wow LOOKS amazing, i had a white 95 VR4,... it was a pain in the ass and every other day there was a new problem. Not to mention the 2nd and 3rd gear grind (bad synchro's) But since it was my first decently fast car, i will always love them

yeah i got the car when i was 15 as my first car project and my dad and i pulled everything from it to the shell. we "completed" the car like 2 years ago and we still have things go wrong with it haha this time my turbos shit the bed

and thanks guys! i wanted to run my 18x12 out back but my 18x10's have strut clearance issues up front, and with a spacer out back they'd look sweet i think. not sure what's going on yet with everything for it

I've been helping PJ with this car and I will tell you, this thing is freakin mint. It's like a brand new car from the early 90s lol. Post up that engine bay!


Originally we were going to run his 12Js out back and 10s up front. The 12s poke quite a bit and the 10s rub the spring up front. We'll get it situated depending on which direction he wants to take it. I still think the 10s and 12s are possible, just need shorter springs up front and camber out back, and it's a done deal

thanks dude! if we can make the 10's work up front it'd be much easier than getting new lips for the back i'd assume? and let me know how the power steering rack situation works out for ya this week!

this is all i've got on the engine bay:

i wish i could afford a single turbo set up, they are so expensive for these cars unless you have the skills to fab one up yourself haha

and yeahhh they're actually my front wheels at the moment haha they fit nicely, but i'm hopefully going to make the 18x12's work the weekend of the 24th when i'm home again

I admire your testicular fortitude for holding on to this car. The quickest way to not have money is to own a 3kGT VR4. I have seen grown men reduced to tears because of this cars unreliability.

GREAT!!!! My Dad had a white stealth and white 3000GT in my younger years. Loved'em both. Wish we still had the GT, but life didn't allow him to keep that car. At any rate, yours looks good.

yeah sorry for the lack of updates! i came to the realization that i'd rather have my vr4 more driveable... my rear control arms were super close from hitting the body at this height, and i wasn't about to go chop this body up. too much sentimental value in this car to make permanent changes like that. my dream is to get another vr4 someday and make it an rwd drift tank, which is basically unheard of haha but for this car i wanna get a set of advan model 5's for it someday. i sold my coilovers and threw the stock ones with the lower springs in it so i could fund my new 240sx project for now. there will be more of this car someday though! next time around i'm gonna get the tien coilovers instead of the megans i think

haha this is so true. my dad and i finally found the culprit of my oil leaks, which of course was the rear valve cover, which required us to pull off the intake and a bunch of other stuff. and now my friggin cruise control stopped working this weekend haha i love the car to death but my god there's always something. that's why i wanna get another one to chop up and swap an ls1 or something crazy into it someday.
