^Yeah, looks pretty nasty with those wheels and drop.

My friend has an '02 GTS. I was never a huge fan until i spent some time driving it, and then learning about it. Now, i'd really like to get my hands on a coupe.

It was on the back burner after the Viper, however the Shootout has me excited about it again. Right now, I'm budgeting for cnc ported heads and a cam for the Viper($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$), but do intend to put the labor hours in on the G in the mean time. My buddy and I just did a cleanup/organization of the shop. I was going work on it Sunday, but was too hung over and did house work instead lol.


In the mean time, my buddy did get some pretty okay shots of the V.

Haha, I don't think I could let it go for 3 Galants.
Thanks though guys, it really is a dream come true.

I brought the bumper for the G with me to work and started on it early this morning. When my co workers came in they couldn't even fathom what I was doing. "Why didn't you just get a new bumper" "that's from a talon?" "You've got your work cut out" They've never seen the car and they think I'm nuts.

I am.

I've decided to start in the front and work to the rear of the car, not progressing until each part is complete. Bouncing around from project to project within the car is overwhelming. Small bites!

Not only did I finally decide on a color, I got to put some down tonight


Every once in a while I've gotta show the guys in the shop I'm not just a paper pusher.

Mmm, crisp white.
I mixed W37, Wicked White, but omitted the gold toner to brighten it up a bit. Obviously I couldn't just have an off the shelf color. haha



Little dry spray near the back there... Shit'll buff out

Ah, at long last, some updates. Looking good! I'm liking that bumper even more now with paint and fitting. Nice bumper supports there.

Got any undercarriage pics of the viper? That generation had some cool aero IIRC.

Aero. Ha, yeah it's got that. It works great for catching sockets,bolts and other assorted parts that you drop. Requiring an extra 20 mins to jack up the car and remove it all to retrieve your stuff. I guess it's worth having when you're doing 170 though. Not that I've ever done that or anything.. . I can grab some pics of the underside when I change the oil.

Okay so I got the Viper and kinda forgot about this for a while. Worked on the viper non stop since I got it. I re lipped, barreled a set of ccw classics and put a juicy drag radial on it. Got stupid,

So now, were up to date on that. I was going to supercharge it this winter, but then.. shootout..
I think the Viper is now "done", just gonna be a fun street car.

I started working on the galant again. I'd like to race it at the 2019 Shootout.
I've accepted that it wont be completely painted, and as done as I'd like, but I have to start moving on it.

Thanks^

intake

On another note, has anyone built anything to eliminate the thermostat housing/water neck, without going electric wp? That will be my next project, looking for idears.

How did you get that FRH intake to seal properly? I got the same one and made a gasket using the original as a stencil and it leaks like crazy all around and through the bolts. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

Alot of newer hybrids use electric wp and there may be a model which you might be able to use the thermostat housing from. Just a thought.


Awesome cars btw.

I'm not sure if it's sealed or not to be honest. I can't remember for sure, but I think mine is "updated". I really think that someone had China knockoff the original Forrester, but either way my lower section is cut for an O ring, it does not use a gasket. Maybe that's how they all are?? It's been nearly 10 years since I did any homework.

I don't think a car with an electric water pump would use a thermostat? The pcm would control the pump speed as needed?? I don't have any first hand experience with OEM so I'm jus' thinking out loud.

Been really looking forward to an update here man...so i'm pretty stoked to see the progress.

Are you still using that charge pipe that you integrated into the frame rail? I always really liked that.
VC and plumbing looks great.

Are you now running a dry sump or am I missing something with that valve cover?
