So I have had my galant for a pretty long time and I took the motor out and put a built motor in it but this was a long time ago. So it's been sitting for years and now I am finally trying to get it going. I know I'm gonna have some questions as this goes on. For starters I got rid of the galant motor a while back without taking some of the parts off. So I was looking at the stuff that's on the motor now to see if it was right. I have had a few 90 dsm's so some of those parts are floating around. I noticed so far that the igniter is wrong. The coil seems to plug in and so does the cas. If those plug in does that mean that they will be the correct years and work or is it possible to have something that plugs in and still won't work? Also I have a 1g fmic that I'm going to try and use. I already grinded those tabs down a bit and it's still super tight. I have a 1g mishimoto radiator but if I try and mount that in the original location there so no way for those short route pipes to go by on the passenger side. If I try and slide it down so it's more centered then the power steering cooler line gets in the way. Has anyone done anything with that line to get it out of the way? I might just go with the scirocco rad to save space and make it easier. Also the turbo makes it a tight squeeze with the 1d rad. Thanks for any help.
If you have pieces that don't fit you could do one of two things Mount them somewhere they do fit, or get pieces that fit. As for the 90 DSM sensors, they are not compatible with 91+ wireing harnesses. Same thing applies here. You could get the right sensors or splice up the wire harness. Both problems have been solved both ways. Do you have the right engine brackets and mounts in place? Some are unique to the galant chassis.

I'm pretty sure the mounts are correct. It was a while ago but I remember trying to put a trans on a motor a while back and the mount wasn't even close to lining up because the motor was too far back or forward. And I'm pretty sure the trans went in fine in the galant but I'll double check now that you mention it.

The bracket that bolts to the front of the engine block for the front motor mount is Galant specific. The DSM part is close, but will not work correctly.
Also, get a 91+ CAS, coil pack and ignitor and save yourself some headaches. The rest should be compatible. Good luck!
