Well since I finaly realized that my intro thread was turning into a build thread I figured I would do things the proper way.
1991 vr4 1865/2000 non sunroof
My plans are 400 ish hp, relocate the radiator forward 2-3 inches to accommodate room for a bigger turbo. Also have plans to upgrade bushing,suspension,coilovers exc. I'm swapping everything from my 93 talon to keep this peice of history alive.
Now onto the pics. Feel free to ask questions as I may fail to explain everything in the pics.


Kind of a standard modification if you own a vr4. A jdm bumper.

Time for cutting. FYI the front was damaged and needed to be removed anyways. If it wasn't damaged I Probably would have left the front core support alone.





Removed the front support after bending and welding in a new replacment.

Thanks:) and what I cut off compaired to what I welded in Is maybe 10lbs lighter. But the real reason I did this was to relocate the radiator.

Pulled the front subframe today. Getting ready to install poly bushings. While removing the frame one of the mounting bolts snapped off in the body:(. So looks like I will be ether drilling and re theading or cutting the head off of a bolt sticking it in the hole. (there's about 1.5-2.0" deep recess Before the threads start) and welding studs in.

Started the cleaning of the rear subframe and found out its bent at the mounting point.
It's also bent at the trailing arms mounting point. Minor setback since I can just use the talons subframe when the time comes to dismantle it.


Here is a pic of the straight side as a compairison.

Here's a pic of the front. I haven't cleaned the calipers Or rotors because I will be swapping them out for brembo rotors and race calipers.
I also removed the rear subframe from the talon. Ready for cleaning tomorrow.

Ready to install the Walbro 255 and found this shit!

The hanger is to rusted to use so I broke the fitting to hopfully save the hose. I then bead blasted the fitting and soaked it in PB blaster.
Looks like the hose will be ok.
Since the FP is toast I figured I would modify a 1g dsm hanger.






I had to cut and weld the hanger from the 1g to make it fit properly. Took 1 1/4" to match the stock hanger.

Nice work so far. Good to see a VR4 restored instead of scrapped!
