1989 Mitsubishi Mirage turbo: For one year only, back in 1989, Japan imported 1,500 of these cars onto the U.S. shores. Also, for the same year came the Dodge & Plymouth Colt GT, with all of the same substance that makes up the Mirage. They were powered by the Mitsubishi 4G61t : a 1.6 liter DOHC, non-intercooled & turbocharged 4 cylinder. It's basically the infamous 2.0 liter turbo motor (4G63t) that you find in the Eclipse or Talons, but it has a destroked crank and slightly smaller pistons. For more information on these fun little cars, go to www.4g61t.org
I bought one last year and got it fixed up just this January. After 400 miles, I am more in love with this car! Big plans for the future, indeed! I took this video a couple days after I got it running, and the road conditions sort of prohibit any good display of performance. Can't wait for summer!!!
First video ever.....sorry if I sound like a bumbling dumbass

Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
