Be careful as there isn't much room available for ring lands as it is.
Can alter rod length but that can be another bunch of tricks too.
Wish you well but please don't do it.

That's a 2.3L then
Has anyone done this before?

I believe so. I have to do more research.



ATS Racing do a 2.3L short block. They don't say what combination of parts and machining they do to achieve it though. Prob a machined 5s crank as you mentioned with standard size 3s rods and custom pistons in a 5s block.

If you have the budget, space and an understanding enough other half have you thought about getting another SW to be a bit more experimental with and keeping your current one they way it is?
 
A bit extreme for some, depends on how far the mr2 thing gets into you and what is possible. 
 
I guess you have another daily car anyway but i'm always of the thought that more is more.

I don't have the budget for that anymore haha.
Besides, as much as I love MR2s, I've never wanted more than one. I'd rather focus all my efforts on one to make it as close to perfect as possible.

I just dropped by Advance Motor Mechanics again and discussed it with them. I'll be sticking to the ~2.2L option to avoid the added risks of going 2.3L.

The car hasn't been touched yet due to the xmas break, but they plan to remove the engine this week.

I think the results they have achieved on someone elses black one probably should be testament enough for going with the 2.2L.

I agree - 2.2L block sounds like the best plan. Tried and tested. 

At the end of the day, you want to make the same/slightly more power with the same/more reliability.
