Hey there 6GC joined fairly recently as I have a 96 GT-Four coming in this week to Canada and thought I'd share some pics out of excitement.

Having never seen this paint code on a st205 before, I did some research and found out the name is Blue Slate Metallic (183).

As far as I know from auction sheets and my agents:

- Car is completely stock aside from a boost gauge, head unit, and aftermarket 16" rims
- Auction Grade 4 (160km, no major dents/scratches, no rust)
- Sunroof

First order of business is basic preventative maintenance to ensure reliability as I do plan on keeping this car for a while (at least until it becomes legal in the U.S).

Will regularly update the car as soon it comes in! Thanks for viewing!

8K Canadian doesn't seem bad at all if it's in as good of shape as it looks.

I'll probably pop by tomorrow to get a better idea of the condition but from my mechanic's pictures she doesn't look too bad for a 22 yr old car

Its been a rough week. Found out I need to spend money to replace a slipping clutch, as well as rotors on top of what I'm already planning to do with the car. Just dropped off the clutch as well as a drl kit at my shop so hopefully it passes inspection soon!

In the mean time,

Small Update:

So I finally got the car back from the shop after having a new clutch installed and my god does this thing pull. Im so used to being in subies where you aren't moving anywhere until 3k+ so you know my face lit up after 2k rpm biggrin.gif

She definitely needs some TLC as there are a lot of nit-picky issues like a floppy rearview mirror, broken folding mirrors, and an uncooperative gas tank cover but so far I'm loving the car. Hopefully within the next few months I'll be able to update this thread with a lot more progress but for now, a few pictures!



after a quick car wash - hopefully I'll be able to fully decontaminate and ceramic coat the car when I have time off from school

So after a day of driving of course I would get the infamous error 54 code. Cars currently in limp mode and after doing a coolant check and blipping the throttle, the charge cooler pump does not seem to be operating for some reason as coolant isn't being cycled. Does anyone know of any good replacements to the oem one?

I found an overhauled oem replacement from gt4-play.co.uk which I am probably going to go with after I do more tests on the circuits and test the amps of the pump itself. However if anyone knows of any alternatives that are PnP please let me know!

These cars seem to be appreciated a lot more down south than from where I am haha. I've only seen maybe 1-2 other GT4's in my city.

Before jumping into a new pump, have you tried topping off the intercooler. The level sensor is very picky. If that doesn't fix it, then unplug the sensor and bridge the connector to make sure it's not the sensor itself that is broken. Disconnect the battery to clear the code before each try.

The intercooler pump should not be circulating while stopped. The argument for this design is so that the "cooler" coolant in the exchanger will keep cooler and will start circulating when you take off..and maybe extended pump life?

If you've come across these suggestions and tried those things already, then disregard this message.
