Damn nice car, I've always wanted a Right hand drive car. I like the look and it would confuse the hell out of my friends the first time i'd pull up :P . I think it would be worth the money to import one, Na it would probaly cost more than the car new to ship it here. :lol:

I wanna import one as well. I would drop the 4g63 in it right away.. it would probably register pretty easy. U.S motor and ecu and all the little smog bs.. so lets get a group buy going on these. i know you can rent a big cargo crate for. i'm not sure but if we all went in on it. we could probably fit five or more cars in there. whos down?

LOL, you're dreaming. You live in California. It would NOT be an easy thing to do and for the cost of doing it you could buy a base-model CSM, swap a 4G63 into it, AND make it AWD, and have money left over to buy yourself a 3 Musketeers bar.

Haha, as well as what the CaptainTonus mentioned above, you have to remember that these cars aren't exactly common over here either. Actually, the amount of C83A's i've seen with my own eyes, I could count on one hand. You'd probably have to live here for a few years if you wanted to find 5 of them :lol:

Swapped the good interior in, back in March

And attempted to fit some crap into the tiny 4WD boot

Then lowered it on some crap springs, brand new crap shocks, and 17"s

Moved the battery to the boot..

Thanks. After owning 4 n/a Mirages over nearly 6 years, its good to finally see a turbo in my engine bay :lol:

Apparently the rear diff arm/bush should be here in about 2 weeks, so i've got until then to sort the other minor stuff I have left to do. Argh, can't wait to drive it!! :twisted:
