Updates

Installed the catback and gutted the rear precat.
Turbos are in good working condition and not blowing oil, little to no shaft play.
Steering rack was shot when I got it on, so I need to order another one....

Aluminum drive shaft is in the mail, should be here Friday (05/04).
I should have that on by automotion.

Car is at 3520 with an 1/8th tank of gas.

Not mine, I say save your money and don't do any of that. If you really love the car then get a new JDM short block and swap your shit over and drop it in. Suddenly a 170k+ mile car becomes a 45k mile cream puff. Then build from there with confidence.

Haha thanks. I have a 175k mile Supra that's getting the same treatment, so I've given the topic some thought.

I hear where you guys are coming from but keep in mind, this isn't a subaru, they can take a little more abuse and I do have a wideband ready to put in with the downpipe as well so I can monitor it.

My dad an I road tripped this car to Washington (state) and made it in under 24 hours. The car runs great.

Oh yeah man, the engine in that and the one in the supra are as close to bullet proof as you can find. I just say it from a point of power loss and degredation over time more than a reliability issue.

Collect boltons, bolt them on, blow up engine, replace with built engine, blow up drive train, re-enforce drivetrain.

PostSubject: Re: STiedVR4Guy's VR-4 Build Thread   Tue May 10, 2011 3:47 pm

So I ordered some stuff for this now that I am rid of my STi

Here is the list of things that are on order or sitting in my room.

OEM ECS Struts
Lowering Springs
PMP Downpipe
GZP Manifold/PreCat Eliminator combo
DBA 4000 Slotted Rotors
Carbotech AX6 Pads
StopTech SS braided brake lines front/back
Supercar Engineering Caliper Stiffening Bolts and Speed bleeders
ground wire kit

I am also probably going to order a SS clutch line as well as figure out a catback and delete my cruise control.

Motorsport Matt (32vape) is doing my Motor mounts tonight and will probably be doing my catback in the near future. As of right now I think I'm just going to strait pipe it unless I start getting pulled over to much or its just to loud.

Going to try to get the Struts/springs in this upcoming weekend and have it lowered for automotion.

Hopefully my rotors will get here this week as they have been on backorder for almost 3 weeks now Sad and I can do the brake stuff as well.

If his is like the one on the supra its a great big vacuum actuated piece of shit that gets in the way, weighs a lot, uses a second throttle cable and doesn't work very well.
