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:

Not a big surprise. I remember when the PO made the 1,000 hp thread that certainly didn't inspire hope... click

Glad it's back in good hands, though. I hope your son gets it back into respectable condition.

So true. I told him to dial it down on the forum. We already knew the stroker motor he bought dyno'd 597 AWHP at the wheels, which would be way too much for the stock galant tranny. But he gave up on the car after the 2014 shootout. Now she is limping, but she will get cleaned up and back on the road.

Kid was asking $1500, this is after paying out $9700 for motor work and such between Nov '15 and Feb '16. Got him down to 1100. I offered the original seller 3500 before he sold it to this kid for 3400. He said I as low-balling him. He said he would rather send it to the crusher (take a 7k loss) than sell it for 3500, lol. He no longer talks to me or his uncle.

the most recent galant i saved, 1415/2000, was sold to the kid i got it from for 6-7k, then he blew the head gasket and dropped another 1k on it. tried to sell it for 3500 not running, me and my friends offered him 1600$ so we could split the car up between us. he told us it was an insult, called us cheap and kept the car. fast forward to 2 months ago and he posts the car again for 1800$ obo. i offered him my snowmobile that was worth 600$ and he excepted it. needless to say the car is mine and my buddy helped me out a bit with the car as i have no place to work on cars and about 200$ and a few hours of his time and the car runs again.

Sad to see the car in such sad shape compared to when Josh sold it. What a damn shame.

Is there a lot of structural damage, or is it mainly just messed up body panels?

Just body panels. The rockers are starting to give way to some rust, but we will hit it with some rust killer and cover them in POR 15. When moving it to the driveway last night, 1st gear is definitely gon. Put it in first, let out the clutch and lots of nice grinding ensues.

This car also has my old SRS exhaust on it (from a Talon I had), I will be happy to get it back, nice and deep. Here is my new motor idling with it, love the deep sound. Should be better when I get the motor out and degree the cams.

Drained the coolant - Hello undiluted antifreeze
Drained the oil - Hello "almost: 2-stroke gas, wow this thing was rich running (can you say 1450's on 680's tune?)
Drained the transmission - The most beautiful charcoal gray pearl you have ever seen!!! Yup, first gear is ground away.

Pulled all plugs and hoses. Just need to pull the axles and yank this drivetrain out so I can go through the motor while my son drops his drivetrain in it.

We got the drivetrain swapped out. Found that Silicone Intakes is out of stock for the one coupler we need for the FMIC, so that combined with not wanting to cut the new front crash bar to make it fit today, we hot piped it. Since it will be running on WG for the winter, it should be fine. We repaired the broken brake line and got the new bumper installed. All she needs now is all her juices and some air in the tires and it will be ready for driving. Also broke out the zip-ties and got the partially ripped off fender somewhat in place.

Siliconintakes is my go to supplier! Sorry to hear they're out of stock on your piping otherwise things seem to be moving along quite nicely. Wish you luck with the project Thomas.

Spent some time this last week chasing down coolant leaks. Found the upper Scirocco radiator hose tube was crushed and cracked. Ordered a new radiator (well, my son that owns the car did), but he ordered a CU98 model instead of the CU837. The difference is the CU98 is about 6" wider. So, it fits, but not as flush because of the headlight area supports. But, it does give more coolant and surface area for cooling.

We also got the GM-MAF installed in a blow-thru configuration now (was in a pull configuration). Now he shouldn,t see the rich readings between shifts when the BOV is venting.
