So on April 14th I got my self another Galant VR4. It's 152/1000. Can't find any info in the boards about the car though.

My buddy was at work one day and someone backed into him and crunched the rear a bit and pushed it into a concrete pillar. It already had a salvage title, but it was due to the old man that owned it sent it to the junk yard because 2nd gear had blown it's self apart. It's a KG and has working R12 in it.


Currently it runs and drives good and the damage isn't bad. I plan to do an EVO8/9 upgrade(injectors, fuel pump, maf, intercooler, stock frame larger turbo like 16g, 2.5" exhaust with a large resionator, vibrant muffler and a burnt chip to accommodate), replace bushings and suspension parts that are needed and just daily it.









Car is a little ruff and def needs lots of things replaced. So far I've done a rad, thermostat, oil pan, driveshaft, exhaust, shifter bushing, vacuum lines and ISC. I'll be doing suspension, driver half shaft and axle, knock sensor and a few other little things tonight.

Nice pick up. She looks good. Mud flaps are interesting.



Great deal on BC coilovers. Hit me up.

Thanks Charles, the mudflaps we're on the car and I really like them. The car has been nice, it's got working A/C, I just reinstalled the cruise control and it freaking works!! The cruise system was in box in the trunk. The car also has a vsrf 1g intercooler that was cut and set up for the vr4(mimics the ets vr4 core) and a HKS sequential BOV.

I've started to collect my parts and the car is almost ready to be worked on. I got all new wheel bearing and seals, 4 new kyb gr2 struts, 4 new bump stops and dust boots, front kyb top hots, rear top hat bushings, poly front and rear sway bar bushing, all new end links, bought some 3" pipe to make my own ETS style intake, I also spent a bunch with Nate at Performance Part-out getting a tail light, a bunch of interior and little bits. I have everything for "my" upgrade path as well, I went with pte 680's(also from Nate). Only thing I don't have is the ECU chip, as I'm still undecided on a burnt chip or Link.

I got around to installing some parts I bought. I got a walbro 190lph and a B&M fuel filter mount fuel pressure gauge and after installing the car actually runs much smoother. I also bought the eBay drag and drift strut tower bars and I'm extremely impressed with them, $98 each shipped to my door from maylasia and only took 4 days, they are extremely light weight, seem to be good quality and reduced body roll enough to give me 3-7 mph around most of the corners I drive daily and 10 mph around a few light turns. I also got my C&R aluminum radiator in the car out of the old Galant as I'm gonna use a VW rad for the other Galant.

I also bought one of those large arm rests with the front and rear cup holders a loong time ago, had it sitting in box and it works and looks great with the stock shifter and is nice for driving.

I'm sure there is more, but this is what I can remember for now.

Digging the white wheels. I thought about putting white wheels on a black Galant. I was worried it would be over the top. Now, I'm not sure...

Safer choice.

Quoting bobdole:

Thanks man. Yesterday I was able to get dirty with my Galant and install all 4 kyb struts, bump stops, dust boots, front kyb top hats, rear upper bushings, koyo rear wheel bearings w/ OEM dust shield, front and rear sway bar endlinks, front sway bar poly bushings.

I also found some issues that needed my desperate attention.
The drilled and slotted rotors on the car we're all on facing the wrong direct, the two bolts that hold the trans to the frame rail were not in the car at all, each rear caliper bracket only had 1 bolt in it, rear camber and toe adjustment bolts were rusty so I put newer ones in, lower control arms were bent, so I replaced those with spares I had, one of the wheel lugs stripped out so I had to cut off the lug and nut and replace that and I replaced a lot of rusty old bolts.


Gvr4ever: while I didn't mind them white, I did end up painting them flat black while I was doing the work yesterday and I really like how it turned out.

Nice! The missing bolts sound pretty scary. What brand is that rear brace?

Yeah it was, but all better now. The brace is an eBay drag and drift bar from maylasia. $98 shipped to my door.
