New Member: My Mitsubishi Galant VR-4

I have owned 3 Previous Galants, but this last one is the best.

For those who do not know about VR4s check out www.clubvr4.co.uk. This site is for Galant and Legnum enthusiasts.

My car is as follows;
2.5 litre V6 Twin-Turbo (with HKS induction) - est 300hp
Four-Wheel Drive, Active Yaw Control and Traction Control (From Lancer EVO V)
5 Speed INVECS-II Tiptronic Transmission (based on Porsche design)
17" Zauber Alloys and Toyo 225/45 R17 tyres

0-60mph @ 5.9sec and 150 mph Top Speed

While other cars may be faster in the 1/4 mile or top speed, it's road holding around corners is almost as good as the Nissan GTR "Godzilla", but it looks like an everyday car.

Nice car, lets put it to the Egg Nog test! Write your online name on a piece of paper and take a picture of it on the car. For example: you could stab the piece of paper over the shifter of tape it to the hood or something like that.

Yes well, it's a long story. It has something to do with a guy called moterer1, a skyline, some swizzbeatz , and an xkr, a z3, an slk, a porsche, and most importantly, a guy called Egg Nog. There is some other stuff involved but you will learn about that soon enough.

Nice car, looks like you take good care of it.

Post your proof of ownership to get some rep points

I've always loved VR-4's. Your car looks great, planning to do some extra engine modifications in the future? Keep us informed!

BTW I'm a Kiwi too! I live in Palmerston North, how about you?

I would like to get it to about 400hp. I think that is the sweetpoint, between drivability and performance. Some of my Club members have done that. In the meantime, as this car has 2x the power of my last car ( a Galant GTi-16v), I'll take my time, because 300hp is ample now.

My first tasks are uprated brakes (Brembos) and better tyres (not sure which). Safety before performance is my motto.

with the tiptronic transmission, is the shift patter forwards for up a gear or forwards for down a gear? the magna here has the INVECS 2 tiptronic optional and it has the shift patter as forwards is shift up and i think its rather illogical

If you manage to get a picture, I'll definately save it I'm collecting them, to post later...

The test is designed to be ultimate, because even if a car belongs to your neighbour or something, chances are slim that you'll be able to impale a peice of paper on their shifter

Will definitely get around to doing it. I place www.ultimatecarpage.com on the top and KIWITT on the bottom with the Shifter in the middle.

You may want to checkout This threadfor additional validation in the interim.
