Hello guys, I would like to introduce myself,
My name is Kevin, and I have been around the forum for a few months now. I'm currently in college and turning 21 next year (woohoo!). I came to the country when I was 5 years old, and when I came here my dad already had (and still has) a 1991 Mitsubishi Galant GSR. I always admired that car but my dad said there was a better version of it called the GVR-4, so through a little searching around I winded up on the forum and began looking for one to buy myself. Eventually I was linked with NB 733/2000 (thank you again citymunky), and this car is amazing. Has a few tasty mods and overall great condition inside and out. However it still needed a few more touches before it could become ready for the road. With the help of other members of the forum and my dad (he is an auto mechanic), I was finally able to get it up and running smoothly (and the check engine light as of today no longer turns on). A few things I wished some advice upon are: wheels, window tinting, and gauges. I'm open to suggestions and recommendation, thanks everyone.

Keep the Stock rims if you keep the car 4 Lug. I was planning on painting them black to match the car. Used them as back up set of rims or for the winter.

If you can find a set of Lancer OZ rims, they are super lightweight and they don't look that bad.

If you go 5 Lug, I would suggest finding a set of EVO rims. The key in NYC is to stay with OEM quality rims or forged rims($$$$$$). Any other cheaper rims (cast rims) will crack with the potholes all over NYC. (I know since I'm from the BX).

For tint, keep it legal or close to legal limits. I don't like dealing with the NYPD, just that is just me.

Gauges. You need a Wideband like a LC-1 or AEM if you plan on doing any tuning. Most people also get a boost gauge and oil pressure.

Will do, thank you but for the wheels although the oz rally are nice and I do want to keep 4 lug, I'm looking for a size 17 set, any suggestions?

So this came up today:




I'm going to begin looking into it, but wanted to know if any other members have seen this same code before and how they dealt with it, another problem I'm having right now is when I attempt to start the car cold (like overnight), I have to slightly press on gas a few times to actually get it going

Should be the coolant temp sensor failing on you. Sort of a common problem ...

Thanks, but that explains the starting problem too? or just the DTC

It can definitely cause a starting problem. With link connected and the key on, look at the coolant temp. Does it say -71-74 degrees or 313? Either the sensor could be bad or the wiring to it is disconnected or bad (very common). the -71-74 temp reading makes the ECU start dumping fuel to help the car start in Antarctica. This will make it very hard to start.

Quoting kevintoscano:

The sensor was indeed malfunctioning, got a new one installed and everything is good on that end. However I am now facing a fairly strong amount of blueish smoke around startup, smells horrible and strong but goes away in a short while, I suspect something wrong inside the head or perhaps the injectors???

That sounds like leaking valve stem seals

Swapped this trim piece from the GSR (Ignore the dusty floor mat )



Testing the new bumper. The intercooler setup needs to be pushed back about an inch in order to get a good fit... this summer is looking busy already.
