This was a really good one for me because I have a gen 1 mr2 (4age) that I have considered 3s swapping.

Lotta good information was in the vid.

They were visually and audibly screwing with watchers.

First they said no turbo and high compression pistons.

Then without saying anything installed what are obviously turbo pistons.

Any then pulled a reversal and put a turbo on it! "For passing"

I'm ashamed to say that I missed the part about low compression pistons going in and was a bit confused by the turbo bit at the end. I wonder if they showed two separate engines and they have a naturally aspirated one going in another project?

I had to watch it twice, as SWMBO was talking when it was decided that that the motor should be NA, and Turbo Yoda spat his drink out. I didn't clue in until the turbo talk at the end, which made me go back and see that they were installing low comp pistons. The plug for the turbo oil feed was also a clue, it didn't look quite up to their standards of finish (the alloy spacer between the banjo bolt and the block).

I note that their tools are getting pretty fancy, that torque wrench is quite the Bling thing!
