Eclipse Spyder 4g64 Valve Tick Fixed
I noticed nobody has a video of how to fix a 4G64's infamous valve tick...
so i did it myself! For those of you who are experienced mechanics i
apologize for breaking it down so much. The job itself isn't complex at
all, took me about two hours total work time. I hope this helps and if you
have any questions just leave a comment.

If that doesn't work just google "4G64 Lash Adjusters"

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."

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.

Old School Supra Powered Corolla Crash at New England Dragway 10/15/11
New England Dragway's Import Madness
October 15, 2011
Both cars are low 8 second 1/4 mile cars powered by supra engines.
The lanes were really slippery this day and some of the supra powered
corollas and other old school imports were having trouble getting traction.
The first car has a near crash and amazing save, almost rolled.
The second car was not so lucky, no footage of the actual accident but the
aftermath speaks for itself, luckily both drivers were ok.
