Yes it is possiable if you can find the parts off of a 3G Eclipse (2000-2005). I know of only two Galants who have done this conversion.

Hardest part is just finding the parts. I don't have an personal experience in doing it. We do have a member from our boards doing alot of research and will attempt it next year. You will find him our boards. www.dnaracing.net/board

He screen name is 4G64t.

I want to do this as well, like prophet said, the hardest part is just getting the parts alone. once you have accumulated all of the parts, it shouldnt be a hard task.

yeah i dont think it should be to hard either but hopefully we will both get it done, i heard you pull it has a few cars that would possibly have the parts now i just have to find the time to go strip everything out, is there anyone who could give me a detailed list of what i would need just so i can double check?

after searching on net and asking from people, finally, i decided to swap my glant too. I am getting 2002 eclipse manual parts for my 99 galant. I have talked to few mechanics and finally got someone who can do really cheap comparing to others. it will cost me around 1200 for everything. I hope it works. then after that I will try puting turbo in. I might be done uin couple weeks. good luck all ppl who are doing swap out there. PEACE :-)
