Mitsubishi Galant GTO

It was still a rainy day this month around. Getting heavier down pour sometimes and its limit our movement to mingles with cars. Despite the wet climate, En. Amey decided that it’s the time his beloved GTO to have a new “breather nose” transplant. From a Solex Mikuni to DCOE Weber 40.

For those out there that haven’t heard of this Mitsubishi Galant GTO.. I’m not blaming you guys since the car it self was a limited production from Mitsubishi Motors.  The Mitsubishi Colt Galant GTO (Gran Turismo Omologato) was first shown as the Galant GTX-1 showcar at the 1969 Tokyo Motor Show. Sales began in November 1970, when it was the flagship hardtop variant of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’s then-new Colt Galant sedan.

Previous setup was using a side draft Solex Mikuni on his Astron 2000 engine and the performance during idling was not that good. He got another plan, a Side Draft Weber DCOE 40 lying under his bed for some time now and planning on installing it.

Cleaning up in progress.

You can see the manifold gasket were soaked up with petrol mixture. Source of leaking and causing the engine “un-tuneable”
Weber DCOE 40
The old intake manifold with a custom linkage need to be kept away for now. A bit longer shaft compare to the new intake.

Hard inspection onto the carb before starting to install it.

While waiting for the rest of the fella member at Pomen Yala doing the cleaning and servicing, our ordered item has arrived. The new manifold gasket for the 4G52 engine. We can just make our-self a custom manifold gasket instead we choose to order a new one. Don’t want to take any risk as later tuning the weber might give us a headache.

Fitting in the weber and now for tuning it up

Having everything done for the day, we almost wrap up at 3AM in the morning. To be continue setting up the weber later some time. It’s a rainy season now, have to wait until the coast is clear.
