VEHICLE STORY

I bought this car from a friend in Pennsylvania and brought it down to Texas. I got it knowing it had existing issues but to what extent those issues were I truly had no idea of what I was getting into. While the car is driveable and quite dependable the entire suspension needs a rebuild. All the bushings and control arms on the vehicle need to be replace and the previous own even cut off the rear sway bar. It sounds like a Diesel engine which is indicative of vanos needing to be rebuilt or timing chain tensioner being loose, haven't check that yet. I got this car SUPER cheap and to me it's worth keeping alive in one form or another since I personally consider this car a classic. When the m62tu eventually goes I'm looking at doing an ls swap just for cheap reliable power. This car gets looks everywhere it goes and even been in a few youtubers videos. I am prepared to take this journey and I welcome you all to come along with me on it.

Hey everyone sorry for lack of updates. For whatever reason the app doesn't let me upload photos from my phone. I updated with a few new photos of the car of getting some paint work done and adding a few more carbon fiber bits (roof spoiler,CSL splitters). I also added a set of White Cosmis Racing XT-005r wheels with Hancook Ventus V12 EVO2 tires.

I also replaced front lower control arms and bushings with MeyleHD units so the front end is even tighter now. Next big mod on the horizon for me is a set of bags front Air Lift Performance since my daily driving route isn't the best for a static slammed car.
