    Default Looking for another MPS 3 2nd gen

    Hi all, I just thought Id introduce myself, 4 years ago my Wife owned a RED MPS 3 but sold it. I loved the car very much and regretted her selling it.
    I have owned EVO's (4 in fact) for a long time and still love them and will be buying a 2nd gen MPS 3 as soon as my EVO VII sells.


    So if you know anyone in the market for one of the best EVO's in the country that runs 12's down the 1/4 let me know as it will get me into a new MPS 3 sooner.
    I'm looking to learn more about the MPS and how to modify them so that they stay reliable and quick.
    Cheers.

    Welcome Mr NQ! Are you in Townsville? Cairns? Good group of MPSers in Cairns.

    You've come to the right place for mod advice. SRI's to rebuilds, someone's doing it.

    Have Fun!!

    Brad.

    Hey mate, I'm in Townsville.

    How does the Fuel system rate when running more boost? Obviously up grade the pump, But what size are the injectors?
    Have heard about bottom end issues with the 1st gen when running more boost, are the 2nd gen any better?

    A recent poll suggests very few people have changed their fuel pumps in the Australia. That includes full tunes and even some with new bigger turbos.

    US owners seem to have a very different opinion. A large percentage of them swear that changing fuel pump internals is the first thing to do

    Yeah I loved the MPS when we owned it and have heard the 2nd gen is even better and has more fruit.
    Of course I would give CASH your way as well as the EVO.
    Dont get me wrong the EVO is in a class of it own, But there's just something about the MPS....

    If the MPS3 was AWD, Id be there in a heartbeat too. The rex and evo just dont make sense until you get to the twisties. I do love cruising around in the MPS3 tho; comfortable, luxurious, zippy. Its got everything.... (except AWD )

    Yep exactly couldn't agree more. But in my old(er) age I'm starting to like a bit more luxary. I love the low down Torque of the 2.3

    Welcome mate, I'm in exactly the same boat as you, having traded my R33 Skyline in on a Gen II MPS. Much more luxury and less hassles than a modded import. You will love it!

    Yay, great colour choice. Not sure if you're staying in Bris Vegas on the way through, could catch up for a coffee with the local crew?

    Would be awesome to catch up but it's going to be a mad dash and will be going inland on the way home.
    Didn't drive a 2nd gen yet, But we had a 1st gen and loved it. I'll have a good 2500klm to "Test" drive it on the way back.

    The only thing both cars have in common is the badge and engine, the car feels like a different car despite making the same power.

    However you might prefer the characteristics of the new Gen

    I was just asking always been curious how people buy cars without testing them. Before buying my MPS I was actually in the market for an RX8 but after test driving one the RX8 went from 1st on the list to 5th, still in love with its looks though.

    Well I picked the car up on Saturday and drove 2300klm from Newcastle to Townsville, What a great trip, what a great car! Was good on fuel too. Getting around 700klm per tank.
    But I did get a speeding ticket , Not too bad as the last one was over 10 years ago.

    Congrats on picking up the new car.

    Bummer about the ticket. Hope you were having fun when you got caught. QLD or NSW?
