The Story

Got stationed in Japan in June 2022. Bought the car with the defi gauge pods, and already upgraded clutch and radiator. The rest has been added by me. I own all of my listed planned upgrades, just waiting to install. Currently I plan on gathering more rare JDM exclusive parts while living in Japan, but I am interested in building the motor once I move back to the USA. I would like to make 400-450 whp, which I think would be enough in a car that sits at about 3000lbs.
