Looks great! Good job bro! I love these cars. I'm 22 started my project of restoring a VR4 3 years ago. I'm hoping to have mine on the road in a week. Hope you get a long life out of your build. Congrats!
Modifications as of 11/12/13:
3.01L, 0.020" pistons, forged crank, NA block, 13T turbos, K&N intake, CX Racing pre turbo pipes, SS Y-pipe, CX Racing oil cooler (mounted in front), SS oil cooler lines, SS oil feed lines, DNP precat deletes, ESP downpipe, test pipe, DSM SMICs, Ninja Performance boost controller, vacuum reduction, RPS Max Street, drilled/slotted rotors, Depo Racing gauges, custom leather seats, and MMCdroid OBDI-Bluetooth datalogging adapter. Everything built and done by me. As always, more to come soon.
Currently on the shelf: KYB GR-2 struts, Tein S-Tech lowering springs, ARC-2, 450cc injectors.
It is a 2 bolt block with a forged crank, stock rods, cast pistons 50 over. I think that makes me 3.1L? I would have liked to have gone more elaborate with the build, but the pistons and crank were free (to me anyway) and I needed to get the car on the road asap. Otherwise I would have gone completely forged and 4 bolt.
It might not be an amazing build to some who are completely forged and are pushing huge amounts of power but this was my first build and in my eyes it is incredible. The feeling of being able to drive around something that I created puts a smile on my face every time I get in the car.
