I picked this car up last year from the previous 452 guy on the forum. What a nightmare and lies i was told. im not here to flame him. I joined the forum to gain knowledge for the vr4 in an attempt to get it to the "reliable" state that i was told it was in. So far I've properly removed the rear steering and lines and swapped the steering rack for an eclipse one, the one on it had leaky bolts screwed in the rear steering ports and the passenger inner tie rod was about to fall out, since I have a few parts from my old 92 gsx but thats another story. Swapped the rear for a 4bolt lsd which made a huge difference. There are so many fluid,exhaust,water leaks on the car its a nightmare, which i was told it only had a small oil leak. I bought this as an alternative to buying an evo 8. I figured what I would pay for an evo I can invest into this car. It also has a serious random electrical issue or two rather: the battery randomly dies and everytime I start the car I have to rev it above 3k rpm to get the alt. to "kick on" or it will not produce more than 11.2 volts. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead.gif I do that just about everytime I go to start it or work on it. Any advice or info with some of my issues would be helpful. I don't need flaming I know there is a search button and I plan to use it and gain as much info as I can. I'll post more as I can think of other nightmares I have lol. Thanks.
