    2G 2G Stock Waste Gate Spring?

    Typical boost is around 12 psi but the ECU algorithm doesn't exactly work off of boost pressure. Are you still & planning to use the stock MAF setup? The ECU monitors the volume of air, throttle position, etc. & inject the programmed amount of fuel to achieve the targeted performance. It will...

    2G Does timing belt tension change with oil pressure?

    No relationship between TB tension & oil pressure (or coolant). The tension can be slightly different at different times due to rotation & the position of the cams when the motor is turned off. This is assuming the TB tension is set correctly & your hydraulic tensioner is in good working order.

    2G 2G Stock Waste Gate Spring?

    If you're planning on staying close to stock why not plumb the wastegate lines through the OEM boost control solenoid & let the stock ECU control boost. The factory setup shouldn't care who's wastegate you're using, internal or external.

    @pauleyman looked at the intake & exhaust section & agree this is from the EVO 4G63-Turbo Workshop Engine Overhaul Manual. I saw the "ear" around the Timing Belt in the diagrams which made me wonder in the first place. I going with the DSM FSM guidelines. Thanks all.

    Resolved Valve Cover & RTV install question

    I'm installing my valve cover after replacing the valve stem seals. I found this in the 4G63-Turbo Workshop Engine Overhaul Manual & it is different than the FSM. Is the FSM guidelines for the RTV (Ultra Grey for me) better than what this is showing? Which way should I go? Thanks community.

    General Low octane ping.

    The government is more & more forcing manufacturers on fuel & emissions and less & less cars have to use premium consequently. The premium may be older & gotten stale if the station has low amount of customers using it. The octane level goes down as gasoline ages.

    General Low octane ping.

    The inside of my car's fuel door has a sticker that say "premium fuel only". I trust the engineers at Mitsubishi took the time to put the sticker where I couldn't miss it for a reason & I haven't tried low octane.

    i don't like light weight flywheels on the street & DD.

    Stainless steel is a poor material for any fastener which needs high clamping forces. It is soft & galls when threaded to steel (ferrous metals). They do work fairly well with dissimilar material like aluminum.

    Are these welds factory? (4G63 head)

    I have a spare '98 head and it does not have this same welding. My guess is Mitsubishi had a casting problem an at least one of their production runs & the weld is a factory rework fix to avoid scrapping these heads. Funny we're all '97's with this welding. My car's production date is March 1997.

    2G Overheating on idle (Stops when rev)

    So it got hot when you got home. Was it low on coolant again also? If it was low get a coolant system pressure tester & check to see if you can find a leak that only happens hot & under pressure. Easier than jumping right into pull your head.
