Hyundai Elantra 4g63 Shortblock Assembly
HOLD ON TIGHT! HERE WE GO!
We begin the blueprint and assembly on my 1992 Hyundai Elantra's
bastardized 4g63. The parts used in this are from a mash of different
brands and models outside of the typical 2.0L 4g63, but the specs and
standards I am following for its assembly are for the 2.0L DOHC.
If you want to follow along in your service manual to verify what I've done
here in this video, the processes we cover here detail pages 11C-95 through
11C-105 of the 1g Overhaul manual. I would prefer you not rip them from
the binding and throw them away, relying only on this video for
instruction... but rather use this video as a motivational guide, and as a
demonstration of the techniques involved in those sections.
You gotta do the cooking by the book.
I never had any intention of making instructional videos on this particular
car, but after it blew up I slowly realized it's actually a better case
study for how a 4g63 ticks than anything else in my driveway. There are
several reasons for this. One being that it's a mix of parts that
shouldn't be bolted together, and the other is that many of you watching my
videos aren't trying to build a 600hp engine out of aftermarket parts.
You're trying to put back together what used to be your daily driver. This
car covers those bases. Don't think for a second I won't go through this
same trouble and level of detail for the GSX. I will. When I do, having
this information in this video will give you a better understanding on how
and why I do things the way I do when I get there.
This was the shortest I could condense this video. I've never uploaded a
video this long, and I hope I never have to do it again. It took a month
to create on cutting-edge equipment, 16 hours to export, and 9 hours for
YouTube to process. My script for the voiceover is 6 times longer than the
whole script for the movie Pootie Tang. 6 times. Longer. Than a
4G63 Mitsubishi Powered Mustang - WTF?!
Never would have thought we would see a 122ci 4G63 Mitsubishi powered Fox
Body Mustang when we went
to Georgia for the LIGHTS OUT V drag race (DVD Pre Order -
This unique x275 car, built by CDub Racing out of Louisville, KY caught
everyones attention at the race just by the freak noise that it put out
compared to the rest of the field.

Why so SIRIUS? Kia 4g64?
This video assumes you're aware that various iterations of the 4g series
Mitsubishi engines are designated as Sirius I & II.
For detailed information about which engines qualify as which, visit:
There's also this at EvolutionM:
Good luck finding info about this using Hyundai and Kia in searches.
Wikipedia doesn't have any info about it grouped with the Sonatas either.
There is no question what this is, well illustrated in this video.
I apologize for the length of this video, but a lot of ground is covered in
a short time. Hopefully there's some information in here you may someday
use. I'm just trying to expose it because there doesn't seem to be any
real information floating around in the forums about this yet.
The car is a first-generation 1999-2005 Kia Optima sedan. It has the EVO
equivalent of a 4g64 2.4L. Before using any of these parts, do your
research, cross-reference your parts and know what you're getting into.
Using parts from this rotating assembly in a 2g Eclipse will require
aftermarket rods and/or custom pistons. This is information for those who
wish to frankenstein their builds, or save a buck... whichever.... either
one of those requires skill.

The All New 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Interior And Exterior review
Looking at the Mitsubishi Mirage, about the best you can say is that the
design is inoffensive. There's a reason for the bland, characterless front
end: aerodynamics, meaning that the rounded nose smooths the little car's
path through the air and uses very little fuel to do it. The rest of the
car's design is generic small hatchback, perhaps with a hint of
last-generation at the rear.
The materials inside are inexpensive, but Mitsubishi has crafted a
straightforward dashboard that doesn't really betray its hard-plastic
surfaces. Upholstery is simple black cloth with a subtle purple check. The
front seats are comfortable, but the seat cushions are short; the rear seat
will fit two adults, but while Mitsubishi calls this a five-passenger car,
the rear seat will only fit three if they're exceptionally skinny teens or
The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage suffers from a soft suspension with a lot of
body roll and tire squeal, along with a dead spot in the center of the
electric power steering that can find the car drifting toward the edges of
the lane with no feedback to the driver. The very small 14-inch wheels and
tires may be at least partially to blame. The ride is smooth and quiet on
good roads, but acceleration causes the engine noise to rise substantially
and broken pavements and surfaces are frequently jarring.
The high fuel economy comes at a cost, though. With a 74-horsepower 1.0-liter
three-cylinder engine, the Mirage is neither fast nor powerful. Paired with
a new continuously variable transmission (CVT), its performance away from
stoplights and around town is fine if you work it hard. A five-speed manual
transmission is also offered but it reduces the gas mileage to 37 mpg
combined. At highway speeds, though, there's very little margin indeed for
acceleration or passing, regardless of which transmission you choose.
The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is offered in just two trim levels: the base DE
and the better equipped ES. Beside the standard automatic climate control,
all 2015 Mirages have power locks, windows, and mirrors; a 60/40 split
folding rear seat back and variable intermittent wipers. The AM/FMCD audio
system has a USB port, an auxiliary input jack, and there's a 12-volt power
outlet in the console. Standard steel wheels are fitted with silver plastic
For the Mitsubishi Mirage ES model adds alloy wheels, push button start,
cruise control, a height adjustment for the driver's seat, leather
wrappings for the steering wheel and shift knob, fog lamps, Bluetooth
pairing, and audio controls on the steering wheel. It has more chrome and
silver trim accents as well.
