My story:

For as long as i can remember i've loved these cars. So it was only natural when i turned 17 to buy a 3000. I owned a 92 non turbo for a few years and in that time i purchased a 1991 vr4 and slowly modified it until this year. This year the motor came out for a complete rebuild with all the bells and whistles giant turbo's, built motor and everything else. i had spent the better part of the year slowly gathering a garage full of parts to put on the car and was all ready for assembly when a customer at work (pampena motorsports) wanted to sell his 1994 vr4. Being that it had the same exact setup that i was going to put on my car, had half the miles, was the SAME COLOR and was worked on only by the guys at the shop it was a no brainer. The car was mine!! Immediately me and my brother (who also shares my screen name) began to transform the car from a 100% stock looking 1994 to the car you see before you. everything was taken out of the interior and replaced with mint pieces(door panels, pillars, console, boots etc etc), the entire body suffered from faded paint and was hand polished by myself, wheels and suspension were transfered from my 91 along with a 99 conversion and many other misc pieces. as of right now i am in the process of reworking all of the intercooler and intake pipes with larger 2.25 hot and 3.5 inch cold side and 3 inch intake pipes, the pictures below are before the new pipes are gonna be going on. in the past week 11/25 i lost the rear turbo and had the chance to upgrade to a pair of GT35r's, i'll be installing them as soon as the rest of my parts come back from powdercoating. also coming out is the POS 6 speed and being replaced with a 25 spline 5 speed w/300m shaft and bellhousing brace. as she sits she is currently making 650 awhp on low boost, if i'm finished with the upgrades planned by the end of december/beg january the car will be making in excess of 1000awhp.
