This page has been wholly lifted (Except the MR2 SC Stuff) from Geoff Seely's extremely useful MR2.COM. All the credit should be heaped upon Geoff. I was designing my own page and using his for reference (only) when it dawned on me that it just couldn't be done better, more concise or clearer.
MR2 SC Interest Mailing List (MR2SC)
These lists are about Toyota MR2 Supercharged sports cars sold from 1986 to 1989 (in North America from 1988 to 1989).
MR2 Interest Mailing List (MR2-Interest)
If you subscribed just to get answers to a few questions, please start by reading the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Document where you'll find answers to many common questions.
NOTE: The keywords such as "subscribe", "unsubscribe", etc., MUST be in the BODY of the message, and NOT in the Subject: or other header lines.
Anything *reasonably* related to Toyota MR2's may be posted there. This mailing list is currently unmoderated; please help keep it that way.
What's the Difference between MR2-Interest, MR2-Digest, and MR2-Announce?
Anybody may make an announcement - but only announcements of interest to all members world-wide, and requests for "emergency" advice are appropriate here. Examples of emergencies: You need expert advice to make a repair or purchase decision on short notice. Discussions are not appropriate. If you have advice for an emergency situation, send it to the requester directly by email. If you want to carbon copy your response, copy it to the interest or digest. Do NOT copy to the ANNOUNCE list. The prohibition against discussions is not enforced automatically now; please help keep it that way.
If you have a question that isn't answered by the FAQ, and you ask on the lists, and you get useful responses, please summarize them in a summary message to the list where you asked the question so others may benefit. "Summarize" means explain what you learned, not simply concatenate all the messages you received with headers, signatures, and duplicate info intact.
For the Benefit of the People who Maintain this List
Please try to keep messages under 5000 characters, try not to send from an e-mail account that is not subscribed, and try not to use the words 'help' or 'subscribe' in the subject or first few lines of the body. Any of these things will cause your message to go to the list maintainers for approval and will delay its appearance.
Please unsubscribe from all your mailing lists before closing an account with an ISP - so we don't have to do it for you.
On an average day in April 1997, about 100,000 bytes were transmitted as 50 or more individual messages and as 3 or more digests. Before you subscribe from work, be sure your employer tolerates that level of non-business related individual email.
A mailing list is not a club, although announcements from various regional MR2 clubs appear here from time to time.
Subject Headings (MK I or MK II?)
The volume of messages makes it incumbent on all of us to make our Subject: lines as explicit as possible. In particular, if it falls into any of the following categories, please start your Subject: header line with
Please follow the category with your subject like "brake/supsension questions" or "replacement turbo needed". The time we save in doing this way is our own. If your posting doesn't fall into any of these categories, don't worry about using a special header.
There is a web page (which you are currently at) maintained by Geoff Seeley. You'll find an "FAQ" of answers to frequently-asked-questions and a wealth of other information. As with other mailing lists and newsgroups, it's good to start by reading the FAQ.
Archives are available as well.
What Does That Mean?
Here's a small list of acronyms that are often used in E-mail, chat rooms, and the MR2 list:
About Electronic Mailing Lists
Your name will usually be removed from the list if a posting bounces due to "user unknown", "configuration error", "filesystem full", or the like. No email is sent in these cases, so if the list gets very quiet, you probably have been removed. If you post a message and get numerous bounce replies, do not be concerned or forward them to anybody. They are proof that your message got through to the majority of the list - that's why you got bounces from the minority.
Before posting to these or any other mailing lists or newsgroups, please read the advice posted monthly to news.announce.newusers. The most important convention for preserving the quality of electronic communication is just: "praise in public, criticize in private." If you think somebody is dead wrong, send email to that person. Don't start a flame war in view of the whole list. If somebody else fails to observe that convention, remember "better to be silent and be thought a fool than hit ^D and remove all doubt".
Do not use this or any public mailing list to plan any illegal activity, whether traffic violations or copyright violations or anything else. To do so exposes the list maintainers to potential legal problems they don't need and can't afford.

Toyota Supra Mailing List

Celica All-Trac/GT4 Mailing List

(The following is from the DIY-Turbo mailing list welcome message)
Welcome to diy-turbo! This is a very well-defined group with one goal: To study and promote the use of turbochargers on automobiles! While anyone is allowed to join, the following rules must be followed:
Why so pedantic? Mostly due to my many years of mailing list administration. I'd like to actually create a list that has a goal and a final product. If we would have had some decent format for the Toyota Mods list (from which this group is originally derived) we would now have the basis for an excellent book. Unfortunately, this was not done, and the same subjects are repeated over and over, and the majority of the wonderful responses have been long lost to 10's of megabytes of boring archives.
Please don't introduce yourself to the group as we do on the TM list. Simply read all of the backposts, study the thread of discussion as it currently exists, and post your comments when you feel you have something valuable to add.
