hmm thanks TRQ-STR


@TheChosen1-you obviously dont like one model of a car which means more than a car to you. Also you cant compare old rusty car with one with 0 rust, and damaged, well mostly just on outside
week ago i was driving it 230kmh and the car goes straight, thats enaugh for me that my car is flat.

Modern VR4, in my country there is NONE, its a little better car, outside is very good, but interior i dont like. But still if I have a VR4, i would make mine Galant like this.
Iam not looking for faster and lighter car, iam looking FOR mine model to be faster, better handling etc. This car was in family since 1997. Iam building it for the last five years
All work except mapping and painting i have done my self, and still only in parts there is invested over 10000euros, thats over 15000 Australian dollars.
I could buy an EVO for that money. but still this old white fridge (thats how my friends and I call it :D) always puts a smile on my face when Iam driving it.


P.S.-@TheChosen1, dont know why you are thinking Slavic countrys are poor, there are some people that really are, but that is because they are lazy and dont want to work
there are lot of rich people here, and all is availible if you have money, just like in every country ;)

Here are the pics of the full respray, car was mostly flat AFTER 28 years, little here and there some dent etc.

colour is original ,Sarajevo Weis W18, but in clear coat it was added a bit of a crystal gold pearl, without sun or light you cant see it, it turned out very very good, and I was very satisfied with that.

preparing the car for painting

Beautiful job. I've got the same colour on my car, Sarajevo white, just without the gold. Looks great with the gold.

2.0 TURBO ECI
Time for new exhaust full 70mm exhaust, with electric cutout on the rear muffler ( for quieter and louder mode), and polished 80mm exit

Image

Image

So here is my design

two pipes through the rear muffler (bigger one(70mm on the electric cutout side, without holes on it), and smaller one (60mm, where gasses are going when cutout is closed(with holes in it, so the muffler can absorb sounds)
remember , the angle of those two pipes is very important, the bigger angle you got, the louder car will be when the cutout is opened

Image

Image

Image

Image



Next thing to do is to port a turbo housing, this needs to be done to prevent boost creep, here it is how it looks before and after around wastegate

Image

Image

Image

Image



Later i had problems with a hot air when boosting. As the car still isnt mapped, and its in brake in proceduree hot air is allready a problem, so it would be big problem during the mapping

So i got almost a brand new intercooler from EVO10

Image

And one video how electric cutout work(sounds)
this is without middle muffler, so basically when electric cutout is opened it simulates straight pipe

Intercooler fits perfectlly

it is 3times bigger than the old one

Image

Image

oil cooler was also relocatted

here how the intercooler looks after redoing the pipes, also a SPAL fan was added for better cooling

Image

Image

Electronic boost controller is installed also

Image


and i got a throttle body from an evo8, much better and faster TPS and ISC sensors

Next, i had to make adapter for ISC to the Eclipse/ early EVO installation

also i had boost leaks on throttle body, and on the outlet of a turbo, so a new flange has been made

Image

Rebuild kit for throtle body

Image

Image

Image


Next i got very lucky and found a brand new middle blend for redesign version complete with instructions and install hardware

Image

also i got a brand new right tail lamp

Image

Image

to me looks much better with it :)
