correct me if i am wrong, but i always thought that a Vr-4 Galant had a Twin Turbo 4 cylinder engine, not a 2.5 V6.

Here are the Mitsubishi Galant Models - (Not to be confused with the 3000 GT VR-4 which was a 3.0 V6 coupe)

1988-1991 VR-4 was a 2.0 4 cylinder - Single Turbo - 200 hp ?
1992-1995 VR-4 was a 2.0 V6 - Twin Turbo 240 hp
1996-2002 VR-4 was a 2.5 V6 - Twin Turbo 280 hp

With my minor modifications, I have an estimated 300hp.

I like VR-4's probably better than EVO's because VR-4's are understated sleepers but Evo's are totally in your face, loud and proud.

Nothing like Sleeper Style.

Thought I'd let you guys know I still have my VR-4, albeit, with better alloys and a new 3" stainless performance exhaust.

Have seriously considered mods to the engine. Collegues in my club have spent $1,000's (one at nearly $20,000) for incremental gains of 20-30% more power, whereas I am happy with the performance of mine.

I intend to get 10+ years out of it if not more, and modding the engine power may place additional long-tern strains on other components, that may also need expenditure, so I think best leave well-enough alone, if longevity is my goal.

As to replacement in a few years time
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe
Mazda RX-8
Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart (Maybe ?, it's bonnet is too high for me)

I always prefer cars with a slow slung bonnet. Most car these days have high bonnets in order to protect pedestrians if you hit them, when I prefer not to hit them at all.

If you're going for an RX-8 in future then see if you can pick up a ProDrive version (RHD only) or if not that then the last generation model which included SOME of the ProDrive mods and setup. ( The R3 also benefits from an extra oil injector so even if not maintained well it wears better )
