    Hi guys owned my vr4 for a while now and decided it was time to join up.
    Was stockish when purchased as a pearl white 5 speed manual with ayc and moon roof winter spec model.
    Picked up a wrecked galant that had plenty of work done ( was also white and if anybody knows details pm me please) it had tiens with edfc , 3 port boost with 15 psi setting and tune , supposed hi flow turbos and maybe mild cams , has an LSD front and rear , Evo box and transfer were said to be in it , exedy clutch also.
    Since put all this in the leggy as well as grey centre dash trim so it makes for a nice all round package.
    If any body knows of the specs of the galant or knew or it let me know please.
    Nice to meet you all on here
    Ross aka boost-wagon

    Welcome Ross.
    welcome Ross. That's keen getting. 2 to make 1. I like it. Did you do the transfer of equipment?
    It's unlikely the Galant had hi flows and cams. There are only a few people in the country on Ozvr4 that have a cams and you can count on 1 hand people with hi-flows. That said, someone could have done it who isn't on our forum.

    Post some pics of your rides!

    the galant was a wreck a mate and I bought which had a massive hit in the front hence the parts changeover, the leggy its all in now was stock. but this is why I'm chasing info. I'm getting some pics of the car to make it easier haha @jungle also forgot that person who was said to of built the car was on the forums and was said to of had a fair bit to do with them

    Sounds good Ross.
    For your info the cams come from New Zealand and so far only myself and 1 other have hi flows, which is why've said it was unlikely.
    But a dyno pull will show what it can really do!
    Post some pics!!

    You transplanted the high flows from the wreck to yours? if you have any photos of the compressor wheel we could probably tell u if its high flow.
