Since the VR4 hasn't gotten a lot of his time with him being busy I'm taking over this project. I want to see this VR4 back out on the road again. I know I'm going to have many many questions along the way. So any advice other than walk away will be appreciated.

Thanks I'll take some pictures this afternoon and get them up. I'll write up a bio for the car as I know it and post that as well since perhaps a few would be interested in the history of this car.

Alright, ill be the one that asks... what's with the name? Most females on here pick a girly name. Then again it took me a little while to realize biglady was a guy, I must be slow. Oh yeah, welcome to the board. Super amazing people here, even the gray haired ones.

It is the way they shortened the nickname I was given long ago in Junior ROTC (High School Sophomore year). They decided it was good nickname when I was in a creek up to my waist wrestling with a guy twice my size for this little football flag in a game called escape and evasion. Guy actually thought I would freak out about getting covered in mud when he tried knocking me to the bank to get my flag, I had his flag up and showing the referee we had that I had it before he knew it was over. I just can't pick a girly name just not in my nature. A different screen name would probably have something to do with my SV or something like that.

Wow, You'd be able to knock me over with a feather if one of my significant others washed my car let alone took on the "project" Kudos to you

welcome to the board, you will find much great info about these little gems here & I have to say some of the best technical knowlage in the 4g63 world. I hope you enjoy your new found project & your stay here.



How do you make a small fortune racing? Start with a very large one!!!

This should hopefully be a simple project when compared to rebuild of the totaled SV650. The goal is to get this car done by next year. My simple goal is running and holding boost, no wastegate fluttering and perhaps full operation of the AWS system. I'm glad to say if I need help from a Mitsu Master tech my best friend is one so I don't have to worry about over my head issues. I foresee the worst part of the project being body work on the roof.

Project gets to wait a week while everything gets settled down. My mechanic will be dropping off my Isuzu Rodeo for me to detail before the engine goes back into it and picking up my Dodge as the top of the fuel pump is melted perhaps a localized fire or heat from the pump it's self. My brother in law is moving up here today and he's towing his Jetta TDI which has dark colored smoke coming from it's exhaust and a loud noise from the engine, I'll assume catastrophic engine failure and price and source a new engine. I swear if it's not one thing it's another around here. I also need to send the turbo for the VR4 in and have it rebuilt it looks like the wheel ate something.

Well after listening to the Jetta in person I'd swear the TDI has a misfire. So I'll assume it's most likely an injector issue and until it is off the tow dolly I can't do more.
