RWD TO AWD 4G63 EVO
so reinstalled the stock viscous coupler to make the center diff open
again, center locked diff in awd mode is not something I recommend, it
turns very badly when driving slow or trying to park....
Hyundai Elantra 4g63 Shortblock Assembly
HOLD ON TIGHT! HERE WE GO!
We begin the blueprint and assembly on my 1992 Hyundai Elantra's
bastardized 4g63. The parts used in this are from a mash of different
brands and models outside of the typical 2.0L 4g63, but the specs and
standards I am following for its assembly are for the 2.0L DOHC.
If you want to follow along in your service manual to verify what I've done
here in this video, the processes we cover here detail pages 11C-95 through
11C-105 of the 1g Overhaul manual. I would prefer you not rip them from
the binding and throw them away, relying only on this video for
instruction... but rather use this video as a motivational guide, and as a
demonstration of the techniques involved in those sections.
You gotta do the cooking by the book.
I never had any intention of making instructional videos on this particular
car, but after it blew up I slowly realized it's actually a better case
study for how a 4g63 ticks than anything else in my driveway. There are
several reasons for this. One being that it's a mix of parts that
shouldn't be bolted together, and the other is that many of you watching my
videos aren't trying to build a 600hp engine out of aftermarket parts.
You're trying to put back together what used to be your daily driver. This
car covers those bases. Don't think for a second I won't go through this
same trouble and level of detail for the GSX. I will. When I do, having
this information in this video will give you a better understanding on how
and why I do things the way I do when I get there.
This was the shortest I could condense this video. I've never uploaded a
video this long, and I hope I never have to do it again. It took a month
to create on cutting-edge equipment, 16 hours to export, and 9 hours for
YouTube to process. My script for the voiceover is 6 times longer than the
whole script for the movie Pootie Tang. 6 times. Longer. Than a
Turbo Dodge Colt GT Vs The World
This video shows my old red colt racing a few fast cars.
Mods on the colt
2.0 4G63 Stock
Stock Intercooler Piping
First race is vs a LS1 Firehawk with basic bolt ons and Spray ( I got beat)
Second Race is vs a LS1 Camaro that had previously run
11.7@116 (I beat it by a fender or so very close race
Third race was with a SN95 Supercharged Mustang est trap 120-123 (we raced
twice this video is not clear but I won one of the races lost the other. It
was very close either way
Some other races in there as well of other cars.
'89 Colt GT AWD 4G63-powered
Originally built by M+S recycling, using a 1g Eclipse AWD drivetrain and
powertrain. Sorry for the crappy filming, I was battling some pretty
4G63 AWD Mirage / Colt (Elvin Rivera's)
Here some videos of the progress of Elvin Rivera's car during this summer
(2010) car started runing 11.0 after the build and finished the summer with
a great pass of 9.6 @ 153 MPH
Hope you enjoy the video and dont forget to check out my other videos.

AWD Colt Crossmember
Audio by RojoDelChocolate
If my car wasn't destined to be All Wheel Drive, then I wouldn't have
needed to do any of this. For a FWD setup, I'd just mix and match engine
mounts from different models and it's a bolt-on affair.
But I can't.
I've got a transfer case in the way and I had to work around it. I wanted
one that closely resembled a factory part, and the factory part is roughly
1 7/8" stamped sheet metal in the shape of square tubing. Utilizing as much
of the original crossmember as I could, and thanks to these chassis being
sold in Japan and New Zealand, provisions are already on the chassis for an
AWD crossmember, so it's not as difficult to fabricate as it could have
been. I just can't get that crossmember in the United States... so I used
as much of the OE crossmember as I could and then filled in the gaps. What
I ended up with was the best thing I could envision.
I had no idea where this project would take me and everybody does things a
little differently. I haven't seen how EVERYbody does this part of the
job... though I've seen a few different methods online. Some were very
simple and effective, making really good use of weight. Some were
difficult to install. Some other designs seemed intrusive and took up a
lot of room in the engine bay. Room that I would want to use for other
things; however, almost ALL of the configurations were lighter than what I
I think mine's the most serviceable. I found I can install and remove both
pieces in any order which will have its conveniences later when I'm working
on it... and it's stronger than the factory equivalent while maintaining
the exact same function.
This part of the build was one of the biggest roadblocks to the Colt's
construction in my mind because it was a total unknown. If you're doing
this and you have this problem, just keep going back and forth from the
bench to the car for a test fit until you get it right. If you'd rather
buy one, don't ask me, I don't manufacture them. BUT, there is someone in
the 4g61t forums who will do it for you for a price, and he does
outstanding work from what I've seen. I'm disappointed that tape 5 was
lost because it illustrated the benefit of the cutouts. Tucking the
crossmember into the groove and maintaining at least a half-inch clearance
lets you raise it another inch and a half higher which helps GROUND
CLEARANCE. I've got the front pretty low on 16" steelies with a 3 1/2"
drop. It's about 1/8" lower than the oil pan, so it will be fine. I had
no idea what I needed to make before taking on this job (that's why it took
so long). That means what you're watching is me working on the plane while
I'm flying it. Not everyone would do it my way. I exceeded my own dang
expectations. In my opinion, I don't think it could have turned out any
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. I keep killing electronic hardware
left and right. The crankwalk video took out my fileserver. Let's hope
this isn't the start of a trend.
