Bought a new set of 4 bolt axle cups from Jnz

Went to junk yard and got an extra set of seat belt buckles for some evo seat. Will be getting rear diff that was rebuilt back from TRE on Friday! Have a bunch of things I want to get done on the galant.

And got my rebuilt transmission back from TRE today

Jon has been in contact throughout the whole build but usually him calling me. So basically it his stage 2 build with Evo 3 1st, double 2nd, 3rd and 4th from 93-99 (Jon recommended just in case for higher rpm shifting) and 4 spider center diff.
I sent the transmission on 10/14 and it arrived 11/9 but I arranged to have it held at FedEx till I was off work. not sure when it will go in but still have parts to buy.

A buddy of mine used TRE for a rebuild/upgrade to his Evo VIII trans. Best shifting Mitsu trans i've ever experienced. He was a good friend of mine and let me drive that car since the day he bought it new off the lot in 03. I can say that the TRE trans felt even better. I hope to do the same eventually, but have been kind of on the fence because it seemed like a bunch of people had experienced slow turn around and difficult communication.

Glad to hear you've had a good experience thus far, and that turn around time is awesome!

That sounds awesome! I have read that others love TRE's work. Can't wait to get it in with the rear diff and broken in. Will have to research if I can use my front axles or if I have to get 1g dsm's and if the GSX transfer case also work.
After talking to him multiple times on the phone prior to work starting I was happy with Jon wanting to build this transmission for my specific build and deires for the car. One thing is you can't get him by phone cause his messages are always full

There are a lot of nice parts here. I'm excited to see them all come together in your build. It's crazy to see what this car started as, and where it's at now. Keep up the great work!

Thanks to Pot for getting me shorter bolt for the throttle body and working with me on getting shorter ones. Amazing seller!!

So here is little update, I have only driven the galant a couple times in the past month. Still runs great! But I have it sitting in my parents garage for the time being.
For Christmas got some Amazon gift cards and bought this

Got a decent deal on a set of eagle rods

Bought a set of FIC 1150cc injectors

Oil pan was pretty beat up so got a spectra oil pan

Decided to spend a little bit of money so got a full Oem engine gasket kit, Oem timing kit with gates water pump, arp head studs, oil pan bolt kit, valve cover bolt kit, some other Oem hardware, rear main seal with separator, acl bearings, and wiseco hd pistons from JNZ. Then got a bare 6 bolt block.
Still have a handful of things I need/want to buy: like Jay's active rear toe eliminator, more Oem parts, maybe some cams (I have a set of BC 272s but not sure if I'll use them), act clutch, and few other things.

Also have to install 3kgt calipers, pads, and rotors with the master cylinder.

So did a little work on the galant today:
Installed the 1g 3kgt calipers from rockauto using tunersnation brackets and 2g 3kgt stoptech rotors. I have another set that need to be rebuilt but they were painted black which probably put up for sale if I can find the rebuild kit with replacement pistons. I think I like these unpainted a little better. Will have to replace brake line as one part cracked while trying to unscrew from the old calipers. I'll see if I get another set.

Then the 3g master cylinder went in. Followed the set up for Brett (GSTwithPSI) thanks for the idea!

Will bleed the brake either Monday or Wednesday.

Got the Jay's rear toe eliminator in. Will have them welded onto a spare set of trailing arms that I will clean up and then paint.

Got in a set of AEM cam gears also

Have to go to my brothers and pick up a set of Evo 560cc injectors and Evo 9 bov. Still more parts coming in tomorrow.

Aem Cam gears have come a long way since mine came out. Those are very nice.
I like the clean metal look of the brakes too, but you best put a clear coat on those calipers before they turn brown.

Edit: do the brackets too.
