The Spyder (2000-2007)
This is a quick write up describing the rear suspension update I did for my 2003 Spyder. Basically, some years back when I owned a 2001 Spyder, I purchased a set of struts and...
This is a “How to” that I did a few months ago. I relocated the stock battery down to the lower cross member. These directions can be used to relocate a smaller battery also. *I have a cold air intake and don’t believe this will work with the stock air box, it may but these directions are for those that do not use the stock air box.
This was done with stock parts (Battery hold down bracket & J-Bolt) and a Dremmel. The stock J-bolt just fits so to make my life easier I went to the auto store to picked up 10″ J-bolts to hold down the battery for $3.99. Total cost was a few hours and $3.99, I already had the Dremmel & Rustoleum
This is a “how to” with some pictures that may assist in taking out our manual tranmissions. If your doing the removal yourself like I did you should alot 4 plus hours for your...
Yesterday I started grinding and sanding down my calipers. Living by the beach does cause a bit of corrosion. It took the good part of the afternoon to get them to a point that I felt it was good for painting.

The third generation MR2 had three different names, depending on country; Toyota MR-S in Japan, Toyota MR2 Spyder in the United States, and the Toyota MR2 Roadster in Europe. With the previous MR2 having been in the market for almost ten years, it was time for it to move aside as Toyota released the new MR2, designated ZZW30. The new MR2 was a part of Toyota Project Genesis, a plan from Toyota to attract buyers from the younger age bracket in an effort to increase sales in the United States, being one of Toyota’s worse flops, the project quickly ended in 2001, when Toyota launched its successful marque, Scion. The car received a complete makeover compared to the two previous models. One of the biggest changes was the replacement of the solid, T-Top, and sunroof options with a true convertible soft top, giving the car the ‘Spyder’ designation. Due to a new car design rule from SAE (The Society of Automotive Engineers), the pop-up headlights as seen on SW20 had to be removed. It is the only Toyota MR2 generation to not be sold in Canada.
