more of the 7A-GTE20...
obviously also in an AW-11.
Ever hear rumors or or stories of twincharged AW-11's??
the workshop that did a lot of the work on my 86 did several twincharge conversions on AE-82's & AE-92's... (they're the sole Australian distibutor for HKS, which explains a lot )
never heard of a twin-charged AW-11 though...
There are a few getting around my town.
A turbo AE86 ran a 11.7 at the drags the other day, it was pretty cool.
Why would u want a AE86 for Drag use?
Why not? Light weight, rear-wheel-drive, solid rear axle=good drag car.
Drop a 3T-C in it with either a turbo or nitrous or both and scare the shit out of V-8's all day long. The AE86 is a fairly popular drag car in the Carribean.
makes me think the 3T-C in my TE-72 may not be so bad after all!

^10-second Suzuki powered by an all-motor Toyota 3T-C!!
the first one i know the guy, name is troy trueleo, look for his near 600 hp MKII MR2 in super streets' ultimate street car challenge
I find a small amount of amusement in the import drag scene here in the States. Most of the current enthusiasts have no idea how much four-cylinder and rotary performance has already been developed in other countries...albeit mostly in RWD platforms. Corollas, Starlets, Datsun 1200s, RX-2s, RX-3s, and RX-7s were running faster than 10 seconds in places like Puerto Rico a long time before drag racing Hondas became popular in the U.S.
I also got a really big kick out of some of the Puerto Rican (and Antiguan) AE86 drag racing guys finding some of the early online AE86 communities back in the late-90's: "Hey, there's a car just like mine! Why has it got such skinny tires on the back? That's strange....it looks like it has Webers, no....wait, there's four of them....it's injected? ..strange! Wow, this is kind of cool.... HOLY CRAP, IT'S GOING SIDEWAYS!"
And most of us were like, "Wait...let me see if I got this straight. You ripped out the twincam 16-valve for WHAT lump of iron? And you are using a Toyota pickup truck rear axle? Wow...cool burnout...HOLY CRAP, IT JUST DID A WHEELIE!"
It's not a drag car. Just a street car. Turbo AE86, making good power. Slap on slicks.
I just picked up a 85 GTS tuesday. Lovin it!
those (that first motor especially) are BEAUTIFUL
that 1st one is the owner of www.MR2faq.com and www.racingstrong.com
his name is bill strong and he has a few super aw11s you can find out more of what he has got at those sites
that's da troof!~~~~
i would take a AW11 with a 3SGTE lightly modded.
AE86 with a heavily modded Beams 3SGE > *
Um... that is NOT Bill Strong's engine (although he did post the pictures on the MR2 message board). He is building a similar engine using the same style exhaust manifold, but the engine pictured belongs to Troy Trueleo like NoVtecHatchy said.
