Here is another time lapse vid showing me removing the 7 bolt head from my 6 bolt engine in my 1995 Eagle Talon TSI AWD. I had to remove it this time because of a bent valve. I worked in the comfort of my garage this time instead of the driveway because it was probably 10° or 20° outside.
The video does cut before i get the head off, and that is only because I was tired of changing batteries and SD cards in the camera. If you don't beleive I got the head off, just watch my previous head removal vid.
Cylinder Head 101 - Remove Cams Rockers & Lifters
Going through a 4g63 Cylinder Head? You're on the right channel. I don't
know how many parts there will be to this series, I suppose it could go on
forever... We all have different ways of doing it, and I'm going to show
This video won't put a dent in most people's grey matter outside of
entertainment value... but I tried to keep it fun. I'd like to leave at
least a small dent. But no music in these because they're going to cover a
lot of ground and fast. I'm not doing anything difficult. This part of
this job really isn't. Most everybody pays someone else to do the
complicated stuff for them, and those people do it every day so it's still
easy unless you earn your money to pay for it from difficult and degrading
But this video's about getting started. There's some safety and
organization tips to be aware of before diving in. Stuff that could help
people whether or not they even own a Mitsubishi. Everything else is in
Pulling the GSX motor (1080 HD)
I've done this video before. Not in HD, but this time I'm leaving you
without an audio track to drown out what I'm doing. In previous videos I
removed the transmission separately. Not this time. This is how you pick
it out in one piece. No subtitles to read or block the view. Those of you
looking for granular info about this video will find it here.
In order to remove a 4g63 AWD drivetrain, you'll need to disconnect the
following components... not necessarily in this order... and my car isn't
exactly stock, but this is what you're after. Some things you can leave
connected, especially if they're stock, but I removed them for safety
reasons and because I routed some modified items differently. The timeline
is listed here for your convenience.

7:46 Remove the reverse switch to prevent damaging it
7:52 Remove the timing-side engine mount.
8:03 Slightly lower the engine and remove the vacuum lines and brake Booster hose from the back of the
8:12 Remove the ground wire from the back of the motor
8:17 Remove the last thing you overlooked.
8:30 Remove the engine and transmission in one piece.
The crank pulley, transmission mount bracket, and reverse switch removal
allows you more wiggle room without damaging either those parts or
scratching up the chassis. The trans mount bracket loves to get caught on
the passenger-side brake lines. The speed sensor is protected by the rear
motor mount bracket, so you can leave it in place.
I replaced my AC compressor during the transmission replacement, but never
charged the system. If you have working AC, un-bolt the compressor and
hang it from a bolt on the firewall using heavy-gauge wire. That way you
don't have to evacuate the refrigerant and drive up the cost of repairing
your car with an AC service, filter-drier and expansion tube. Don't let it
hang from the lines because they can leak or even break.
The Story of my Talon Tsi
I purchased a 95 eagle talon tsi awd in the summer of 2009 after graduating
High school. I did some minor modifications, bigger injectors, 14b turbo, 20lbs of Boost, safc tuning, pulled like a sombish.
Then disaster struck, I threw a rod out my stock block. So 6 bolt swap time
it is. Kept every thing stock for a stock rebuild. My intentions are cheap
and reliable. Cleaned all engine components, new wiseco rings, honed block,
cometic hg, arp headstuds, oem 6 bolt pistons and rods. Gonna be running
14b for the break in period then ill slap the 18g on and get a tune.

Surfacing 4g63t head with Rottler F68A Cut #2
2nd and final cut, just another 0.001". This time we got the rest of it all
cleaned up. Sprayed a little WD on there first, slowed down the feed rate,
ended up with a roughness average of 6.9 microinches. Not bad! My MLS head
gasket should be happy. :)
0-60mph Eagle Talon TSI AWD
My first 2 0-60 pulls when I was tuning the car getting ready for the
track. Don't want to ruin the surprise for the numbers at the track so you
only get first 2 pulls.
Cylinder Head Valve Train Teardown Video-Engine Building DVD
Buy the "Basic Engine Building" DVD
Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 13: Valve Train
The valve train is all of the engine parts, inside the cylinder head, that
control the opening and closing of the valves. The camshaft, lifters,
pushrods, rocker arms, and valve springs and the valves themselves, all
make up the valve train in all motors.
In this section we show the proper way to disassemble and organize the
entire system. Gives example of rocker shafts on some motors. A great
accessory for this is Goodson tools VTO 80 valve train organizer tray, to
keep all your parts together in the right order. Also covers the certain
tools you need like a Craftsman pick set, and a lifter extractor tool.
Great shots of our marine engine and the sludge inside it before it went
out to the machine shop!
