    Davezj replied to a thread galant to vr4 conversion in UK Chat
    Hi there Ibraheem, the under body is completely differet from VR4 to none VR4. you will have to cut the entire center section of the floor and fire wall out and fabricate the tunnel. you will also have to replace the petrol tank as it straddles the propshaft replace the entire rear ond of the car, subframe, etc. there is a lot more to it than just this, being quick with my response. personally i would not bother with the four wheel drive, and just create a VR2, this has been done before and...

    hi i would like to convert my ulez exempt 2003 galant v6 manual to either a vr4 twin turbo conversion or evo engine conversion both need to be 4wd though. which would be cheaper to do? . i also have a 1997 legnum vr4 auto an 1999 galant vr4 auto (both are not ulez exempt and rotten body's so good as doner parts cars) ready for the conversion from my understanding apparently the non vr4 galants have a slightly different underbody for the diff/prop shaft i would like any advice if possible...

    My initial thought was that it swapped between the two HI/LO Fuel/Ignition tables - I could have sworn that they had slightly different values in them, but looking back now, they seem to be duplicates of each other. Any insight you can provide will be great!

    Nah I haven't as mines a manual. Looking through the Magna workshop manual, there mention of "Engine-A/T ECU requesting torque reduction", the troubleshooting guide implies its a simple pull-to-ground digital input that the TCU controls. Haven't looked at how the ECU actually reduces torque, but there is a table that appears to modify timing. Might be related? Might have to rabbit hole and get back to you.

    That's really interesting, thanks BCX! Don't suppose you've decoded the signal from the Gearbox ECU into B16? :D

    some more info I posted on OZVR4 attempting to reverse engineering the hardware of the ECU. https://www.ozvr4.com/threads/ecu-pin-out-complete-for-vr4.6395/page-2

    C3 is not digital output, it's a serial output. Baud is 15625. Outputs 4-5 parameters (rpm, load, accel enrich, etc) with a rudimentary checksum for TCL system to get this info from the ECU. C9 is the RX pin on the same serial interface. Tied to ground as it's not used in VR4. C6 - typo. This isn't L-line. Mitsubishi use K-line only, no L-line as per iso9141-2.

    Hi, In need of a rear turbo either complete or just housing. Not worried about condition of shaft or blades as I have new cores but my housing is damaged. Needed ASAP. Thanks

    All of those are 15-20 year old technology. Back then, it was the best you could get. Nowadays, the options are so much better - there's a reason there's a few of those old things up for sale - people trying to make a quick buck selling them to an unsuspecting buyer, because they've upgraded to something that is so much better! The ECU, especially when you've changed an engine massively, like throwing a big single turbo on it, is critical to healthy running of the engine. Having tried to...

    Thanks Dave, I have just looked up the EMU ECU and it's the same price range Thu now as you suspected. I guess all the ones I have been looking at so far are "old hat" now hence them being cheaper. So far I've been tempted by : Apexi FC -but seems a mission to connect a laptop. Haltech - but was too old (Windows 98!) AEM V1 - Missed the auction by being too tentative Autronic SM4 - Used by Richard Batty , still an option ?? VEMS V3 - Not sure it has the capabilities.

    did someone else doing doing FTO 6A13TT swap use a different cheaper after market option ecu. i don't think it had all the support that link ecu have but i think it was fully featured. i will go find the thread.

    Great, Thanks Garry that's what I wanted to hear. I've found a Galant engine wiring loom for sale for £150. I was wondering wether with slight mods I could use the FTO loom as the engines are both the same platform ? Just minus 500cc and two turbos.

    The Evo 4-8 are plug compatible, but not pin compatible. You still need to move pins around, it's not plug and play. There isn't a base map provided by Link for the 6A13TT, however I am happy to help get you up and running with mine as a basis (although mine is modified reasonably, so again can't drop it in and expect it to go). If you've got a basic understanding of engines, fuel, ignition etc, then the Help provided within the PCLink software is excellent, and is really in depth at...

    Hi Garry, thanks for your quick response. I'm supprised to hear the VR4 and Evo 4-8 are plug compatible so that's a bonus as opposed to cutting the loom up. I will keep a look out for a Link ECU at the right money from now, I have been looking at the Apexi Power FC units but I don't like the idea of tuning via the commander. I will be trying to teach myself to map the ECU so are the Link ECU's easy for a newbie to tuning ? Do you get any base maps to get the car running initially ? Thanks...

    Hi Stuart, There's no aftermarket ECU that fits off the shelf. An Evo 4-8 style ECU is plug compatible, but the VR-4 needs extra ignition outputs. I have a Link ECU G4+ Xtreme in my Anglia, which is running a 6A13TT engine, and it has been an abolute dream to get set up and running. Yes - it's a modern ECU and isn't the cheapest, however, I truly believe that you will spend less money overall by buying a decent ECU now, rather than trying to cobble together something with an ECU...

    Hello All, I'm hoping your experience will point me in the right direction : During lockdown I'm managing to move my project forward and i'm on the look out for a Standalone ecu. So I've squeezed a VR4 lump into my track FTO and I'm running a single turbo. I am trying to find a standalone ecu for the project but I'm on a budget, I'm not overly concerned About buying the newest/latest tech I just want something capable. I have pretty much dismissed anything that comes from a 4 pot...
