Description
I stripped this vehicle down to bare chassi and removed and reinstalled every panel, wire, module, nut and bolt. I learned a lot about the design and engineering involved with building a 3/S which was really cool. It was my intent when putting it back together to make future service and repairs much easier. A lot of time, money, effort, and energy was involved in the process. It's taken many years of trial and error to get it this far.

This, my toy, has several different looks and can be transformed within a few hours time to a race ready beast. I've custom built a removable 8-point bolt in cage with swing-out bars, modified the exterior panel pickup points for several variations of body panels, and modified/relocated the lower cross-member and engine stay supports for optimal drivetrain angle and roll centers. I've tuft wool tested all exterior panels and aerodynamic appointments to this vehicle and spent a lot of time manipulating the weight distribution to optimize the suspension and effective grip.

The fuel, cooling, and oiling heat exchange systems have been substantially upgraded and relocated to what I feel are more ideal locations and suitable levels given the modifications under the hood. For every little performance part there's an even smaller performance improvement supporting it on a micro level.

The vehicle has several different suspensions specifically engineered for specific tires, alignments, and aerodynamic applications based on where I want to drive. I basically bolt on what "look" I want, select a driving condition and fit a tire, brake, and suspension for the setup. I go with the flow for a little while and then change it up.

This vehicle is a mod feeder for performance enhancements on my other two 3000gt VR-4's. I basically buy something, bolt it on and if I like it I feed it onto my other vehicles.

I've put over 90,000 miles on it since completely overhauling the engine in 2008. I stripped the motor down this this past year to examine the condition of the engine, it's like it was the day I built it. The bearings look brand new.

The list of modifications is quite endless so the larger items are listed. Please feel free to ask me questions regarding my setup. I'll gladly explain how and why certain mods came to be. One quick fun fact, this is the first 3/S in the United Stated to be reclassified and Re-Titled as an Alternative Fuel Vehicle AFV.
