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

I took the colt today to see what the little 4G61 was worth. The car made
440whp and 315tq on the first pull. Waited about 20 minutes for the second
pull and got osme video of it. THis pull ended up with 446whp 323tq. The
uncorrected numbers came out to 367whp 266tq. The correction factor was
1.21 today. Car was Dynoed at 6000ft above sea
level. turbo is a Holset HX-52. Boost was 30psi. The car is currently out of
fuel pump and injector. Car is powered by E85. Thanks for the help from all
of my friends and family. And for the effort everyone made to get this car
on the Dyno today.

Mitsubishi Mirage Evo Powered 4G63 (Colt)
Big Thanks to mates who have helped wrench on the car, run around for
parts, late nights wrenching even after midnight.
I cant say the car is finished yet but it will be engineered and street
registered before more crazyness begins.
This car was sold to me not even as a rolling shell. No engine, no
suspension etc. We had to make the car rolling to tow it back and start
work on it.
THere were some delays but these things cant be rushed.
I rebuilt the transmission due to some worn bearings on the input shaft,
quite nasty looking. Found out when modifying the gearbx properly to drive
the front wheels. i.e modifying diff and transfer case.
Engine already warmed up before revving.
Enjoy the video as I did building the car.
More to come soon.
