This is the documentary of the blood, sweat, and beers that went into the 2.0L conversion to a 2.6L Stroker engine race car. Built for the DSM Shootout with some friendly gear heads. Its been for one test drive around the block and it was a blast just to see this beast drive under its own power after months of hard work.
THIS CAR IS CURRENTLY BEING PARTED OUT. ALL ENGINE PARTS ARE FOR SALE, SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY... HEAD HAS SOLD, BUT THE SHORT-BLOCK IS UP FOR GRABS ALONG WITH EVERYTHING ELSE LISTED AT THE END OF THE VIDEO. MOST OF YOU GUYS SHOULD KNOW WHAT THESE PARTS ARE WORTH ALREADY SO PLEASE SEND SERIOUS OFFERS TO ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) THANKS!

Cylinder Head 103 - Deck Tech
How to clean, inspect, and determine what you can do with your cylinder head. Also how WHAT you do affects your oil system. There are many variables at play when you make changes to your cylinder head deck from your oil system, compression ratio, your valve timing and potentially even disaster. 'best not to go that far with it. Watch this video and avoid it if you're building your own 4g63 head.
The differences between this head and a 1g head are mostly related to port sizes on the intake and Exhaust, and different sized head bolt holes. The 7-bolt uses an 11mm bolt, and a 6-bolt uses 12mm. 1g heads have gigantic intake ports, but aside from that, valve geometry, oil system functionality and the service limits are all the same.
Also, click these links for in-depth discussions about oil port modifications for all generations of Mitsubishis, and specifically for 2g head installations on a 1g block.

Possibly 2 of the best threads on 'Tuners for anyone considering a 1g-in-a-2g or for anyone that wants to know everything about a DSM oil system.
Blueprint 108 - inspect the deck
There's a reason why there are no subtitled specifications in this video for the block. It's because they don't exist in either service manual, 1g or 2g. You're not supposed to remove material from a block on the deck surface because it has ill effects on parts of the combustion chamber geometry, and alters your compression ratio. It can be done intentionally in some cases for a desired side-affect, but if you have to deck a 4g63 head, it would be advised to use a thicker head gasket. The Mitsubishi Multi-Layered-Steel or MLS gasket is slightly thicker than the OEM composite gasket. Also, HKS, Power Enterprise, Cometic, and other performance brands all make MLS gaskets that are .065 and thicker.
THERE IS ONE ERROR IN THE VIDEO. I said a block with .002" warpage is junk. I was completely and totally wrong. While I don't wish to spread misinformation, I don't think it's a big enough error to warrant re-editing this video. I just wasn't paying attention. .002" warpage on a cylinder head is the service limit before it needs machining. I meant to say .02"... or two HUNDREDTHS (not thousandths) of an inch.
...and here's my justification...
A warped block to me is junk either way even if its minimal because your MLS gasket will never seal unless both the head and the block are perfectly flat. Trust your machine shop to get the values for how much is taken off, and buy the correct thickness gasket for your machine work.
A factory head gasket (composite) is .051"
The MLS Mitsubishi gasket is available in the stock .051 and a .062"
Cometic makes gaskets up to .072"
There are some brands that go as high as .127", but I'd have thrown both the block and head away long before then.

The quickest 4G63 in the world just went quicker. I apologize for the shaky video, the camera didn't want to auto-focus for our camera man. I also included some GoPro footage of the same run with a great 4G63 engine view.
Mitsubish 4G63 Block Resurfacing
