Once again, lookin' good, I applaud your efforts on turning a rather mundane, common ride into a one-of-a-kind monster, going all-out, and not half-assing it or making it simply a visual clone.


Now take me for a drive!

I can remember thinking the drivetrain conversion part of this was never ever going to happen when you first posted the idea.

Congrats on following through.

Noticed this thing for sale on another forum. Had any bites on it?

Nothing yet, seems a lot of people are put off by it being all sorts of different colors. The price is fairly spot on though, an Evo 5 conversion just sold for $20k.

Paint job just not in the budget at the moment? I think that thing would be a fairly quick sell all buttoned up and complete.

Well I've got a lot of free time now, considering painting the entire car out of my garage.

Still keeping the OEM TM wheels or did you sell them on?

That looks really awesome, so much effort is paying off at the end. What color are going for?

This has come so far. And now you're almost there. I'm sure I'm not the only one that can't wait to see this done.

The Volks would actually look quite a bit like the OEM Enkei's if you powdered them white. Depending on the size difference, they're probably lighter/not much heavier and quite a bit stronger.


You going to be contacting some magazines after it gets painted? Try to get some press for all your hard work.

I agree with the magazine thing. How many of these even exist anymore. I don't think I've ever seen one in person. Maybe its a jersey thing.

That's because real ones aren't 100% legal in the states until the 25 year mark. There was never much of any loopholes for them to come over like there were with Skylines (with the whole Motorex fiasco).
