Everything pretty much stayed the same except Toyota eventually ran out of LSD's and quit including them from the factory and the later models got a slight hp boost.

The SC version of the car is basically the same with the exception of a supercharger and the hp was bumped from 112 (115 for the later years) to 145hp.

The model years for the AW11 ran from 1984 to 1989. To be fair I'm posting as many stock photos of the car as I can find





^ except that one, because it's just badass!

The 4AGE engine used in this car, the AE86 and a few other cars at the time is still in used today (In a heavily modifyed state) in the Toyota Atlantic series. The engine pushes out 240hp, I'd love to get my hands on one biggrin.gif

I can't call it any more than cool...it seems to not have aged that well. Excellent performance for its vintage, though.
Mr b00st
its a solid "cool"

the 4A-GZE was a neat little blown engine. Had an electric clutch on the supercharger to eliminate drag at idle. Made very good low end torque but unfortunately Toyota putzed with the suspension and apparently screwed it up pretty bad.

I'd really like an AW11 smile.gif

Though I like the MR2 with the body kit and rims you posted, I'm still going to have to go with uncool, just because I don't like the looks. It's too '80s for me.

I'm gonna have to say no. And especially not cooler than your RSX, so I don't know why you'd say that.
