Here's a link to a quick video a buddy made for me. click Traction issues (best 1.80 60') and a bit of knock up top held the car back a bit.

After those track passes, I got some tuning time. Rolled on around 460whp at 27-28psi. Ended up with 508whp, 394tq at 31psi. I'm hoping to turn the boost up more, mess with the cam gears, and maybe swap from M1 to M5 methanol to get closer to 560-570whp. If that doesn't work, it's probably destined to get a 6262 turbo. Hope you all enjoy! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I found some old assembly pictures I might as well put up. Sorry in advance, a lot were taken by phone on the fly.

First fitment of BBS Evo wheels and RE070 tires.

Oil pressure gauge and Meth tank where the ABS was.

Sweet Exedy Hyper Twin. I have since bought a spare, but I love this clutch.

I made a short throttle cable from part of the shortest cruise control cable. And a custom mount to my TB because the SMIM was originally setup for an LS1/Northstar throttle body.

This was mock-up of the round foglights. I liked them better, and I sold of the mint stock ones for go-fast parts.

This was the building at JMFabrications for the one-off topmount T3 manifold. (Old Bullseye S262 BW)

I think that's it that I have pics of. I never took pictures of the front bumper support brackets I made for the fogs and intercooler. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif Maybe next time the front bumper is off. The newest stuff is at the top of the page. These old pics have been over the last 4-5 years of owning the car. Hope you enjoy!

Got some work done on the rear end yesterday. I finished a hitch after being inspired by James' thread and built a lightweight rear bumper support to get rid of the rusty/heavy stock one.

I have had this battery relocation built since I first put the car together, but I guess never took pics of it. It uses a 51 Series Honda sized battery. I am currently using an Optima Yellowtop. Starts all year, and with the Saturn alternator, it has never given me a problem. Plus it's hidden like a factory battery would, and since it's a sealed battery, doesn't NEED a vent to the outside. SHH! I don't have a cut-off, but have never had a problem in tech at the track. So keep it down!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif






And a shot of the Sub box just for fun.

After a long hiatus of working way too much, and a lot of other projects going on, I'm happy to say that the VR4 will get a little love and miles again this coming year. Have a Track Claw brake kit to install, some of the last of the EBC rear rotors/caliper rebuild, and a re-tune after the Caddy gets off the rollers in March. Buddy hooked me up with an awesome Zaklee timing belt cover in neon green over the holidays, so that will be going on as well.

Wheels are going white, as I love the monochrome look, and she'll need a set of tires by the end of the season.
