Hi All!

Here's the latest episode, where we get rid of the tiny stock intercooler in favor of something a bit more capable. Thanks for checking it out!

Tom - The preciseness of that install was great. Interested to see the exhaust.
Boost activated cutout???

BTW, I love that your videos are 10-20 minutes. You may laugh at this, but I literally make time in my day as well as a good meal/snack and a beer just to sit down and watch the video.

Thank you so much for all of the kind words gentlemen! I'll admit that I'm behind on replying to everyone, so my apologies for that. That said, here's the latest update on the Galant, I hope you enjoy it!

Your moving quick as hell on this project

I'm trying man! It's been slow going lately though, ugh.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner :p

Haha!

Glad you found one in good shape I remember those things at the dealership I worked for a few came around.

Me too! It's not perfect, but is a nice, rust free and well cared for example.

Thank you for saying that Ricky and I'm glad that you enjoy them! Weirdly enough, it seems that no matter how much raw footage that I start with (2 hours, 4 hours, etc) the videos always seem to end up being the same duration.

Tom,
Awesome progress! Just for a comparison, can you tell if there's a front mount on mine?

Thank you sir! I sure can't tell! :hellyeah:

Yes I can tell. Great video Tom!

Thank you Rich!

Tom when it finally is time for a driving video can you give us plenty of footage? We've been waiting so patiently! I especially liked the Sunday drive Talon Video and the acceleration vid when you had the hta68 in it, if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks!

Great work bro! We are both doing about the same things to our gvr4's!! Yours is super clean compared to mine LOL! Its cool to see the car come together and all the detail you put into it! Are you doing a 4bolt swap? Keeping abs and aws? I've got my rear end just trying to decide what to keep and what to ditch LOL! :)

Thanks a ton Dsmkauai! Due to my modest power goals, I'm keeping the stock 3 bolt setup for now. I really hope to swat away the "100 more horsepower bug" and keep everything simple and easy. We'll see how that goes. :sneaky:

Good luck to you and enjoy your VR-4. Got some pics I can check out?

I started a profile on my gvr4 but not much done or added yet. I have a ton of parts to put on it and should be doing so in the next few weeks I hope! Ill definetly have pics, trying to make the July races with it, if I can get the work done in time! I just had another round of prp therapy done to both wrist so they are really sore still from that. Hoping to have a good recovery and maybe be able to stand wrenching again! :)

Thank you for the support and kind words gentlemen! Here's the latest video where we slap in a somewhat hidden methanol injection system.

Good vid bro!! I got my car in the garage Friday and starter in on it LOL. Got the front end torn apart and getting it ready for mods and brakes! Got a lot of work ahead if I can manage it! :) here's a few pics of what I've done so far! You can check out the build here! I scored a meth kit for my gvr4 from 99gstracer!! I'll be installing that when it gets here! Also scored a c.o.p. setup of the galant forum :) http://www.dsmtuners.com/dsm-profiles/dsmkauais-91-gvr4-1633.11328/
