I've owned this car for 3+ years now and have been dealing with the neglect from past owners without really fixing anything. The car has sat in my shop for the past year, mostly untouched as I traded off my street bike for a 98 Trans am to daily. I finally decided to sell the trans am and put my race 1g and the galant back on the front burner. She's got 190k on her, and the owner before the guy I bought it from rallyx'd the car (hence the rally armours) and definitely put this old girl through her tests. It's had a stock exhaust with it's fair share of swiss cheese looking rotted holes in it since I bought it and it's annoyed the living hell out of me since. The stock radiator was slowly starting to die off and seep at the crimps, the suspension was original and after a few seasons of rallyx and 160k+ it was well past due for replacement. So I took the money I got from the trans am and started modding an, otherwise stock, 736/2000. I've since installed a mishimoto X-line from a 1g, modified the stock brackets and crammed a factory 1g fan in. The waterpump, t-stat, and every single hose that has coolant through it was replaced at the same time. Timing belt was replaced along with rebuilding the oil pump, and valve seals were replaced with Viton GSC's as they've been leaking since at least 140k (that I found out from a previous owners post on here). Of course the 14b was never good enough for this heavy ass pig, so an MHI B16g was fitted and I mutilated my old school buschur turbo back from my 1g to rid the nasty raspy stock exhaust. With the new found airflow I needed a way to safely turn up the wick, so I built an evo 8 ecu patch harness, threw in some 1200cc PTE's and a wally 255. Of course power is useless without being able to put it down, so I picked up a set of evo 9 bilsteins and some swift spec R springs to keep the car planted, and powerstop Z26 pads with centric rotors all around to stop. I'll be upgrading the wheels/tires as Arizona begins it's HPDE and autox season in a month.

Took a few random pictures from these past couple weekends at my shop as I finished up most of the maintenance/mods.












736/2000- FP Red, buschur turbo back, Evo 8 ecu, FIC2150, modified 1g Mishimoto X-line, evo 9 JIC coilovers, Powerstop Z26 brakes, and a trunk full of groceries.

Back from the dead! I've been trying to get in the habit of updating build threads. This one's long over due, but I'll try and post some highlights since the car has changed quite a bit over the years.

Started off with wanting some hood vents. I ordered a set of evo 3 replicas, installed them, but wasn't really satisfied with how they looked. They were about a half inch too tall compared to factory evo 3's. They did help quite a bit with engine bay heat and just overall cooling system performance though. I picked up a junkyard hood to cut up, my factory hood had some goofy dings in it and wasn't really cost effective for fixing.

Next I wanted to update the lighting. My 93 crystals worked, but they didn't work that great. The HID's were pretty blinding, so I picked up a set of J30 infinity projectors from the yard and started cutting up the housings to put these in. I wanted to try my hand at a set of demon eyes so I stuck a red LED in each projector. It was a cool project, but I don't ever turn them on anymore. I only ever turn them on to show people what they look like. The lights themselves work great now though! You can see my super tall repo evo 3 vents here.

Shortly after this my 2010 date code tires developed a nice bubble from the tire separating. I wasn't planning to 5 lug swap that weekend, but I had everything to do it and just knocked it all out. I've had this set of 5Zigens in the garage for a few years and finally was able to install them

Had a lifter fail, they've always ticked cold but this one finally collapsed. Post 3g lifter install, it's still nice and quiet after doing these.

Had enough of the repo vents, found a guy on the evo 3 forums from the UK willing to ship me a full set of evo 3 factory vents. I paid $80 shipped for these and they made it in like 3 days from the UK. I was pretty impressed and they fit a whole lot nicer. I was talked into adding the 3 vent for the intake, I've killed 3 MAF's from this damn vent and finally got smart and put a water guard over the filter

736/2000 by Tyeler Andersen, on Flickr

Now it was time for mods. The 16g was fun, but at nearly 200k miles it was time to make some power. A local kid bought my 16g setup and I picked up an FP red, fp manifold, and a tial external setup. Also grabbed a set of 2150FIC's and an ETS 1g street core. I have A/C still in the car and wanted to make sure things stayed cooled so a 1g mishimoto X-line radiator went in. Shifted the radiator mounts and made some custom piping to use the back door exit 1g intercooler. It's one hell of a tight fit but it does work great.

Getting caught back up. The car's been in storage the past 2 years as I have no more room at my house for cars. We had a pool built over the winter and put an RV gate in on the side of our house which meant I could store a car on the side of the house. Back home the galant finally came! Which also means I can start installing some of the mods I've been holding onto for it and finally get this thing cranked back up. I blew the stock clutch disc up shortly after enabling launch control on the evo ecu, so I stuck a quartermaster twin disc in the car along with a jacks stage 2 trans and tcase, but aside from that I hadn't done much on the car post FP red install. I picked up a JDM RS front bumper for the car and got around to installing that last weekend. The plan is to grab 2 good shape fenders from the yard as I'm scared to pull my side skirts off the car and see what mine look like and then send the car to a buddy for a full repaint so I can finally have a fully color matched car after nearly 6 years of rocking the silver hood and now black bumper

Love the update! Love the car. Love that you've kept it for so long. Love the parts you're using (I might steal that catch can location). And love that driveway shot. I had that exact same 1G back in the day and I still think it's the best body style and color.

Thanks!

I've had this evo ecu in the car for quite a few years and finally had a chance to play with the NLTS settings which have never worked. So much nicer to shift since I've been accustomed to the NLTS in my evo. Also turned on the launch maps which seem to be working great now

Everyone always wants to go for a ride in the evo or the vette, but the montero is the sleeper monster in my fleet nothing like pulling on a new camaro or mustang in a lifted brick on 33s.

I'm a 4g and LS guy, the red e30 is an LS1/t56 car also. I started building it before I swapped the montero. I love the 4g but the torque of an LS makes for a wonderful daily.

Here's a not up to date build thread on the montero. I haven't had time to update it recently. Trucks only on 12lbs of boost right now but once summer is over it's going on the dyno and turning it up proper.

Good god that thing looks fun.

I just read through your progress, nice work. Making me want to keep my 01 Trooper and LS swap it or try to find a 1st gen Montero. 3rd gens are pretty nice lookin also. Always had a soft spot for them.

Everyone always mistakes this for a trooper My neighbor bought a trooper after going for a ride in mine thinking they were the same thing too lol.

One of the montero guys has an LS in his gen 3 montero and is putting an M122 blower on it, looked like an easy swap in there as well but he's not done yet.
