Aye oh!

Howdy guys, my name is Trey. I am new to automobiles and I am more interested in learning how to make my car the fastest race car in the whole wide state of Texas.

Please tell me what I need to do to do this.

All joking aside it has been a while, I still have to focus stowed up in the driveway at my families house while I am out at college. I am about to give it to my little cousin and help him fix it (I think it just jumped time). For now I am rolling around in my 97 accord sedan with 300,000+ miles. I have had a few other cars since the focus, a fully built first gen I got for dirt, a first gen talon, 70s bonneville, and now I stumbled upon a new car. A 3rd gen eclipse for free ninety nine. has a really clean wide body kit on it, and the motor is fully built with less than 1,000 miles on it. The bad side, it's been sitting on a trailer for five years, some low life busted out the sunroof and and rear quarter window. So I am planning on getting the title and starting to break it all apart. and start the rebuild. I am going to take all the turbo shit out, and rock a N/A v6 until I know it's running right, then slap the turbo set up back on. Did I mention it has a Vr4 motor swap?

So looking forward to getting back into the scene and getting my hands dirty.

I am on the look out for some parts, so if any one has a hook up or eyes on some of these lmk!

3g parts -
headlights
sunroof (preferably just the glass)
driver side quarter window

I also need stock injectors and stock exhaust manifold for a vr4 motor.

cover the entire car with as many stickers as you can find. The gtr, v spec, and sport ones add the most power!!!

Vr4 swap huh... pics or it didnt happen, as far as i know its almost impossible to do that swap because of the size of the engine, and to find those parts you're looking for it would be a lot easier to find them at a 3g forum...

3g forums are basically non existent, at least the ones I have read stuff on haven't been very active. If you know somewhere I can look, let me know! I don't have any pics of the car, I haven't even cracked open the hood, so we shall see what all the motor has done soon.

Non existent? I dont think so, they aren't popular because all the possible questions have been answered and people got tired of noobs asking those same questions over and over, so they just make fun of all new threads

I relize that you have been around for years but just absent for a while. I read you second post in this thread. I was just making fun of the guys who like performance stickers all over their cars. Team stickers and stickers done tastefuly are not a problem. It is alway good to have Focus veterans in the Houston area that have built cars. It helps us "3 star" guys when we have questions. Good luck to you on the Mitsubishi! I would like to see pictures as well. If you need help with the car or finding parts, I will be more than happy to help. I work at a shop (the General Manager) and have ways to get hard to find parts. Just let me know if I can help.
