Finally, it's 4G61T

This morning, I went to the warehouse/workshop with the mechanic to check a half cut that I've been looking since last week. This is what we found.

Original car : Mitsubishi Mirage (Turbo)

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.

1990-1992 Mitsubishi Mirage MPFI

The front cut was good and the engine is clean. Almost like a brand new engine (except the outside condition of it) but it is missing some part such as the "air flow controller" and fuse box. The worst part of it, the air flow controller. It is vital and if I didn't have the parts, even if I have the engine, the mechanic cannot install it to the car.

After we left the warehouse, I discuss with my mechanic where we can get those missing part. To cut the story short, in 20 minutes, he manage to get the vital parts from his friend.

Actually, everybody was looking this type of engine. Since it is compatible with Proton Iswara, so the demand for this engine (that is 4G61) are very high. Not forgetting that this engine are equipped with turbo system (that is quite rare for this engine), makes this engine are most sought after. Even the mechanic try to persuade me to take another engine because he also want this engine. Haha...

Well that's the report on my mission to find an engine. Now, the transplanting job.

Below are two engine that I found there also.

I don't know the model number but people always refer this engine as "Black Top".
