    Hi everyone, I'm Nacho, from Argentina.
    Here in my country DSM vehicles aren't very common. Most of the people here builds inline six Chevy Novas, Ford Falcons, and, in the 4 cylinder world, the stars of the show are mid 90's / fiats, all kind of Volkswagens, and a few Hondas...
    So... Some time ago, i had the chance to get my hands on a 1981 Mitsubishi Forte (L200 - Dodge D50), and looking info on this vehicle I found Project zero G, and my mind just blew up...
    But… Looking forward and searching more and more info, i crashed with this site… In opposite of regular people, i love FWD hatchback vehicles. Here a 94 Mitsubishi Colt / Mirage is a very cheap car. This makes me struggles between building the Forte, or buy and develop the Project on a Colt.
    I've decided to start by building the 4g63T engine and then see in what to put it on. Probably on the Colt.
    The problem that i have is that here, dsm parts are no easy to get. we dont have starions, and we dont have a lot of eclipses, talons and lasers waiting in junkyards so pieces are very difficult to get, and expensive when they appear.
    One day a friend come and said to me, did you know that Sonatas has the same engine? -what's a sonata? - it's a Hyundai car. - Oh, really? So i start looking at it, and i found several very cheap wrecks to buy engines and parts from. G4CP engine.
    Last week i bought, what it was supposet to be a head from a g1 Eclipse that has G6K 4 casted on one side, but looking some info on the web (here to be more accurate), I founded that this casting belongs to a 2g eclipse head. (It has small ports and other features that i don't recall now).
    What do you know about this G4CP engine?… I read that it is like a N/A 1g 6 bolt, with no oil squirters, the sonata is a n/a car, but i'm building turbo, should I install them? i saw that this is posible. but, is it really worth it? what do you think about this engine, do anyone has any experience working with it?
    I'm happy with 300 / 350 hp. or less...
    I'm an indecisive mess, i know. But i'm building this engine no matter what. if it's not a g4cp i'll just have to wait for a genuine 4g63... and that's gonna take some serious time to find.
    Thanks in advance!!!
    I'll post photos of the progress on the L200, but she is probably keeping the n/a 4632 engine with a little spice on it.

    Go to 4g61t.org, if you go with the Colt.
    Also lots of info on the Hyundai engine.
