    1994 3000GT VR4 $9000 obo

    1994 $9000 obo

    Name: Kenny Houseal
    Location: Royersford, Pennsylvania 19468
    Contact Info: kennyhouseal@hotmail.com

    Year: 1994
    Make: Mitsubishi
    Model: 3000GT VR-4
    Color: Black
    Mileage: 152xxx
    Transmission: Manual

    Price: $9000 obo

    Description: Shopping around for an Evo X for practicality reasons, not in any rush to sell. Still love the car, and drive it nearly every day (don't expect the miles to stay where they are). I still owe the bank money (financing an older used car is stupid, don't do it), so I don't have the title in hand. Title is at my local bank, so I can get it within a day or so (their claim, not mine) if you deposit what I still owe at the time of purchase. I can take cash, cashiers checks, or a personal check if you're willing to wait for the check to clear.

    This car is extremely reliable, and it has never needed major repairs, just preventative maintenance. 120K was completed before I purchased the car with OEM parts at a dealer. I'd trust this car to drive across the country as much as I trust it to start every time to take me to work.

    I will include any specialty tools for the car (RB Pressure Tester, Broomfield T-Belt Tensioner Tool, Logger, etc.) so you'll be ready to roll.

    Good:
    UNDENTED OIL PAN
    Factory maintenance recommendations followed (using Castrol GTX 10w-30, Redline MTL/MT90 for the trans, MT90 for the t-case)
    Leak free transfer case, thanks to Mitsubishi
    New power steering rack (1.5 years warranty left or so)
    Almost all of the useless features still work, active aero works, all wheel steering works, ECS works, active exhaust doesn't.
    Relatively new clutch (replaced right before I bought it, so it has 18k)
    Transmission shifts as smooth as butter
    Hybrid ECU logger cable and software will be included ($150 value, will throw palm pilot in for an extra $50)
    New Valve Stem Seals, Cam seals, valve cover gaskets, lifters, and oil pan dent removal/inspection work done by Pampena Motorsports
    New timing belt tensioner (old one was damaged)
    Braided SS lines for the oil cooler
    Brand new front ball joints
    New Transmission linkage
    No collision damage that I'm aware of
    Interior is nearly perfect, driver's side seat is worn on the upper bolster. Everything else is 9/10 on the interior
    Dunlop Star Specs, not many miles, low tread wear. One tire was replaced because of a nail, and shaved 1/32" to match to ensure that there were no issues with the VCU
    Current PA inspection, passes emissions and safety inspections with flying colors.
    New Accel spark plug wires, with factory style boots to seal crud out of the spark plug holes
    New NGK plugs
    New Carrier Bearings
    New Lower Control Arm Bushings
    New Mitsu Radiator Cap
    New '99 Lifters
    No turbo shaft play
    Aftermarket sound system (Eclipse CD-2000 HU, Polk Audio component speakers)
    Un-Bubbled door panels
    No body rust (besides some surface rust on the frame rails)
    New PCV valve and hoses (thanks Keyan!)
    New alignment, car tracks straight and doesn't have any odd tread wear.

    Mods:
    3SX y-pipe w/ silicone couple & t-bolt clamps (easily holds 20+psi)
    New Carbotech unslotted front rotors (good condition stockers that need cut can be included)
    IPS downpipe (ripped the stock DP in half, had to replace)
    modified eBay header (rewelded and tweaked to fit, still too close to the rubber IC hose, so it needs wrapped)
    Hot wired factory fuel pump
    Hawk HPS pads all around
    DDM 35W 4500k HIDs w/ high beam (clear lens) mod
    Accel 8mm spark plug wires
    JDM injector cover from a 3.5L

    Bad:
    Shocks have 152k on them, not blown, but soft
    Very minor leak from rear main seal or trans. No drips as of late, it's just slimy inside the bellhousing.
    Puffs of oil if you leave it idle for a long time
    A/C didn't work on really hot days.
    Active exhaust valve is stuck in "sport" The less restrictive mode.
    Assorted door dings, and rock chips. PDR should be able to take car of the door dings, and I'll probably have it done soon.
    Right side wheels are very slightly bent, no vibration, and it can be aligned and what-not.
    ABS doesn't work, one or more of the sensors needs cleaned, but I didn't want to risk damaging them. The light burnt out a while back, so I pulled the bulb and didn't replace it.
    Rear interior panels are bubbled in the heat of summer.

    Hmmm.... If my car does get sold for what I want... I hope this car is still available. I've been looking for a clean well maintained black 2g.

    I'm going through a maintenance spree in the next few months to correct any issues. I'm going to have it PDR'd and have some paint corrective detailing work done to clean it up
