Engine is still mr2 rev3 twin entry turbo , i stripped it down and polished parts up myself and also had bits chromed , i used red samco hoses all around , i am running alot bigger intercooler and 8 inch  fan , air filter is Apexi with two cold air feeds running to it, I used standard strut brace as well as a stonger after market one. I have used 8.5mm magnecor plug leads , and a manual boost valve and car is running at 18 psi instead of 11 psi. Also i have used black plastic and made a trim to go around engine bay and finnished it off by using real ferrari stickers , all bolts / washers / nuts i replaced with red anodised pro bolts.
