Hello RS25 Family,
I have been lurking for a while and snatched up a dream car for me

So today I spent an hour or show going over the car to see what I need to do to restore this baby to fighting form. The source is to restore and improve any parts that need to be replaced. I want to use this for weekends, autocross, track days and I would love to do rallycross with my local chapter
86870

The list goes..
ALL THE PAINT SUCKS (I knew this but I'm shocked that someone would do this to this kind of car)
Rear trunk lock - Ordered should be here this week
Exhaust bangers are broken at rear
Muffler hole - small

Suspension dumped on its ass so I need to raise it
Oil plan bashed in looking at getting the OEM pan V2 with killer bee oil pump- need to source
Locate driver side oil leak
Front window cracks in the window like in between the layers
AC belt and compressor most likely - Need to source
Turbo chimney - Need to source if worth it.
Intercooler nearly all fins are bent - Need to source

Windshield washer bottle has a large hole - Need to source
Play in the throttle cable
Mounting for the grill in zip ties so I need to fix that - Need to source
Ac plumping just hanging
Remove the remaining stereo cable from the engine, cabin, and trunk

Missing skid plate -Need to source
OEM Strut Bar - Sourced
Restore or replace EW-5T storage - Need to source

Hood scoop missing mounting screws and stripped bolts - Need part number
Replace fuse box cover - need to source
Hood stays plastic holder - need to sour
ce
Front bumper cracked
Remove the yellow film from fogs but looking for covers - need to source
Radio delete

95' USDM Radio
Trim Restoration
----
Dream:
Speedline wheels WRC style 17'
ProDrive or APracing front brakes

So the oil leak has been found it's coming from the back of the turbo and spilling straight on the headers so now I'm hunting for a TD05 16G to replace this turbo. While I was driving with the mechanic to troubleshoot the turbo issue I noticed the hood scoop was popping up at speed. This became my weekend project that snowballed a bit.

Now I'm trying to find new mounting hardware x20 struggling to the source here in the states. Half were broken or rusted and missing bits.

Then I noticed the shroud wasn't connected to the sprayers nor were there no holes for the sprayers. So I need the right shroud and sprayers for the final section. Time to research.

WTB: I don't have access to the WTB section so I figured I would try here,
I'm searching for,
V2 Type-RA Intercooler shroud with sprayers
20x Mounting Screws for scoop and vents
V2 Hoodscoop would be great mine has some broken clips.
TD05 16G Turbo
V1/2 Fog covers

type-ra.com will be a good place to search, if you can't find what you're looking for here. Good luck! (Also, stock '95 radios are surprisingly hard to source, just did that a couple months back.)

RunsWithScissors thank you. I'm on there too but most of those guys are in Europe so I figured I would document my build here too. I know many here are importing some JDM goodies.
