6&7-Bolt 4g63 Front Case & Oil Pump Rebuild
Here we disassemble, clean, inspect and rebuild both popular 4g63 front
cases. This is not difficult, you just need to know what to look for.
Something else that happens in this video is the analysis of one of the
factors that caused my 7-bolt engine to fail. It wasn't the only cause,
and we'll talk about that later, but left to its own devices and without
the other contributing factors, it would have been the only cause.
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.

Ryan P's 4g63 AWD Mirage drag race runs 9.61 @ 143.69 MPH - Compilation
Ryan P's 4g63 AWD Mirage at New England Dragway 4/13/2012.
Quote from Ryan about the night:
"Finally 60'ed the damn thing and it directly effected the ET. Well, there
is more to it than that... Of the trailer the car was running ok due to
many attempts to make it run well in the past. Needless to say it was all
f'ed up. Kevin came over and pointed out a few things which got changed. It
actually made the car run worse than before. We did some more adjustments
and he changed some settings the car ran ten times better. At this point
the car was ready I made a two three pull so see where we were at. It
responded well so I rode it out to a 134 mph if I recall. Kevin tuned some
more and tried two more runs and the car would not shift. Locked out of 4th
one and 3rd the other. I figured something was wrong with the trans, but
luckily I had a Shep Trans Rep there to look it over. Thanks Mike, I had a
washer that was binding up the linkage. Just took that out and found that
it shifts like it should. Made the pass and it felt pretty good! I could
feel the thing down on power top end. I knew it was a better 60' and I was
more anxious to see the slip to see the 60' then the ET."
