Hi All,

I have recently bought a fresh off the boat, 2000 model manual 8G facelift VR4 Spec-V and am currently in the process of removing the rough edges that imports come with.

Looking forward to meeting some of you at a Sydney meet or dyno day in the near future.

Welcome to the group Adam

Nice ride.........

We'll be doing a run in Early March, watch the NSW thread, finalised details will be up 3rd week of February, hopefully you'll be ready to rock and roll and meet some of the twisted brothers and sisters of the NSW VR4 fraternity.

Welcome to the club Adam,

I have to ask, are you the person who bought the PROS Galant from Edward Lee's ?

From the photos, it looks just like it !

You just simply HAVE to bring it to the next meet, though I'm not sure if you're going to want to take that piece of beauty across a dirt road mate ;)

Brad, for those not interested in the dirt section, they can double back from St.Albans after the Lunch and meet up with daredevils after the dirt section, for the cruise back to Peats Ridge regroup point, as previously posted the dirt section will only take place after we check the condition of the road on the 22nd.

Thanks for the welcome.

Yes its the PROS Galant from Edward Lees, I wouldn't recommend them BTW.

I don't think I can make the dyno day this weekend, I am doing a 10hr outage on my companies main UNIX system early Sunday morning.

I will be getting the car dyno'd today when I set up the HKS EVC and check the a/f ratios, I will post the results :)

Regards,

Ohhh cool, you bought that one!

My thoughts exactly :D

Welcome to the site bro, and good to see that damn sexy car went to a NSW person.... Hope to see you at our next meet!

And don't worry about Eddie Lees. Its like being a pedophile. Sometimes you just can't help being the way that you are

Cool I'd like to see what this car is putting out power-wise.

Oh by the way, when you come to our meets, don't mind us ripping out all your PROS stuff so we can start making copies of them HEHE :p

Hehe so tell us all about YOUR experience with Edward Lee's .. I think most in Sydney have a story about them !

The car is still at the tuners, I have one of their courtesy car though, they are either slow or thorough, probably both.

The guys at Edward Lees had no idea about the mods on the car, I bought it because I looked it up on the internet when they said it was a show car for PROS, and I needed a new car after my S15 Silvia got stolen.

When I test drove the car it had a HKS EVC boost controller set at 19.2psi, when I picked up the car they had reset it to wastegate boost and said they couldn't give me warranty while it had a boost controller. At least they gave it to me in a box with all the other electronics... They also didnt do the stuff they said they would, service, detailing etc, and they delay the pickup day a couple of times. Anyway, it is currently at the tuners getting its boost back :)

I have defeated your unusual emoticons! muhahaha!! OK, I'm a nerd

That's an interesting intake pipe design, seems to be too many bends. But I do like the Y pipe! That's exactly what I've been planning.

Nice car mate, very original.

Be good to see what the actual turbos are in it? See if you can find out hey?

Engine bay looks very professional, those welds would have taken a long time, only thing I would change is the pod filter and have it moved where the battery currently is and a bit if a cold air intake system, but even so, those dudes in Japan probably thought of this to some degree I'd imagine, as by the looks of their other work it appears they knew what they were doing!!

Be interesting to see what sort of power you get also.
