So I found this vr4 1 mile from my house that was on a dead end road.
I work for the post office and had to fill in for this route and thatís when I found it.
The owner said itís been parked for the past 5 years (yes, literally parked 1 mile from my house for 5 years) after money shifting it.
The engine locked up and supposedly didnít attempt to start it.
After I got it home, the first thing I did was give it a good pressure washing.



Cleaned up the interior and vacuumed.



I started pulling the head and the timing belt had 80% of the teeth sheered off.



With the head removed, all of the valves were bent and one broken.





I started disassembling the head and really concerned with what the previous owner was thinking. Do you see it?



I drained the oil and thereís a very fine glitter with no chunks. The crank spins freely with no snags. I was going to pull the pan but after seeing everything, Iím going to pull the block and either drop my 6 bolt out of my gsx in it or rebuild this engine since it seems salvageable with a spare head I have on the shelf just to get it on the road. Just figured you guys would like to see the fuckery of this car. My wife and son says itís ugly so it has the nickname Big Ugly. Iíve got to find a few interior parts and replace or rebuild the rear calipers before itís road ready. The body seems to be in great shape so Iím just hoping the trans/diff is good.



And of course, had to have a little fun while I was washing 6 years worth of dirt off it.



Iíll keep you guys updated on the car as well as possibly post tutorials on anything I do thatís not covered already. Enjoy!

Sure is! Other than a Ching Chong turbo that was put on right before the damage, this car is pretty much stock. Not only factory intake/exhaust but still has the tb/cas brace, ps heat shield, all emissions, no vacuum deletes, etc. and PLENTY of rat turds. Honestly I wanted to keep everything on the car but itís a pain to work on so Iíll probably get rid of emissions, block off fiav and get rid of the turbo cooling lines and possibly switch to a ff ofh if it will fit. Long time DSMer btw, Iíve owned over 30, still have my main 98 gsx, and 6 non running/parts cars.
Here are some more pics of the galant.




My 98 GSX, stock block, hx35 build.

Stoked to see another one saved!

If you end up ditching that stock intake and maf, I believe there was somebody on here hunting for one. Iíll go looking for their s/n.

Edit: Their screen name is deedo.
