Ryan P's 4g63 AWD Mirage drag race runs 9.61 @ 143.69 MPH - Compilation
Ryan P's 4g63 AWD Mirage at New England Dragway 4/13/2012.
Quote from Ryan about the night:
"Finally 60'ed the damn thing and it directly effected the ET. Well, there is more to it than that... Of the trailer the car was running ok due to many attempts to make it run well in the past. Needless to say it was all f'ed up. Kevin came over and pointed out a few things which got changed. It actually made the car run worse than before. We did some more adjustments and he changed some settings the car ran ten times better. At this point the car was ready I made a two three pull so see where we were at. It responded well so I rode it out to a 134 mph if I recall. Kevin tuned some more and tried two more runs and the car would not shift. Locked out of 4th one and 3rd the other. I figured something was wrong with the trans, but luckily I had a Shep Trans Rep there to look it over. Thanks Mike, I had a washer that was binding up the linkage. Just took that out and found that it shifts like it should. Made the pass and it felt pretty good! I could feel the thing down on power top end. I knew it was a better 60' and I was more anxious to see the slip to see the 60' then the ET."

6&7-Bolt 4g63 Front Case & Oil Pump Rebuild
Here we disassemble, clean, inspect and rebuild both popular 4g63 front cases. This is not difficult, you just need to know what to look for.
Something else that happens in this video is the analysis of one of the factors that caused my 7-bolt engine to fail. It wasn't the only cause, and we'll talk about that later, but left to its own devices and without the other contributing factors, it would have been the only cause.
Blueprint 106 - Cylinder Bore Inspection
We're close to the end of the 100-level series. In this video I show you how to measure the cylinder bores using 2 different tools. I compare the results and illustrate what to look for to determine whether or not your engine is in-spec.
The block I'm using is a 6-bolt turbo 4g63 from early '92. It has 150,000 miles and this video also serves as a testimony for the durability of Mitsubishi's cast-iron solid-decked Sirius I engines. This engine will be cut for a new set of pistons, so these measurements are needed to determine what size pistons I need to get.
.030" is as far overbored as you should ever take a 4g63. Boring larger than that will take too much off the side clearances between the cylinder walls and result in compromised strength from hot spots. The only time you'll ever need to cut a bigger hole is when an imperfection prevents you from using the pistons you have, or if you're changing to a larger piston. If you cut the block to its service limit, you have no room to fix an imperfection should one develop... so it's best to cut as little as you can get away with. Boring a cylinder .020" over does not significantly increase its displacement.

Build and initial runs for the new car. Looking forward to some big improvements for 2012. Thanks to everyone who has helped along the way, And my sponsors.

4G63 Hyundai Excel Dedication
This a dedication to my old 93 Hyundai Excel with a 4g63t swap out of a eclipse 2.0 turbo. I sold the car to later find out that was a big mistake. Don't know where it is now so I assume that someone took the "good" parts out of the car and scrap the shell. This was the best car I ever had together and I just wanted to make this video in the memory of this car. I know it was just a car but it meant more to me than that, I'm sure some car guy junkies feel the same way about their old cars that regret getting rid of or selling.
PB 7.19 @ 190 ROB NOVAK - 2L 4G63 DATSUN (TEST DAY 1/09/2012)
Jett Racing had their Datsun 1200 Ute out today doing some testing for the upcoming Jamboree. The car behind driver Rob Novak, has only been getting faster lately and smashed out a personal best 7.19 @ 190mph on the final run of it's day. The transmission was then removed and put in team owner, Collin Willshire's 2L 4G63 Mitsubishi Eclipse. Collin ran Australia's first 6 second 4 cylinder pass with a 6.98 @ 197mph but sadly was not captured on my camera :( We will make sure we get the next one. You can see both cars at the QLD Jamboree on September 22nd and 23rd.
