4G63 wide block mitsi lancer/evo engine.

it will have more power and less fuel useage then the astron 2.6 too.

well to be specific it will produce more power for the same amount of fuel.

I'm not a mitsi man only owning a mid 90's vr4 and a v6 94 pajero but it would be cool to see a pajero gearbox GTO v6 turbo engine combo in a ute.
Waiter...there is a drought in my glass.

Find out what caused the blockage otherwise it'll just block somewhere else and destroy the engine again.

the blockage was in the balance shaft ive removed them and blocked off there oil galary so should be sweet and getting a new oil pump engine builder said it is very common for them to block

so i should be sweet with no balance crap and a smaller oil pump chain less things to go wrong

Does the engine feel any different without the balance shaft? More vibration, rattle, noise, harshness?

Just asking purely out of interest.

I've got the same Astron II 2.6 in my pajero. Mine is still carby but a bit if a special motor. Runs a nitrided crank, stump puller cam, no bal shafts etc. I didnt notice an increase in vibration after removing the shafts either. 8)

I'm nearly ready to do an efi conversion (have the magna already) which should make it more uniform in terms of performance (especially when up on odd angles lol). They are a good, simple, torquey motor. If you're wanting to go efi let me know we can swap info.

Only thing to watch is the top bolt on the long chain guide...very often breaks after constant vibration over the years. Most timing kits come with an upgraded (larger) bolt which solves that thought.

I personally dont know if I'd want a turbo 2L evo motor in my truck...have a very high hp one in a rwd which is hard enough to hang onto at the best of times...forget it in the wet :lol:

yea i looked at doing that conversion but was like i love my lpg

looked at the evo conversion and have the motor in a box but i dnt need to be going fast or draw attention my self

ill probably be going twin carbs running lpg and normal gass just for the fact the rebuilt motor is relibale as now and only cost sfa to run and i have a spar everything in parts for it now

just the factory carb lets it down

Make a manny for twin 45s and a decent extractor setup and you'll be off like the proverbial bride's nighty... :lol:

I think there is a 16L twin manifold you can buy which shouldn't need much mangling to fit. Dont waste your time with the twin solex etc setup do it once do it right.
