a classic your into tuners I think you'll like it. So I asked what is it? He replies 1986 MR2. He wants 300 bucks for it said it runs just need a new alt and a tune up its been sitting for little while. But I know very little about Toyota for 300 bucks i would think if it runs for 6 months it paid for itself. It looks good body is in pretty good shape. Is it worth the buy? Is there a good aftermarket for that old of Toyota? Just looking for an opinion or two.

    Thanks

    basically it depends if you have the cash and actually need a car. if you want a commuter for less than $500 and it runs well, then i would pick it up. i wouldn't but it just for the sake of having it and it's cheap.

    buy it, clean it up and sell it for a G. it may be a supercharged version.

    Yes I thought that also. But with a little research the supercharged version came out in 87 :( I think I'm going to pick it up.
