    1995 Yellow VR4 Billet GZP747 Build

    We got this from car Hellbringer quite a few months back, after this whole to-do (long story). Drove down to NC and trailered it home. I think this was back in September...?? Maybe early October... something like that.

    Anyway, it's been sitting in a corner ever since with a blown engine and blown turbos (which were a bit of a surprise, but, we weren't expecting a gem). We ran into some title issues, because the company that re-po'd the car, never actually applied for a title

    I have FINALLY been able to track down a company that can get a title for me So... we began the tear down.

    We knew it had a whole bunch of modifications:

    3SX Executioners (we aren't 100% sure that's what they are)
    Stillen DP
    JIC EXhaust
    Greddy Emanage Blue
    Arc2
    Granitelli (spelling??) MAS
    Greddy E01 Boost Controller
    RPS Clutch
    680cc injectors
    I believe a Walbro Fuel Pump.

    So... we pulled the cylinder heads off... and lo-and-behold, forged pistons That was a pleasant surprise for sure! We're pulling the guts apart to see what else is in there (maybe some forged rods?!) So, we'll be rebuilding this engine when time allows.

    Pictures to follow as we progress with the tear down and rebuild

    Interested in selling the arc2 or possibly doing a trade for my Maftpro....kind of considering ditching my Speed Density setup and going back to Arc2 until I learn to tune better. PM me if we can work something out

    We'll be putting the arc2 back in to the car with the new set-up. Nothing out of it is currently for sale.

    Yea, it ended up being a lot more work than we initially thought. Fortunately though, we were planning on doing a build... this just gave us an excuse to do a little BIGGER of a build...

    I remember seeing this car long time ago on 3si for sale. Nice project choice though... For some reason I love the factory yellow. You just plan on rebuilding the executioners or what?
