    Rim size is wrong - the hub size on rims are a hair too small - they've been ground wider to fit
    Cross over in fuel tank MAY not be functioning.
    Idler pulley brace for accessory belt (as far as I'm aware) is broken.
    Intake pipe leading to the turbos (under the intake manifold has been cut and re-glued back together - I'd look at replacing this)
    Powersteering pump MAY have been replaced - it was on its way out while I owned the car
    Fuel lines at the injectors and injectors MAY (should) need replacement.


    I know the kid who bought the car from me - and as much as I wanted to help him with the repairs and "mods" he wanted to do... there was a LOT of hack and slash crap that was done. He unloaded the car to someone else and it may have changed hands a few times.... But this is just what I know about it.


    Aside from the aforementioned challenges - it was a nice little car - just wasn't my flavor.
    (and before anyone flames me - any of the issues I had with the car - were discussed with disclosure with all interested buyers)

    Thanks 88 you are a very honest seller and great member for returning after so long.
    This is a really cool story of your car. Thanks for sharing!


    Do you have another JDM still or are you planning on it?

    I'm just hoping that many of these issues have been addressed...

    as for my future - another JDM? probably not... I've found access to parts to be a bit more challenging than its worth. I like all cars - but more for the build and creation - not so much the finished project.
    I found my perfect car already though - an '04 M3
    and I've got a pet project that has been taking me years to complete in an 88 Mustang hatch.

    You guys have been a great community to be a part of.

    Good to hear but I think parts are much easier. We've all learned a great deal over the years and ordering from Japan is not hard either.
    I hope we can convince you to hang around and get into another JDM. There's alot more choice available than before too .

    Thanks for the kind words we try hard for the JDM community going on 11 years now
