I dig those Corbeaus man. Had a set in my 2g, some of the most comfortable seats I've ever had. I'd like to get a set in the Galant one of these days.

I got rid of the seats, corbeau's wide option. imo, is not an option for the galant.

I also had the car for sale but i couldn't get my asking price. so i now rent a garage.
I want her back on the road asap so she will be seeing alot of lift time for the below in the next few weeks.

complete drive shaft rebuild
rear end needs to get re shimmed
need a solution for the 044 pump noise
pass rear axle needs a new boot
replace cracked valve cover
the brake booster needs its own vacuum source
throttle body rebuild then another boost leak test
fix power steering rack leak
tune on the street
fine tune on a dyno

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.

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?

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.

finally got to the drive shaft earlier today, i couldn't find a 2 arm puller big enough to get under a bottom socket.


the rear differential flange union joint was a bitch, it only turned on one axis, took 30 min to get through this.


smh these were in bad shape


all done



thanks to Jafro's video, for making this a walk in the park.
next: shimming the rear diff (wish there was a walk through for this)

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. Try and get the clamp on the boot super tight too. Everything is looking great though. It's nice to see people doing things to make their cars dependable.

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.
