    Galant VR4 (EC5A + Z16A) Engine Swap Project

    Was finding and doing this project for 1.5 year already, mostly because it's hard to find the parts I need at my country. Sorry I can't provide the process of the swap project since I was thinking the project would have ended up in failure until 2 month ago it turned out to show a significant process which I decided to keep the project ongoing

    Objective :
    Installing 6G72TT from Mitsubishi GTO VR4 Facelift and 5-speed Getrag Gearbox from Mitsubishi GTO VR4 Prefacelift into Mitsubishi Galant 8G EA5A along with Full Black Leather Interior from Mitsubishi Galant VR4 and VRM such as MMCS Facelift, 260 km/h Tacho, Doorcards from COTY edition, Black Leather Electric Powered seats, etc to make it looks like stock car from outer appearance

    Project Completion :50%

    Pictures below, the car is still in mess especially interior part








    Video of the engine running below :

    Looking for (any1 can source it for a good price ?) :
    "ASPIRE" Badge from Mitsubishi Galant 8G Aspire Viento GDI (EC7A, EA7A) to replace "GALANT" Badge
    "EVOLUTION" Badge from Mitsubishi Evo X
    "X" Badge from Mitsubishi Evo X



    any harsh comment welcome

    Nice job !! As Ben said a lot of work there with the Gearbox being the "wrong" side etc.

    Have you got the transmission working OK as well?

    for a moment, the transmission is OK (already checked and tested from gear 1-5 and R) along with AWD, but I'll pass AYC and TCL parts

    focusing on interior wiring and parts while doing maintenance at engine bay side, will upload more video and photo for it if everything going well

    It's not as fast as you expect since the engine, awd system and full interior give lot of weight unlike yours

    What make me curious is what gearbox you use to match with 6A13TT and how you do it without AWD

    With better grip tyres, I bet yours gonna fly from 0-100 km/h under 5 s
