If you had the Galant VR4 tcase and a transmission that would bolt up to the V6, someone who stated cutting and welding would need to be done would have to eat his shorts. Then again, the GVR4 tcase is not very strong and has basically no diff upgrade options and the diff is an open style. The modifications to the subframe to allow an EVO tcase leads to a much more durable unit that can be equipped with LSDs.
They are swapping evo7 and 8 diff's into the gvr4's, just fyi. Here's a quote from a post on clubvr-4...
The EVO 8 rear diff, or one from an EVO 7 onwards, will bolt straight in.
Remove your VR4 rear diff as follows.
Pull out the rear drive shafts from the diff (I am sure this is covered elsewhere on the forum) and remove the AYC pipes, let the ayc fluid drain out.
The brackets at the front on either side 3 bolts 17mm on each, and 4 big bolts 22mm. Also 4 12mm bolts which hold the propshaft to the flange on the diff.
that’s it take out the DIFF
The only thing I had to change was the propshaft flange as the Evo one was thicker and would not have fitted so well, so remove the VR4 diff prop flange and remove the EVO8 prop flange and swap them over, this is one big bolt in the middle.
Then fit the EVO 8 diff.
i would say a lot has changed since i started this thread lol
The Mivec swap was done and engine built, than i drove it acrossed the US. so currently at the Fab shop getting the turbo "KIT" done. full custom manifold to a twin scroll set up.
After finally getting almost all my power back my GT now seems like it is flooded when starting, bellows white smoke or vapor from the exhaust, and is even spitting what I believe to be has out of the exhaust.
My code reader says that fuel system 1 is open. Can someone help me here? I’m going...
As the title states i am here to talk to you all about the GT FWD to AWD swap. Now i am no expert on all things AWD or the 3G but i feel i have room to discuss what i have done and what i have used. so here is the list of parts that i have used and i will go in further detail below that.
