Hi all! My name is Paul, I was directed here by Van. I've currently got a 1996/7 8th generation Mitsu Galant VR4 being complianced.

She's Trigger Mauve in colour and sports a 2.5l 6A13 Twin Turbo V6, All wheel drive, Active yaw control (same as the evo pre-super ayc), 5 speed manual. Can't wait for it to be finally finished. It's been in compliance since November last year :mad:

Anyway, here's some pics:

It's pretty nerve racking yeah, you REALLY have to put a lot of trust into the guy who's importing it for you. Luckily, the guy who imported mine used to own one so he knew what to look for.

I've got a list of mods already in my head like brake upgrades, recaro seats (or if there's a good cheap alternative I'm there!), new turbo manifolds and turbo piping, boost controller and piggyback ecu...but they'll all have to wait till I've paid off the loan first haha


Heyo man, welcome to the OC... I mean JDMST! :D

Ahoy hoy :P

No! this is not a CAMS affiliated club. Just a pure JDM affiliated one though :D

The car looks great. damn, i would love one if its not because of the expensive fuel.

Does it still have the wooden beads and the stench of curry from when it was a taxi?? :P

That makes sense then.

I remember last time i went on a trip to philippines i saw a fair amount of these rolling around their congested roads. So i am somewhat surprised to see some landing here.
