Honestly, US spec headlights are not attractive on many cars, which made this galant not so attractive.

I don’t believe this version was brought over for the VR4 configuration.

So some appeal was lost there. The motor offered was the 2.4l with FWD.

Here is the typical looking US spec Galant. 

Here are some Galants from Asia, notice the headlights are different and gives it a better look. Also, in those countries, the aftermarket was healthy for parts.

 Very clean looking Galant.

Here is write up for JDM headlight conversions from thegalantcenter.org

USDM Wiring Removal/Beginning Procedure:
1. Locate your USDM headlight wiring under the hood
2. Find the connector and unplug it from the car harness
3. Using your wire cutters cut the red/pink, blue, and black wires so you have enough to play with (about 2-3″ from the connector).
4. Take the USDM wiring with connector out of the car.
5. Strip about 1″ of insulation off the 3 wires
6. Get your JDM wiring and strip about 1″ off the 5 wires
