PB 7.19 @ 190 ROB NOVAK - 2L 4G63 DATSUN (TEST DAY 1/09/2012)
Jett Racing had their Datsun 1200 Ute out today doing some testing for the
upcoming Jamboree. The car behind driver Rob Novak, has only been getting
faster lately and smashed out a
personal best 7.19 @ 190mph on the final run of it's day. The transmission
was then removed and put in team owner, Collin Willshire's 2L 4G63
Mitsubishi Eclipse. Collin ran Australia's first 6 second 4 cylinder pass
with a 6.98 @ 197mph but sadly was not captured on my camera :( We will
make sure we get the next one. You can see both cars at the QLD Jamboree on
September 22nd and 23rd.

Things learned: Need bigger brakes to hold it back on the line, need LSD to
hold all those torques to the ground, maybe a line lock.

Dsm Shootout 2012 Compilation
Some clips I put together in a hurry. I bought the camera the day before
the shootout, so sorry about the quality. Next year ill be more prepared
with a tripod and better camcorder. I have some from the stands also a
friend recorded, just wanted to get something together real quick. Will
post some more soon.
The video starts with the first pass I recorded on sat. The passes are in
order as they happened. Some turned out terrible, so didnt make the cut.
It was hard for people not to get in the way. The last pass is the quick
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.

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.
