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

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

WORLDS FASTEST AWD / 4G63 DATSUN / 20B RX7 IN TESTING
Willowbank Raceway held the 1st of the 2012 Top Sportman Series on the
weekend. Reece McGregor and the Heat Treatments Skyline thought it would be
a good chance to have some test runs in their worlds fastest RB26 powered
4wd skyline. The team worked hard all day and were rewarded with a final
pass or 7.64, not far off their 7.56 record, although something tells me
theres plenty more to come from this car again.
Another car using the test lane was Rob Novak in his Jett Racing 4G63
powered Datsun 1200. The team made adjustments through the day and saw a PB
7.35 @ 187mph on the second last pass of the night, the final wild pass on
video then saw a transmission failure but a happy team none the less.
Final team testing was the Direct Clutch/Promodz Rx7, the car is 3/4
chassis and a running 3rotor 20BT tweaked by Mazfix. The team recently made
adjustments in the rear and also in transmission and are starting to see
results, it ran a 7.99 @ 171mph through the day, then later in the night
suffered a leaking Boost pipe.
Owners Jerry and Dan tell me they havent even started to push the motor
yet, so another car with plenty more to come, and im sure that pb 7.80 will
soon be slashed.
These cars should all be running at the up and coming Sydney Jamboree at
WSID and by the looks of things have some unfinished business they want to
take care of :)
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.

Car has a ton more left in it, need to get trans issues worked out.
This was the result of non stop work, many people coming together to make
it happen, and an at the track rebuild of his transmission that same day.
Here is a quote from his post on our local forum about the ordeal starting
at Friday night after having issues on a test pass:
"Back in the pits I ruled out any electrical issues and narrowed it down to
a mechanical issue within the transmission. At this point it was about 10
PM and I had a head ache so I called it a night. Just before I hit the
pillow I got a few much needed phone calls from my trans builder and Bill
Hincher with some much needed words of encouragement. Saturday morning I
got up at 7am and started to removing the transmission with plans to tear
it down to find the issue (mind you i have never disassembled an auto trans
or have any clue of their internal workings) With a small list of things to
check over I got right to it, in the mean time I sent Tom W. to Summit
Racing about 2 hours away with my debit card and no shopping list. I just
told him call m when you get there ill have a list by that time. Sure
enough within an hour with the help of some newly acquired friends Jason
Crooks and Jake Lipton we had the trans torn down and found the direct drum
to have some burnt up clutches. At this time I called Tom and he was able
to pick up a TCI master rebuild kit for a whopping $130 and started to head
back. While waiting for Tow to get back we noticed that the direct drum had
some scoring where the clutch pack floats inside and it was suggested that
we have it machined before reassembly so off we went to the local machine
shop to have the drum cut. Chuck at Wakeman Power machine was more then
welcoming and gave me a super hook up 12 qts of type f trans fluid, 4 cans
of brake clean, 1 tube of ultra black, and machine work for a $38 WOW is
all I can say Thanks Chuck ! Back to the track we went to finish assembly.
Our 1st round qualifier was at 7PM and we just topped off the trans fluid
and jack stand tested at 6:45 everything looked good so we towed the car to
the line just in time and ended up running a new personal best on this very
Even though the rest of the weekend didn't go very good I couldn't be
happier it was truly amazing that our group along with my newly acquired
friends where able to pull this off and for that I'm so thankful to be part
of such a great community."
