Hey all, I saved another one yesterday. It is 100/2000 Nile Black. The nephew of a friend bought this off Joshua Mead (AlphaMale) in 2013. It came with a JDM replacement motor installed. We pulled it and installed a motor that made 597 AWHP and a PTE 6262 in it. The guy put about 1000 miles on it and parked it. He tried selling it here but his posts got deleted (he was a tool). After putting over 7000 into it, he sold it for 3400 to what looks like to be an idiot.
The new owner drove it for about 300 miles and the hub on the drivers side separated and the wheel came off, pulling the bottom of the fender with it. The shop he took it to told him he needed a motor too, lots of leaks and the car had 200k miles on it so he put 9000 into parts and labor for a new motor. Mind you, the motor that was in it had about 300 miles on it total, Eagle crank, Mahle pistons, Eagle rods. That shop "Schmidt Racing in Indianapolis" ripped him off. Then the MafT cable fell and wrapped around the passenger axle, so it took it to the Mitsubishi dealer and had them install a new MafT. Only window that works now is Drivers window. Then he said the transmission lost 1st gear and a rear brake line rusted through. He then bought (Mom and Dad bought) him a 2006 Legacy GT, so he parked the Galant for sale. I bought it ($1100 I might add) for the motor/turbo and seats. Shell goes to son 2/5. It has some rust under the lip of the trunk/boot, needs a drivers fender now, but it looks nice except a dent in the roog by drivers door. Someone sat on it, bondo cracked, so the rook was at least skimmed at one point before a repaint.
Motor now has Ported/polished head, 272 cams w adj cam gears, 8.3:1 Ross Pistons, Eagle Rods and Eagle knife-edged crank, ARPS, FIC 1450's, brand new CAS, new factory TB kit, new front case, PTE 6262 w/Tial 38mm WG.
Plans are as follows:
I am taking the motor to go through it (oil is a bit gassy smelling) and degree the cams. Installing it in my Galant.
I am taking the Tial WG, not sure if selling or keeping
I am swapping the front seats with my seats, they are less worn
I a taking the working Fogs that are in the spare bumper
Son 3/5 is buying the turbo/manifold and my motor off me for his Galant, giving me his 1g rod/2g piston motor in partial payment
Son 2/5 gets Galant shell so he can install his drive-train from his Talon in it and drive it.
This gives us 1025/2000, 543/2000 and 10/2000
This is the only current pic I have right now, will get more later today.
These are as it was when it was sold:
