    New Donor for 355 Replicas

    Hello, here are some pictures of a 355 replica built on a Toyota MR2 Turbo. In my opinion this kit looks much better than any I have ever seen on a Fiero. Maybe because the Toyota MR2 has a wheel base of 94.5" - just 2" shorter than a real, and the "notchback" problem isnīt a problem any more... Please give me your opinion. 355.http://www.btinternet.com/~adefadero/F355Kit2.htm

    Looks really nice but it's twice as expensive than most kits in the U.S.A.I think thats about $14,000 plus shipping,hardware and the car, not to mention the import tax.Good reading though

    Yes, you are right. I was searching because in my country there arenīt Fieros, and MR2īs are common cars in our streets I forgot that in the US is the opposite :-[
    Iīm not a "kit expert", so if anyone could point the differences to the real 355, i would thank, because iīm thinking of adquiring one of these kits (if i can find one).

    Looks like a nice kit. Does the kit contain all of the parts. The price seems pretty good. You either pay for a good kit or a good body shop. Ask Ari.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    Your going to pay a good price for a turbo MR2 but you shouldn't have to change much other than the body panels , maybe raise the turbo boost a little to have a car faster than the real 355. under a hundred mph any way. A few years had a non-turbo and loved it
