This is what happens when you take an already fast and sexy car, and make it better....
I present to you my 1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 backed by its V6 AWD AWS Twin-Turbo 6G72TT . This is my second 3/S that I've stumbled upon to be the perfect 90's sports car and project. She was found locally and extremely well-maintained @ 112,652 original miles! The new challenge begins...
My goals were modest merely being low 12's w/ 350+AWHP using the right combination of parts and tuning. She will be one of the most uncommon and sexiest cars to roam the streets. This time around, however, I aim to keep everything as clean and stealth as possible with progressive upgrades.
