Tuning the mitsubishi Galant VR4

The Galant first appeared back in 1969. It was not until 1987 that a high powered version appeared with the 2.0 turbo engine producing 200 bhp. Looking at the high spec Galants we get to see the true potention for a Galant tuning project.

In order to compete in the WRC Mitsubishi produced the VR4 a highly tuned road going version using the 4G63 engine. This formed the basis of the later Lancer Evo and is a popular engine choice for FTO owners.

Suspension settings, lowering and stiffening

On the track your priority is fast cornering and suspension plays a large part in this. Track conditions are quite forgiving and you can make some compromises like using hard suspension and lowering the car for optimum aerodynamics and a low centre of gravity.

This works well because tracks are fairly flat and you do not have a carrier bag full of eggs in the car from your return trip to the supermarket.

Sports ignition coils and performance coil packs

Lets look at the job of the coil in the spark system and see what it does.

Just as a power transformer converts mains 240 volts into a usable 9 volts for your charger or appliance a coil will increase the voltage.

A car battery/alternator will produce a paltry 12volts, certainly not enough to jump an air gap and create a spark.

An ignition coil raises the voltage in some installations between 20 and up to 40,000 volts and this allows the creation of a spark which can jump the air gap between the plugs.

Converting a FWD to a RWD

We look at converting a front wheel drive car to rear wheel drive. Problems and shortcuts and suggestions for a FWD to RWD conversion project guide.

Cars are more fun to drive when the power is to the back wheels. It makes for lots of oversteer rather than the safer and more predictable understeer manufacturers build into FWD cars.
