by jlevy2 on Jul 5, 2014 Vehicle: 2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible
My review may not be a fair one since my spyder is not really close to stock.
I've got a 2zz-ge engine and 6 speed from a 2001 Celica-GTS, the factory TRD suspension and bracing, additional under body bracing (breast plate), and much of the suspension rubber replaced with urethane.
The car drives great and is my daily driver and has been very reliable, especially for a 14 year old car.
Handling is very confident and acceleration with the 2zz engine is good.
I've also got the TRD clutch-type LSD which I would not recommend - I would prefer the factory helical LSD option instead.
