Brewed Twin Scroll Full Race EVO turbo Galant VR4 AEM V2 ems

Mitsubishi has been a heavy hitter in the WRC (WRC, D1, time attack video, pictures and updates)for over 2 decades, with the 4g63 engine stretching almost the entire 20 year period it has proven to be one of the best performing and reliable engines of the series.  The 4g63 also has a huge fallowing with the public enthusiast, whether it be found in an Eclipse, Talon, Galant, or any of the Evolution model lancers (besides the EVO X of course) the 4g63 has been making and braking records sense it first appeared on the market in the late 80s.
Here at Brewed we were lucky enough to find a our 4g63 making its home in a Galant VR4 chassis # 891/2000. With the Galant being AWD, 4 doors and sporting a roof rack a car full of friends and roof full of either boards or bikes is simply a must, this is a perfect DD. Being that the engine/chassis was already 19 years old we decided a Brewed style restoration was needed to bring the VR4 up to our standards. Here are a few teaser pics of the engine bay, new specially Brewed Race gas comingVERY soon.

South Korea Auto Show

The Korean Auto Show may not have been comparable in size to the SEMA or PRI shows in the states, however the Korean manufactures as well as imports from Japan, United States and Germany did not hold back. With great booths, displays and models (both cars and Korean women) the 2011 Korean Auto Show is the perfect place to get a feel for the OE Automotive market in South Korea.
With an all but complete lack of any aftermarket manufacturing companies present at the show a motorsports enthusiast may feel some disappointment upon arrival. This feeling is however short lived as many manufactures not only brought out new prototypes but also many different factory built race cars. Everything from light weight GM FWD 4cyl powered road race cars to a fully prepared Hyundai Genesis Coupe.  Of course the female models kept the cameras flashing and the Korean men on edge and blushing.
Enjoy the pictures and keep an eye on Korea where a unique (for lack of better terms) Tuner scene is growing by the second. Special thanks to my good friend Youngdae Kim of ProConcept for inviting me to the show.
