1991 Toyota MR2 description:After serious thought. I've decided to sell my 1991 Toyota MR2 V6 3vzfe SWAP. I will be honest in the build history, maintenance & description of the vehicle before & during my ownership.
The MR2 was refurbished & restored from a builder out of Ohio. I first came across it for sale on eBay. According to the builder the car came to him from Kentucky. He acquired the engine from a 1993 Lexus ES300. He "claimed" to have refurbished/ refreshed the engine as well as other mods he had done and agreed to terms. Car was purchasedon 11/10/2104.
Upon receiving the car & Driving it. I immediately noticed it was leaking oil. My mechanic diagnosed it as a cam seal leak. He couldn't fix it or get to the cam seals without pulling the engine.
I had no no choice but to do so. When the engine was pulled, it was discovered the engine had indeed never been refurbished. Only the engine head had been painted nicely to look through the Lexall glass custom rear engine lid with a nice cold air intake & killer red steel custom fabricated one of a kind X-Bar. Lesson learned.
With the engine now pulled. A complete engine refurbishing was conducted the proper way like it was supposed to have been done the first time. Listed below are the parts and ones listed with an * are all new parts / mods I've invested in while under my ownership. Please note all motor parts were refurbished with all brand new OEM parts while the motor was pulled. Car is now solid with absolutely NO leaks whatsoever.
