[200q20v] What competition???

Speaking of the AWD turbo Mitsubishis, yes, the Galant VR-4
in terms of raw performance is one seriously fast sedan.

However, IMHO, the cars have a fatal flaw that precludes me
from ever buying one again. The transfer case has a design
defect that results in spontaneous case seal failure, resulting
in the loss of transfer case oil and the results are that the
transfer case seizes up. If this occurs at high speed, you are
likely to lose control of the vehicle.

I've had the case fail on me twice, both on extended trips. Never
again will I drive that thing more than 50 miles from home. Recall
or not, after experiencing that, I don't trust the design.
