3000 GT VR4
Well it's a very unique story. Back in 2004, I wanted to get back into the import scene. I used to own a 93 Eagle Talon AWD Tsi and I enjoyed that heck out of it. So I figure it being years since I had the enjoyment of a turbo car. So the journey began. In which I originally planned on getting another Talon/Eclipse so I happen to come across one. Well, after a few email I found me a 98 Mits Eclipse GSX, so the deal was set. But on the day I was gonna meet the guy, he told me the car was in Tampa, FL. So, I'm like WTF. He was like it's in storage so I told him cool, I'll get back with you, but I never did. Now, with a pocket full of cash and no car I was piss. However, doing the process I actually came across my VR4 on autotrader while looking for the Eclispe. I always heard of the sleath but never the VR4. So, I went back to the autotrader and the VR4 I was looking at was gone. Dammmm. Well about 3 day later, I happen to pick up a local car sale paper. This ad catch my eye, it's listed 91 Mits VR4 w/ 62k miles, red. Well I call the guy and for some reason I felt it was the one I was looking at earlier. Well I went to the local dealer and sure enough it was the VR4 I was looking at. I was like DAM. I ask the guy when and where did he get it, but b4 he could say I said, u dont happen to get it out of Louisiana. He was like yes, my guy pick it up at a auction. I ask him if I could read back the Vin from the info I had he said yes, sure enough it was the same car. Plus, i remember it had Lake Charles, LA on the back. I couldn't believe, I was like man that's the same car I was looking at. Talk about destiny, my car found me. I remember in a movie when the guy said, a man dont choice a car, the car choices the man. So, I told the dealer, that I'll give him 8k right now, he was like Hell yeah, Dude should've got 4/5 more for the condition it was in. The car was dam near perfect. So, after getting I had the 60k maintenance done and drove her for 8 months that's when I some ask me if I mod it yet, I was like no. So, my buddy introduce me to a dude name Glen. Glen own local import performance shop. He use to have Sleath & eclispe. So, he did my first mod. BPU. Added 15g, DSMIC, 550 inj, ATR full exhaust, SAFC, Autometer Boost Gauge, A/F guage & HKS Dual CAI. It was set. Then after a year, I went to MIR and ran a 12.55 @ 115 then on the second run, BAMMM though a two rod. That's when I took her to 3sx(back when IPO) was there. Did a few upgrade. Then went back 1 /1/2 later and got thier TDO5 set up. I was the thier first custom with that. Then about 2 yrs later went back and got their Big Baller Turbo and a few other goodies. So, for the past 9 yrs I've being though alot but if I had to do it all over again i wouldnt change one thing. Well Thanks for checking out my baby.
