BIG thanks to DSMpurity for making Samara Ride of the Month for Feb 2013 =) click

Well Turns out the rear visor held on with only 3M double sided tape doesnt stay glued on the bottom, so I bought a real OEM Mitsu one from Oldman_Tau with the little clips that fasten it on the windshield and double sided tape of course, finding a real one like this is a rare as hens teeth as my friend Rob Ritchie would say haha

well thats awesome, your car looks great. cant wait for it to be nice enough to work on my car again, i have large piles of parts all over my house for 2 of the VR-4's and now for the eclipse as well and the lady is ok with it, but you can tell its starting to get to her. whole basement is covered in parts, our spare room is now a parts and tool warehouse, bedroom is covered in exhausts and the kitchen table has leaking pumps and such on it.

haha thats badass, my place was like that right before i threw in the built motor and all the other parts around it. Every time my chic was there she would be all careful while walking around because off all the VR4 parts i had laying around haha.i think the biggest space takers are the bumpers though, i kinda put those up against the walls and start to lay things on it haha.

Got a bit more progress done this weekend, got my HID Ballasts all tucked away finally instead of just chillin in the engine bay haha






Also started mounting the BulFab Crossemember, we had to cut down the north/south bars about 2 inches in order for them to fit properly.








and finally fixed my oil leak, somehow my old front main seal was toast so we replaced it with a new one. =)







and a nice close up of the Break In Turbo





It'll be pushing it real close but Rob is trying to have it done in time for TX2K13.

Thanks man, After I get The fab work done and new fan wired up I'll post pics of the whole thing, and that's just a cheapo eBay 35R it's just on there for the break in until I save up for a top mount manifold and an HTA 3794R.

Rather than tuck those ballasts away like that, you should have thrown them in the trash and reinstalled some halogen bulbs.

I really liked the BullFab parts. It's too bad they don't fit right. Did you email/call them to try and see what the deal was?

Haha yeah, a friend of mine had it and offered to sell it to me for like 400 bucks during the install on the built motor so i figured why not. and yeah it's a BB one. That's the plan though is to just use it for break in and some abuse, till I get the real deal later.


Quoting LIV4PSI:

Yeah I gave him a call and he was surprised they didn't fit and he said he was sorry and offered to fix it for free but I told him don't worry about it and since I'm kinda pressed for time I'll just fix it myself. Everything fit fine minus the two north south bars.

Everything fit fine? It was a 3 piece kit, and 2 pieces didn't fit

Glad to hear the customer service was decent though.

Eh I'm used to it, been living here most my life man. Lots of people also thought I was crazy for wanting to drive my VR4 from California to the Shootout In Norwalk Ohio too. Lol


Quoting MellowVR4:

You just cut where the existing welds are, 2 inches shorter. You have to use mild steel to weld it with though, that's what he told me.
