Toyota MR2 with Two Jet Turbines

1991 Toyota MR2 with two jet turbines

ToyJunkies removed the factory engine in this 1991 Toyota MR2 and installed two GE T58 turboshafts. The team converted the turboshaft engines into jet engines which mean they provide movement through exhaust thrust. The wild car was recently sold on eBay for $20,100. If anyone knows anything more on this project please contact us or leave a comment.

  1. The original article writer is is mnot mistaken: They were turboshafts and are now jet engines.

    You are correct in identifying these engines as T58 gas turbines (actually better known as the T58-GE-8F). But they’ve since been converted to thrust (power turbine removed, exhaust nozzle fitted along with several other modifications) so they are now true ‘jet’ engines and no longer provide a shaft output.
