Hi

I have an early 1993 7g model which is carbureted. Front wheel drive, 4G63 SOHC, left hand drive and it has a super saloon badge.
It's not really clear where are these from exactly.

Also couldn't find any user or service manual anywhere. if anyone have something close to this one let me know.

I attached a underhood picture of it although i should mention number of things you see is not factory like the carburetor, radiator and etc.

It looks like a model for the middle east perhaps? I'm guessing that's where you are currently?

It should be similar to the European E55A Galant except having a carburetor instead of multi port fuel injection. I am unsure what other vehicles have the carburetor 7-bolt 4G63 SOHC 16V.

E55A.That helps thank you.
Yes i am. funny thing is these are very mainstream here pretty much all of them are carbureted and the only EFI versions would be the 6G GTI DOHC.
Carburetors on these are not really reliable tough so people often change them.

Any service manual available?

Not many 7th gen VR4 owners...if any and even 8th gen. Majority of the owners here are 6th gen E38a/E39a owners.

Very rare to see a carbed 7th gen...I have seen a few of them in the Philippines. Is yours a SOHC 4G64?

I own a 96 7g which I installed a turbo on the SOHC 4g64 and ran that setup for almost 8 years. Daily drove it and even did some road course events on 12psi before I tore it down to convert to DOHC. Still in the process of doing so among other things.

Here are a couple pics before the teardown.

That, sir, is beautiful. I like the actual looks of the 8g the most, but that is super nice.

Thanks fellas!

Just got the engine harness modified for the DOHC swap. Hopefully I will get back to finishing it up in a few months.

Oh my...
I've been sharing this picture around as a great example of a proper 7g for a long time.
I can't believe i've finally found the owner
What are the rims it's rocking? they suit the car very well!

Mine would be the 4g63 version and i am planning for an EvoIII conversion.

I'm planning to do this on a mighty max. Do you have any notes or pictures you care to share?

Sorry for the thread jack

Thank you...the build is taking long but looking to make more progress later this year. I already had the harness modified, just need to clean it up a bit more.

Wheels are Rota sub Zeros 18x9 +31 offset but I no longer have them...I am going back to 17's with a meatier tire setup.

Once I make more progress with the car I will update the build thread which I have on Galant Tuners. Right now just keeping the bottom end stock and slapping on a "stockish" head and sort out any issues and see how much power a "stock" motor will handle. Not building a drag car...more a road course car so most of my attention is the suspension and drivetrain. Power goals are modest..maybe 400ish which is reasonable and still able to keep it "reliable" and easy turn key and drive with a/c. I just want to have a fun to drive car...I am also leaning on converting it to AWD, I have majority of the parts for the swap.

18's to 17's hmmm... Ride quality was the issue?
An AWD conversion will be very interesting, where can i follow you for the project?
