    Hey "rick," you do realize Mitsubishi Motors of North America is just a sliver of the entire Mitsubishi Conglomerate? Mitsubishi Electric supplies practically every electronic part to Japanese automakers and even some of your precious domestics? Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is a very larger turbocharger manufacturer for many OEMs. Kia, Hyundai, Subaru, Volvo, and more all utilize MHI turbochargers on some of their turbocharged applications.Hyundai purchased engine blueprints from Mitsubishi: G4CP = 4G63, G4JS/G4CS= 4G64.

    MMNA is a testbed for R&D for the Mitsubishi Conglomerate. The Conglomerate makes so much money as a whole, they can continue to absorb MMNA profit losses for the next 1000 years. Mitsubishi Motors is profitable in EVERY other territory it is in. They didn't have to work with Chrysler to get into any of those regions after all. Face it, MM has no need for "Japanese government handouts." Especially considering MANY people purchase Mitsubishi Cars in Japan. They practically lead the pack in "Kei" Car sales. The Mitsubishi Minica alone sold 100K+ units in 2012.

    As for you OP, the 3000gt is incredibly hard to work on with the engine bay being so small. IF it's yor first car, avoid it. IF you want a good project car, buy a VR4.
