Hey guys. I'm Chris and i have had my 96 Galant since 07. We have been through a lot together. Currently is is 5 speed swapped, rear disc swapped and converted to the 7G VR4 facelift body style which includes the front bumper, side skirts, spoiler, tail lights and head lights. I swapped from single pistons to 2g GSX calipers with GVR4 rotors and have done a lot of other stuff and am in the midst of a big project to come with this thing.Multi colors ATM as i swapped on new fenders and a carbon fiber hood





no that is not my GVR4 either that is Dynastylcd's old vr4

Thats a cool car I dont know much about them. Does it have the vr-4 engine it or it the stock US engine? Also I would love to see more pictures of the engine and the AWD system that you've put in it.

I am currently in the works of getting an AWD shell. To convert these you use 2G DSM parts and some modification here and there. right now it is the stock US 4G64 single cam but last summer i bought a 1994 Galant GS which has a 2.4 DOHC and i am building that up soon, already have the head built just need to finish the block.

Wow. like the look of the GSX wheels on that last car.

Why did you do a 5 speed swap? That chassis was available with manual trans.

5 speed swap was because up until 2010 this was automatic. I had done all maintenance and I knew what was new what else needed to be done soon. Also I did the swap with mostly new parts for around 700 bucks. Instead of searching for a clean 5 speed car, which I did try, and then selling my car I just swapped this one. Very easy swap and worth it. Couldn't find another galant like mine with leather either. I owned a 1994 galant GS for a little stock 5 speed dohc but didn't like it the way I did mine so I sold the shell and am building the motor from it for my car.

And to the other galant, nice 5 lug swapped, vr4 preface lift bumper with rare projector fogs and 1 piece JDM head lights. Now for the fenders, did you modify for the signals or actually get the JDM fenders for it? That car looked nice man. What year and setup ended up in there?

Really hit the nail on the head with the auto trannies being weak

That's a sweet setup. I am planning to push this car pretty far hoping for AWD and 450 wheel daily driven. Built 2.4 DOHC. The 2.4 DOHC came with a forged crank and oil squirters. Forged rods and pistons. FP3 cams, FP beehives, Ferrea valves etc. turbo setup is a little creation. It started as an fp green but will be a 25G w/ antisurge cover ported 2g manifold with tial 40 on it. Worst case that setup will be on a FWD car which will be fine but I want AWD

Wow that sound really good pretty nice set up i think about do that too (AWD) but i was having my VR4 with 400hp plus and this one was my daily with a\c and everything so thats why i decide not to do it.

The only thing that i couldn't find was the rear bumper it is super really hard to find.... Have you tried to see if you could find one?

If you mean a VR4 rear bumper, there is no special bumper. It is just shorter because of no crash bar. Did it have the side skirts like mine as well? My ideal exterior would be this with 5 lug and some Evo wheel. I think this setup will be very goo when I get it going.

Nice car. I'd like to see pics of the conversion.

BTW you should pull the pic from your sig. If we all did that the board would crawl.

Quoting GalantTuner10:







Hey Chris, welcome aboard.

I know you're currently sporting mis-matched sheetmetal, but I gotta say it - those off-color bits make your hood look fucking incredible. Before you re-spray everything, you really ought to consider preserving that look, maybe continuing that contrasting color up the pillars, over the roof, and down the back. Crazy hotness right there.

Question for all you 7g Galant guys with the 2.4 7 bolt 4G64's. Do they all burn oil really bad? The reason I ask is because I have owned a few of the Summit/Colt Vista/Expo wagons with the same engine and every one of them burns oil. Other than that they ran like a top and had perfect compression.

Also there is a 94 Galant GS in the local junkyard . White with a sunroof, 5 speed car too. Wish I could have gotten it before someone junked it. It's the 3rd one I've found locally in the junkyard too.

I have had 3 7gs and mine have all been good with oil. Also, is the motor in that GS? Very valuable as it has a factory forged crank and oil squirters and of course DOHC, and they were factory spoiler cars so their rear cover has no provisions for the 3rd brake light and it cleans up the look when put on a spoiler w/ brake light. I have a GS rear cover in my car.

Also in regards to color I really like the white but I have a friend with the same exact body conversion in white, but I have thought of painting the main body white then do the roof and pillars black like the talons have but idk how it would look. Latest idea was all black and paint the hood black as well because the clear always faded on CF parts.

The whole Sirius family of engines are known to burn oil quite bad, some engines burn oil right from new and some are fine for 200,000+ miles. The main issue is that the bores are really really hard and to counteract the hard bores Mitsubishi fitted softer rings to aid bedding in quicker and this lead to premature wearing and oil burning. Another issue is some of the top compression rings get fitted upside down by mistake in the factory. Some of the later 2.4 engines (mostly the GDI versions) also suffer from oil gumming up around the oil control ring drain hole and can be fixed by drilling out the drain holes larger, cleaning out the ring grooves and fitting new rings.
