Car is in the shop right now, getting mt90 in the transmission, new front wheel bearings, and new wheel studs for the driver front. Found out they were cross threaded upon taking the wheel off for timing belt stuff. Still have not had timing belt checked out yet, but different shop is less than a mile away. Hopefully getting that checked out in the next few days.

About to order a pile of stuff for the Galant coming up also:

-ABS delete kit
-braided brake lines
-non cruise throttle cable
-throttle body shaft seals

and some parts for my spare engine:

-EGR blockoff
-FIAV bypass
-ARP head to exhaust manifold bolts
-BSE

slowly but surely. waiting on some good weather for a detail. Maybe tomorrow?

should I get the FIAV bypass or the block off? JNZ has both. Also, any sensors or any other type of maintenance stuff I should get at this time? I am also getting new coolant hoses for the radiator and the heater core, although may skip since I think they are still in good shape. The radiator is coming out at some point though, I plan to remove the AC and I want all that crap out of the front of my radiator. AC is kinda pointless in Seattle, I have never needed it. Not sure if it works anyway and would rather lose the weight. Maybe the AC stuff would sell to someone down south?

ARP head to exhaust manifold bolts

I just went with new stock mmc bolts and copper nuts with ss washers. Arp is nice but expensive. Not sure if its worth the extra expense here.

I bought the ARP exhaust manifold to turbo bolts.

sorry, yeah I meant the manifold to turbo ones. I am going to replace the manifold to head ones though as well, though likely not ARP. I am not planning to run a buttload of power.

Really shitty, guy I bought the car from used the wrong lug nuts, all of my wheel studs seem to be jacked up now. Idiot…


Pretty bummed, almost feel like buying this car was a mistake.

Order in bulk. Or get used.
Who would purposely cross thread all there lugs and feel safe?

There is no rust, I checked it out pretty thoroughly. I'm feeling better about the car now, was pretty mad earlier. Just gotta suck it up and move on.

Gave the car a bit of love today, it needed some self esteem after the troubles it's had lately.

First off, gave it some fresh NGK plugs and wires, then cleaned the engine bay. I forgot to do a before, but here it is now. I plan on doing some more passes to really get the details.




and I gave it a wash. The car really needs a detail, but weather/temperature has prevented that for the meantime. You can see the only flaw in the paint, some clear coat peeling further back on the passenger side + faded trim. The car will be very slick once I get it detailed.




Can anyone tell me what these lines go to? They are not hooked up, I couldn't see where they go. They are coming out from under the coil pack. For now, I just stuck them together.




I am off to detail the interior now. Maybe I'll post up some pictures later.

The hoses go to the fuel pressure and Waste gate control. Also the canister lines. The bracket under the intake will have some hard lines attached to it.

OK, seems the engine has had some vac lines switched around:

-waste gate is running off the nipple on the hard pipe coming off the turbo to the intercooler. Sounds very wrong.
-FPR is running off a nipple towards middle front of the intake manifold
-Boost control solenoid is not fully hooked up, there is a funky loop that doesn't do anything and one line isn't hooked up

the FPR is ok bypassed but if you were worried about hot starting then you can install it again.

wastgate is ok for now as its just running off of the wastegate spring.

and I looped the boost control solenoid as it was a MAJOR vac leak before so you could get home. and make a deal with that "guy".

Ok thanks for the information! I feel like the car is running a lot better with the new plugs/wires and capping those other two extra vacuum lines. Car seems to still idle a bit high, but I can deal with that for now.

Also I don't think the car has a charcoal cannister anymore, looked around for it but didn't see one.

Car looks great. A nice rust free example. Everything looks original, even the radiator. I would look in to replacing that soon for good measure. I don't remember if you did the water pump timing belt yet. I would do it at that time.

Thank you for your input, the timing belt was done, I did not do the water pump because, I found out the timing belt that was replaced was only 10 or 20 thousand miles old, the water pump was done at that time.

I am likely swapping in my fresh long block in february if all goes to plan, so the car will have a new engine with new everything on it anyway. I may do a radiator at that time also, been looking into scirocco style.

There is really no reason to go with such a radiator unless you are planning to remove AC and move the radiator to the condenser location in order to fit a really large turbo. If you have working AC, I would suggest you keep it.

I don't know if it works or not, haven't tried. I would do the scirocco radiator in order to put it where the condenser goes, yes. I don't plan to run a huge turbo though.

Then why do a Scirroco radiator? Just for the hell of it or for aesthetics? The stock radiator or a stock replacement works great. I can think of better ways to spend mod money, but it's your car...

Hell of it, free up some room. It's just an idea at this point, I got plenty of other things I am taking care of first. Your boyfriend G suggested I replace the stock one though.

G suggested replacing it because that upper plastic endtank is starting to look old. He didn't suggest a nonstock replacement.

Get a koyo. Perfect fit. I can't imagine what that 22 year old radiator looks like on the inside. Has to be corroded, i'm surprised it doesn't leak yet.
