Tom, thank you. I know lots of this stuff is common knowledge to the GVR4/DSM community, some may not be. but its nice to see/hear it actually happening on video. your car looks amazing and is an inspiration.

those ice cube trays are a great idea and in running to the dollar store right now for some!

Tom! I wish you had posted your progress of the waste gate tuning before you changed. I think a montero locking diff air pump or an ARB locking diff air pump would've provided the best of both worlds.

Hey Tom. Thanks for doing what you do. I was inspired by your videos for sure. Even one of my roommates who is a girl got a good laugh watching. Keep up the good work.

Quoting GVR4kauai:

I'm rockin a baby seat in the back of mine too! lol And I agree tons of room, easy getting in and out. My daughter always wants to ride in it. She actually got mad because she had to ride in the wifes Vdub, she kept screaming I want to ride In daddy's car lol. She also tells me to go faster and she will yell "make boost daddy" lol! She loves it makes her giggle like I do.

Good to see the car coming along nicely. We have done very similiar mods so far so its been cool to watch ya step by step. Keep up the good work and cool videos bro!! I'll make a video of mine soon once I'm done with all the mods and maybe have it painted. Lucky my friends paint shop is right next to my shop. So getting it done won't be a issue at all. Just not sure if I should paint it the stock BG or something else, wanna keep it stealth looking lol.




Thank you sir and I appreciate the support! I'm glad I'm not the only one carrying their kids around in these old beasts, haha! Oh and be very thankful that you have a friend who owns a paint shop. I got some quotes to get my Grand National painted and ouch, my ass is killing me. I need to make friends with a paint shop owner tootsweet! Good luck with your car and I look forward to seeing it!

Thank you sir, I appreciate that! Good luck if you decide to do the cam swap, here are those instructions in case you need them. It feels like I could probably do this stuff in my sleep by now, but I still love to read over and have good instructions close by. RRE Cam Swap Instructions

Great videos Tom,, they have given me sort of a guide to doing things on my galant. I waited for every video religiously, i looked almost every day for weeks hoping to see the last video with the car running after all those months of hard work.

Thank you Dustin, I appreciate that! I agree and it does feel like lots of the stuff I cover in the videos is second nature, but based on the messages and comments that I often get, to many folks it's the first time they're seeing it. Plus, I don't intend for the videos to be "here's how to do this stuff" but more of a video build diary of my process to reach a goal.

Regarding the ice cube trays, I learned lots of little tidbits like this from the old mechanics I grew up around. I recall seeing them use the ice cube trays at least 30 years ago. I'm getting old.

Thank you Dan! It sounds like we have the same car, haha! Yeah, I hoped it would just kinda sorta "heal" itself, but on the bright side, it gave me an excuse to slap those cams in! I hope you're enjoying daily driving yours, I always love when I can drive mine.

Hi Joshua, I was honestly futzing with the waste gate setup right up until I made this video. Thank you for the suggestion and idea, I considered a simple air pump of some sort and figured there was something out there that I could use, but have been so short on time lately, this was just a fast solution for me. I will likely take another shot at this, as I love the fast opening response of the waste gate vs. the slower electric cutout.
