It's time for me to liquidate some vehicles. I'll probably regret selling this one the most, since it's such a nice example.
The first is what used to be my DadĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s 1992 Galant VR-4 #282/1000. It was purchased by him when it was one year old, and had 22K on it. The chassis now has 135K on it, and is in excellent shape. It spent most of its life sitting in my parents garage when it wasnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t being driven, which as you can tell by the mileage was periodic at best. IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘d say in the last three years itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s had less than 500 miles put on it. I did all of the maintenance since we bought it, and IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve replaced a lot of the original parts with upgraded stuff. I got it from him about a year and a half ago, and proceeded to go through it again to replace what needed to be replaced.
Here is a rundown of the vehicle:
Chassis has 132K on it, has original paint, in very good shape. ItĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s not perfect, but it still looks awesome when itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s cleaned up.
Engine has about 500 miles on it since I rebuilt it.
New OEM rings
New OEM bearings
New OEM timing belt and tensioner
New OEM water pump
Rebuilt cylinder head
Stock cams and compression
All new OEM gaskets and seals everywhere
Turbo kit is the original HKS T4 turbine kit:
T4 cast manifold, ceramic coated
T42 turbo with a .48a/r T4 hot side
HKS cast O2 housing
50mm HKS racegate that dumps back into the O2 housing
Heat shields (that I didnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t install, since I like the look of the ceramic coated kit)
Cast aluminum lower IC pipe.
Other things IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve done to the car:
5 lug swap with OEM 97 Eclipse 5 spoke chrome wheels with fresh tires
Eprom ECU with custom chip with revised timing maps
Spearco FMIC with the 2-178 core and 2.5Ă˘â‚¬Âť stainless pipes
4 bolt rear end
DSM steering wheel
ACT 2900lb clutch that for some reason feels much lighter than that.
Supra fuel pump
Race-built trans, with the older, stronger, 3-4 setup and double synchro 2nd gear. The best shifting trans IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve ever driven in ANY DSM.
Car has KYB AGXs on the front and GR-2s on the rear, but they could be replaced due to age at this point.
Full 3Ă˘â‚¬Âť exhaust with high flow cat, and the car is QUIET. Not gonna get pulled over driving this around.
Old school VDO 0-30psi boost gauge on the A-pillar.
4WS was eliminated recently when one of the lines to the rear started leaking, which lead to the 4bolt swap.
Car uses Talon shifter, with black leather shift boot.
New alternator installed.
JDM clear corner lights
Front suspension has some Energy Suspension bushings installed, along with front swaybar bushings.
AC still blows ice cold.
OEM radio with tape deck/CD combo.
Sunroof car, works fine.
Have both OEM keys to the car, but no FOB.
Car has original owners manual and window sticker.
ABS no longer works, since I didn't feel like swapping the tooth rings on the hubs when I did the 5 lug conversion.
I'm going to miss this car, because of how nice it is. The only problem is that I never drive it. I was in it recently, and noticed that although the PA inspection ran out on it, they write the mileage on the stickers from when it was inspected last. Well, since it got inspected in October of 07, it's had about 300 miles put on it. Hopefully somebody else will put it to better use.
I will include whatever stock parts I have that I removed from this car, including the stock air can, K&N filter, MAF, steering wheel, etc.
I don't *have* to sell this car, but I think there's probably someone out there that wants a nice, clean, NOT HACKED GVR4, that was modified nicely.
Thanks for the space. I'll be posting another one shortly, although I haven't quite committed to selling the other one yet.
