Default Lets get serious. Build Thread #2

Okay so we will start from beginning to end. This is my first 3/S. I fell in love with them in 01-02 when i was a child and we moved into a new house and neighbor across the street opened his Garage and all I saw was the ass end of a still very new, beautiful Red 99 VR4. Had no idea what it was or anything about it except that it was beautiful and I wanted one..

Heres the car how I got it (Pic from the craigslist add.) 99% stock. 1992 3000GT SL

Originally the car was Sand Stone Gray Paint, Glass Sunroof, Fully Loaded, Charcol Leather and gray interior. 1/16 according to 3/S storyteller. i plan to restore it to its normal self eventually.



Car was delivered for 1200$ (1000 for car plus 200)

It did not run. Sat for 3 years. It had a new motor out of a 93 SL that was wrecked (43k) the guy couldnt get the wiring figured out for the added crank sensor and different cam sensor.
I also got the old motor with the car (221K Jumped Timing). After getting the car i looked it over, spent a few mins on google, pulled the CAS off the original motor and installed it on the new one ripped all the added wiring out and put some gas in it and tried starting it. It had a rough start but after a few 2nds it revved up and was Cold Idling smootly. Not a tick or miss. Bled the clutch and drove it.

I was suprised because it just being a SL and FWD i thought itd feel like a heavy turd, spin tires everywhere and understeer horribly in hard cornering.. This was not the case. It was ballsy, it hard Grip, and cornering was Awesome. I was inlove all over again.

Fast forward first mods:

Painted Wheels



Cheapo 2.5" Intake Adapter and Filter + a little Paint.


3SX N/A downpipe. Eventually the rear manifold on it broke and so i had to weld it back on and I also modified it to fit up to a 3" Exhaust


Added somethings. Ghetto rigged up a Hard pipe, Breather filter, injector rail cover. And a nice shiney new Split Second Motorsports Radiator... Before they dissapered.


Powder Coated R/T TT wheels


i did some other things in the process. Fixed few broken thinngs, maintence, 60k. Replaced carpeting. Other misc stuff.



Door cuaght the fender randomly one day and the whole fender was FUBAR'd at that point. So i replaced it with a new one and tested my painting skills.

1st Dyno Session (Pre-TT manifold)


2nd dyno session (After install of TT Manifold)

Few months later moved to IL.







HID kit + Projectors.


Installed






Red Leather



Carbon Fiberrrr. I was bored lol.


ok well thats everyrhing for now. Questions? Comments?

I do alot of modding as I go... Dont really plan it... However I do want to go Turbo and I cant decide if im going Single r TT. Ill make my own manifold and downpipe if I go Single.

Things I do forsure want to do is Paint the car back to its stock.color and make it all look original. TT brakes, New wheels (18s) and maybe AWD conversion unless i find a awesome 99 SL/Base or a 1G VR4 in Sandstone gray. (that I can afford)

I'll leave you with this.

(Not street racing)

i had contemplated a single a lot but my wallet is keeping me n/a lol

for fwd a single makes more sense because you can keep boost lower to keep torque lower so your not spinning tire all the time. but still make a ton of horsepower up top, especially since supposedly we can rev out to 8k pretty easily

if I go single I will be making my own manifold and downpipe. This cut out most of the price because materials only run 150-200$ Max depending if u get fancy with clamps and what not. Most people sell manifolds for 800-1000+.

I if Im happy with the performance of such manifold. I could make them to order for about 350-400$. My design uses stock N/A manifolds and mounts the turbo inbetween trans and radiator.

i have seen singles put there, von morgan's car comes to mind

an idea i had was a rear mount turbo with one of those oil-less turbos and just have a second electric water pump with a rear radiator (lfa style) and rear intercooler

theres tons of room back there and the intake pipe can run right up the driveshaft tunnel and up to the intake mani

my school of thought would be to maximize power with minimum boost. our chassis is designed for rear biased awd but we only have fwd and traction is a huge issue when you have a lot of torque from high boost

I dont like the idea of rear mount turbo because I am very low to the ground. Plus the extra weight.

I plan on having the Turbo mounted between the trans and radiator if I go Single Turbo. This is my Daily Driver so I plan to have a conservative setup and run lower boost with Meth injection later on. As long as Im on 10:1 at least. Again thats if I go Single Turbo which I prefer but i like our Twin setup as well.

Alright well Sorry for the No-Posts for awhile. Ive been Busy at work and saving money because I decided to go the TT route. Ive already begun ordering.parts so ill probably post up some pictures in the next few weeks. However; had a few things i had to fix and still have to fix before I can REALLY start in on the TT project.

Really Im just waiting for the parts to come in

New Sunroof hardware from Mitsubishi
New Alternator
New Tires
New Pads and Rotors.

My setup will Stock 9Bs on 10:1 Motor.

Looking to run wastegate to start with, overtime I plan to add a Methonal System and slowly increase boost as i dial the car in. Planning to start the car off with a SAFC2 and Wideband but i will upgrade later.

Will not be running stock sidemounts. I plan to go a FMIC setup
