Hi. My name is Wolfgang!!

I'm new here and i live in Sweden

I will soon bye a Galant VR4 91 year model with the steering wheel on the left side.. i heard that it is pretty unusual with the steering wheel on the left side but i don't know so much about the GVR4 so much so i hope that it is okej that i might ask some stupid questions later hehe

The car did just run 120.000 km and i don't think that it is so much.. or is it for a GVR4 91???

Welcome! My steering wheel is on the left side, too.




I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

Welcome. From the looks of the color on the radiator, you may want to invest in one soon.

Congratulations! Your car looks very nice. I noticed it has cruise control, but no ABS brakes. Also, do you know what that black box on top of the intake pipe, near the throttle body does?

hehe i noticed that it was some time ago since i wrote here last time!!

To answer an old question here, no i don't have a lambda sensor on my VR-4, i have discovered that there isn't any major differences between the US VR-4 and my VR-4 that is from an arabia country!!

So far i have discovered that the only differences is that my VR-4 don't have ABS brakes and that i don't have a lambda sensor and that i have those tiny little chrome side marks!! My VR-4 don't have leather interior as the US version have.. this is what i have discovered so far!! The engine is the same as the US VR-4 which those blue 450cc injectors and the TD05H 14b turbo!!

Now i have some questions witch i hope that some of you guys and girls can help me with On our gearboxes there is an identification number under the thermostat House, What number does the US VR-4 have on the gearbox?? is it different numbers or doe they all have the same numbers?? It's the numbers AFTER W5M33 what i mean!! Thanks for all the help that you can give me!!

No one that can share some numbers from the gearbox??

The reason why i wonder about this is because i was informed that some previous owner of this car has changed the gearbox from the original to one NEW Mitsubishi's Rally gearbox and that he had to change something (Don't know the word in English) i the rear axle to make everything work properly..

If you post the model code (0n the vin tag under model) I can look it up for you. All had W5M33 boxes.

E39ASNPFR1D (as above June 1991 on)

For model code

E39 = 1997cc Petrol,4wd, 4ws.
A = Passenger car
S = Sedan
N = Manual
P = VR4 Only (may 1990 on)
F = Intercooler
L = Left hand drive, R = Right hand drive
1D = Hong Kong, W = GCC, 8 = Australia, ( ) = Genral except HK and Oz.

The stock US gvr4 trans numbers are:
W5M33-2-NQBK 1991-92 to 4/92 VR4/ZR4 Galant
W5M33-2-NQBM 1992 Galant to 5/92

Ratios:
1st 2.846
2nd 1.684
3rd 1.115
4th 0.833
5th 0.666
Rev 3.166
T. Case 1.090

Final trans ratio is 4.933

Your previous owner probably changed the gears in the rear to match the ratio in your replacement transmission. What is the number on your trans?
