So I’ve been on this board for 2 years now since I got my car in July 2017. Nothing special, it’s a performance blue 2014 ST3. Was supposed to just be my daily that I wasn’t going to mod because I have a 3000GT VR-4 in the garage that needs to be fixed, but that can wait until I’m done school next year. I just recently got a Boomba BOV and ordered a Cobb AP v3 from FSWerks to add to my filter, Cobb RMM, and short shifter/ shifter bushings.

How about some pics of the VR-4? I don't see many of those kicking around much these days, besides junkyards. It's a cool platform, I can't imagine maintaining it though, lol

Yeah maintaining them isn’t always cheap, especially if you don’t find an unmolested one. Mine was a pristine one-owner when I got it, but my electronic boost controller gave me trouble after a year. Then after I had just upgraded the turbos it overboosted while I was doing a pull in second. I’ll spare the details but I’m in PTA school so I’d rather just get back to it once I graduate and have money to throw at it until it’s good again lol.

I do love that color, I had a Wildberry Metallic Pearl 95 Talon TSI AWD, among other DSMs, lol

What are your plans with her? Going big and bold, or just getting her going?

Hell yeah dude! I love DSMs even though I never had one myself.

I guess depending what I find in there will dictate what I do. If it winds up needing a new shortblock or piston(s) or something, then I’ll probably have it rebuilt and make sure I don’t cut any corners while I’m in there. I want it done right so I don’t have to mess with it again, meaning going to a reputable 3S shop. 13g’s were the original plan for 375-400awhp, but I might sell the 13g’s for some bigger turbos and definitely snag some bigger injectors with a chrome ECU to shoot for 450-500awhp. I’ll put collectors insurance on it and have it be my weekend warrior/ show car.

Awesome plan man!! Fell free to make a build thread here, in the other builds section, if you want. I'd stalk it for sure.

Sounds good! I’ll definitely keep that in mind for once I’m ready to get started on it again. Thank you
