I bought 501 back in early June of '08; at the time the car was relatively stock with the exception of the fmic, intake, and an AFPR. The car looked to be in fantastic shape and basically lived it's whole life down in the south! Shortly after bringing her home I found out the trans was on it's last leg, changing the oil looked more like panning for gold, and in general she was in need of a mechanical makeover.

I had a DSM that I was working on which after five years of arduous planning, labor, and parts purchasing was totaled during the break in process. As a result, most of the parts from the Talon are now being installed in the Galant.
