My VR6 timeline

This will be the begining of my build. So some quick history about the car. I bought it back in 2007 and have been in love with it ever since. I did a few small mods and bought a set of Vmaxx coilovers and not too long afterwards my first set of wheels. After I graduated I went to school in Houston for about a year. While there I had several overheating problems and went through a radiator several tires, bent a wheel on there crappy roads, and even went through a engine due to a flood. After I came back home I saved some money for new parts and a couple upgrades. Which brings me to my current status.

here's what ive been up to this week










the water traps will no longer run straight out of the side ports due to the fact that there isnt enough clearance for them to be removed without damage

seems like most of your mods are maintenance :confused:
very true. im not sure if this new motor has had the timechain or water pump replaced so im not goin to take any chances and i figured i might as well get new cams. Since my new bags are going in I thought i might as well replace all worn out parts.
