    Mitsubishi Sapporo project

    Apologies for photo quality

    Decided to snap this up, was too cheap, and the owner was just gonna scrap it.

    Has IRS, discs all round, pillarless coupe. Bit of rust but nothing terminal.








    4G63, either DOHC N/A, or more likely, SOHC turbo for lack of certification need. Wind up boost a little
    Get spare locker diff or LSD if I can find one cheap (unlikely).
    Adjustable suspension
    Clean up rust on front guards and RHS sill, but keep it rugged, not too fussed
    Sticker her up
    Rip out all interior I can, decent fixed back for race/manji day
    Get headlight wipers working
    Nardi wheel, or something nice
    Long ass shifter with novelty knob
    Some sweet rims for the front
    Some other shit probably

    It's already cool!

    Currently trying to obtain 2x 4G63Ts I know of, which would be perfect, build one good one. Add a big wheeled TD05, couple of ecu-tricking kits and decent intake+exhaust and I should get good power.

    Looking into widening some steels for cruising, with a seperate set for drift/track days

    Carrots.

    I agree, that color is part of its retro charm
