I owned a very nice VRG for 3 years. Even though the prices the seem attractive, I would suggest you look at another vehicle. These Galants are old and parts are becoming ever more difficult to find. I called all over the country looking for Japanese cradles when mine needed replacing (front and rear double wishbone suspension) but had to settle for Korean-made which didn't last long.

If you aren't lucky like I was to get one with a good working GDI engine, the conversion to 6A13 is a hefty cost considering the value of the vehicle and it's a gas guzzler. 4G63 is even more expensive. The local model has a reliable N/A 4G63 but it's also guzzler and replacement parts are also difficult to find if your car is down and you need the parts quickly.

I was very lucky to not have any issues with my high pressure fuel pump but I wouldn't touch another Mitsubishi GDI engine of that era with a 10 feet pole.

This was my car. Feeling all the feels now :cry:

It's in the rear of the engine bay neear to the injector brain .....if u did a conversion it will be part of the new harness....and the power wire to the relay won't have any current so ...u will need to just add current
..and you should be running

Wow, I saw your prior Galant for sale and was really considering it, thanks for sharing that feedback. It seemed like a good candidate for a VR conversion later on too.

I just really like these cars and always wanted one compared to these newer cars. I was even considering buying parts from the US as I know they sold there too.

So correct me if wrong, what you're really saying is don't buy as a daily driver unless you can source a donor chassis for spares?

If you used the correct parts and everything was installed correctly then the only other issues would be a wiring problem, a coolant leak that has gone unnoticed or an issue with the computer itself
