No problem buddy! I actually now remembered that there's ONE MORE vehicle that I owned! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

I had BRONZY, a 91 2dr V6 that was pristine, and I sold it when I bought the SR off Rodney to a woman who lived up in BigBear.

That would have made me single at the time with 5 cars <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> so Bronzy had to go but sad now that I did. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/barf.gif" alt="" />

And then some of the Old Miller Year 2000 gang.. Dat, Rodney, John, the Trooper Dudes???

I still have all my images, trip stuff, build stuff conversion pics, transmission from HELL stuff, etc <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

I always thought this was the best journey.. REDCAR was always underpowered... that damn crappy carb.. found a guy on here who claimed he converted his to a Starion setup!

He lived fairly close to me, and said he was going "junking" (a term commonly used for a true Mitsu addict) so my ex-wife and I met him there...

Up pulls this nice blue Raider.. with a turbo sound! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" />
[Linked Image]

Open the hood to find this.. (ex-wife's red hair in the background.. lol)
[Linked Image]

I think that day we all talked til almost the sun went down! (seem to be common with us! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> )

As the months went on, I was going to piece together my Turbo system and Kevin was going to help me with it and then I get a call and he sends me this... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
[Linked Image]

Someone T-Boned him, and the vehicle was totaled so I bought it from the insurance and swapped over the components and rebuilt the engine.
[Linked Image]

Not long after that, Kevin got the bug again and shows up with this...
[img]http://hostthenpost.org/uploads/e251839df37c8313fcdc6f690e426b45.jpg[/img]
And of course swaps in a turbo! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> but if memory serves me correctly... gets into another accident <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/zombie.gif" alt="" />

I think we were all Mitsu crazy during that time!
[img]http://hostthenpost.org/uploads/6b537ebe1521479bdb03e7bbf5dc078e.jpg[/img]

So, I ended up getting a divorce (marrying again) and didn't talk to Kevin in awhile.. but then we hooked up and met again... This time he bought a another Raider!
[img]http://hostthenpost.org/uploads/007808c3fb4351beacfa25dd56165672.jpg[/img]

I knew that he met someone, moved up to OR and he finally got to build his dream garage! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> This was the last time I saw him <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> I don't think there was many turbo converted 2 dr vehicles around...

[img]http://hostthenpost.org/uploads/61de346415764a0e83fc98744f89ffdd.jpg[/img] This was probably the most Turbo Montero's in one place ever!

Sorry for the pic size guys.. hopefully your browsers do autosize..

Love reading this thread... takes me back. Great story and pics Jason! Miss all you guys. The other day I was talking to my wife and she said something about "her truck" and I realized it was true. After I sold the gen2 diesel and we got a gen3 to replace her Outlander, it kind of became hers. Sure, I like the gen3 - comfortable, lots of power with that 3.8... but... Its not really the same... I haven't been on here much, since I don't feel like I have much to contribute anymore - the gen3 does its thing without complaint, and I drive the SportBack as a DD... but something is missing.

I think maybe I need another project? Got something in mind, but have to save some money first. In the meantime, great to see what you veterans have been up to. Doesn't seem to matter how much time goes by - when you check back in here, you're one of the family!

I think kevinC has had a major influence on all of us from that early 4x4wire time period. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Also can't forget "mitsutech" who was the first known(on the wire and vmag) to have front(4cyl diff too) and rear lsd's last i spoke with him had to have been at least 10 years ago on the phone after i saw his 2 dr for sale(he lives(d) here in az) he had purchased a 95 sr, as his replacement and i havn't heard from him since.

It's been awhile. Been a few changes in the last 6yrs...

Some alterations I made before abandoning it in the woods for the past 4yrs are:
-Dropping a log on the hood from ~ 10'
-Backing up in the woods and hitting a tree square in the spare tire folding the back door in half
... both of those I managed to pull out. You'd never know the difference.

Probably a sign of the times that I tried to "like" your post, Russ! Bahaha. Every time I reread this post, it makes me nostalgic.
