My name is Cory. I just recently totaled my WRX and ended up with a Galant VR4. I owned a couple of 1gs before the GVR4, so I'm not new to DSMs. We go to the EVO/DSM shootout every year, so any who goes next year keep a lookout for us. We had the galant there this last year. Anyways, onto some pics

Cory, the OP, is my little brother. The wheels are stock 2000 Nissan Sentra rims. He had a 2002 WRX, made 325whp before it died.

I am glad that you are ok, but all of this is for the best. Mitsubishi FTW.

Yeah, he hit pretty hard. His own fault and liabiltiy insurance, definately a lesson learned the hard way.

P.S. I was glad to hear you made it home from Norwalk okay. I'm Craig, the one with the black STI

Anyone know if I can use an A.C.T. clutch disc with a SPEC pressure plate? The car currently has a SPEC clutch kit, but the disc needs replaced due to a oil pan leak that covered it. I always run A.C.T. clutches so I would like to stick with what I know works. Plus the street disc is cheaper than a SPEC replacement disc.

On a related side not, we just installed some Torque Solution driveshaft bushings this week. The car feels so much better. To say the stock bushings were worn out would be a major understatement. Only paid $40 for AWD Motorsports.

I found a picture of the car from right after we bought it floating around in my photobucket album. 100% bone stock except wore out KYB AGXs with Eibach springs. I need to post of a pic of the engine bay when we bought it. It was nasty.

So I just officially bought the car from my little brother. He missed his Subaru too much, and is back in a WRX. I have big plans for the car in the next few months.

-DSM 4 bolt rear end with 5 lug hubs
-Coil on plug ignition
-new rims and tires
-new front rotors and pads
-Pulling drivetrain to put in a new clutch disc, fix a few last random oil leaks and a broken water pump bolt.
-EVO ecu running in speed density

I already have the 4 bolt/hubs and rims, plus alot of other random parts. I want to replace all the bushing and other wear items, and take it apart and paint it. So that has been my hold up. Plus I wanted to finish up the setup on my STI I have been working on for a few years, before I started major surgery on the Galant. I need to do some cleaning in the garage as well.

Anyways, just wanted to share my excitement of the car finally being mine. You guys will be hearing alot more from me now. I'm bored with my Subaru and ready to dive in wallet first on the GVR4.

The ones in the first pics? They are off of a 2000 Nissan Sentra SE. My friend Mark painted them Summit White.

So 1501 is officially on JSB status for the first time since I have owned it. $2,500 spent on parts so far, none of which add any HP , and I haven't even drove the thing yet. Let the mad rush to get it together in time for the DSM/EVO Shootout begin!









Some fun finds of DSM-esque junk during my day

Not all of the control arm bolts were tightened when a P.O. installed new ones


Hose clamps on AN line???


Huge T-case leak, found out 4/5 bolts were installed


I forgot to get pics of the best two surprises. My steering rack is junk, leaking everywhere with both boots torn. Plus one of my strut top hats rusted in half and completely separated once the car went on jack stands and put downward weight on it.
