6 bolt 4g63 in 2g Eclipse GSX cylinder head removed in under 10 mins
Removing the head of a 4G63 in 10x speed. The project got delayed a few months. After finishing it and cranking it over, Interference in the cylinder was discovered. Shamefully, I admit my mistakes were: 1) Not putting the spark plugs in immediately after installing the head. 2) The bad habit of using my Valve Cover as a parts tray and 3) Putting off the project too long, so I didn't recognize a missing bolt from a custom fabrication. The head needed new valve seats, valves and some welding. Wiseco and the machinist both thought I'd be OK running the piston after smoothing out hot spots, but I ordered a new piston not wanting to risk the deep gouge in it with the high Boost I plan to run. Peace of mind is priceless. The danger in being over confident is sometimes you skip triple checking stuff. I've built that engine at least 5 times and got careless. You can see the port work I did on the head @ http://www.southernutahautos.com under "Tech Tips" and "Beyond Bolt-ons"
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 you mine. 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 means. 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 the videos!
1995 Eagle Talon TSi AWD project; from Beginning to current. (Not completed).
In this video I take you on a little journy though the past 5-8 months and the work completed on my Talon. It is nowhere near done quite yet, well...for body it is. There are still many aspects I am planning on hitting, such as the engine.. I will be building a 2.3L stroker with a Holset HX35 turbocharger and the works.. But in time it will happen, certainly not right away. I have yet to apply for a job, but I am working on it. Thanks for watching. God bless.
The RED DEMON - 8 Second Talon
The Boostin' Performance RED DEMON dominating the Gangster class at KOTS X... This car is NO JOKE, nearly 1000hp to the wheels and with low 8 second E/T's... it's no wonder it KILLED the game and finally represented the AWD cars at KOTS! Congrats on the win guys.
