I have never driven a Cayman. It does feel similar power wise to the 2001 boxster s I use to own.

I imagine the 2gr swap is the way to go.

I would guess it runs a mid to high 13 in the quarter.

Uhhhh, i figure it runs 14.7.

Don't get me wrong, it's still cool as hell. Got a pic of the newer steering wheel installed? I feel like putting later wheels with slimmer airbags in early-90's 'huge airbag' cars is generally a really nice mod.

Yeah the car is definitely a rocket ship, but a hodgepodge of parts...motor from an RX350, ECU (Frankenstein) from a Rav4 originally. Just don't look at the codes the OBD2 scanner brings up for auto trans and it's all good

Hopefully will install it tomorrow. I just got the column surround this evening.

Thinking of 2gr MR2/Spyder makes me giddy. And i already own a 911 of similar power/weight. It's just such an awesome swap...

You know, one would think that actually finding and installing a used TRD supercharger setup for a 1mz is so unlikely it's pie in the sky. But somehow, i actually have a friend who did that exact thing recently (although his car is a late 90s 5spd Camry).

Very clean! I've had a 91 and a 93. Probably my favorite cars I have ever owned. Definitely want another some day.

Installed the new wheel. So much better!

Drove in comfort with AC to Jupiter Florida today. 26 mpg at a steady 80 mph, not to shabby.

Newer wheel seems to play nice with old interior.

What was the rpms at 80mph? Did you ever confirm which transmission you have?

I sold it earlier this year to a guy in Virginia.  It was a great car!
