New owner of 814/2000

I am a DSMer at heart and own a 95 GSX 11 second car. I built that over the last 2 years and thought it was time for me to really dig in to the GSX so I was going to need a new DD. I searched and looked at other DSMs. Mind you my budget was only $2k, so a GVR4 was NOT something I could get into and if it was.. it was going to be a pile to say the least. After a few weeks I noticed a GVR4 for sale for cheap! I figured it was sold but sent a PM anyway. To my surprise it was not sold and I started asking more questions and for some pictures of said car. Was told it had a blown HG and was only running on 3 cylinders. I figured it was a simple fix for me so I went for it!

Well I picked it up 3 weeks ago in what I would consider good shape (nothing soap couldn't fix).

Three weeks ago when I picked her up...




Well turns out it was not the head gasket but burnt valves... Now I needed another head..



I replaced the head and the injectors due to #3 being faulty.. causing the valves to burn up.
Well after 3 weeks of work (lazy work mind you.. no more then 2 hours a day I don't think) it is finished!





Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do... Still cant believe I own a GVR4 lol

Thanks for the space!

Damn! She cleaned up nice. Could eat off that vc. Is this a non-sunroof? What other plans do you have for it?
 

It rides like a dream lol

Some minor scraches in the paint a few small tears in the rear seats. But overall she is in awesome shape. I am really suprised I got it for a cheap as I did.

I plan on keeping it bone stock. I have the GSX so no need to make my DD fast... I hope lol

And yes it dose not have a sunroof.. I dont like em anyways. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Congrats man! Looks really clean. Feels nice having a vr4 and knowing you cant afford one. lol I was the same, never thought i would ever own a vr4 til a friend gave me his unfinished project.

how much was it if you dont mind me asking?
 

I paid the asking price of $2k for it. And after $200~250 in parts its back on the road. All in all, not a bad deal IMHO.. Even the wife likes it, and that is crazy!

Welcome man! I paid 2000 for mine as well. It still needs a little help (check out the Groove in Timing Belt thread) but it'll get there I think soon enough. Very nice indeed!
