Description
95 Base model converted to AWD Twin Turbo.

It was 2003 when I found the car on autotrader. I made the long drive to NC from TN to check it out. It was in almost perfect shape and as soon as I saw it I was sure I was going to buy it. I pretty much just drove it and kept it very clean for about 3 years, then made a big mistake and put a cold air intake on it. Any way little did I know I was going to join an internet forum in the near future. My wife ran the car through a big water puddle and I couldnít figure out why my piston skirt was hitting the crank lol. After I joined said forum I was informed the engine was hydro locked and the rod was bent. It was time for a new engine.

I found an engine in great shape and was back on the road. Then the modding bug bit me. I was doing everything in the NA upgrade bible and then a friend (DCIV) started talking me into doing the TT conversion. So about the time I got started he was telling me I should just buy a VR4 lol. I was attached to this car by then so there was no turning back. http://www.3sgto.org/showthread.php?...-TT-conversion I was very happy with my newly turbo charged car and stayed happy for about three years until I started having smoking issues. After a lot of research, troubleshooting and two turbos I came to the conclusion that blow by might be causing the problem. I had been gathering parts for a while to do an AWD conversion so I thought it was a good time to do it all. Engine build and AWD conversion. WOW what a lot of work it was. http://www.3sgto.org/showthread.php?...n-engine-build

I am now a proud owner of a twin turbo AWD 3000GT. I donít think there is a bolt I havenít turned or a part unmodified. Iíve had the car at BRG this year. Won best sounding exhaust with an open downpipe ha ha. Was able to run it up and down the Dragon (it did awesome) but unfortunately the fun was getting ready to end when I put it on the dyno. I did 292awhp @ 10psi on the 1st pull but my crappy LMI turbo blew on the 2nd pull. In just two weeks I will be installing brand new 19tís with the HL wheels and she will rise again.

Edit: New turbos 19THL are installed. Great turbos!
