xwire's 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4
I bought this 1993 3000GT VR4 Nov of 99 with just under 100k miles on it. I was very very happy with it and a week later sold my 70 1/2 Camaro as I felt I did not need it any more. After leaving it stock for the first year (besides the test pipe, boost, AF gauge, cold air intake and manual boost controller - so what I never leave things alone ;o)) I got the mod bug. After trying several "speed shops" here in St Louis I found that I knew more about these cars then they did (which was not very much at all). I did a lot of reading and learning. I took my car apart around November of 2001 to "just upgrade turbo's"... A year and a half later (right before the 03 NG, literally like the day of) I got it back together at that time with upgraded tod4's, a front mount, the full 99 conversion, new 99 red carcus paint, complete stereo, redone interior, and I am sure I am missing more. It has evolved several times since then into what you see here. The mod list is below and is pretty much where it is at right now, next month who knows :o) as I am constantly changing thing here and there...
