Kevin,

The VR4 looks sick as always. Yours has always been one of my favourite cars on the board. It was my inspiration for picking up quite a few parts over the years and I hope you will take it as somewhat of a compliment if my other car eventually ends up looking not too dissimilar to yours.

Paul.

Dang Paul...thanks man for the compliment, even though I still think we got some better GVR4's on this board.

Though its cool to have your work appreciated

Though I got a few more things I want to do exterior wise then I am done..which is a RS vented hood, Eterna grille, new wheels, and new paint then I think I am done with the exterior mods. After that..I can concentrate on rebuilding a new motor. The GVR4 is just going to be a weekend car.

Haven't updated the progress made so here is some

No longer running a Evo 3 b16g and upgraded to a FP Red. Required me to upgrade a few things and redo my intercooler piping. Here I did the final mock up of the new i\c setup.




February was my bday and my best friend got me 3kgt vr4 calipers


And my bday gift from the wifey


Finally mounted my battery box.




New DP to go with my victory performance O2 housing.

Quoting 4Grim:






What happened to the AMG wing? Anyways, the car looks great and it's one of my favorite NB on the board.
Keep up the great work.

My best friend is repainting it for me and doing it the right way.

When I got it painted years ago...i had a shop that bought parts from the Toyota dealer i used to work for. He offered to paint it free for helping them get their parts., but realized they did a shitty job.

Changed up the fuel system a lil bit and mounted and installed a triple core civic radiator which came out pretty clean imo. Waiting for a few more pieces and should be ready.

nice! I have a triple core 1/2 radiator in mine too, car runs a lot cooler than it did with the full sized dual core it had on it when I got it, you'll like it, Im sure. I have mine mounted a little different than yours, but it works well all the same. Cant wait to see it finished! Keep up the good work!

Shot a 2nd vid today..seems it wont idle on its own unless I push on the gas pedal. FIAV is eliminated but never had this issue before the car before it went down with idling and had the FIAV removed 2 years prior.

Well after I got the Gvr4 running again...I had to repair a massive coolant leak on our Montero and the A/C compressor for my house decided to take a dump too. Been staying at my bro in laws house till I got the compressor replaced on our a/c unit and fixed the Montero. Luckily had the weekend off so decided to put some work on the GVR4.

After I got it running the main issues I had was it wouldn't idle on its own and it had a misfire and wouldn't rev past 4k. I finally had some time to diagnose the issue and finally install the front bumper, my BoostX front lip and AMG corners and rewired the bulb sockets for dual filament turn and driving lights.








Now with the idle and misfire issue and not able to rev past 4k....well found out the black ground pin on the MAFt plug was not making full contact to the Galant harness plug. Once I pushed the pin in..the car ran better and it was attempting to try to idle on its own. After messing with the settings on the MAFt and adjusting the BISS and CAS timing I got the car to idle on its own constantly. It needs more fine tuning but for now at least its idling.

Got it idling..but before adjusting

Got it idling somewhat decent

very nice car! all around, just a beautiful ride.

please take the MAF-T and throw it in the trash... invest in V3, tune it on speed density with the 4 bar Omni sensor, and call it a day. you will be so happy you did! no more fighting with the damn MAF-T. the car will run a world better.

I am looking into upgrade to DSMlink V3 probably late next year. I would like to do a couple upgrades to the suspension first before going that route but its a definite modification in the near future.
