    I haven't seen anything on this car in awhile. You have really done quite a bit to it, I like the work you have put into it. The wide body came out great, not very often you see people do a full metal wide body. And the evo engine conversion looks awesome. Good work on everything.

    I am sitting here shaking my head thinking of all the things you have done on your vehicle... I can barely complete a head gasket job in the span of 1 year and I have so many more plans. And you swap engines like I change my oil, every 5000 miles.

    Keep up the great fab work! It is these build threads that give me the punch in the arm I need when I think I have more important things to do then to wrench on my car.

    would you recommend the supercharger setup for anyone? pro and cons would be nice from someone who did it. and same with the ITBs, how did you like them? which setup did you like the most?

    Sorry guys, ended up building other peoples projects somehow....


    EVO1-3 Rear LSD should fit, have a look in the Malaysian markets from the Proton Wira AWD's (Hatch and sedan of an evo 1-3) plenty around over there. (if it doesnt fit, i'd probably just make it fit ahaha)

    Front LSD i'm not to sure, the one I have was a fluke buy and only some lathe work was needed..


    Cheers bro!


    heheh cheers bro! i'll be honest to, I change parts on my cars more then i change pants for work ROFL


    there should be a pros and cons in the build threads, other wise you can PM me about it, might take a while to reply though. I have seem to have become the "project finisher" down here now... I get no time to finish my galant :notgood:



    Some progress:
    Pistons arrived finally! just waiting on the rods and we are set to go back in the car!
    IMAG2302.gif


    Reverting back to stock ported Evo3 exhaust manifold for now and TD05 20G 7CM rear. Just to prove that Mitsu parts are universal throughout the 4G6# range. (And it might stop roasting my bonnet)
    (16G is in the photo)

    Big inspiration for me jayrome. Hate to say it like this, but I'm copying some of your stuff haha. OK probably a lot of it. always been impressed by your fab skills and can-do attitude. When I do post, I find myself linking to your threads more often than not.

    Keep it up! We all get busy man, just gotta get back to it.:thumb:
