Re: my new Mitsu (jayseal22)

My next door neighbor showed up with one of those a couple weeks ago
That's a VR-4 right? Nice cars.. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
He bought it from an unfortunate owner who took it to a SMOG shop which hooked it up to a FWD dyno. I'm not sure how, but he says they tried to lockup the rear diff and wound up grinding the hell out of it. The owner brought the car to the shop for a repair estimate which was about 1/2 the value of the car. So for 1/4 the total cost of the car, he sold it to my neighbor (original owner made 3/4 blue-book for the 'cause he took the SMOG shops money and my neighbor's money).
Now my neighbor is GREAT with cars.. For under $3000 total investment (including the cost of the car) he was able to fix the car 's rear diff (using his connections as a mech, he got the parts below retail and labor was *free*) and he turned around and sold the car. last I heard, he was asking about $13, but said he'd settle for $9. All I know, that car is gone and there's Sentra SE-R in its spot..
He said he is saving up to buy a Z06 in cash, by bartering in these used cars. He's in the right postion to do it! And his work is really good. He's done monster Miata swaps before, and keeps asking me when I'm ready to do mine http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Ok ok,, long story about my neighbor.. I just thought I'd share 'cause that car looks almost exactly like the one I saw. We check it out, it was nice work.. It had upgraded Garret turbos, ECU, exhaust, intercooler, plumbing and wiring.. The previous owner claimed the car was making 490 HP before it melted the rear diff at the SMOG shop.. So here's a http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif to the potential of these monsters!!!
