History
My first car. I spent a lot of time and money making her look good and perform well.....then she hydrolocked.

After 6 months of waiting on a shop to do a 6G74 swap, a good friend of mine was rear-ended in his pristine '91 VR4 with LOOOOTS of work done to it.

So, I bought his totaled car, took em both to Ground Zero Performance, and a week later had a TT FWD 16T car with a 1,500 mile (bought new by the VR4 owner a few years ago and barely driven) JDM 6 Speed, 1,500 mile heads and 1,500 mile turbos. Basically, a brand new car. It made 280whp/293wtq on 93 at GZP, then my friend and I tuned it to be a little over 300whp. The stock injectors ran out of fuel, otherwise it coulda been a lot higher. Some DSM 450CCs are coming in the near future :)

I then swapped his entire red/black cloth interior and used every bit of that car that I could. I even swapped over the front brake calipers (though I already had VR4 front brakes), keeping them white as a small tribute to the white VR4 that made the swap possible!
