I'm so intrigued by these cars. How do the stock intercoolers work on these cars? Does this one have A/C or do you even plan to run A/C?

So jealous, man. What's the plan for it?

It actually has And old road race engineering intercooler setup on it and all.

Yes jt has ac. I plan on tryin to for sure. It’s all there. Nothing is missing under hood.
Still has cruise control and abs.
Abs I will delete. Thanks to @DSSA for getting me one of the last non abs prop valves.

My plan is to get inte
How did that end up in a junkyard?
It was at impound lot. Guess who ever owned never came back for it. And it sat this guys impound lot for from what I was told ten years.
Guy couldn’t find title for it. So he was going to junk shell. And just pull motor and trans sell it like that.
I have guy working on getting me title for it in the state of pa.
It takes about 3 months to get one but well worth it.

I can always put dealer tag on it drive it like that. The place i work at is car dealership.

Nice. That's awesome. Apparently the A/C stuff is unique for the VR4, so that's worth its weight in gold.


I want one for that exact same reason. 4 door, comfy interior, and can fit my wife and 4 year old in it. Plus the DSM goodness.

I hope All the a/c stuff is good. Stuff is hard enough to find for galant

Then I can still keep my GSX as my fun toy to drive around.
4doors are nice to have for sure.

Honestly, having my Edge changed my entire perspective on what a car could and should be. Four doors, fits the whole family, is comfortable but still "sporty" feeling, and has enough get up and go to get in front of people or get the hell outta dodge when I need to. I just don't want the obnoxiously loud, hard AF, no creature comforts, "one person only" cars I've had in the past. Maybe I'm an old man now, but idgaf. I want to be comfortable and fast. Lol.

I know exactly what you mean. I can relate 100 percent
My daily driver is buick rendezvous 4 door small suv. That everyone fits in with no issue and I can still tow trailer with it. Not sporty at all. But runs dam good for the old 3.4 v6

I'm so intrigued by these cars. How do the stock intercoolers work on these cars?

It's just a regular tiny intercooler but it's front mounted. Leaves the 14B and goes to the drivers side, forward through a cutout between the radiator and headlight, 90 into the intercooler, 90 down and under the passenger headlight to where a 1G intercooler is then the rest of the piping is similar to a 1G. But the stock MAF is in the "middle" of the engine bay with the battery right behind the passenger headlight so a little different.

Very nice find! Some nice slight mods and looks REALLY clean for the area.
 
thanks man.
What part of pa are you in. Be nice to have some more people around to hang with and talk Dsm and all with.
I'm in the Lehigh Valley area. I used to know a ton DSM guys around here 20 years ago. Most have moved on to other platforms, but there's still a few OGs around it see every now and then.

Small world. I live in Lehigh valley area also. I have couple buddy’s who still have Dsm but they are garage queens don’t see road to often.
Be nice to meet up sometime
 
I'm up near the Scranton area. We still have a handful of DSMs within 20 miles or so if myself.

There was a very nice Mitsubishi meet in the Pocono area late last year. Very good turnout, maybe 50 cars or so. Probably 10-15 DSMs too.

I remember chatting with you at that meet towards the end there. We were last group of guys to leave the place.
 
I removed my injectors the other day. To get them cleaned and checked. But when I got them out they were all bent up top a little. Like installed wrong at some point or whatever they were in before caused it. Now I don’t know what to do. I look for new injectors or some decent used ones to get cleaned up

Last night I made trip to @DSSA compound.
To pick me up complete steering column for the galant with key.
And got driver side lower dash panel for it also.
Man do’s Josh have some nice Mitsubishi laying around the shop.
Now on Sunday I’ll get this installed in the galant. And drive it 2 miles from my work to my house with dealer tag on it. So I can start working on it at night in my garage at home.

Got the car today to my house to start working on it.
Started taking seats out of car.
Passenger seat is rotted badly.
Had to heat all the bolts with my mini inductor. To get them to come free.
Rear back seat kept falling apart when I touched it.
Also got rear arms torn out today to install
New bushings and to add something special to them that got sent to me for rear trailing arms.
Just got source some ball joints for them still.
Surprisingly ever bolt underneath came out easily.

I can't believe the seats are rotted like that. I don't think I've ever seen anything like in my life. I guess that what happens when a car is shut up outside for years at a time.

If you can find one, there are a bunch of guys who swap EVO interiors into the Galant. I've never done it, but it seems pretty straight forward. Eventually that what my son wants to do with his.
