Been living here for the last year and a half, but haven't really found a whole lot of people. Have quite a few ties around, but would really like to expand and meet new people.


Have had my VR-4 since 2003, was always a big GM guy, but couldn't afford what I wanted back then. It used to be quick back in 04 before everyone was turbo'ed and fast. (recently dyno'ed with the same mods it has had since 04/05 and put down 470AWHP @ 20PSI)

Best time was 11.74 @ 122 MPH, haven't been racing for years as I was attending Purdue trying to finish my degree in 4 years.


Currently working as a Network Engineer locally here in Northbrook, live in Mettawa. Anyone nearby?

Just grabbed some off facebook.











as of last week.. started to prep for pulling motor to refresh the car. After making 500+hp for 5 years with 0 maintenance, it is time to go through and replace all the seals, and see what it needs...

Thanks guys :) It used to be a lot nicer, but I'm sure as you all know, finding the money can be difficult.
