Quoting H05TYL:

3000 vr4's were sold in the US, that hardly makes them rare.

Considering the population, that's pretty damn rare. With how many are left out of that original 3000, even moreso. The U.S. only has about 300,000,000 m0ar people than NZ, no bigs.

And don't kid yourself, these cars are a piece of Mitsubishi's history. If the Galant didn't open the door for Mitsu to walk into WRC then none of us would be reading this thread right now.

As for the fuse box and to remove or not to remove, do whatever you want, its your car. Just my personal opinion but I would rather buy a car with the fuse box untouched, unless the owner had catalogged every step with clear, detailed pictures and the quality was evident.

personally, i dont see how id be ruining history. car are just another way we are allowed to express ourselves and our individuality. so no i dont want to go back to hondas but there are different things you can learn from workin on different types of vehicles. tricks and customizimg vehicles are the same yet different for every vehicle. but a wire tuck is a clean and inexpensive way to clean up your engine bay without putting a bunch of high dollar bolt-ons on.
Quoting fivestardsm:

DONT! go back to honda if you want to do that! I have one that the guy started to do a wire tuck. It is not impossible, but your ruining a piece of history, not just one of 100-kabillion other hondas.

This is my opinion. Expescially with the fact that it seems like the GVR4 has twice as many wires as a honda, and not as smart of a harness configuration as the hondas do. I have a couple hondas also, and I can see where you could do it with out a serious issue unlike the VR4. Just deal with it.

Unless you are going for a national champion show car anyway, but then Id still say dont destroy a piece of history.

And again....Not a DSM, DSM's were just another 100-kabillion 2 Door cars that if you wanted to destory, you could easily find another once it was ghettoed and riced out to swap the motor and trans into when you came to your sences and realized that sleeper is a life style of its own.
