4G93 or 4G61 or 4G15?

I'm pretty sure that you will thinking, what on hell that is that code that I've been put up there. For those who crazy in modding their car, they surely know what code is that. That is car engine code. Let me give some info on it:

Mitsubishi Motors uses a simple four-digit naming scheme for its automobile engines:

The first digit signifies the number of cylinders
The second is the fuel type; "G" for gasoline
The third is the engine family
The fourth is the engine model
The first digit is sometimes omitted, shifting the entire scheme by one to make room for another character, such as "T" for turbocharged or "B" for second-generation.

I4
Mitsubishi has developed five families of straight-4 engines:

4G1x "Orion" - 1.2 L to 1.5 L
4G3x "Saturn" - 1.2 L to 1.8 L
4G5x "Astron" - 2.0 L to 2.6 L "Silent Shaft"
4G6x "Sirius" - 1.6 L to 2.4 L
4G9x - 1.6 L to 2.0 L

The reason why I put this engine code is because my dad’s car needs to be repair. Well, his car was bought around year 1997-98 and now I can say, this is the period where those almost 10 years car will have their ‘arthritis’. His car having this ‘gear box’ problem since past 8-9 month and to repair or replace it, I’m sure it will exceed RM800. In the meanwhile, I’ve already change the carburetor but the carburetor that I’ve got for replacement are useless (which is a secondhand parts) and since all of this problem already arise, I know that the alternator also need to be change (according to my previous experience with my Kancil) .

To (at lest) makes the replacing those parts a bit cheaper, I am considering an engine transplant. So now, I’m in a mission to locate/find and buy this engine. My wife (who, fortunately,) works at a local workshop that deals with importing these engine and spare parts from Japan, got a good deal from her colleague at Kuala Lumpur. Her colleague spotted this 4G93 engine which is still in ‘brand new’ state. The engine only clock 5000 kilometers on the odometer. But *sigh*, the mechanic said, this engine very suitable for Proton Wira but quite hard to put in Iswara engine bay. This and that need to be change.

Now, he advises me to get this 4G61 or 4G15 engine. So, I called my wife and ask her if they got this engine at their warehouse/workshop. She said they got this engine but not in “half cut” (half cut means they cut the front of the car only to include the dashboard, and all the parts in the engine bay) condition, only the engine and gear box.

But then, my dad wants to install the power steering system and eyeing this EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) engine. So I need this engine in “half cut” condition and have to be in budget.

So wish me luck in finding those engines that will in the budget and ultimately, passed in registering it at JPJ.

MITSUBISHI SIRIUS

4G61
The 4G61 normally displaces 1.6 L, but there are two distinct variations: An earlier version uses 3.03x3.39 in bore and stroke, while a later one has moved to 3.24x2.95 in. This engine was always DOHC 16-valve and used either ECFI or MPFI fuel injection. A turbocharged version was also produced for the Mirage. The 4G61 does not have balance shafts like the other 4G6x motors. Instead, it has different components, some of which can be used on the "Silent Shaft" motors.

Applications:
3.03x3.39
1989 Mitsubishi Mirage ECFI
1989-1990 Dodge Colt MPI
3.24x2.95
1990-1992 Mitsubishi Mirage MPFI

4G62
The larger 1.8 L 4G62 was an SOHC 8-valve unit for longitudinal RWD/4WD use. With a 3.17x3.46 in bore and stroke, it displaces 1795 cc.

Applications:
1988 Mitsubishi Cordia
1988 Mitsubishi Tredia

4G63
The 4G63 was a 2.0 L (1997 cc) version. Again, there were two different bore and stroke versions, and both SOHC and DOHC were produced. It is found in various Mitsubishi models including the Eclipse and Galant but also appears in Chrysler-branded versions of the Eclipse: the Eagle Talon and Plymouth Laser.It comes with either 4/6/& 7-bolt mains. The increase in main-bolts, is to reduced 'cam-crawl';the 7-bolt is used in the VR-4 & Evolution. This makes for swaps into other vehicles difficult, except the Galant GSX*.

Note that the 4G63 block in the Eclipse and Galant (and other Mitsubishi and Chrysler passenger cars) is not identical to the 4G63 block found in the Mitsubishi Mighty Max and Dodge Ram 50. The car-bound 4G63 has a bore and stroke of 3.35 in (85 mm) and 3.46 in (88 mm), whereas the truck 4G63 has a bore and stroke of 3.31 in (84 mm) and 3.54 in (90 mm).

Output for the US-spec 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is 271 hp (202 kW) at 6500 RPM with 273 ft.lbf (370 Nm) of torque at 3500 RPM. It has a cast iron engine block and aluminum DOHC cylinder heads. It uses MPI multi-point fuel injection, has 4 valves per cylinder, is turbocharged and intercooled and features forged steel connecting rods.

In the United Kingdom, a special Lancer Evolution, the FQ-400, produces 302.13 kW (405.2 hp), from a 4G63 engine. At 202.9 hp (151.3 kW) per liter, it has possibly the highest specific output per liter of any production engine.

Racing
Its turbocharged variant, 4G63T (also sometimes referred to simply as the 4G63), has powered Mitsubishi vehicles in World Rally Championships for years in the Galant VR-4, Lancer Evolution, Carisma GT and Lancer WRC04. It was the powerplant of the Lancer Evolution when Tommi Mäkinen won his four sequential WRC championships. The engine is also used in a variety of turbocharged 2-liter models of Galant and Eclipse.

4G61 conrod length?
Any chance you would know what the conrod lengths would be for the 4G61 engines? I know the 4g63 ones but few know the 4G61 ones.
regards, Dave

Hi Dave, at the moment, I cant remember the actual conrod lengths. Mine have been modified to suits the car. I would ask my mechanic for that.

Can a stock 4g13 MPFI fitted in Lancer 90-91 be replaced with 4g93 considering it's weight and all?

Really would appreciate if the answer mailed at zirgham87@gmail.com

Thanks a bunch
