    Marty has been hacking away at this nugget of an MR2 for weeks and you're (still) along for the ride! The stock turbo looks broken, the intake doesn't work, the dump pipe is wrecked, the bolts all seized. The car doesn't run very well but with some mad new aftermarket parts, the MR2 is going to be reborn ready to battle Moog's MOON Buggy!

        MOOG's music is really on point lately during these past two builds. Are any of these new (or new to me) tracks publicly available? My playlists are hungry.

      2. James W

        Have you guys tried the mountain dew flavored Doritos? I'm in the states so we don't have them yet. 🤣

      3. Christian Gotsch

        Might want to check the shifter bushings as well. You can upgrade to a spherical bearing kit. The shift bushings may have been replaced with brass ones, which suck ass. It can really foul up your engagement as well.

      4. TickleMeShlomo

        Er shouldn't those bolts be torqued to spec?

      5. Che1seabluesdrogba11

        Wonder if u should get another one lol

    2. DeepPastry

      A 5th injector... Into the intake... Ah, the old injectors couldn't either provide quite enough fuel, or more likely couldn't quite manage to atomize and mix the fuel thoroughly enough; or a bit of both. So just add an injector to the air intake to make up for the issue. Bob's your uncle.

      Mostly music in this show lol

    7. Louis Lopez

      Does anyone know the names of the songs used for this episode’s soundtrack?

      watching you use that welders wire brush was painful. Get wire brush/nylon cut brush attachments for your drill/impact drivers etc.

    11. ricky v

      This has been a phenomenal series so far. I am glad Marty is taking on this challenge. (: With a turbo like that, wouldn’t more boost be possible?

    12. Yee Sen Chai

      Whoever buys this MR2 later on will be happy all that crap is taken care of.

    13. Jacob Walls

      Is porting the headers to the turbo flange gasket a thing?

    14. Shane M

      This is the most satisfying series

    15. DeputyDanTV

      MARTY port match your stuffff

    16. Anish Weerasooriya

      I got H O O O O O O O O E S C A A A L L I N G

    17. ryan watts

      Epic job fella, please wear some gloves though, so many carcinogenic elements in old oil 👍

    18. James Cowling

      WHAT!!!! No throttle body shaft seal replacement?? FOR SHAME!!!!!

    19. Wee Ming Paul Khung

      I just like the background music, the bass is good. Where can I find it?

    20. plunder1956

      I did wonder will the MR2 engine drop out below the car to work on it. Or must it come out of the top? Since you split open & fix cars, consider a Parts Washer. Very satisfying tools.

    21. Monterey Car Company

      Videos like this is why i pay for my internet bill. Great Video ..

    22. FonicsSuck

      jesus thats one slow lift Marty! Still better than mine tho.

    23. Grant Ritchey

      New subscriber, what other builds of MCM should I watch? Thanks! :)

    24. sharpemang

      What's this song at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="290">4:50</a>?

    25. chopper

      Why do something once, when two times is twice as good!?

    26. stephenmr2

      You are doing such a good job of this You have proven again that your youtune channel is the very best one of all the car oriented channels on the youtube!!!I really like your well equipped work shop I am so jealous of you big solid vice. Thank you for doing this build it is very nice to watch multiple times.

    27. Martin Long

      Hey Martin, I hope you are well and free of the China virus. Those of us in UK who love MCM wonder when the next instalment of the MR2 is coming. Hopefully soon? In the meantime ..........take care.

    28. MrMrsedz

      Oil filter relocation kit maybe a good idea too .

    29. Gerrit TjaardA Marinus

      Duurt lang... new vid please !!

    30. Big Pol

      The look on martys face when that bolt didnt hit the ground

    31. andrewdini panda


    32. Ahmed Adam

      This was a very soothing video for the inner petrol head in me! The way things were cleaned and upgraded and improved and cleaned again....ahhhhhhh my OCD is at peace ... great work video as always!

    33. zijuiy wttuy

      You should call it the MRT, doubles as MR turbo and Marty.

    34. Erik Thompson

      How to change the oil in an MR2 step 1: remove the boot lid...

      1. zijuiy wttuy

        Keep up the great work guys I love videos like these

    35. Charming nowhere to hide

      No oil changes were missed , it’s a Toyota and they come with lifetime oil from factory just like Nissan CVT transmissions ....... Lol

    36. JumpSucka

      Sure Marty is gone to love it. It's a Black little Rustbucket Made in Japan by Daihatsu's Aniki TaYoda .... 🤣

      1. Charming nowhere to hide

        As a mr2 owner in your case its just easier to drop engine and gear box. It wont take long, just so easy to work with. Also then its easy replace timing belt and water pump.

    37. niduoe stre

      The guy that said “mighty car mods” in the intro sounds like he’s high on autotune

    38. RON SALES BR549

      Never seen a lift go that slow unless it was low of fluid.

      1. niduoe stre

        Are there links for the backing music?

    39. Paul B

      Love the getting in boot and taking lid off , access it a pain in all cars so make it easy as possible. Wish I had garage setup like that rather than a driveway

    40. Sam Vieira

      Ohhh what a great content for a “quarentena” keep it coming

    41. soinhu foitu

      " Its raining thats why theres the sound of rain on the shed" absolutely killed me XD hmm what might cause the sound of rain on a shed?

    42. Jonnysideways

      Did I miss it, or did you change the cooling pipe that seems to be positioned in the worse place possible? Having sold Toyota MR2's, Supra's and Celicas back in the day in the UK, as well as owning 3 MR2's it's great to see one on the show. Both of you and your mad spirt, imagination and blend of car content make for cracking viewing entertainment, look forward to the next ping from the notifications, it's keeping me distracted, and others I'm sure whilst going through our UK Lockdown. Keep it up. Just awaiting my first mech order ;0) #chopped

      1. soinhu foitu

        Just watch out boosting a gen 2 3sgte as they are known to pop headgaskets around 14psi, gen 3 are the ducks guts 18psi fuel cut factory vs 12psi gen 1 and 2, plus gen 3 h

    43. kruuuser

      Marty looking so much happier working on the car than last time. It's coming together

    44. Tim Duckett

    46. Paul King

      Why would 217 people dislike this video? FFS what is wrong with their stuff?

    47. Leon Pozo

      Even tho i love the moon buggy i hope you win Marty.. Can't let him destroy another one of your cars.. Seen to many sad faces from you in the past lol.. Gotta win and make it him cry when you crush his buggy! Tho i do love it!!!!

    48. Chris Jarvis

      i want to see the Air flow meter delete / new stile MOD he is doing to kill the old and use an new ECU. have not found another video on it yet.

    49. Acceptable Channel

      is it just me or when marty works on a car theres flashbacks to the fast and the furious? hugs love and bee safe :D

    50. Christian Villanueva

      Keep up the great work guys I love videos like these

    51. GreatNorthernTroll

      While I've always been an air-cooled VW fan, I kinda want Mr. Marty's MR2 to MEGAMUNCH Mr. Moog's Moon Buggy Bastardized Abomination!

    52. Veikko Vähätalo

      As a mr2 owner in your case its just easier to drop engine and gear box. It wont take long, just so easy to work with. Also then its easy replace timing belt and water pump.

    53. Gregory Veizades

      Pretty sure that 5th Injector you are referring to is the cold start enrichment valve.

    54. Blake Jones

      Are there links for the backing music?

    55. Gregory Veizades

      No washers under those Turbo Nuts?

    56. vinasu maaj

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="429">7:09</a> how could they pull this off without cracking a laugh holy shit 😂😂

    57. Jasper Bradley

      All this effort to potentially be done over by a moon buggy 😂

    58. Dj Eli Shane

      The mans a legend😎😎🙏👏

    59. Gtfloor Farkn

      Just watch out boosting a gen 2 3sgte as they are known to pop headgaskets around 14psi, gen 3 are the ducks guts 18psi fuel cut factory vs 12psi gen 1 and 2, plus gen 3 had 550cc injectors, ct20b turbo, different ecu, triple synchros on box plus many more differences (rev3 turbo sw20)

    60. Hipolito Lorenzo

      Looks like working on the engine on the rack is the better choice...

    61. DFW_Motorrad


    62. Incognito Bandito

      actually a decent episode, mad

    63. Zach Higgins

      Is the background music available for purchase? Really digging the last track.

    64. Mark

      I'm really enjoying this MR2 build. The rusted components and seized bolts just keeps it real.

    65. bradley morgan

      standing in a car on a lift... OSHA would have an absolute field day.

    66. roouit patan

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="515">8:35</a> whenever i hear this song i think of a pack of monkeys partying in the jungle on lsd

    67. Chris Jarvis

      really interested in the parts to update the system intake. like parts list of what you used?

      1. roouit patan

        That...hoist.....isss.......sloooww ....zzzzzzzzz

    68. Sam Fry

      Should have put a coat of paint on the rocker cover while u had it out and clean x

    69. retardedegon

      5th injector on the manifold sounds like a cold start injector, only functions when temp is low, and a separate temp switch operates it. 90s Toyota are famous for them. Love the MR2 Marty, Moon buggy is gonna get Chopped! ✌️

    70. Rasmus Bilow

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="116">1:56</a> "bap" ??? 😂😂

    71. Sam Watson

      ...Is that Moog going "pop"at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="117">1:57</a>??

    72. pera2008

      toyotas engineering fail to properly organize parts, but if it works it is one beauty and enjoyable car which wants to kill you if you are not experienced driver
