Finding the Car

A few days ago I stumbled upon a 3kgt vr4 while visiting a buddies shop.
Its a little beat up, but nothing severe. Engine is pulled but is freshly rebuilt , with the stock td04 turbos freshly rebuilt as well.


This project won't take a full start for a few months , so be looking out in the near future for one fast paced turnaround of this mistreated beast.

Bud I'll get some more this week, I just took a quick picture.

Boosted its at quick check auto, I guess the previous owner couldn't pay to finish it.

It's pretty trashed , but were gonna repaint it , redo the interior , clean up the engine bay, etc.
I'll probably leave the power steering and a/c in this one LOL

Plans are to fully restore it , I want it looking clean and respectable. Not gonna do anything too crazy with her because she needs some care first. Has 130k on the odometer , but it's been sitting in that spot for a few years , so I'll have to see if there is any rust.

The reason I'm not starting work on this for a few months , is because in all honesty I don't know jack squat about the power plant, I'm gonna take my time , research , research and research some more so I have a good understanding of what I wanna do and how I want to do it. Vr4s are hard to come by, especially in my area, I want this thing rocking the streets in a orderly fashion , not just thrown together.

If you don't mind my asking, how much did you end up paying for it?

3k gt's are the reason that I own a mitsu car. Looked for my GSX for 5 years and found it (still working on it) Still looking for that special 3k VR4. Probably another couple years.

Fiji Blue is definitely a beautiful color. You will quickly discover the many similar and interchangeable parts between a 3/S and DSM hehe.

Bet that's a screamer of a vehicle with that twin turboed 6G72 DOHC pumping out close to 400HP out of the factory...

The older ones like his/mine don't even put out 300HP from the factory.

They still move pretty good though.

nice car! don't let the power of a 1G on stock turbos demotivate you with worries it will be slow!

my 1G put down 346whp on 9B's + pump gas.

Mods are BOV
Downpipe
MBC
K&N Intake
Y-Pipe

Just threw some timing at it, and upped the boost. no fuel control

10.3 AFRs @ full boost of 17 psi. room for more power!

Good luck!
