My Project Car 56k beware

Here is my 95 VR4

I purchased the car on January 18, 2007 as the 4th owner at 94k miles. I actually count myself being the 3rd since the previous owner only owned it for 2 months. It was all stock except it had an FIPK, Turbo XS tiny BOV for a 2.0 and Thruxton TSW 18x8's wrapped in Toyo Proxy 4's. After noticing that I had a bov that was make for smaller displacement vehicles, I quickly replaced it with a HKS SSQV the following day. I then ordered an SBC iD EBC then a Tanabe SHM and Tanabe downpipe. A month later my second gear synchro went out. And I rarely drove that car again til about a little over a year later. Where it under went extensive modifications and started running in mid July of 2008.

I recently just sold my EMU, exhaust, dp, and sidemounts since I wont be needing them anymore. My car is currently down since I have started another project, building a block and camming it.

Engine:

K&N FIPK
HKS SSQV
DSM 2G SMIC
Hardpipe Kit (definately not DNP, had to cut every single pipe and had to get some extended.)
Flex-A-Lite Fans puller
DBB DR-1000's (comparable to GT32's)
Tial Leaded Wastegates
DR T3/t4 Headers Coated
DR O2 Housings Coated
EGR Plates
Krank Vents
Tanabe SHM Catback
Tanabe Turboback Downpipe w/ Tanabe Testpipe


Fuel:

Aeromotive FPR
Aeromotive Fuel turtle
PTE 780cc
Twin Walbro Fuelpumps Hardwired


Drivetrain:

MP Solid Engine Mounts
MP Transfer Case Bracket
SCE Shiftforks
SCE Synchros
PO Machine Bellhousing Beef Up Plate
Quadco Output Shaft
ACT 3 Pressure Plate with Spec Stage 5 iron disk

Brains/Interior:

E-Manage Ultimate w/ Injector Adapter, Pressure Sensor and Harness,
LC-1 Wideband
Blitz SBC-iD
Defi Gauges Red Racer Pressure, Pressure, Temp. (water,oil press, fuel press)
Defi Peice of Crap A/F gauge hooked to analog 2 of LC-1






















here is a size comparison.

Below is my friend's turbonetics t70 on the right and my aftermarket one on the left. and I've got 2 of these in my car for those that didn't know vr4's were twin turbo


here is his T70 next to a stock turbo on the right

It is a pain in the fricken butt to work in the engine bay. Sometimes it is really really stressful. My arms gets all these cuts and scrapes. But in the end it is fun once I get to put all that power to all four wheels

ahhhh ok. I've been told a 44mm tial would be fine with race gas, but I would run the risk of clogging the 38mm tial ewg I have on my car.

not many people know that the vr4 is twin turbo. and there are some single turbo vr4's out there running gt35's-gt42's

yes I have two and no i am not lying or anything. thank you for making sure people know that vr4's are in fact twin turbo. you truly are a car guru. I will ask you for facts next time I run across a problem. Thanks.

Have a nice day.
