figured i would make a new post showing whats going on. i dont really have the attention span to keep updating my Galant like i should. but i have decided that the Galant is priority, and progress WILL BE MADE. and im gonna try to keep this updated.


so basic list has been made:
tuning
tires are shit
steering rack is leaking
need LSD/axles
brakes are just "ok"
want coilovers
ALIGNMENT!!!

couple others on the list, gonna call it phase 2:
quicker spool and more power
stereo system is weak
seats? steering wheel?
still need 92 grill
remove chrome crap



anyway on to pics...


scored a 92-93 AWD DSM rack since mine is leaking...

dont mind the Integra, she is on some serious JSB after trying to make some music with the valves (bent every one lol)




"4bolt" rear axles = stronger that the 3bolts in my car
4bolt LSD rear end axles
5 lug rear hubs/stubs/rotors (gonna turn the rotors at work)



oh, didnt mention this above. think i have a couple junk lifters. seem to not pump up when cold/low RPMs. and randomly get 1-2ticks when running. so i picked up some fresh ones. also have a valve cover gasket set around somewhere.



ECMLink v3... 3rd time? i would prefer to tune her on AEM, but my box is broken... someone come tune my car.



eprom ecu... still need to finish socketing it.

MORE PARTS!

thats my buddies work bench btw. mine is covered in misc H22/Honda parts at the moment.
Centric 5lug front rotors
Hawk HPS front pads
5lug front hubs (thanks coyotes)
new bearings and inner/outer seals
freshly turned 5lug rear rotors
Posi-Quiet rear pads
couple of oil filters from Mitsu cuz i had them on the phone.

i also tried cleaning up the rear diff...isnt show quality shiny, just less dirty.


so i need to order some fresh oils for tcase/diff/trans... (engine only has 1000miles on its oil) i got some washers at work to seal those up. and waiting on my coilovers, and buddy to get some tires for his EVO so i can steal his wheels...



already making plans for my phase 2. entered negotiations for fresh turbo kit, maybe some seats... need to finish what i have started above first (begining to see my attention span issue?). hoping to set that rolling next month with tax refund/selling Honda shit.

was nice meeting you too, i would like to meet more of the VR4 community also, only met a couple so far. usually i would talk more, but i dont care about what my boss thinks. i didnt want to leave the guys stranded at the back counter for too long.

i went to go throw those hubs on my desk, and get a comment about the pile getting bigger LOL. dont think they have even seen half the stuff in even the last pic.

so i was thinking. i know what my Galant looks like, you guys might not.


this is most recent






took these right after i got my 93 headlights and fresh bumper markers.


there is a Spearco 2-216 (Indyracecore) hiding in there believe it or not.


engine bay is looking pretty shitty. still plan on doing some cleaning up under there. not in my parts pile, but i do have a nicer valve cover that i have plans for. the MAFT is going away, and might end up redoing the charge pipes, might just modify as needed, we will see how my plans of bigger power go.

I don't know what it is, but the USDM front bumpers look a million times better when they are uncut, IMO. Good job not hacking it all up.

I need to find a nice set of 93 headlights too, yours look great.

yeah. I was super happy to find those 93 headlight. feel they help the look of the car.

I don't like the look of the cut US bumper either. but I would like to get some more air to that 2-216. I would like to try to cut out just the black horizontal areas. but not sure how it would look when done, or if I have a steady enough hand for it.

I did the same on the Integra.

I don't really care to hack up the bumper. maybe its cuz I feel its hacked? or I don't care about the going factor anymore? first couple projects back when I was 18-20yo I cut some bumpers. thinking I'm at cut 2, uncut 6, plus one just didn't have an intercooler lol.

Agreed, looks nice. it's so easy to make hondas look ricey but that one is clean and simple. Makes me miss my GSR.

lol. thanks guys. I have a buddy that has done DSM/evo's forever. he always gives me a little shit for the Honda's but always gives them credit for looking good, but not being fast. lol.

and its not fast. even with LSD in the trans it just spins both tires. made 290whp/258fttq @13psi. non-vtec.



oh and its jsb:

haha.

Quoting turbohf:

I don't like the look of the cut US bumper either. but I would like to get some more air to that 2-216. I would like to try to cut out just the black horizontal areas. but not sure how it would look when done, or if I have a steady enough hand for it.




I've seen this tried, and it never seems to turn out well. The problem is, those small horizontal areas provide structural support for the slats in the bumper. If you cut them out, the slats sag and look like shit. At that point, you should probably just cut them out completely.

I'd bet even with the bumper completely uncut, it flows pretty well. Of course, not as well as a completely cut bumper, but there is a good amount of air moving through there.

I don't mind the cut bumper, but the edges need further modificaiton in order to look right. I am going to take mine off and clean it up later this season.

so shitty update... buddy that was/is going to sell me his EVO8 wheels is at school, and probably not coming back for a week or 2. sucks. but gives me another min to try to find some EVO IX GSR/RS Enkei's that i REALLY have been wanting for a while. no one seems to have them or want to sell them.

i have tracking number for coilovers i might just throw these on to see whats up. but my springs (eibach) for my Civic (oh yeah, i have a civic also...too many cars) are showing up before that, and i would like to swap the Cusco coilovers off that and onto buddies car so i can get some big dollars to buy more shit i dont need for the Galant. yeah i got issues. anyway, more updates coming as parts get here i assure you! lol



PLEASE LET ME KNOW if you see my EVO9 Enkei;s forsale anywhere!


the civic:

just my 'daily driver' beater pile Civic... was stupid cheap (probably less than 1000bucks into it) it has AC, and gets 32-38mpg depending on traffic.

ok, so i finished socketing my EPROM ECU... what a bitch. ECU was covered in this coating shit. and i HATE removing factory eproms from boards. my baller Weller soldering station is doing odd things? tip is getting hot, but not really melting solder. had to finish with junk/spare radioshack special.


installed

then i zero'ed out the MAFT (important step lol)


success!!!



big thing of the day is that the Integra is no longer JSB... someone needs to buy the fucker, then i can have 100% focus on the Galant, and i can park it inside.

then i bring stack of cash to another friends house that builds fast DSM/EVO's...




and now im broke again... shit happened quick this time...

Magnus divided T4 manifold w/44 v-band
T67 T4 .84 P-trim divided turbine
V-band O2
V-band downpipe (probably gonna cut this up)
dump tune for v-band 44mm wastegate


yup, just keep dumping money into this car... see whats up with the evo8 wheels again this week, if i get those any time soon, i wont be touching the turbo stuff for a while. still want evo9 wheels though...

looks like buddy with the 8's says he is coming back this weekend

i really do want some 9's... probably make those summer, 8's winter...sounds like a solid plan. i know they have pretty deep tread, guessing they are all season tires, Nexen 225-45-17 if i remember right.


im excited. want to get all this brake/suspension stuff taken care of. so then i can start, or finish buying the reat of the turbo parts i need. im sure its a giant list of nickle/dime shit. lol. we THINK it should clear the radiator based on measurements of car it was on.
