Just wanted to say hello. I just purchased my first Mitsubishi! It’s a 1993 3000GT VR-4. Dark green and loaded! I think they only come loaded.

Anyways, I have been reading many threads on this site and it looks as if many of you are very knowledgeable and are quick to offer good advice. I’m sure I will be needing plenty.

My VR-4 is not without it’s problems. It has 113,000 miles and I got it for $5,400. The rotors in front are warped (just ordered a set) and the bearings that hold the center drive shaft in place are also shot. Ordered them too. Also, there is light damage to the front bumper assemble and small chips and scratches throughout. The trans is new and it runs great.

I am fairly literate around cars. That is to say, I have been around highly modified vehicles for years. But I never owned a car as complex as the VR-4 so needles to say I’m a tad intimidated. But I think I got a great deal and it’s not my daily driver so I’m looking forward to building it up and stomping on some Hondas!

I need to get an owners manual and a shop manual. Can anyone recommend a source?

Well, like I said, I just wanted to introduce myself to you all and say hello.

Go to manualcd.dsm.org if you want a manual. They can be hard to find.

You can buy mine if you want for half of whatever it costs (don't remember). Also have a K&N aircharger (cone filter) if you're interested.

Good luck.

Welcome to the board....Vineet Singh makes the manuals. Help a follow 3/S'er out and buy one of his Cd manuals...it will be well worth it. A guy on the board(pearlr/t) is making a 99 front end conversion for these cars...so if your is bad might want to look into getting one he is making.

Welcome to the board. I second the comment about Honda's. Don't waste your time or gas. Go for the vettes and vipers. Much more fun.

If anyone's interested, I'm asking $50 +shipping for the K&N Aircharger. Practically new in box.
If you haven't already sold your K&N aircharger to sprung_munkey, I will buy it.

Great choice!!! Do you have the Chrome rims?? If so, your car probably looks like Powelsound's. I also have a 93 and I love it (though mine's a stealth).

As a bonus: You got the first gen looks, but with a stronger engine than the 91 or 92 years!!

Edit: waaaaaaaaaaaait. You say you bought a 1993, but in your sig there's a 1994. Me is Confuzed

I fixed my signature…:eek: Thanks for pointing that out Wraith R/T awd. So far I’m in love with this car. It has so much power stock, I can’t wait for the mods… And yes, it does have chrome wheels. I’ll post a picture very soon.

The reason I mentioned stomping some Hondas is because there are a group of guys around here driving Hondas and Acuras and they think they are the sh#&. I can almost beat them in my wife’s Cougar. I think, for the most part, all they have done is put a humongous wing on the back with one of those 8-inch diameter mufflers. Sounds like a weed whacker to me. As soon as I get the breaks and the carrier bearings taken care of, I’m going to show them what REAL horsepower is all about.

The Vets and Vipers will come after the mods.

Anyways, thanks for the warm welcome.
