I never started a build thread for my other vr-4. So i'm starting a thread for it. No particular order just random things I make progress on as well as parts I day dream about

New Nardi wheel installed with JDM hub & 15mm special order spacer. It moves the wheel the perfect distance from the stalks as they tend to get in the way during spirited driving.



Earls Solo bleeder installed on the new slave.



Mitsu longer slave rod. Not much longer than the bendix/ japan unit. I think the dsm rod is even shorter?



Found some sweet high temp silicone vacuum caps. Don't use the crappy rubber ones you find at auto parts stores. They don't last.



Fresh oil change.



JDM golden key.

Very nice so far. You're right about the rubber plugs. I bought a pack and one lasted a few months on my intake manifold before it cracked causing a vacuum leak.

I'm so not surprised by the pink HKS oil filter.

The gold key is interesting, I like the rounded off Mitsu diamonds.

Exactly, they look fine installed because you can't see the cracks until you squeeze them. This after only a few months. They basically dry rot in the hot engine bay. Chinese rubber. Well no one will see the filter installed unless you get under the car and I have not found a use for the pink vacuum caps yet. They don't seem to fit anything under the hood. Though the green, black & light blue ones fit a lot of things perfectly.

I've never had an issue with hitting the stalks while autocrossing my car with the standard steering wheel spacing. And that's pretty spirited.

I have a Momo hub, then I got a NRG quick release, and then I couldn't even reach the signal light stalk any more. ahha....





So I'm playing with the combination of parts I've got which is a Works Bell hub, with Works Bell hub adapter (30mm)... but I think I need to just order a NRG short hub and maybe a 1/2" hub adapter to get the perfect distance.

Bruh, you driving with your chin? I think 15mm is perfect and wouldn't go any more than that.

The spacer I added is this section here in red. Otherwise the distance without it is stock.



Turd, I have the e39a specific works bell hub fs nib if you need one.

Have you tried JNZ I bought it years ago so I don't know if it's nla?

New rear calipers + solobleeders + brembo rotors. Been procrastinating for the last 10 years.

good choice on the brembo rotors. try giving those calipers a coat of paint, they rust up quick.

This is something that i need to do as well. I think over the winter i'll upgrade to outlander brackets/rotors and replace my calipers as well as rear rotors.
