Camr2 V6 Swap: 1986 Toyota MR2

The first generation Toyota MR2 (1984-1989) was developed by Lotus Engineer Roger Becker and tuned on the race track by some guy named Dan Gurney, which meant it had better handling than its contemporary competition, such as the Fiat X1/9, Pontiac Fiero, Honda CR-X, or Ford EXP. But with a small 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine, it didn’t go very fast on the straights, so people have figured out how to shove larger V6 engines into the little mid-engine run-about. Find this 1986 Toyota MR2 V6 Swap offered for $7000 in Portland, OR via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
