My Story:

Hello everyone! My name is ALan and this just happens to be my beloved second 3/S. I was pulled into this crazy obsession during my first year of college in Fall '06 when I purchased my first 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT Base DOHC 5-SP. It wasn't long before I became more involved with SoCal3S and 3Si. It was a long, eventful year full of experiences and memories. Sadly, I ended up selling her to focus more on my studies and other priorities.

A year passed on and I had just sold a project DSM that I was able to enter the world of turbocharging with. One evening in Fall '08, I was browsing the local classifieds and stumbled upon a well-maintained and lightly modified 1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 with 112,652 miles. After a few phone calls and meeting in person, I decided to take the risk and stepped up to owning a high-maintenance sports car that I was already familiar with. Boy was I in for one hell of a ride...

It has been 11 months since then and I cannot believe how much time, effort, pain, and money has been put into this machine in such a short amount of time. My mindset for this car has always been "Function Over Form" and so I have always been aiming for pure performance. I figured that I would rather have more "go" than "show" since these cars are already damn sexy as-is. I still cannot fathom the countless number of hours that I have spent researching and wrenching to become more knowledgeable to the 3/S platform.

Currently, I have her tuned for 17psi on pump-91 with fully rebuilt TE04H-13C turbos that I removed and reinstalled myself. In fact, all work and tuning has been done by yours truly. It is the primary reason that I chose to modify this car. I wanted that sense of accomplishment and pride, and I believe that I have found it in this rare beauty!

I hope to pass on everything that I have learned to help the community who helped me to begin with.
