    Ecu going out? Popping noise from dash

    Did you smell an awful smell around about the same time as the popping noises? I would pull out the ECU and check the caps and IACV drivers anyway. Your IACV could have coolant leaking into it which shorts out the driver resisters and does other damage too. Alternatively it could be capacitor...

    piston ring gap is massive?

    Those group measurements are referring to the thickness of the rings. First group is top ring at 1.2mm, second group is second ring at 1.5mm, and then oil control rings are 3.0mm in diameter. However I believe these rings are for the 7 bolt engines, as I am sure the 6 bolt E39A Galant VR-4 rings...

    Engine Vibration AFTER timing belt / water pump service - HELP!?!

    I'm guessing it's one of three things:1) The first shop who messed up your timing belt job did something that damaged the belt - wrong bolts in the wrong place, belt tension too loose etc2) Your crank pulley split (this happens due to age and is a common problem) and the excessive vibration...

    Has it been done before ? 3000GT V6 TT engine in 91 or 92 Galant VR4

    The factory Getrag 5/6 speed transmission is just too big to fit with the existing subframe. You could probably fit the V6 but retain a W5M33 5 speed from a factory V6 car, though I don't know what car in the US would exist with such a transmission - in Japan, Europe, Australia and NZ the 3000GT...

    ABS issues... after installing new coilovers

    it's actually a different system to the ABS fitted to the USDM and facelift JDM models - but I have no idea if it is better or worse. I feel it is worse. Having said that - the ABS in my '91 JDM functions well and I feel it improves braking distances had it not had ABS.

    Is the E38A a vr4?

    No it just means it is 4G63 powered and AWD without 4WS. E39A is 4G63 with AWD and 4WS. Both E38A and E39A can come non-turbo and therefore not a VR-4.

    Are they 4x114.3mm PCD? If so will be a lesser model first gen S40/V40. I think the only other 4 lug Volvos were the 300 / 400 / 480 series which I didn't think made it to the US? They are 4x100mm PCD anyway.

    02 Volvo s40 rims

    To be honest the Carisma was a big flop. Why they named something with dreary looks and boring performance a 'Carisma', I will never know.The Carisma went on to form the basis of the Proton Waja where one model was even sold with the FTO's 6A12 DOHC V6 engine.

    The S40/V40 rims are a perfect fit because they are made for Mitsubishi hubs to begin with. The 1st gen S40/V40 is a Mitsubishi Carisma (European version of the Lancer/Mirage) under the skin.
