    well its been a while. Just so happens that everything i ordered had to be back ordered. but slowly ive been boxes of stuff so heres where im at now









    Okay sorry for the slow updates. Ive been pretty busy and have only put in 2 hours here and 2 hours there well i got the rest of my parts.

    The 3SX turbo kit went pretty well. It is a very tight fitment with little room to work. I have absolutely no complaints about it but a few small issues i can deal with. The front and rear engine hoist brackets need to be modified to fit. Theres a little hole in the precat where it was welded and ground on the inside. (im just going to tac weld it my self) The oil lines wernt to bad and fit good for me. The rear oil feed was a little tight but i was able to make a little more slack by swapping the low pressure sensor with the oil feed line. (not pictured) I thought it was going to come with a second oil banjo bolt for the rear. I dont know if i didnt get one or they dont use them anymore. When people say put it all together loosely before tighten it down they mean it. The fronts not bad but the rear was a PITA to bolt the precat on and wastegates. The rear wastegate was touching the valve cover so i had to give it a little persuasion. I also had to clock the wastegate so that the banjo was not against the valve cover. ( I dont know if this is normal or not) Well the engine is 90% built just waiting on my rear cam gear from TGE. Heres a few pictures

    Get coil overs.... You are going to spend 10k on your build but you are only going to spend 250 dollars on some springs, you are obviously looking for a well rounded car but your brakes and suspension are basically going to be stock.

    Cant wait to see the finished product, though, its awesome you have such a NICE car to start with, that's one of the reasons I bought my VR-4, a very solid base to build on, well taken care of, records, low miles.
    93 R/T - Modded, Full Suspension, Full Exhaust, Quaife Diff, Turbo brakes, Alpine/Boston Sound One of 25
    98 VR-4 - Billet 13t's, Downpipe, Blitz EBC, Ohlins R/T coil overs, SCE center differential, SCE oil pan, Pampena braced trans, TEC Rear Strut Bar, Custom Front Strut Bar, Camber Arms, Alum Driveshaft, 2" Koyo, Maximal oil cooler, SAFC2, Defi Gauges, RC 550's, Supra Pump, Skillard Splitter, Hardpipes, XYZ 14" front brakes/Carbotech, 255 Dunlop Z2's, AMR 18x9's, Alpine/Infinity/JL Sound. One of 13

    3SNG15 Best overall

    well i was kind of waiting to get numbers before updating but its taking me longer to get to the dyno than i thought. my goal is 600ish on pump+meth. the cars been running and runs great. i love the 8.5:1 and 16g's its a nice combo. still have some bottom end. Im almost completely done with the build and how i want it.Ill post more pics and verbiage as time goes on. i just needed to do this for motivational purposes
