Hey guys just litterally bought a 1999 eclipe gs for 500 bucks. WHAT A STEAK. only problem is that it wont shift into reverse no worries thought because i can rebuild it. I'm still a n33b to mitsubishi's so i figured i'd ask u guys an engine question.

Should i swap it to the 4g63t

or just keep the 4g64

can anyone tell me the pros n cons of both n which one they would recommend doing n why


thanks
triv

Ok, well if this is a street driven car i would suggest building the 4g64 in your car now. To reach 500 hp your going to have to build internals either way. The turbo components will bolt up like they would to a 4g63 (after you swap to a dohc head from the 4g63). Decide what fuel you want to run (pump or e85) and pick your fuel system and turbo based off that.

As far as the awd swap there are write ups on that, just search. It is easier to do on the spyders i believe. You might as well find a cheap gsx parts car so you can pull various parts for your 4g64 build as well. You would probably save money in the long run.

I would also suggest swapping to an eprom ecu and running ecm link or getting a flashable ecu. Just search on here if your unsure what i'm talking about.

And throw up some pictures, you got that really cheap! O and make sure there is no rust, you definitely want to take care of all rust/maintenance FIRST.

good luck
