Hi, I am 239/1000
picked up a Kensington grey vr4 a couple of weeks ago.
incomplete car, had to undo alot of ghetto rigging and redo alot and put alot back
together. all in all its an awesome car.
16g turbo, big front mount, agx adjustable with h&r springs, boost controller, 3 inch turbo back w divorced wastegate, 2g mas.
thats about all i can tell from it. i dont know what else the previous owner did to it or put into it.

Welcome aboard! Please send the badge and VIN to iceman69510 on the board, so he can update the registry. Thanks!



I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

I just switched from my stock 15" wheels to some 17" wheels today.
Looks pretty darn good, but killed all the response.
I will get pics in the morning.

15 inch wheels are awesome for acceleration, they handled ok, looked very late 80's
New 17 inch wheels look much more updated but acceleration suffers.

I guess I could describe the wheels.
They are actually the first set of wheels I have paid retail for.
MSR 113 17x7 40mm offset with 225/45/17
The wheels are 20lbs without the tires.
There were lighter wheels, but I only paid a hundred bucks each wheel, some of the lighter wheels
I looked at would have ran me close to a thousand bucks to purchase them online and have them shipped.
Didnt want to spend that much on a car I only drive in winter.

You have a 3kgt also? Did you upgrade the turbos? Your name seems familiar. I might have sold you some 13g turbos many years ago.

@iceman are you able to give us the vins of the 9 vr4's that were OG in AK? @songsay from my count theres 5 AK vr4 owners on this board, the one that hasn't posted or doesnt frequent this board is CupaJoe, he left for Airforce BMT and I believe he's in techschool now. But yeah its nice to see fellow AK VR4 owners coming out of the woodworks. A meet is most definitely on the way, well I won't be there until this deployment is over.

Organize a meet? You guys should get together and do the ALCAN in a Galant.

That.
Would.
Be.
EPIC.

I would chip in a couple bucks towards the endeavor. Probably wouldn't be the only one, either.

I'm definitely down for a meet this summer. If I had the time I would be down for driving the Alcan. Would just have to remember jack stands, my car really seems to like them.

Well lets just say we drive from Anchorage to Seattle, lets remember that is only half the trip.
We would still need to drive home. I would opt for the ferry through the inside passage.
I have done that drive 4 times. lots of washboard dirt road.
Three times in my 1990 honda accord and once in my 3000gt.
Well the 3000gt was most epic, that was 8000 miles in one month.
from Houston Texas all the way up the west coast, through Canada and then to Anchorage.

Not so sure I want to deal with the short gearing of the Galant, nor the drone of the exhaust.
3000gt is a hiway star, nice long gears for those lonnggggg stretches of nothing.

A drive from Anchorage to Seward would be cool.
Even better would be Crow Creek road, its all dirt for mile and miles and it is very twisty.
It would be like WRC.

A summer cruise sounds cool. I'll be spending most of the summer at the drag strip in Palmer (trying to go fast), and hitting up every autox event, and try rallycross.

There are four diff groups that hold autocross events, as far as I know.
Sports Car Club of America, Sub Zero Motorsports, Alaska Sports Car Club, Porsche Club

Me and the woman were involved in SCCA, We did every autocross event, many rallycross and a few road rally.
We got burnt out and this season we did none of them.

Different folks in each particular group. So you can try each one and decide what you like better.
