The MR2 came from the factory with a turbocharged engine on some models. However that looks like a CAI he's got there.

Sweet car, and I like what's behind it as well!

If the MR2 is intercooled, which I'm not sure about, then the CAI is pretty much of a waste. The air will be heated in the turbo, and again cooled in the intercooler. So any advantage of 1 degree or so will be lost.

It can't be a ram-air intake system either, because there's a turbo between the intake and the valves.

I'm guessing it's a duct that guides cold air onto the intercooler...please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
