Year Make Model: 1999 Galant 0MGWTF VR4 ~ 8g
Description: Hello, my name is Shane.
I bought my Galant in April 2007.

.:: Engine Specifications ::.
8th generation Galant VR-4 (EC5A/EC5W)
Production 1996–2002
Assembly Nagoya plant, Okazaki, Aichi
Class Mid-size car
Body style(s) 4-door sedan
Layout Front engine, 4WD
Engine(s) 2498 cc DOHC 24v V6, twin-turbo
Transmission(s) Four-wheel drive,
5-speed semi-auto

The final VR-4 was introduced in 1996. The engine capacity was enlarged substantially to 2.5 L, which pushed the power up by 15 percent to the Japanese voluntary limit of 280 PS. The car was now capable of over 150 mph when derestricted, and could accelerate from 0-60 in about six seconds.

The Type-V model could be specified with either the existing 5-speed manual or the optional INVECS-II, which was now an advanced self-learning 5-speed semi-auto based on Porsche's Tiptronic transmission, while the Type-S model offered the optional Active Yaw Control (AYC). This complex rear diff was first seen on the Lancer Evo IV, and used an array of sensors to detect and quell oversteer, giving the ultimate VR-4 great agility for a vehicle of its size and weight.

With the 8th generation of the Galant, Mitsubishi introduced a station wagon (known in many markets as the Legnum) to replace the
old 5-door hatchback, and the VR-4 was now available in both body styles.

North America and Europe were again denied this model, but the burgeoning grey import trade meant that it developed a cult following in several overseas territories, especially the United Kingdom and New Zealand. In 2000 MMC's motorsport partner Ralliart was contracted to type-approve Galants and Lancers for UK sales, and 200 VR-4s were officially imported before production finally ceased two years later.
