Hello All,
I just bought myself some spare RVR's for a few reasons:
- I wanted to see if they would work as a family car -
        Outcome: Might stick to a more modern car as a family vehicle.
- I wanted the drivetrains for some other projects
         Outcome: Might be the go.. into a Lancer or Galant
- I thought having some spare 4G63 motors would come in handy
        Outcome: 7 bolt engine being the issue.  Will have to start building Lancers..
So, my questions...
I have 2 HSG and 1 SSG.
2 are auto and 1 is manual.
My questions are:
1. Do the Manual and Autos vary in rear diff specs (ratios)?
2. Do the Manual and Autos have the same rear diff subframe (intercompatible)
3. Are the transfer cases the same?
4. Are the transmission mounts the same?
5. Is the rear end compatible with any other mitsubishi car? ie, VR4 / EVO / GSR
6. Are the front or rear axles compatible with any other Mitsubishi (VR4 / EVO etc).
7. What are the turbo specs for the Manual and Auto?  16G in all?
I would really like to know what options i have for these cars.
I think i could potentially build 1 RVR up to its former glory but will have to sacrifice the other 2as parts vehicle.
Specific thoughts:
1. Merge 2 RVR's into 1 good one.  Most likly keep a HSG alive by transferring a SSG engine and transmission into it.  Strip down the other HSG.
2. Use the other HSG floor pan into a lancer 3 door hatch (maybe)
3. Transfer the RVR drivetrain into a Galant VR4 (circuit car - Manual)
4. Transfer the RVR drivetrain into a Galant VR4 (drag car - Auto)
5. Transfer the RVR drivetrain into a Lancer GSR (street car - Auto)
Thanks in advance for feedback.!

1) yes, 4.1 to 4.9 roughly i believe

2) yes, interchangeable

3) i believe so but cant confirm 100%, i changed mine with the one that came with my manual box in my conversion

4) lower crossmember yes, tranny to chassis, no - one in their own

5) not sure

6) not sure

7) manual is TD05 16G from factory, auto is a smaller TD04 13G


SSG and HSG engines are different btw, and can come in 2 different head configurations ive heard with cam sensor locations and whatnot. 


If you do end up having a spare manual loom through all this, ill be more than happy to tell you to shut up and take my money. Will hopefully get mine on the road...
