87 JDM AW11 supercharger

Thought I'd start a new showroom thread for my 1987 two tone supercharged AW11.
I've owned it now for a few years, but its been in storage for the whole time, waiting for me to get some time to get stuck into it..... so finally I have started ;-)
 
It is as nearly factory as one could expect, other than the aftermarket 15" alloy mags.
 
The one behind is another one I have, but with a 20v blacktop in it. It too is almost factory looking, but that's for a showroom thread later.

 

 

 
Factory stereo, not my choice, but automatic, but drives & shifts great

 

 
Started removing the engine, would like to freshen thing up & check as much as I can, unfortunately, removing the entire engine is the only way.

 

 
Engine out, strip down time

 
Received cylinder head back, only required facing, otherwise excellent condition

 
More to come!

    Quick update
     
    Started giving the mr2 a buff 'n' polish, coming up a lot better than I anticipated for original paint... WOW Toyota did a really good paint job on these aw11's for their time.
     

     

     

     
    Engine lid had years of weather build up...

     
    After polish

     
    Underneath was terrible
     
     
    After polish
     
     
    Special thanks to Joel (Lumix) for providing replacement decals

    Slow progress, but finally getting around to working on the cars again.
     
    Radiator removed, cleaned/ flushed prior to engine reinstall


     
    Fans cleaned from years of build up & reinstalled, wish I took a pic of what they looked like before 

     
    Fuel tank removed to clean & replace fuel pump

     
    Original pump by the looks of things, although bottom rubber missing & cable tied, maybe has been replaced... not sure, so replacing it anyway

     
    New replacement unit installed, carried over the existing filter, replacement bag didn't look as good quality & hung very low from the pump

     
    Next: reinstall engine :-)

    For some reason I didnt get base injector seals in my VRS kit for the 4agze, only got the mid & top ones, so they had to be ordered from Japan.
     

     
    Old seals, they were quite brittle on removal
     
     
    Freshly installed seals

     
    Started cleaning up the front end, was quite sad, but honest at least

     
    Very tired Toyota bumper sticker, will be replaced - photos to come

     
    Rubbed back & prepped, installed good condition eye brows from my other car

     
    Freshly painted, new plate installed
