    GVR-4 VR4 Galant Tranmission ID

    That is a little strange, but maybe not worth the effort trying to figure out the history of it all. The transmission for that VIN was originally a W5M33-2-NQBK. It would use the same transfer case as the W5M33-2-NQBM that you have pictured. I would assume that this was a replacement unit but...

    Cool Shelf Find

    Terrible picture, but MMNA had one in the display case at the plant in Normal, IL. This was taken at the last M.O.D. event in 2015.Never even thought about trying to get it from them since they basically cleared house of everything else that year. Coulda, woulda, shoulda...

    After 22 years, I finally sold my DSM

    The saying used to be that, "You'll be back. They always come back."Twenty-two years is a good amount of time in the game. Hopefully you don't regret getting rid of it!

    1G FWD vs AWD Clutch Pedal Assembly Differences

    It's a turbo vs. non-turbo difference in the pedal assemblies, not a FWD vs. AWD. I ran into the same discrepancy when swapping my '90 N/A to turbo way back when.

    Looking for Cad files / stl files

    I've got a file for a 1G intake manifold flange. Only thing I wasn't able to really verify was the radius in the corners of the ports, but they are pretty close by visual comparison after using what I had to arrive at this. Radius gauges would have been nice...I had planned to use the 2D...

    2G Spyder starter wont engage the flywheel

    I've got nothing more to offer other than that would be the correct flywheel PN to match up with your FWD turbo transmission. Hopefully some others with experience using that flywheel will chime in.

    2G Spyder starter wont engage the flywheel

    As @pauleyman mentioned, GSX and GS Spyder (N/T) axles are both 25-spline at the diff. The GST and GST Spyder axles are 27-spline at the diff.what is the axle spline count on a 97 gst? 95-99 2G GS-T Axle Spline Count?

    2G Spyder starter wont engage the flywheel

    KF5M332SPZT is a 2G FWD Turbo transmission. It was used in both the GST and GST Spyder. If that's the transmission you have, just look for a 7-bolt, FWD turbo flywheel.It will be a different flywheel than what your 2.4L Spyder GS came with and is likely what you keep running into.

    1G Timing questions.

    Opening up the head bolt holes should be all that's needed to install a head from a 7-bolt engine on a 6-bolt block.You say you have a '93 - that should have been a 7-bolt to start with?Nothing changes for the timing procedure when you change the head. Follow the proper procedure for the...

    2G Spyder starter wont engage the flywheel

    That's a FWD turbo transmission. So the reason it wasn't engaging is because the AWD flywheel is a smaller diameter than the FWD. Hence the different number of teeth.Get a turbo FWD flywheel and you'll be good to go. Still never told us why you couldn't have reused the original, but at...

    2G Spyder starter wont engage the flywheel

    Why can't you use the flywheel that came with your car?The AWD flywheel has 106 teeth. The FWD has 110 teeth. If you were trying to use the AWD flywheel with a FWD transmission, it would not engage. If it is truly an AWD transmission, there's something else strange going on.

    Aftermarket oil cooler setup

    Only looking into it a little bit, it sounds like something like that might work. The only thing I can say with certainty is that you're introducing more possible leak points going this route rather than simply using a housing built for an external air cooler.

    Oh, I don't disagree. Personally.But it beats swapping over a whole engine harness. ;)Some people aren't comfortable doing wiring, so just letting people know that there is an option out there that is plug and play.I was able to get a new 1990 CAS from RockAuto for my car a couple years...

    Aftermarket oil cooler setup

    Damn, Marty! You run oil lines all the way over to the passenger side of the car (original SMIC location) just for a cooler? OMGFor a 7-bolt, you would need an Evo III or Evo 8 or 9 oil filter housing.

    2004 subaru outback

    I'm a fan, also, so I share the same mindset that most are worth saving. But I also haven't dove real deep into them.Lately, LKQ and Pull-a-Part have both had 5+ Subaru varieties in their yards and, from what I've seen, the Outbacks generally go untouched other than the interiors.
