Well it's off the road now. Now turbo as its in bits. No seats etc. so it's not going anywhere for a while.
I know where the leaks are. The door seals. Or lack of them more like. If you run the hose down them the water pours in  Shocked. Time for some new rubbers.
I'm going for a full service to include a cam belt. Lots of cleaning up to do. I'm going through the whole car. If there's anything I'm not happy with I'm going to change it.
What I need is a reliable car. If I want to drive it to Brighton and not worry about a break down.
The Previous owner ran out of money hence why it's wet and broken. I'm going to change that.

Before I started to strip down the turbo I decided to start stripping out the floor of the interior.
I'm glad I did because under the mats it was a swimming pool.
The sound deadening was saturated with water. Uuurrrccckkk.
The passenger seat was well fitted. It was held in place by one bolt. LOL Shocked
I'm going to refit new sound deadening and wash the carpets and mats.  
Piccies so far.

Well I have had time today to strip down the engine to find out what's going on.
I've found the fault .  Shocked
On the MR2 owners club forum I had a few replies to this problem and one of the mentioned the that shaft between the compressed and exhaust turbines in the turbo had snapped.
This gave me the idea that I need to strip it down.
So after a few hours taking the car apart I was amazed by my findings.
The exhaust turbine has completely gone. It's been blown apart. Oblitrated completely.
There just isn't any turbine left in there.
You can see a flat area where the turbine joined to the shaft and that rotates as you spin the compressor wheel.
I did find abit of turbine in the exhaust. The rest must be on the motorway when it went bang.
I'm amazed that this can happen with such force but when you consider the speeds that the turbine spin at.
Time to buy a new turbo.
I've attached a few photos of my findings

That would be totally awesome.

This is the sound I would like to achieve.
Ok it's a long shot but it's just an idea. (A real Cerberus)  Shocked
Turn up volume. LOL

Hi Tony.
Thankyou for your comment.
Yes your right about the modifications.
I defently don't want to touch anything behind the seats to include the firewall.
All the back of the interior is covered in leather and it's got a tiny little window.
It's been really nicely done and would be a shame to change any of it. So I'm leaving well alone.
From what I have read today for others either a rebuilt 2.0 turbo engine or a V6 is the way forward.
The V6 would sound awesome with straight through pipes and with the pipes being so short. It would wake the dead.
But a rebuilt modified turbo engine would also wake the dead.
When I come to the decision either will be a good choice at the end of the day.
What's most important is when people hear you coming the effect must leave the impression that they have just seen and heard a Lambo go past.
I can't let the side down. LOL.

That's a good point.
I'm not to worried about the brakes as the MR2 ones are a good spec. But I know what you mean about the spacers. The torque will twist the spacers like ringing a wet flannel. I would need to go for split rim wheels so that the hub fits directly to the disc to take the torque. Split rim wheels are on the list.
I'm actually not interested in massive bhp and speed. If I was I would had brought a BMW M3. That's not what owning a replica is about. But to have a real V12 in there gives the ultimate appeal and sound.
I wouldn't dream taking it over 80mph. I'm not a lunatic. As you sit so close to the floor 60mph feels like 100 anyway.  
The car looks like it will do 200mph plus. That's all that matters. Looks and sound.

Alittle story. I used to be involved in stage effects and I built a burn out effect kit for my old Sierra cosworth back then. I could do some amazing burn outs without even spinning my wheels.
How? Firstly the sound. A cosworth hitting the rev limiter is loud enough.  Then the effect. In the boot I had 2 high power stage effect smoke machines piped into the wheel arches. Now I know your thinking about those rubbish ones you can buy in Maplin. Err no I'm talking about the big professional ones. When I pressed the smoke dump button you couldn't see a thing as there was so much smoke. I used to get massive cheers at the cruises.  Ever seen a burnout where the smoke stinks of strawberry.  I tried every flavour. Neutral was best.

Hi.
Yes the car does stink of petrol when you Rev it. It did when I first picked it up. Unfortunatly my lack of knowledge of engines made me assume that it was just very rich due to the high power tuning.
Now the oil light stays on. It does run and tick over but the turbo does nothing. You used to hear the turbo when reving.
One thing I do know is that the engine has been well fiddled with.
I'm not to worried as I am starting the major strip this week. Engine coming out and goes back in later in the summer. I have not yet decided yet what engine goes back. I would love a v12 but might have to settle for a v6 or v8.
As I brought is as a project I've got some wild ideas lol.
I'm treating the car like a old house project. Best thing is to gut it and start again.

I think it's terminal.
Oil light won't go out this morning.v Cry Cry Cry Cry

Looks live I've blown it up. Oh well.
Time to source a new engine.
I've been reading about a Woodsport V6 conversion. 
Might get rid of the 2 litre junk. I had a feeling that the turbo would be a pain. I've never like turbos because of this.
Looks like Woodsport are trying a V12. Now that really interests me.   Shocked

I need advice please as I have had alittle troubles with Cerberus.
This afternoon I decided to take Cerberus out for a nice Saturday afternoon drive.
The sun was out so some poseing was required. I drove through Windsor, Maidenhead, cookham, Bourne end, Marlow and to finish off Henley. A nice big 40 mile round trip.
The car performed totally faultless.
On the way home I decided to join the M4 for a quick get home.
As I was coming down the slip road I decided to drop down a gear and floored it.
I took the revs right up to the red line.
Suddenly there was a real loud pop and I lost power.
The car was still driving smoothly but it was like my turbo had fallen off.
It now drives like a gutless 2 litre without the turbo. The engine sounds sweet. It's still very smooth. No smoke. And it starts and ticks over as normal. But there's no boost. None what so ever. No hissing nothing. It's like the turbo isn't there.
I have removed the inter cooler pipes to check for a burst pipe. There all ok.
I've checked the inter cooler itself for a leak. That's fine as well.
Checked the actuator pipes and there ok.
I've felt the turbo intake to make sure the turbo spins freely. It's fine.
Now I'm scratching my head on this one.
Any ideas???

How did you get the Lambo lettering? 
494  Extreme Kits / Extreme Murcie / Engine bay on: May 09, 2015, 01:46:21 PM
Looki what I managed to pick up?
How I found it I have no idea. Talk about rare as rocking horse sh**.
I was looking around on Google at all the Photos. And I found this somewhere.
It's a replica engine top for the Murcielago V12.
I started emailing people all over the world and one replied somewhere in Romania I think.
The person had made a few but said he had one left at the bottom of his shed. I immediately made him a offer he couldn't refuse. Sent him money via PayPal and 2 weeks later here it is.
I'm well chuffed.
I've got the 2 rocker covers, 4 throttle bodies, spark leads cover and even the black sides to the throttle bodies.
It's bare glass fibre at the mo. But I will be getting it painted and have Lamborghini logos on the rocker covers and it should look like the last photo when fitted.  Shocked
495  Extreme Kits / Extreme Murcie / Mirrors removal. on: May 08, 2015, 07:42:15 PM
The mirrors are bonded to the doors on Cerberus does anybody know how to remove them?
They don't even fold in as there all in one. But they are electric adjusting.
I need to take them off to fit Cerberus in my single garage. It's going be tight with half an inch each side to spare.
Cerberus has a very fat arse  Shocked LOL
