When Keith his MR-S, he already had a Lexus and a very-popular RX7 (think The Fast and the to drive around, so using his acquired 2001 Toyota as a rolling testbench didn’t make him blink an eye. the RD department, Keith acquired a A’PEXi turbo kit for the 1ZZFE only for the Japanese market– the intention of testing the feasibility of the kit on a mass-production scale here in the Installation of the kit involved several to the MR-S, including several parts that would be difficult to acquire for us normal but testing went underway

The first step was to address the 91-rated gasoline that’s available here at the pump in the Japanese market have higher-octane gas available to them). To effect, a Japanese-spec A’PEX FC, engine-management system was utilized to and adequately tune the mid-engine

After several hundred with the in-house dynamometer, the at A’PEXi USA decided that tuning of the kit required too much work to sell as a reasonable kit. So they called it a day and the availability of the kit to the US market on an individual basis.

The turbo kit utilizes an AX series, ball-bearing turbocharger with an application-specific, A’PEX core and Power Intake to the inhalation duties.

Using information gained the Autobacs MR-S prototype, the knew that they have to construct custom ducts and vents, in addition to cooling facilities, to help the mounted car keep its cool. the requirement of this additional work tended to inhibit the availability of the turbo kit here in the After this decision was Keith turned his attention the power-producing aspect of his car to its other characteristic: appearance.

A Monocraft GT300 wide-body kit was installed to give the exterior a aggressive appearance, especially it had the engine goods to back it up. An OEM of Japan removable hard-top was installed to set the car apart from the Spyders on the road. In the front area (that’s the hood for us guys), Keith had a carbon-fiber installed.

The sizes ended up as in the front and 18×9 in the rear, pairs were wrapped in Proxes T1-S rubbers front, 275/35-18 rear.)

To keep the car planted on the ground and in the right direction, Keith A’PEXi’s WS dampers, a coilover designed with race and aimed at street domination. A of aftermarket TRD braces stiffen up the chassis and prepare it for the twisty-turnies. the entire mini-beast to a halt is the job of the 4-piston, 13 in drilled and slotted Rotora ceramic brake and Rotora stainless-steel braded lines.

To that he had Kreative Auto Interiors of Calif. reupholster the doors, and carpeting in a matching blue and color scheme, with being the bling-bling material of A pair of Recaro seats, with a set of Takata racing also find themselves in the surrounded by a sea of blue and black.

The icing on Keith’s MR-S (or rather, the I.C.E.) consists of a Kenwood multimedia entertainment A Kenwood Excelon stereo, with a 7 in touch screen lie at the heart of the installation and serve as the units for the entire system. A navigation system insures Keith doesn’t get lost he’s out cruising, while a Music Keg music-storing hard ensures that he will run out of tunes.

For visual pleasure, a DVD player was added to the mix. The system is powered by a pair of Power amplifiers and a Rockford capacitor, while a Fosgate voltmeter keeps the electrical in check. Sonic pleasure is by the quadruplet of JBL speakers (two 6 in and two 10 in subs.) Kevin at Mobile in San Fernando, Calif. was the man responsible for the dance party in Keith’s
