    Thank you very much for your responses and input.The problem is solved and I am very happy that my rear engine is singing it's own sweet song.However, the suspected culprit was not a fault of the fuel system. It was because the coolant temp sensor wires and the BISS screw wires did not...

    Should I buy this engine rebuild kit?

    While I agree its not a bad deal, why spend the extra money on that when our engines have been proven into very, very high power levels with little modification to the stock long block? 400hp seems to be well within the capacity of the engine as long as you have the appropriate supporting...

    2G 2G FWD ELHS Potential Solution : 3S N/A Axles.

    I was having speaks with Kevin at Kiggly Racing a few months ago and got me really going on this idea he had for a potential solution to the seemingly unsolved 2G FWD Equal Length Half Shaft Mod.What we know that works: 90-92 1G FWD GST's have 25 spline/26mm axles just like the AWD. This is...

    What a fantastic build! Every little detail on that engine is superb! Keep up the tremendous effort!

    Limits of OE 6 bolt rotating assembly? (ARP hardware)

    Understood. I thought I mentioned that a properly built head was a part of the equation here. Since 4G63s are interference engines I can agree with the thought that 9,000 RPMs on stock springs is NOT a good idea.

    Limits of OE 6 bolt rotating assembly? (ARP hardware)

    Thanks for all of your responses!! This is just what I wanted to know. The amount of DSMs in New Mexico that actually reach anywhere near 500hp or 9k is few and far between. Since I plan on running two stock bottom ends with kiggly's street beehives I should be happy knowing this! Thanks so...

    Limits of OE 6 bolt rotating assembly? (ARP hardware)

    I'm sure most of you have seen the videos of the 700 all wheel horsepower Talon on the stock shortblock and I'm curious what all of your opinions are on the stock components. I think we all can agree that the stock 4G63 is very strong and with proper care in tuning can achieve great power...

    Did you cut out the plate that holds the COP?

    aluminium COP plate for vag coils

    I'm guessing since you're in Europe, Audi COP are very easy to come across and much more easily had rather than GM Coils or Hayabusa coils. I also wanted to add the welds are also very nice. Excellent piece. What else have you made?

    I didn't realize that. I was wrong.I'm pretty sure the turbine wheel looks correct.

    Holset hx35

    That's very sad. I have a spare good 8 blade HX35 compressor wheel if you want it for free. Just pay shipping. Also it looks like that compressor wheel is an CT-26 from a Toyota Supra or MR2. Virtually worthless.

    4G61T Block/4G64 Crank would it work ???

    Assuming you don't need a custom girdle or suitcase handles yes it will drop in. However try to think of the actual stroke of the 4G64 crank vs the 4G61 block internally.For example:People do 4G64 Cranks in 4G63s a lot but they have to machine the suitcase handles or girdles so that extra...

    1998 Eagle Talon street build monster

    Not to sh!t on your latest update but I would like to offer my opinion on the bracket you modified. It seems you have taken all of the strength from it by cutting its support out to make room for that drain. I suspect if you want to keep whatever is on that bracket from breaking off I would...

    1986 Mirage Turbo. AWD 4G63T conversion.

    Very cool. From all the information I've gathered about these cars that is possible but I've never heard of someone doing that here in the USA. Mostly because an 1987 Mirage Turbo is rare and a Colt AWD is rare.

    Saving an injured 1996 Eclipse RS

    I vote for a Restoration. In the coming years the car could be worth money since its a rare factory color. Now, my opinion aside I'd like to see a EVO or Kia 4G63 AWD swap.;)OH! And a talon rear end conversion would be sweet.

    Resolved Noob here, researching Turbo Upgrade to 300hpish?

    If you REALLY want to build a motor make plans for 500+hp. There is simply almost no need to build a 4G63 for 350hp. Oh, and a 6 bolt would be good.

    Resolved Noob here, researching Turbo Upgrade to 300hpish?

    While I agree with him, I cannot help but cringe when I saw $5,700 to reach 300hp. Unless you want to keep some of those mods for future? But you do NOT, I repeat DO NOT need a lot of those things to reach your ultimate goal of 310hp.Remember, stock engines can handle a lot of abuse. Noting...

    2G Shortend Rear Lower Control Arms?

    Is there any demerit to shorten the rear lower control arms? Since I don't know much about suspension I figure I ask here. I know people will ask why I want shorter lower control arms but I prefer to keep the reason to myself. I'm not trying to come off as arrogant or unfriendly, I would just...

    New tsi

    At 207,631 Miles on my 96 AWD TSi I'd say IF you're doing a timing belt you MAY want to replace the crank angle sensor and the cam angle sensor. I just refreshed the motor on my car and reinstalled it when I found out the crank sensor went bad.

    wondering if this is a good bottom build or not

    Is this a new or a used engine?If new, then it sounds good. What are your goals?If used, then what do the main and rod bearings look like? Any gouges or noticeable wear? Do the cylinder walls still have a good amount of cross-hatching left in them? Any Scratches or groves?

    2G LSD in a 1G?

    I have a 2G LSD rear end from a 96 Talon, will it fit my friend's 1991 Eclipse GSX? I would've posted this thread in the Drivetrain Tech sub forum but I don't have enough posts yet. I've read here ( Tranny gear ratios for DSMs ) that the ratios are the same, but aren't the cases different? :hmm:

    Red N' Tacky for Engine Bearings?!

    A friend reccomended to me to use Red N' Tacky as assembly lube for my bearings. So we did and we preformed the proper torque spec in the correct sequence and the rotating assembly turned great. Fast Forward about a minute with NO changes or additions and we can't turn the motor over at ALL!WTF
