New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

picked it up from CT and brought it home to long island a few weeks ago, fuel systems fucked, leaky 4ws, and the worst squirrel infested car i'v ever had the pleasure of owning.











question?
are 95 gsx rear ends, spindles, brakes and steering rack swappable?
And i need a gvr4 filler neck, sending unit and tank, a 3" muffler(Borla preferred) and 3" cat, new or used.

1.91/94 1Gs would be your better catch of a rear end swap...

2.Filler neck can be bought on JNZ new for $48.00 click

3. Fuel tank.... good luck, check junk yards for Galant GSX's they were 4wd as well so I would fathom that they should be interchangeable.

4. Cat I would also look for in a junkyard or place a WTB here on the board for one.

1. so the 95 which is a 2g rear end and power steering rack will not bolt on?

2. thank you. filler neck will be ordered if i find a stock fuel tank solution.

3. found one in the fs section, i'll be doing a search on this but what are gallant gxs's? i thought they were fwd's swapped to awd!

justice will prevail.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

If there are no holes in the gas tank u can clean up the outside and paint it. For the inside of the fuel tank they make a three stage treatment to reline the inside of the tank. I did it to a motorcycle tank u just have to fallow directions on bottle. Check ebay or google to find the product. It is a good alternative to replacing the whole tank.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

Tank can not be saved, it was so pitted after sandblasting i wouldn't feel safe with it on the car. i got it running threw it on the lift to mocked up a 3" turbo back and found rusty brake, fuel, steering lines and a dirty under carriage. i have a 95 gsx shell i was going to pull both front and rear sub-frame's, axles, rotors, brakes etc from but i am yet to throw it on the lift to see whats swappable. I just opened up an auto & cycle shop and haven't found the time for the gvr4 so far the interior been cleaned out and that's it.





tall ars shifter was bugging me so off with its head.

Plans are to pull front and rear sub-frames, fuel, brake and steering lines.
See if the 95 gsx ps rack and front and rear sub-frame bolt on.
Clean up, spray sealant, rubberize the under carriage & wheel wells.
Fit new fuel and brake lines.
mock up 3" turbo back and fuel cell(utilizing the stock location & filler hole)

any1 have an opinion on sub-frame bushings? should i oem or upgrade?

i also plan to replace lines clean up and rebuild the rear steering unit

1G T/E/L were actually based on the 6G Galant platform not the other way around.

2G T/E was based on the 7G Galant platform which is also carried over to the JDM/World-spec 8G Galant with a few small changes, the US 8G Galant went away from the multi-link front suspension to macpherson struts like the 6G or Diamante. The 2G T/E definitely has multi-link up front.

The 3G Eclipse is based on the Chrysler Sebring platform, which I believe is loosely based on the US 8G Galant platform (macpherson struts at front and multi-link in the rear)

The 4G Eclipse is based on the 9G Galant. The 10G Galant isn't even released yet.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

thanks brother, its hard not to rush through this semi build. I've been carless for almost 4 years, 3 of it was in the city where my fixie and Honda hawk got me to and from work and play. i now live in suburbia where u need a car to get anywhere. sux

When i picked it up last November, i thought i would strip the car down and take my sweet ass time putting it back together, yeah ok. All i look forward to now, is the day i push the pedal down and it goes. last thing i want is to go boom on that first drive, so im keeping a pace i know gives me time to attend to possible weak links as i kinda clean up the mess i paid for.

so far so good, i have about 2700(price of car included) into it. i've built road bikes twice that amount so yeah so far so good. i know i don't yap much on this thread, but i'ii make up for it in person, for im sure i'll meet a few of u and kill you slowly with endless questions.

A buddy stopped by today saw the car an said "when u gonna git that thang runnin" so i finished up the hood latch, front bumper & worked on the ic pipe routing a bit. we talked about going halvesies on a aluminum welder, we'll see(getting fed up ov waiting on people)

again so far so good, here is the remainder ov my list for those who care.

install ss brake lines
weld up ic piping
get alu 1g bpv flange
weld in flex pipe and wide band o2 bung
remove fix & reinstall rear steering hose
power steering pump rebuild
wiring to thermostat housing & fuel pump
find fuel gauge sender
install rear sub-frame bushings
build datalogger cable, pick up a palm
aaaaand... i forget.. there's always more:)

as usual i'll share as i go along.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

For the front SS brake lines, they look installed wrong. You are supposed to retain the OEM metal section that connects the lines together. And they should have a bracket that connects and wraps them around to the rear of the shock. That is probably why you have so much slack in your lines.

ade
(Carbon Fiber Phallus Group Buy Member)
02/24/13 11:17 AM
Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

i did it all wrong on purpose and got rid of the oem metal section to run one ss line from the hard line to the caliper, unfortunately the front line was a bit long, rears are perfect. fortunately i ordered a shorter length, bye bye slack.

so i get to cleaning ina the trunk last night when i run into this. Hwaaaaaaa, could this be a source of a future melt down? not on my watch!

there's a way to lock the car in closed loop, but im not familiar with v3. i got an sd kit and p&p harness from ecmlink i picked up a while back and decided, i don't need no stinking maf, so a good buddy will be here sunday to tune in speed density. till then i'll sort out all its issues.

hey ade,

I don't know if anybody's said anything about that plug coming off the ecu harness but if it's anything like mine (and it looks exactly the same) a previous owner had tapped into the front o2 wire for one reason or another and the green wire/white male plug was just hanging there. I found mine when wiring an AFR gauge to my ecu and deleted it.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

Quoting transparentdsm:


not 100% sure but that should be the o2 voltage output.. you can run a narrowband gauge to it for a reading.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

you can plug it into a aftermarket narrowband gauge, but that is all. its just a o2 voltage output. let it dangle or tuck it into the wires or add yourself a narrowband gauge.

edit: if your still troubled with the o2 wiring and no one helps you by sunday i will take pictures of my o2 and wiring harness, if you did everything right according to a manual the only thing i can think of is the two black wires are backwards..

oh man, you cut the wire you should have plugged the gauge into. haha its a simple tap in and its supposed to be there so when your check engine light comes on for a bad o2 you can attach a multimeter there and see if its dead. i mean you have the gauge now so you'll def know if its dead, but thats what the wire/plug was there for. also no previous owner installed it, thats how it comes from the factory, mine has it to and so does every other VR4 and DSM.

yesterday i go to start and pull it back into the garage, no spark. unbolt the cas, spin it, nothing!?! ecmlink wont even link up to the ecu. the cel and turbo gauge don't light up.. my ecu needs to go on a lil trip.

why did this happen? could it be because it wasn't bolted to the body? any 1 have any ideas?

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

well a few weeks ago after a rainy week the car would not start. i enlisted the help of Toybreaker and Tektic in contacting the galant spirits and eventually figured out i had a scrambled ecu. im not sure if its burnt ground tracers or leaky crap but me thinks it was cause i wired the a/f logger into the ecu incorrectly, either way im paying for it. so off to ecmlink it went.

but as usual i got impatient...

so i picked up an eprom ecu, it had slightly leaky caps but was clean and most importantly, was a known working ecu.

a few minutes on our grand inter-webs and i found and ordered these.

splitmotorsport cap kit & eprom socket


then visited radioshack for their $14 desoldering iron


got rid of the leaky caps



this was the tricky part, but it got done
eprom out....


socket in


i gotta wash the board with soap n water, let er dry, then solder in the new stuff. i thought the ecu would catch ablaze on me while de-soldering , but it turned out to be a cake walk.

i cant wait to have a running galant again.

The cars been on the road for a few months now, with the weather being so crappy and the limited time i have nowadays its been tough getting to the little issues the car has. i still need to work on my tune, seal up the trunk, find and install a fuel swirl pot(im looking at versions that encloses the pump to keep the noise down), replace the pass side axle seal,re shim my rear end, rebuild my drive shaft, buy and install fans to replace the old worn out fans and a few odds and ends like a sound system, interior and exterior details.

I had an issue with my clutch not disengaging properly and after pulling the trans to shim the pivot ball, playing with the cables and replacing both clutch master and slave, i found out it was my pedal set. took it out welded it the third time around and installed and no more issues . it def took its toll as my 1st and 3rd syncro's took a beating. i see a trans rebuild in my future.

Thats all for now.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

So a few days ago, I noticed my heater blower motor stayed on after turning off the car and removing the keys out of the ignition, I turned the blower off, problem solved for now. Two days ago I came back to a dead battery, this time the blower shut off after turning off the car but turned on a few mins after I had left.

Has anyone encountered this in the past? I have a feeling its a ground issue. I can't read my speed sensor through ecmlink and was wondering if they were on the same ground track. Either way I have a feeling I'll have to pull my dash in order to fix this. Damn squirrels must have trashed the place during their stay.

I'll appreciate any insight on the issue, thanks in advance.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

i've ordered the drive shaft rebuild kit from jnz and the rear differential shims from a local mitsu dealer, now working on a solution for the 044 pump.

At levels below a 1/4 tank, the noise the 044 makes scrounging for fuel gives me the willies, which of course brings up the possibility of blowing up the motor due to a drop in fuel pressure.

so i looked into surge tanks/swirl pots.


i wanted something like the above but while this help's with my starvation issue, it does nothing for the noise.

so i did a little more digging and found the below.


intergrated engineering submerged 044 billet surge tank


034 motorsport fully enclosed fp34 044 fuel surge tank

now a normal swirl pot/surge tank is fed by an intank fuel pump but this isn't an option in my case so i'll have to go with a hunch and mount the pot lower than my fuel tank which in theory should keep it filled up. that being said i'm leaning towards the 034 unit's fully enclosed and compact design.

07/22/14 10:22 AM
Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

It seems to me that it would be a lot cheaper and easier to swap to an in-tank Walbro equivalent or something. They aren't quiet, but aren't deafening either. Why don't you just ditch the 044 all together? Unless you are planning to do serious track outings in the future, a swirl pot is pretty overboard. I've only really seen them used in road course/rally cars to keep from fuel starvation during continuous hard cornering. I've also seen them used in a lot of off road rigs, like rock crawlers, which operate at ridiculous angles. Guessing you won't be doing any rock crawling with the VR4 though.

I'm glad you kept the car. I was watching this on Ebay and thought it sold for around 4k?

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

That looks nice for a track car or garage queen, but if you plan on driving the car I'm not sure that's a great setup. I'm sure you have your reasons, I just think judging by what you're saying about the noise, you won't ever be able to bring it down to a manageable level.

There's 2 issues with that setup that make it less than ideal for a street car IMO; the first being external fuel pumps by nature are loud. The fuel tank and the liquid within do a lot to muffle the noise. Without them, you would need to insulate the pump somehow to isolate the noise, and I just don't see how that would be possible with the pump in its current location.

The second issue is your entire setup is exposed to the elements, and is in a prime location to get shit on by any and everything you drive through. If you plan on ever driving this in the NY winters, those components and electrical connections will need to be extremely weather proofed in order to stay looking pretty and functioning. I think that's the last place I would locate the pump on a street car.

I'm not really sure what your goals for the car are, though. If you're building a weekend toy for the track or something, nothing I said really matters. I just assumed you intended this thing to be fairly streetable when you mentioned the pump noise being annoying. Track cars are pretty much expected to be void of any creature comforts.

thanks guys, its my cool car, it is my track car, my drag car, my street car, my garage queen, my jsballer. i picked it up, knew what i wanted and been building ever since.

your first issue with my setup is my third, external pumps are loud. thats just part of the point to the surge tank. it'll keep the pump submerged, muffle the noise and move the pumps location.

your second issue is further down the line in my issue queue, mostly because exposure to the element hasn't been much of an issue, i drove it daily all winter through brooklyn, queens, long island and manhattan without one breakdown. i have access to a lift and regularly cleaned and inspected my under carriage keeping my electrical connections and components pretty and functioning.

anyway i had planned on making an under panel for the rear but it wasn't gonna happen thanks to the fuel pump location. now that its getting relocated, i can plan on getting it made.

as for my goals, like everyone i want a reliable galant vr4.

Good work. Make sure when you put new grease in the axle, you only add a little bit. If you add too much, it will come flying out as soon as the car gets up to speed.

Re: New New Yorker taking on a gvr4

1052 is on the ground, cams are in, i lucked out and found a beam torque wrench that went lower than 20 foot pounds for the cam caps, new plugs are in. i also cleaned and painted the exhaust from the mid pipe down with black high temp rattle. isc came in from 89Mirageman, thanks man.

its out with me in queens for the weekend for some logging. i like what the 264's do, while cruising(which is all i'm doing) motor feels like it added on a few more cc's. im gonna start tuning with Stacy(my1gdsm) in a few days.
