Little update:

Picked up 92 VR4 RS from Japan. This car is in storage in the UK for right now.

When she landed.



Started to clean her up. Engine bay lots of build up dirt from over the years. Took me 2 weeks to clean up.


New rear emblems.


First drive to MOT test. Passed with no issues at all.



First local meet.


149/1000 got a fresh clean and new floor mats.

Update on the green car. Car feels really bouncy when driving. So a plan on updating the suspension. New shocks and parts related. Swaybar rebuild front and rear. New bushings here and there. Car doesn't really need much else. It did have an idle issue when I got it. Found the ISC motor bad and ECU needed to be rebuilt. Few pictures of the parts I got so far.

G they are 0Z Racing Reps. Cant get the rear deal in 4 lug.

Update on shifter assembly rebuild. Made a massive improvement. No play at all. Replaced the pcs on the transmission too. Although the stock ones looked ok. Easy job though.

Base bushings wore out.

Got some new Nardi parts in. Steering wheel, VR6Eater shift boot and Shift knob. The shift knob sit to high with the stock shifter arm. I have a 1G unit coming. Should sit a lot lower.


Took the VR4 to another show. Japfest in UK. Had a great time.






Check out the video for more show footage.

Did these same replacements on my F5M33 transmission mated in the Colt, and it does make a huge difference in taking up all those little bits of play. They really do add up across the whole system.
However, a Mitsu trans only really shifts well once the shafts and fluid are all properly warmed up. Nice to see the attention to detail there!
