I got the new DSM76 setup on the car in time for MOD. The OEM coolant lines nor coolant line worked. I have to get all new lines. What worked best for the oil return line was a 45 off the oil pan and a 45 of the turbo. I installed the FP inline filter along with the new SS feed line. I had to have my DP converted to a Vband to connect to the new o2 housing and I ordered an generic 45 degree IC pipe and cut it to size for the Turbo outlet pipe. I'm not 100% happy with the pipe as it is at a slight angle but it works and fits well. Please don't mind the dirty engine bay and the huge diesel truck battery, it is temporary. LOL, I should say it adds another 50hp.

I still have not had her tuned but I did get a chance to take her out to GMR this past weekend on the new setup. Even not tuned, I am relieved that the new bigger turbo did not take any of the enjoyment away. I never really felt it to be too laggy for the mountain roads. I did not push her hard again, because I still need a tune.

Do you like living on the edge? Your negative battery terminal is so damn close to your positive. That is just asking for trouble if you ask me.

It actually looks closer in that shot. The battery is temporary and I tied down the little fuse box so it won't touch.

That looks cramped! Time for a radiator re-locate.

G is right car looks great you've done a lot of great work to it your set up looks similar to my old set up variations I have an aluminum radiator similar to the one you have.

Keep an eye on your radiator and your silicon coupler, if you do a lot of driving and a lot of pulls that tab is going to start making contact with your coupler.

Happened to me I had a fp18g, HX-40, fp3065 and now a HTA3586. One of the best mods I ever did was change that upper intercooler pipe to a one piece hard pipe.

No more damaged coupler and no more piping hitting the radiator while racing or hard pulls, and that's with poly ureathane mounts all the way around.

Hi Edd!! Yes, I have been taking good care of her and enjoying her.

Thank you and than you for the advise. If the radiator tab does contact, I set it up so it will touch the tbolt clamp and not the coupler but I will look into potentially having a hard pipe made for the radiator.
Are you going to make MOD this year?

It been some time since I updated the thread. I installed the ECMlink Speed Density cable, tapped the upper intercooler pipe and installed the IAT sensor, installed the MAP sensor, and the E85 fuel sensor. The wiring is all done for when I get tuned on SD I just connect the ECM link cable to the OEM MAF cable. I also installed the SS fuel feed line, Bosch battery, and massaged the IC pipe coming out of the turbo for much better fitment.

Last week I installed a Turbo Performance Products FP manifold blanket to try and keep some heat away from the charge pipe and the rest of the engine. You can literally touch it after a long run by hand.








Went to a local Mitsu meet a couple months ago and took a few shots with a locals Evo III replica. It is a full Evo III conversion.

802 also hit a milestone some months ago. It hit 200,000 miles and I wanted to make it a fun and a memorable milestone so I took her on a nice mountain drive so she would turn on it.

Congrats for 200k! Galant looks great as always! I see they have a date for MOD! Don't think I'll make west coast this year!
